My father was born in Iowa Falls, Iowa, and his father was John Conrad Ubben born Sep 17, 1906 in Ackley, Iowa. My father has researched this line pretty far back to my gggggrandfather who was Nittert Hagen Ubben. All we know is he was born in 1772 and Died June 24, 1844 in Rysum, Hannover, Germany. His son eildert Seeden Ubben was born May 15 1826 in Rysum, Hannover, Germany and died Aug 25, 1880 in Alden, IA. I can continue, but if anyone thinks there might be a link to this branch of Ubben's please respond.
