I am searching for the surname Kosbab. Edward Kosbab was born in 1857 in Hinter Pommern, Germany. His wife, Augusta Gewanzki, Genofske, Genowski (not certain of spelling) was also born around 1857 in Hinter Pommern. Edward had 2 brothers and 1 sister (possibly more). Edward and Augusta were married about 1875 in Hinter Pommern. Edward came to Sandusky, Ohio, U.S.A in 1878 and Augusta came in 1881. Edward’s brothers, August and Albert Kosbab stayed in Hinter Pommern. Edward’s sister, Henrietta Kosbab, married Wilhelm Nutzki, and also settled in Sandusky, Ohio, U.S.A. Would like to learn what town in Hinter Pommern the Kosbab family came from. It is possible they came from the area, formerly known as Stolp, Germany, but I have found no evidence of the exact name of the town. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Name: John Hendrikson

My great grandmother Emile Stein was married to a Carl Stein and they were the parents of my grandmother Alvina Stein.  Emile later married a Carl Kosbab and had several children with Carl.  This was also Carl\’s second marriage.  Do you have any information on these people.  I believe they lived in Fairmont Minnesota which was also the location of my Hendrikson great grandfather. I have traced Emile to her origins in Sweden.

Comments: I was doing a homework assignment for grad school
tonight, and was working on biographical works on
the web. Through some strange meanderings I located
this website, because my great-grandparents were
William and Anna Kosbab. They come from Prussia
to the State of Wisconsin around 1900. If I ever
have time to figure out some of my ancestry, I can
hopefully add to the tree. It certainly appears
to be a lot of hard work and hours of searching.

Comments: Yes Brian I got a bit muddled, but I did mean Henrietta Louise and not Louise Auguste – it’s hardly surprising with such repitition of names. By the way you can add the surname of SWAIN to Queenie’s Reg.You’e done a super job on both the Kosbab and Odger’s trees – again, congratulations!!

Comments: IN MEMORY OF WENDYWe only met once, just before the birth of her second child, Nichol. Before we left England for Australia in 1981, Wendy wrote me, and for the next couple of years we corresponded. Without her kindly help in all things Australian, we would have had a more difficult time in finding our way around.I only wish that I had kept up writing.

Wendy, your going has saddened us all, but we shall not forget you.

Your Cousin, Carol
