Notes

Jacob Mayer, Michael Hieb, Jacob Hieb (single at the time), Michael Hieb Sr., The Johann Voegele Family, Friedrich Vilhaur family the Baurs and the Christ Hieb Family debarked the train together in 1884 in SD. (Most were related to each other)

Michael Hieb and family came to USA in 1874 and lived in Bon Homm Co., SD before moving to Hosmer area.

Jacob Mayer had to have come over in 1884 since he had a child in Russia in 1884.

Jacob Mayer b:1858 probably in Russia d:1937 in Hosmer, SD his 1st wife: Katherina HIEB b:1860 probably in South Russia d:1892 in Hosmer, SD and his 2nd wife and Katherina's sister Carolina HIEB b:1871 probably in South Russia d:1937 in Hosmer, SD

The best candiates I have for Jacobs parents are:

Maier, Daniel Graff, Katharina Jakob 24 Jul 1857 Cassel 1884103-2-672-061

This is possible if Jacob's birth year was estimated from his age at time of death.

I have not located any possibles Katherina and Carolina but I suspect the are close relatives to Michael A Hieb. b:16 Sep 1855 or Christ Hieb mentioned above.

Re: Jacob MAYER Katherina and Carolina HIEB tom_durst (View posts) Posted: 17 Aug 2002 4:54PM GMT Classification: Query Edited: 12 Nov 2009 9:07PM GMT Surnames: Hieb, Maier, Mayer, Kaiser Hi Cousin:

I believe that Jacob's parents are Eva Kaiser and Johannes Maier from Neudorf, South Russia. I used Karl Stumpp's Book and records on the Odessa Library site to research this family.

Jacob (Maier) Mayer is my gGrandfather on my mother's side.

Did you notice that Karl Stumpp used the surname Maier for all the Mayers, Maiers, Meyers, Meiers, etc. present in the village of Neudorf?

I haven't tried to find Eva Kaiser's parents yet.

Jacob Mayer, wife Katharina (Hieb), daughters Eva and Katharina arrived in N. Y. on the ship Donau. They homesteaded in Blaine Twp., McPherson Co., S. Dak.

His wife Katharina (Hieb) Mayer died 1891-1892, and Jacob sent for and married her sister Carolina Hieb. Carolina and 6 month old son John (Dockter?) Hieb arrived in N. Y. Aug. 1892 on the ship ??? (I have it down to 3 possible ships, but I haven't followed up yet.)

I've attached a photo of Jacob and Katharina (Hieb) Mayer. My Grandmother Magdalena (Mayer) Hieb had written 'Poppa and Momma' on the back.
