Koob Busch born 1858 in Simonswolde and came to America in 1884.  Looking for information about him prior to arriving US.

I assume the Koob Busch is the same as the one buried in Iowa (Koob J. Busch)? that died in 1934?

Any further info (like his parents, etc) will help in the search.

Bill, how are you related to Koob Busch (1858-1934)?   Bob

According to his Iowa death certificate he was born 5 March 1858, and his father's name was John.

There is a birth record for a Coob Buß (mistranscribed as Joeb Büss), born 5 March 1858 to a Jaan Buß and his wife Trientje Buß in the hamlet of Hüllenerfehn in the parish of Weene (see https://www.ancestry.com/sharing/21312298?h=e81138&utm_campaign=bandido-webparts&utm_source=post-share-modal&utm_medium=copy-url). This hamlet is just north of Simonswolde, in the East Frisia region of northwestern Germany. Thus, this birth record almost certainly is for the Koob Busch who died in Iowa in 1934.

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.
