Surnames: Boberg
My Boberg's came over from Osnabruck, Germany in 1840-1850. They were Johan Wilhiem b. 1816 and Johan Henrich Boberg b. 1831 in Germany. They settled in Cincinnatti for a few years and then crossed the river to Covington, Ky. The Boberg name isn't very common so I'm not sure exactly why your Boberg was from England, did they speak german at all?

I have a grandfather named J. Henry Boberg, b. 5-22-1875 in Jennings Twp, Putnam Co., OH. He was married to Cora Bell McOwen (her father John L. McOwen annulled the marriage before their son was born), she was born abt. 1876 in OH?
J. Henry Boberg's parents were: Charles Mathias Boberg and Pauline ??? from England. Their children were as follows:
J. Henry 5-22-1875, William 8-17-1877, Elizabeth 9-1878, and Frank 11-1890 (all born in Ohio). I hope this information will help someone and in return help me complete my search for my family lines. Good luck and hope to hear from you soon.

The bobergs of New Zealand originate (I believe) from Sweden (I have yet to crack that connection) and are descendants of Bert Boberg who arived in NZ around the turn of the century. He had two children Axel 1921 - 1998 (my father) and Bernice 192? - 198?. Axel married Gabriel Flint about 1942 and they had five children. Wayne 1948, Mark 1951, Ingrid 1953, Chris 1955 and Paul 1958. All are living in Auckland New Zealand. Bernice married Owen Rowntree about 1941/2 and they farm (Ayrshire breeders)in the Waikato. Bernice and Owen had two children Alan 1947 (I think) and Linda 1951 (I think). More to come.........

Bobergs from Osnabrueck

Cathy-
Not sure if we have corresponded previously or not, but just in case...

My Boberg ancestor, Kaspar August Ludwig BOBERG, was born December 9, 1843, in Osnabrueck (actually, Sutthausen, a suburb), and came to the US in August 1866, eventually settling in Pittsburgh, Pa, before 1872. (He never made it to Kenton County, Kentucky, as far as I know...)

His father was reportedly Gosmiel BOBERG and his mom Maria Elizabeth SEEGER, though I've never found them. (The names come from the church records where Kaspar's children were born in Pittsburgh.)

HOWEVER, looking at the first three male children, I am wondering if we don't have some sort of connection. His sons were;

Kaspar Henry BOBERG (named after himself, I suspect)
John Henry BOBERG
John William BOBERG
(there were others, but this is the most relevant!)

Is it just a coincedance that you have a Johan Heinrich (John Henry) and a Johan Wilhelm (John William), or is this part of the traditional German naming hierarchy.

Comments?

P.S. Thanks to Wayne Boberg for pointing out this query to me!

more Boberg "coincidences"

Cathy-
Before when I first saw this thread on Kenton County, I thought there was an outside chance of a connection. Now, after a few more months, it seems even more likely.

I've gotten a few more "gems":
1) my Goswin (not Gosmiel, as I thought) BOBERG married Maria Elizabeth SEEGER in 1831 in St. Johann's in Osnabrueck. Your Joh. Henry was born in 1831 in Osnabrueck. (I descend from Caspar August Boberg, born 1843 to Goswin and Maria, then in Sutthausen, a suburb of Osnabrueck.)

2) The witnesses to Goswin and Maria's wedding were Friedrich Boberg and Anna Elizabeth Seeger. A Friedrich shows up in the Pittsburgh area (where Caspar eventually comes) in 1852 and 1856. This Friedrich has only one son, a William/Wilhelm. My Caspar also has only one son who survives - a William/Wilhelm.

Your ancestor? A Joh. Wilhelm.

Friedrich reportedly comes to the US in 1854, but I wonder if he comes BACK to the US in 1854, since he also shows up in the Pittsburgh registers in 1852 and 1856, but not in between. (My Caspar comes in 1866, but is not in the 1870 census, in spite of being married in Pittsburgh in 1869. Were they visiting relatives in 1870?)

Do you have the 1850-1860-or 1870 census entries for Bobergs in Kenton County? Any unconnected folks in their household when the census was taken?

Anything else I say here ring any bells?

I am just getting started into the Boberg family history...I did find it interesting your name is Wayne. My brother-in-laws name is Wayne Boberg...his fathers middle name is Wayne.
I believe these Boberg's came from Germany, but can't seem to go any further than Indiana as of yet.
