I am researching my ancestor Claus Heinrich STAENDER (STENDER, STAINER), 18 Oct 1821, Schleswig-Holstein, - 21 apr 1893, Remsen IA), present in Platteville township Grant Co, WI in the 1870 federal Census. His daughter, Charlotte, married Wilhelm KAHL (21 Dec 1840, Holstein - 6 Feb 1905, Remsen IA) that year; they are listed in the 1880 federal census, also of Platteville. The 1870 census lists Claus Heinrich as Henry STAINER, 50, with wife Henriette, 50, and children Dorothy, 13, Rudolf, 10, and Otto, 7, all born Holstein. Claus Heinrich's 1893 death record states that son Otto, 27, remained in Platteville. None of the records I have access to (mostly census records) state the year of emigration of either the STENDER family or of Wilhelm KAHL (he had two brothers, August, born about 1843, and Heinrich/Henry, born about 1836). The volumes of Germans to America do not appear to help either. I live in Texas and thus do not have access to any records specific to Grant Co. I would appreciate any information concerning surviving relations or points of origin or residence of my STENDER or KAHL relations.

Bob Nobis Tue, 15 Oct 1996
My grandfather, Max Ludwig NOBIS lived in Wisconsin for a period of time from sometime after 1869 until after 1900, possibly as late as 1905. .. As best I can determine here are the approximate dates he was at various locations in Wisconsin: 1869 to 1876 Unknown location in Wisconsin
1876 to 1882 Boscobel, Grant County, Wisconsin
1882 to 1890 Richland Center, Richland County, Wisconsin
1890 to 1898 Lisbon, North Dakota
1900 to ??? Mayville, Dodge County, Wisconsin (from 1900 census record) Here is some other information I have on Max Ludwig NOBIS: Born: December 18, 1853 in ???, Saxony, Germany (city unknown) Died: June 12, 1940, Valley City, Barnes County, North Dakota Immigrated to US: March 18, 1869 at age 15 to stay with his older brother in Wisconsin. From Hamburg and Havre to New York via the ship Germania, arriving on 3/18/1869. U.S. Citizenship: Sep 17,1880 in Lancaster,Grant County, WI Occupation: Musician (orchestra leader, teacher of violin and baritone horn)He was an accomplished violinist. Also he was a professional barber. Wife's name: Elizabeth (Louisa) WEDEHASE m: Oct. 9,1876, Boscobel, WI Children: Clara A. NOBIS b: Abt. 1878, Boscobel, Grant Co., WI William M. NOBIS b: October 31, 1879, Boscobel, Grant Co., WI Fannie NOBIS b: Abt March 1882, Boscobel, Grant Co., WI Max F. NOBIS b: May 31, 1884,Richland Center,Richland Co.,WI George R. NOBIS b: July 31, 1886,Richland Center,Richland Co.,WI Wallace L. NOBIS b: May 03, 1890, Richland Center, Richland Co., WI Hazel NOBIS b: Abt July 1891(?), in Lisbon, ND (?) Ralph A. NOBIS b: Abt July 1896, Lisbon, ND In particular, I am interested in any records which might indicate where in Germany, Max Ludwig NOBIS was born. Perhaps there is also some record of the older brother that Max immigrated to live with. This may have been at a different location in Wisconsin, sometime between when he immigrated on March 18, 1869 and Oct. 9, 1876, his marriage date. Any other people with the surname NOBIS, located in the general vicinity of Richland, Grant or Dodge Counties would quite likely be his brother or another relative, as NOBIS is a fairly rare name, about 200 people in the U.S.A today. Can you also offer suggestions on where I might look for more specific information on Max Ludwig NOBIS, his wife Elizabeth (WEDEHASE) NOBIS or his first six children while they lived in Wisconsin? For example, are there microfilm copies of the local newspapers that are available for searching? Have there been any County family histories published that might mention Max L. NOBIS or his music? Are any of these records available for interlibrary loan, or will I actually have to Wisconsin city where they are located? Thank you. Sincerely, Robert J. NOBIS, Jr. 1766 East Evergreen Street Mesa, AZ 85203-5802 email: [email protected]
