Looking for information about my ancestor, Franz Julius Zebell. He arrived in New York on Oct. 6, 1871. He was born in Kassel, Germany. He was traveling with Wilhelm age 60, Frdke age 51, Wilhelm age 10 and Bertha Ziebell age 4. He went directly to Chicago via train but was unable to arrive in Chicago due to the Great Chicago Fire. His whereabout are unknown from 1871 - 1881. In 1881 he is married to Mary Agnes Newman, has one son, William, and is living in Ransom, IL (LaSalle Co.) raising draft horses. He goes on to become a successful farmer and lives in Odell, IL (Livingston Co.) He has at least three sons, William, Frank and Allen. Possibliy two others, Omar and James. He was said to be meeting or traveling with a brother. We believe this family member settled in Wis. or Mich. Can you help us to find the missing relative? Any Zebell/Ziebell family are encouraged to contact me!! Thanks
