I have a William Herb that lived in Alton, Madison Co, IL who was born in Wuettemburg, Germany. He was my grandmother's father. I believe he might have died in 1883 as I've just found a record in the Alton Cemetery book of a William Herb. My g-grandmother remarried after his death. I was told he died while still in his 20's. My grandmother, Amelia Herb was born in 1876.
Wondering if you your Eva Catherine might have been his sister. I don't have any info on the parents of William or even when he came to US. But I have found there was also a Jacob Herb that lived in Madison Co. and also a George Herb.
