I am actively researching our family as well. This is what I have come up with so far.

Looking at that picture I feel as though I am looking in a Mirror. Change the beard and mustache a bit and it is rather uncanny. The ears, the nostrils are identical. Amazing

John and Katherine Pfeiffer are my great great grand parents. They both were born in New York and their parents immigrated to America prior to 1850. Jacob was one of their sons. He was born in June, 1884. His brother, Antony, a millwright, was my grandfather. Freda Mareske, a shoe dresser, born 1886, in Germany and immigrated in 1892 at age 6. Freda was John’s wife and my grandmother. Her brother Paul, born 1889, and Earnst, born 1891, are my great uncles. Katherine’s maiden name was Kitzner, (approx) she was born 1856 and John was born 1850, both being born in New York. John was born in new York, as were George and Antony. The moved to Dubuque between 1879 and 1885 where Rosa was born. Freda was 6 years old.

Roy son 1929

My dad said there were a total of 14 children. My guess is that two died and were not listed in the census where I got this information.
They lived at 828 E. 16th St. Dubuque, Iowa
Freda lived at 1354 Maple St., Dubuque, Iowa which is about two blocks from the Pfeiffers.
Freda’s parents were Andrew Mareske born Sept 1856 and Katherine Voelker born November 1860. They were all from Germany and immigrated to American 1n 1892 when Freda was 6 years old

Hope this helps.
