Well here we are again trying to tie families together to get answers.  We will never really know the everyday life of our ancestors, but then again it's kind of fun figuring out what went on.  Who were their neighbors, what did their house look like, or what church they went to.  Did they go to church? 

I'm not real clear about Probus Eberle except that he migrated from Kappelwindeck, Baden, Baden, Germany.  He married Indian Kate Jordan (again another story) and died 1890 in E. Dubuque, Illinois.  I will have to delve into his life a little more and report back.

Probus was born 10 Nov 1821 and died 18 Oct 1890.  He married Kate, as she was more affectionaly known, about 1858 in E. Dubuque, Illinois.
