Need help on grandfather's father.

My grandfather was George William Bichlemeir and his mother was Anna Orschell of New Alsace, Indiana. She is in the 1870 Census at home with parents Jacob and Mary Orschell and called "Anna.' In the 1880 census she is listed as "Mary A."

She married a man whose name sounded like "Hannibal" ; they had two sons -Frank Andrew (b.3/4/1884) and George William (b.9/10/1886). Shortly after 1886 the father died and she remarried Andreas (Andrew) Bichlmeir.

Next I find her is in Cincinnati in 1907. Granddad went to Nebraska in 1899 and the brother lived in Campbell County Kentucky.

Any help on this "Hannibal" is greatly appreciated. (Also posting to Hamilton Co, Ohio & Campbell Co,Kentucky).
