I am researching Peter Hoecker - Maria (Mary) Laubenthal as they are my husband's family. Mary Laubenthal's parents were Jacob Laubenthal and Anna Maria Weaver (also written as Weber on some records) from Monroe County, Illinois. Jacob was a farmer and died between 1870 & 1877. Anna died 7 October 1879. I too found the record of the marriage of Peter and Mary 23 Jan 1873. Any information that might solve the mystery of Catherine Darsam would be appreciated.
