Surnames: Lubahn
I'm looking for my relatives that immigranted from Germany. Some may have moved to Michigan or Wisconsin. Their names are Wilhelmine (born appx 1855) Friedrich (b. approx 1856) Auguste (b appx 1858) Wilhelm (1861) and Marie (1865). Their sibling August, b 1857 is my great great grandfather. When then immigrated they went together on the steamship Ernst Moritz Arndt in 19 June 1874 Departing from Stettin. I'm assuming from the manifest records they are all siblings. If any of you know any Lubahns in your area that know their family tree I would appreciate any information. Also, anyone who is able to track down these people though resources i would appreciate.

Asking others about Lubahns anywhere in Michigan or Wisconsin is not a very efficient way to obtain genealogy information. Have you tried finding them in the appropriate censuses (e.g., 1880, 1900, etc.)? That would tell you where they lived, for a starter. Try the FamilySearch beta site for free census indexes and images:
Some vital records indexes for Wisconsin and Michigan can be found here:
Also check online trees (e.g., WorldConnect and others).

thanks, there were a couple of links there i haven't tried. Unfortunately I have searched the censuses and have hit a dead end. This was kind of my last resort.

I'm not sure what sort of census searching you did or where, but there's a Wilhelmina Lubahn, age 25, in Milwaukee in 1880, and William and Mary Luban, ages 18 and 15, in Ozaukee County, Wisconsin in 1880. You should be able to find them here:

If you obtained their ages from a passenger list, be sure to take them with a grain of salt.

for the Wisconsin search
Ozaukee Co.
I think you'll find Wilhelm/William
also a possible for Marie may have married Bernhard Haeselbarth in 1884. Marie died in 1891.
When you do the search in Ozaukee Co. You will find the full story on Justine. maiden name Karch. 1st husband Christian Lubahn, 2nd Carl Filter. (Carl Filter d. 1882), (Justine d. 1899)

On that 1874 immigration. The children came over with mother Justine/Gustine and step father Carl/Charles Filter. That is who William and Maria are with in 1880. plus 2 Filter children b. 1870 and 72 in Germany.

Family search will give you Auguste's marriage to Gustav Baer.
Wilhelmine poss marriage to Johan Schulz/Schultz

Old newspapers on ancestry- Sheboygan obit for Frederick died 1930 in Jackson, Michigan. Lived in Sheboygan area 1889-1903. When his wife died in 1942, obit said she married Frederick in Ann Arbor, Mich. 1884, 6 grand children all Jackson, Mi.

When William's wife, Bertha (Mueller) died in 1957, obit lists surviving childrens names and 27 grand and 43 Grgrand children!!

Good luck in your search

There are 3 Lubahn entries listed in the current data for "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950).
One is a close match for your research:
1924 - Lubahn, Emilie (née Will) -- death notices
1926 - Lubahn, Gotfried -- death notices
1934 - Lubahn, William; 72 yr -- death notices
