Family lived in the Burnstown area of Brown Co. and later Cottonwood Co. Joseph, Sr., died 1879, wife Margaret 1908.
I would appreciate any information on origins of family and information on any other family members that may have immigrated.

Thank you for your response. Do you know anything about Joseph Sr, or his wife Margaret in regards to siblings or where they came from? Thanks so much!

I am writing for Kathleen Ruby LaBarge who is the grandaughter of Wentzel Ruby b. 1869 to Joseph and Anna Arbes Rubey. He came west to Spokane, Washington and died there in 1919. The entire family has remained mostly in Spokane. We would love to correspond with you.
