SCHAMBACH/SCHAMBECK family in Dubuque Iowa in mid 1800s
Looking for a SCHAMBACH or SCHAMBECK family, (mother Margaret and the following children) who emigrated from Hesse Darmstadt, Germany in about 1846 and settled for some time in Dubuque Iowa.
Children were Jacob, b 1826....Maria, b 1828....Anna Margaret, b 1832...Sophia, b 1836, possibly married to a Caspar KAUFMAN....Katherine, b 1839, married to Philip Apffel.
Any helpful info on these folks will be much appreciated. I am trying to determine the correct surname. Also a date of death for the mother Margaret will help. The father may have been Johannes Philipp who may have died in Germany before the emigration.
