Ebbesmeyer Family Genealogy Forum
Sorry Patti has not answered you. I am also an Ebbesmeyer descendant. However, I'm not sure how we may be connected. My gr-gr-grandfather was Joseph Ebbesmeyer who was born in 1821 in Germany and settled in Fort Madison, Iowa. His children were born there in the 1850's. I have recently contacted some previously unknown cousins who still live in Iowa, but somewhere down the line the spelling of the name was changed to Ebbesmier. They had no idea they were related to the Ebbesmeyers until I found the connection. Do you suppose our families might be connected? Let me hear from you. Hope we hear from Patti also.
