I am Caroline Nubel, daughter of Wesley, Granddaughter of Julius, Greatgranddaughter of Hermann. I am thinking that Hermann, Joseph and Edward may be brothers. The stories that I have heard have been that 3 brothers came to NY from Germany in the late 1880's. My ggfather married Johanna Boehning and moved to Islip NY. I've heard of Walter, Oscar Henry, and Adele (I may even have some pictures of them). They are the cousins of my grandfather Julius George Nubel, b 1907? d 1980. I started looking into the family years ago, but haven't gotten back to it. My grandmother had a trunk with traveling papers in it from the 1920's that seem to have been records of bringing another Nubel over. If I remember right, this Nubel came from a town called Nordholz and traveled through either Stade or Hamburg. I hope this is helpful to someone.
