When my great grandfather came to the US he dropped off part (unsure how much) of his last name since no one could pronounce it. He kept the first part which was Jacober. His name was Joseph Jacober. I am not sure what his middle name was. He did have at least one brother who also came over. They were from Alsais Loraine (the German part). He married Ada Boone and they had 4 children that lived I am not sure of two of the boys' names. I think the youngest boy was Richard but called Dick, but I could be wrong. My grandfather was the middle boy and his name was Alfred Joseph, his sister's name is Mary. Mary married and her married name is Thackery. She and her husband had 3 daughters Dixie, Betty, and Marylee. Dixie married Ceven Cullens and they have 3 boys I believe, Ceven, Curt, and I can't remeber. Betty married (I can't remeber her married name) and had 3 daughters Kristine, Jessica, and Jennifer. Marylee's married name is Williamson they have a son maybe 2. Alfred Joseph married Norma Jean Denzine (Forbes)(SP?) Norma had two daughters from her first marriage Helen Ann Denzine and Mary Lee Denzine. Norma and Alfred had 2 children Wayne Dee who is unmarried and Patricia Jean (my mom). Patricia married Leonard George Anicker. They had 4 children Rebecca Dale (me), I married Mack B. Stanley and we have 1 son, Orion Hunter; Clyde Alfred, he married Rebecca Louise Krieger and they have no children (yet); Audrey Jean (deceased); and Brian Leonard (unmarried). I am trying to fine out Joseph's full last name and more about his family.
