My third great grandfather was John Ferber. He came to Augusta, Georgia with his first wife Maria, she died after three months and my third great grandmother came over from Strasburg, France and married him. His nephew Kasper Ferber followed him over a few years before John died. We have a picture of the Ferber family farm in Bavaria, with a name of Otto on the back of it and others that can not be read. We know that the farm was near where the Passion play in Bavaria is performed every ten years. I do know from the first wife's tombstone that the name was spelled Färber. Perhaps we are the same Ferbers.
