Re: Zeeb emigrants of Wuerttemberg, Germany

Guten tag, Herr Kemmler. Wie gehts es Ihnen (that is about all the German I can remember from the old high school days),

I am a descendent of Jno. Zeeb, who emigrated from Wuerttemberg (assuming Wurt'Brg is shorthand for Wuerttemberg) around 1850. He was born in 1823. He married a Caroline Zeeb from Hesse-Hamburg. She was born in 1821. They moved to the Buffalo, New York area. Here is information from the 1880 census:

I have determined that the Zeeb name is not quite as uncommon as I once thought. If you have any other information on the Zeebs from Wuerttemberg I would love to learn about it.
