Looking for information on this Ziebell family all children of Caroline/Carolina Ziebell from Schivelbein, Pommern, Prussia who emigrated to Milwaukee, Wisconsin. John David Ziebell had a brother William Ziebell, a sister Bertha M. Ziebell (Kunz). John David Ziebell seems to have gone by 'David'. For a long time he lived with his married sister Bertha M. (Ziebell) Kunz and her husband Jacob J. Kunz in Milwaukee at their home 2711 Grand Avenue. Later photographs show 'David Ziebell with a wife (very blond) identified as 'my wife Lissi' (possibly an Elizabeth? The town of WATERTOWN is mentioned in a couple of the photographs. It is believed that this 'David Ziebell' had at least a daughter because one photo says 'David's daughters children'. The children pictured are also daughters.

The mother of this family emigrated in 1892 as a widow and went to live also in the household of Jacob J Kunz and her daughter Bertha M (Ziebell) Kunz who lived in Milwaukee. The mother Carolina Ziebell from Schivelbein, Pommern, Prussia was buried in Union Cemetery in Milwaukee (see Find a Grave.) I put some additional info on family there.

AM HOPING someone who is a descendant recognizes this family group and will contact me. I do have some very old photographs. Sometimes members of this family were enumerated in census as Siebel, but they were really Ziebell.
