Merboltz Family Genealogy Forum
Hey jim, a couple of things here yes my great great great grandfather was Henry Merboth, and he immigrated from germany around the 1850's i believe. The reason of his immigration was he formed gang green in his toe after an accident on the railroad and the german government was going to kill him since they thought it was contagious so he escaped with his wife Louisa to the U.S. Now, unless Lizze was a nickname for one of my relatives im not sure if merboth is her correct last name here is a page which shows Henry and Louisa and their children in the census records. Also there are very very few merboths in the U.S which are all direct relation to me. Please get back to me and i can try to contact my relatives in illinois about this and get some documents scanned if your interested.
