Great grandfather, Killian WEBER, was born in 1851 in Switzerland, somewhere near Klosters in Graubunden. He emigrated to the U.S. in 1868 and died here in 1905. While in the U.S., he married a girl from Klosters and the family story is that they had lived close to each other in Switzerland, but had never met there. If the story is correct, he probably lived in the Prąttigau Valley......but we have no idea of the village.

Would it do any good to write to Chur with this little information, or do I need to wait until the brick wall has a hole in it? I will value all suggestions.
