In Reply to: Palen Family of Dubuque, Iowa by Cindy Curtright Kay of 160

Hi, Cindy: How are you doing with your research? If you may remember, Barbara Forman Palen was my great grandmother. She was born in Baschleiden, Lux., on 2 January 1839; emigrated at age 18 in 1857, and married Gregoire Nicholas Palen in Dubuque, Iowa on 12 Feb 1858. Between 1858 and 1886, they had fourteen children! She died on 6 March 1910 and is buried in Mt. Calvary Cemetery in Dubuque. Her father was Jean Pierre Forman (1802 - ?) from Baschleiden and her mother was Anna Marie Huberty (1796-1857). They were married in Boulaide. If you send me your e-mail address, I'll send copies of her obiatury and grave marker.
