Per my Grandfather "3 brothers immigrated from Germany" possibly entering thru Philadelphia...2 traveled to Virginia and 1 across Pennsylvannia....who lost contact with the other two. Karl Jacob's birthdate is Jan. 1, 1883? He married Anna Catherine Caroline Bermann in Washington D.C. Nov. 17, 1857. This information was obtained from another relative doing research...possibly from a prayerbook kept by Anna. I have not found actually documentation. Anna and Karl moved back and forth between Washington-1858, Philadelphia-1861, Washington-1865...finally moving to Chicago-1867, in the process having 3 children between Phil. or Washington. Graceland Cemetery in Chicago has "several" Huhns interred there. some of whom are: Karl Jacob d. 1871 age 38 born 1833? Joseph d. 1891 age 60 born 1831?--possible brother to Karl, John d. 1881 age 90 born 1791? possible father, Catherine d. 1879 age 75 born 1804? possible mother. Am trying to prove the relationship....both Karl and Joseph are listed as saloon keepers in census records. No death cert. exists for Karl but does for the others. Karl died 6 mos bef. records were kept. Other relatives have never heard the 3 brother theory, nor do they know the other Huhns interred. Where did Jacob marry Johanna??? His age is right in line with my "Huhns".
