I am trying to find connections to my grandfather's family. His name was Herman (or Hermann) Keibel. I have no clue to a middle name, but that doesn't exclude the possibility. He was born 11/30/1878 in Berlin or the nearby area. He came to the USA sometime before his marriage 10/16/1912 to Theresie (or Theresia) Epp in Spokane, WA, where my father, Harold John Keibel, was born in 1915. They moved eventually to Grants Pass, OR, where my parents decided to marry and I was born. He died 2/26/1951. I have no clue about his exact origin or names of any family in Germany, or exactly when he emigrated. Years ago my father told me there were relatives in Schleswig-Holstein in about 1957, but I know no details about that, either.
