I think I have a distant connection to anyone researching Joseph Nubel. My great-great-grandfather was John Nubel and I have reason to believe that he had a brother Joseph who lived near him in Brooklyn. From the research I have done so far Joseph was born in 1832 in Prussia. He was married to Catherine and they had John, Joseph, Annie, William and Henry. I have found their son Joseph as married to Francis and they had children Joseph, John, Francis and Caroline. If anyone would like to compare notes please email me.
