Thanks for responding. I had that record too. It was a great find and I agree, it is most likely they transcribed Koob incorrectly. I was actually directing my question to Bill. I wanted to know how he was related to my great grandfather. Researching anything prior to his coming to the United States in Abt. 1884 is difficult. I'm so appreciative of all the people that scan these documents and the translations that are made.
