I'm not sure when they came to the states from Germany and I'm not sure if this is the correct spelling. Joseph Reibel m. Mary Mcdermitt, they had several children Joseph, Mary, Annie, John. Annie is my gggrandmother, m. Frank McElroy in 1884. She was born 1859 and he in 1858. They had 6 girls in Colorado. I have info on both of their parents. Reibel is originally from France. I'm not sure if it's a french or german name. I would love to know more info on the Reibels- they apparently were very wealthy in Louisville Ky. And owned race horses. Mary died and Joseph rem. a women w/2 daughters of her own. If this is familiar to anyone, I would love to talk to you!!
