I am researching my wife's SCHREIBER line, and I'm trying to find the father of John Frederick SCHREIBER. John was born in Baden, Germany in 1832 and moved to Stephenson County, IL with his parents and family in 1847. I found a Jacob SCHRIBER and family in Ridott, Stephenson County, IL in the 1850 and 1860 censuses. The 1850 census lists a son Frederic, age 18. I think this Frederic is John Frederick SCHREIBER, but I haven't been able to prove it. The age fits. I haven't been able to trace the Jacob SCHRIBER family after 1860. John Frederick SCHREIBER was a minister of the Evangelical Association from Illinois, and moved to Kansas as a minister of the Kansas Conference. John's obituary in Kansas in 1896 mentioned that he was survived by several brothers and sisters, but it didn't mention names. The children of Jacob SCHRIBER were: Jacob, Frederic, Catherine, Mary, Elizabeth, Christina, Edward, Simon, and Lizzy. The children of John F. SCHREIBER were: Sarah, Gideon Lincoln, Emma, Charley, Rosetta, Perseda, and Edwin. I would appreciate any help, and I'm glad to exchange information. Dennis Stephens

Fred and Luella moved to Washington, D.C. between 1905 and 1917. Had three children: Margaret Luella, Charlotte (middle name?), and James (middle name ?).
