Hi and thanks for the reply!
The birth date we have for John Weiblen is 11 Oct 1820. The family has no knowledge of John's first wife or the date of his marriage to Barbara Ann Fulmer. They were married in Chur Switzerland where she worked as a practical nurse. Their only child was born 3 Sep 1859 in Chur. I don't really know that all of them emigrated to the US together but they were together in Kansas from about 1875 until John's death. I don't know where they were from the 1860 date of immigration until the move to Kansas. John died in Kansas 2 Aug 1878. His youngest son, Conrad, stayed with the step-mother and they continued farming the homestead until his death in 1911. The older boys went their own way and we have no further information on them.
How certain are you of the birthdate of Johann Veit Weiblen? What sort of record did it come from? I don't know where the family got the date we use for John. His grave is on the family homestead and perhaps on some kind of stone. I'll have to look into that.
I can't find Neuhausen an der Erms on any of my maps. What larger city is in the area?
