Kosbab: Edward Henry (USA)

I am cousin to Marcia Hupp and Granddaughter to Edward Henry. Kosbab.

His father was Henry Kosbab.

It is on his headstone in the Oakland Cemetery in Sandusky, Ohio.

My grandmother, Bertha was 3 I believe when they came to the USA. I was young when I asked her where she came from and she didn’t tell me, just that the village probably wasn’t there anymore.

It was small and WW11 was being fought. Paul was 7 months old when they arrived in America on the ship Holland, they arrived 26 may-1882.,Paul died at age 29 from TB.

The other sons were born in Ohio, and they were Frank, Albert and William one sister Ida. It does not list maiden name of Mother on either Edwards or Augusta’s death certificates only Father (Henry) on Edwards and (John Gewanzki) on Augustas.

My Grandmother Bertha gave both infos. I remember grandmother Augusta, she was a small woman and only spoke German. She lived with Gram and when I stayed with gram grandmother would walk me to the park to play.

I have many pictures, even of her in her casket, in Grams living room.
