Looking for relatives of Josef Silberberger; spouse Mary Steinmetz; Possibly from Briklegg Tyrol Austria. Date of birth March 16, 1860 (approximate) came to us about 1880; wife Mary born around April 1869. Relative who signed for their marriage in 1888 was Stephanie Steinmetz. Any possible information would be appreciated. Thank you Terry Silberger
