I am seeking information about my gg grandfather Joseph Leib, b. 27 Dec 1835 in Wurttemberg, Germany and d. 3 Jan 1912 in Fairview twp, York Co., PA. About 1857 in PA he married Wilhelmina Neu/Ney (1839-1917), the daughter of Georg Bernhard Neu/Ney (1812-1901) and his first cousin Christina Neu (1815-1844).
According to Joseph Leib's barely legible death certificate, his father's name was an I. or J. Leib and mother was Barbara. Her last name is hard to read but could say Smeister. Unfortunately, I don't know when Joseph immigrated from Wurttemberg.
Joseph and Wilhelmina (Neu) Leib had children as follows:
Mary Catherine (1860-1913), md. John Von Straten
Elizabeth (1869-1968), md. a Stigler
Anna (1872-1946), md. Henry Jacob Deeds
Josephine Leah (1876-1928), md. Frederick Schubauer
It appears these children were all born around Marietta in Lancaster County. It also might be important to note that Wilhelmina Neu/Ney's half sister Catherine Eva Ney married a man from Berks County and their father Georg Bernhard Neu is buried in Berks County so there is a chance that the Leibs may have been in or around Berks Co. before moving out to Lancaster Co. and finally to York Co.
I'm hoping someone might have some info on Joseph Leib and his family and ancestry. Thanks for your help.
