Sophia (Kaelber) Rolfs

Sophia (Kaelber) Rolfs

Posted: 1 Dec 2002 3:04AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Kaelber, Rolfs, Pickard, Holmes
I have an ancestor Claus Henry Rolfs, who was married to Sophia, and they had 2 children: Henry and Benjamin. They probably lived in the Elkhorn, Douglas County, Nebraska, area. Claus Henry Rolfs was usually called Henry Rolfs.

While surf the NET, I found a listing that showed that Henry Rolfs married Sophia Kaelber on November 21, 1880, at Douglas County, Nebraska.

Henry and Benjamin were born in 1885 and 1888, so there is a strong possibility that Sophia Kaelber did marry my Henry Rolfs. If you have any information about this branch of the Kaelber family, please contact me.

There is also a Sophia Kaelber in my tree. She would have been me x3 Great grandfathers sister. My granfathers German born name was Karl Ludwig Kaelber. When he came to the states it changed to Louis Karl Kalber. He had 4 known sisters, Sophia - Born in Germany, Hannah - Born in Germany and Phebe - Born in Indiana.

Hannah and Phebe came over with their parents Johann Gottfried Kaelber and Eva (eve) and retained the last name spelling.

Not sure if this helps at all....I am also in need to tracing the German roots if anyone has any information!
