My wife's grandfather Peter Zbaren was born sept 26,1846 in Lenk, Canton of Berne, Switzerland.[emigrated to St. Louis Mo. in 1870].He had 2 brothers, John and Christin.
The ship Labrador arrived in NY 11/7/1884 from Havre[manifest # 80581] with a 33 year old man Gottleib Zbaren[father ?] and 5 children Alfred 1884,Gottleib 1882, Johann [John] 1880, Christin 1877 and Gottleib 1875 [Same name?]
This John and Christin are too young to be Peter's Brothers.
Lenk is a beautiful small mountain town with a LARGE number of Zbaren families.[ Like Smith or Jones in the USA!]
