Hello All. I have been looking for some connection to a Wilhelmina Jobusch Brandt. At least that is what I think her name was. I am looking at my Great Grandfathers death certificate and all I can make out is Jobusch. I did find a marriage certificate for her in Monroe county. There are three citizens of Mercer County; Rose b - June 23, 1888 d - February 1976.
Nell b - March 29,1889 d - October 1977 "I" b - December 12, 1886 d - January 1982 Aledo Mercer County IL 61231
I know there was a Louis⁄Lewis Jobusch that purchased some land 1849 I think in Mercer County. Does anyone know anything about these people? Death notices, obituaries, ANYTHING would be worth a look. This surname has been my biggest headache.
