Pribbenow - Wall

I am just getting started in doing research. I am researching "Wall" & "Dunlavy" and Pribbenow is the maiden name of Louise Charlotte Wall (born in 1884) who married Charles Ephraim Wall in 1900 and lived in Oklahoma

Any info would be appreciated.
This is what I have so far.


Ferdinand Pribbenow was born in 1856 in Hohen Zaden, Germany, the son of Gotleib Pribbenow and Sophia Charlotte Bestcher Pribbenow. Gotleib was a stone and brick mason. The family tradition says the ten generations before Gotleib, their ancestor, who spelled his name Pribbeneau deserted the French Army and settled in Germany.

Frederica Harrenburg, born in 1852 was the daughter of Johann Harrenburg and Charlotte Luense Harrenburg. Ferdinand Pribbenow and Frederica were married in 1880 in the Schloss Church in Stettin. This was considered the finest church building in town. The Kaiser sometimes visited there. Ferdinand and Frederica left Germany in 1882. They left on the ship, Polaria. They landed in New York City and then went to Falls City, Nebraska, and lived near Ferdinand’s brother, Carl. In 1884, in order to have a home of their own, Ferdinand, his wife and childred moved to Goffs, Kansas, and then moved to Guthrie, Oklahoma in 1892. They moved to a farm in Lincoln County between Agra and Carney.
Before coming to Oklahoma they were active members of the Evangelical Church. In Oklahoma, they joined the Friends Church.

Louise Charlotte Pribbenow was born in 1884 to Ferdinand and Frederica. She married C. E. (Charles Ephraim) Wall in 1900. The had a son also that they named Charles Ephraim Wall, who was born in 1914.

Charles "Ephraim" Wall was born in 1914. The C. E. Wall family moved to Perkins, OK, to a farm on the Cimarron River. In 1926 C.E. built the house down by the River which still stands at the end of “Wall Street”.

Ephraim Wall married Sybil Adela Fiala in 1935. Ephraim and Sybil had several children. One child died within a few days of birth. There was a set of stillborn twins. They also had sons, Charles, Roy, David, and daughters, Donna and Carol. Ephraim and Charles still live in the Perkins area.
