Therese, I had forgotten about your message and my response to it but recently for the second time I hear from a family whose ancestor was named John J. Reeb and he was married at one time to a Cordia Rutherford and had three sons. He was born very close to the same time as a son of John Reeb and Elizabeth Michel. I have a copy of the marriage record of Johanes Reeb and Elizabeth Michel and also a marriage record for a son of theirs also named John Reeb. This marriage record shows an age which makes him appear to have been born in the first five years after 1860. He married a woman by the name of Mary E. or in other records I have found for her as Anna Maria Gendler. The marriage record does state that his father was John Reeb and mother was Elizabeth Michael. Then I have a third record which is a birth record for a son of John Reeb and Mary Gendler Reeb by the name of John, born in 1899. In other words three Johns three generations. I have tried to find the family of John Reeb and Elizabeth Michel in Census but so far have not found them in any county in Illinois. Can you tell me if you have seen them in any census record and if so how is the name spelled, which county, which state and which year? Or do you by any chance have any further information on the descendants of John and Elizabeth (Michel) Reeb? If you can send an e-mail to me via private e-mail I would appreciate it otherwise post it here on genforum. I have a lot of questions that I want to resolve in regards to John Reeb and Elizabeth Michel and their descendants. John V. Reeb
