Brick wall on birth record/parents

+3 votes

I've got another one I've gotten stuck on.  I've found a handful of sources, but none that give me an indication of who her parents might have been.  The best "lead" is the religious record that lists Nicholosi Glab and Anna Glab as being witnesses.  Unfortunately, the Nick and Anna that I've found in Dubuque are too young to have been witnesses to the marriage - and even then, I haven't been able to figure out the connection anyway.

There is a large Glab family in Dubuque, but none list a Katherine as a sister or aunt or anything.  There is a Katherine, but she doesn't fit the Katherine here, married to someone different.

There are a few Cath Glaab or something similar in immigration records, but there isn't enough to know if it's this Katherine or not.  At least, not that I see.

I've searched FamilySearch and Ancestry, but haven't found anything that seems to work.  The birthdate is from her gravestone, so that's why it lists an "about".  There are a few Katie/Katherine/etc. Glab's in Hesse-Darmstadt, but either they're found with a Germany death record or are too far off in years.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!  That said, I got great help with her husband George, so...understand if I'm being too greedy here asking again!

So I found that and it was linked in a prior version of Katie's biography.  Unless there's something there, I just don't know if I can "confirm" that as being her

Thanks for your guidance, though!  Those early immigration records seem so inept!
