My great-great grandmother was Mary Kalas. She emigrated to the US in 1880 from Germany with her mother, Maria,who was German-born and remarried to Charles Giebel at the time of emigration. Maria and Charles had a daughter, Anna. They settled in Plymouth County, Iowa near a Wilhelm Kalas (spouse Maria Erhardt), whose decendent still lives on the same land. Any information about Mary's father, whom I assume died in Germany, would be greatly appreciated.
