"... Hermann Burbach was my G-Grandfather and died in 1896. Finding info on him has been difficult. ..."
Have you collected Hermann Burbach's death notice, obituary and family thanks (Danksagung) from Milwaukee's German papers? The family published them there. I've indexed them in "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950). There are over 100 entries or references to Burbach in the current data file. Other surnames connected with Burbach in the index include Guember Schendt Mirgeler Roth Dunton Becker Gottschalk Scheidhauer Rutteln Derks Tesch Vanhaag.
