My Grandfather's name was Joseph A (Anthony) Ebert and his father's name was Anton or Anthony Ebert.
Anton/Anthony was the "black sheep" of the Austrian family that owned an inn outside of Vienna. Unfortunately, I do not know which direction outside of Vienna. I understand that the family had three sons and Anton/Anthony was the one who emigrated to the United States.
My Grandfather, Joseph was born in the late 1880's, so I think my Great-Grandfather emigrated to the US maybe in the 1870's or early 1880's.
When the parents who owned the inn died, Anton/Anthony went back to Austria to try and claim his right in the inn or estate -- so I was told by my father, Gregory Ebert, who was the grandson of Anton/Anthony Ebert. As I understand the story, he came back to the United States with nothing from the family.
Anton/Anthony settled in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA and married and had a son and daughter. Joseph Anthony Ebert was his son and he is my Grandfather. His sister Mary married a man named Steinkellner and they located in Beloit, Wisconsin, USA.
Joseph Anthony Ebert (my Grandfather) married Eda Otten and they lived in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA and had five children: Robert, Josephine, Gregory (my father), Frances (died at 9 years old) and Joseph.
All of the above relatives are dead and I am trying now to put together the pieces of the Ebert family.
I will be searching for Anton/Anthony Ebert's parents names and the date he arrived in the US and what year he was born, to provide more information.
