I'm seeking any information about John Steeps,b. about 1817 in Prussia and married to Louisa Kueckhoefers in Prussia; came to America between 1850-1854. I believe his mother was Maria Stips, born about 1798 in Prussia. She probably came with them. Their children were Rosa 1864, Frank J.1867, William 1858, Bertha 1848, Gustav 1850, Ernestina 1854 and Louisa 1856. They were in the 1860-1880 Winnebago Co., census. Does anyone have these folks in their family data? I'd like to find out where in Prussia they came from...what happened to them? Rosa was my GGrandmother. I'll be glad to share info on her side. Thanks..
