I don't know if this is related or not, but have a few Geib members that I have been searching for connections to immigrating from Bavaria, Germany, and living in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois and Wisconsin. I have posted the note below on several of these forums searching for Geib connections, especially if ending in Aurora Illinois or Wisconsin.
Let me know if you see a connection.
Here is the note:
"Looking for a relative of Jacob Geib, father immigrated from Germany. kids were Jacob, Bernard, and others. Father was Fran about 1870-1874 DOB, mother Anna, born in the 1860's, Jacob & Bernard 1914-1924 along with other siblings/children of Anna Heitkotter and Frank Geib from Germany.
Other related family members and ancestors are: Krone, Miller, Geib, Horber, Vilet, and Schwartz.
If you have connections to this family, please state which and what they are, as I have some information obtained that I would love to pass onto those related to this family and/or obtain missing connections to this family that came from Germany & Bavaria to the United States.
Much of this family ended up living in Aurora Illinois and Wisconsin into the late 1800's and 1900's."
