Nancy, I now know Bertha's family was in Wayne County for certain. I found a death record for an August Lebeck and it did have his parent's listed, going from there to the census I found he was Bertha's brother. The connection being the fact that Napoleon and Bertha also had a daughter named Bertha, born in 1904, that is not listed on the census. Napoleon's wife died in 1905 so someone had to have the baby Bertha with them, she turns up living with the Lebecks as granddaughter in the 1920 census. So, now that I have parents for Bertha I need to get greedy and find them on a passenger list. Thanks again for your help. I feel so foolish having people look in the wrong county, all I can say is that I'm sorry.
