My father-in-law's name is Edward Amrhein, born in Depew NY in 1927.
Edward's father was Frank Amrhein, born in Johnstown, PA.
Mother's name Carrie Eggler who was born in Germany and came to U.S. when she was two.

Frank Amrhein's parents were Anna Kuebler and Arthur Amrhein. They were married in January 1881.
Anna's parent's were Otilla (Kalley) & Ludwig Kuebler
Arthur's parents were Louise (Yocum) & Henry Amrhein from Bethlehem,PA.

My father-in-law does not know if they were in another state before this.

Arthur Amrhein came to Johnstown PA in 1880. Made their home in Cambria Borough before moving to Morrellville about the time of the Flood of 1889.
Don't know where those last two mentioned places are; but must be near Johnstown PA because my Father-in-Law said Arthur remembered the flood.

Arthur and Anna's other children were; John, Edward, Otilla, Esther, Ludwig, Anna who married John Courtney), and George.

Cindy, Anna (Kuebler) Amrhein had three brothers; Joseph, Ignatius, and George. Ignatius moved from Johnstown to Lorain OH to Buffalo NY and over the course of this had ten children. The bulk of his decendents are in the Buffalo-Western NY area today. George also moved to Lorain and had eight children. One of his daughters is still alive and I'm told that she remembers visiting family at Morrellville. E-mail me, I have lots of info and contacts for you cuz! Jim Kuebler

Cindy, I am your cousin. I don't know how many times removed but George was my grandfather. I knew almost all the people mentioned here. They lived in a neighborhood in Johnstown called Morrellville, on Virginia Avenue. Ed and 'Luddy' were my great uncles. They were lifelong bachelors and both passed away between 1965 and 1972, approximately. I can remember Aunt Annie and Aunt Tilly from my childhood. The Courtneys, Aunt Annie's family, lived in Geistown, a suburb of Johnstown. I knew them well. Great people. I think my dad still keeps in touch with them. The Depew branch is also familiar to me, but I last visited them around 1997. I think there was a family there named Jacimak, IIRC, that was one of the Amrhein daughters' branch.

Also, here in Pittsburgh where I live, I was lifelong friends with Chuck and Aileen Keebler. It wasn't until I was in my twenties that I found out they were also cousins, descended from the Kueblers but with the spelling Americanized. You can find Chuck on Facebook. There are quite a few Amrhein's here in Pittsburgh and I think most of us are distantly related. There's an Andy who runs a hardware store and is sometimes heard on KDKA radio on weekends. My dad ran into him and they discovered they were cousins but I don't know what degree of cousinness. My grandfather, my dad, my brother, and I were or still are machinists. We own a machine shop in West Homestead, Pa. called Downing Machine. My dad's cousin Art Courtney was also a machinist.

My grandparents moved from Johnstown to Pittsburgh in the mid-1930's to 'find work' as they called it back then. I live in the house they built in 1942. I was born in 1956 and all through my childhood we would take trips to Johnstown on a regular basis to visit the family. That's how I know all this stuff.

My dad filled me in today. Frank Amrhein was his uncle. He was a big cheese at Bethlehem Steel in Tonawanda, in charge of the entire plant at one time. He was so important to the operation that when he took sick and was dying the company built living quarters on the plant premises in order for him to be able to continue working. I guess he passed away before I was born, but he was my great uncle nevertheless. If anybody reads this stuff please get in touch with me if you have any questions. My dad will be 86 in a couple days and his memory is starting to slip, and he may be the last one who can fill in some of the details of the family's past.

Dean,

Ignatius was my g-grandfather and Francis was my grandfather. My dad is Bob Kuebler and he and your dad were close friends when they were younger.. My dad is 84 now. I'm working on a family history starting with Ludwig & Ottilia. I was able to connect with George's descendants and knew about Anna's, but wasn't able to find much about Joseph's since he dies so young (1917 in Homestead PA). Glad to see you may have found them.

Email me and I can share what I have so far.
