Seeking information on Johann Bernhard Krussel (Kruessel) and his wife, Elizabeth Raben. In 1870 census they are recorded as Barney and Lizzie. He was born in 1833 in Hannover, she about 1840 in Hannover. According to census records they immigrated in 1865 and married in 1865, presumably in Cincinnati but I can't find a record of it. Their first born, Mary, was born about 1866 in Ohio but their remaining children were born in Leopold. Barney died in Leopold in 1908 but there is no record of Elizabeth's death.
