They married on 29 August, 1862 in Vandenbergh County, Indiana. Both of which came to the U.S. from Germany.  John believed to have come to the country on the ship “Joseph Maxwell” at Baltimore, Maryland in 1860 via Venezuela.  Would like to learn more of his and Elizabeth’s movements from their arrival to the U.S. to Indiana and their families in Germany.

Schwab, Wehner

I have been researching the SCHWAB family from Peoria, IL. I have found Henry SCHWAB born on May 1870 in Peoria, parents Carl (Charles) Ludwig SCHWAB and Elizabeth WEHNER, in the 1870 census. In the 1880 census I found Elizabeth in Tazewell County with 6 children, last was Henry. In the 1900 census I found a Henry SCHWAB in Livingston County. I found a Henry SCHWAB in 1910 Whiteside County, but not my Henry.
My question is the Henry SCHWAB born in 1870 is the same Henry in Livingston County?
