I am Robert Leibold, of Fayetteville, Arkansas. I was named for my great-grandfather Robertus Leybold, who was born on June 7, 1866 in Lautlingen (near Burladingen) Schwarzwaldkreis, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany.
Robertus' father, Christian Leybold, was born in 1841 in the same German state, Lautlingen, and was married in 1863 to Magdalena Kramer.
Robertus' grandfather, Josef Leybold, was born in 1815, again, in Lautlingen, and married Catherina Roth (born in 1819) in 1840.
My great-grandfather's surname, "Leybold," was apparently altered in spelling upon entry into the United States, and is now spelled "Leibold," and often incorrectly pronounced "Lee-bold."
Hope this helps a bit. I'm currently trying to dig further into great-grandpa's past. I'll let you know if I learn anything.
