Looking for any info on Urban Stocker, born 1860 in Switzerland. Urban immigrated to the U.S., I don't know the date, or where he sailed from. He lived out the rest of his life in Cook co. Illinois, where he died in 1888. Urban married Rosa Luxemburg, who was herself a German immigrant. She was born in 1846, in Germany, and died in 1925, in Cook co. Illinois. They had a daughter named Jennie Margaret Stocker, who married Stanley Case. I would love to know who Urban's parents were, and where they came from in Switzerland. Any help would be appreciated.
