I am trying to find a transcription of the marriage record of Johann Diebold (also found as Dibolt/Dipolt/Dippolt) and Magdalena Adelhied Grass (also found Grafs) and the birth record of their son, Peter Joseph, born 16 May, 1856. Shortly after Peter's birth, the Diebold and Grass families moved to Dane County, Wisconsin. The Grass family arrived in this country 24 September, 1855. The parents were Lorenz and Anna Maria (Lapper) Grass. The Diebold family arrived in 1853 from France. Johann's parents were Joseph and Margaret. The families were Catholic and farmers. I believe John and Lena were married in 1855 from the little I have been able to find. Anything I have found only references Utica. I believe the records may be in a church only, but I have no idea which one, other than it will be Catholic. Records pertaining to Magdalena Adelheid are found under Magdalena, Lena, and Adelheid. Because of the multiple spellings of the last names, it has been difficult to find the correct records. Any help in locating the records would be greatly appreciated. I have tried (long distance) to find the records and it has been unfruitful to say the least. I am hoping that someone in the Utica area, familiar with old local church records might recognize the names. The families were very prompt about baptisms, etc.
