Christian Scheible, 1860, PA
Christian Scheible was born in Durrwenz-Muhlacker, Germany on 12 Jul 1819. He had at least 2 brothers, Wilhelm (possibly later of Mobile, AL) and Friedrich. He married Catherina Sorg in the US on 17 Aug 1851. They had 4 children as follows: Roszina born in Philadelphia in 1853, Friedrich born in Philadelphia in 1855, Ema born in 1858, and John born in 1860. Both Ema and John died in November of 1861 possibly of diptheria. Christian also seems to disappear about this time. I don't know what happened to him. Catherine next appeared in Hickory Twp, Mercer Co, PA in 1863 where she purchased land in her name, Catherine Shively. Roszina and Friederich were with her at least through 1870 according to census records. Roszina (Rosanna) was my great-grandmother. I don't know what became of her brother. Does anyone out there recognize this Scheible family?
