I am looking for information on the family of Jacob Steiger of Kansas who drowned when he and his team and wagon all fell through the ice of a frozen river on his way home. He was only 30 years old at his death. They lived near Atchison, n Clear Creek Township somewhere. Jacob was married to Bertha Meyer, who married William Schwant after Jacob's death. Jacob and Bertha were from the same village in Switzerland, and met on the boat to America. Jacob and Bertha had three daughters, Mary (my ggrandmother) who married Charles H. McDonald, Pauline who married Christian Schane, and Christina who married William Valburg. Bertha and William Schwant had at least 7 children.
