I take it you have not seen the Nobles County history that was
published by Rose in 1908. There is a family biograph of Jacob
Remackel on page 618. This was recently added to our database by
Shirley Karle. If you have not seen it I can scan it and pass it
along. In part it says:
"Jacob Remackel, retired farmer of Wilmont, is a native of Luxemburg,
where he was born Oct. 28, 1857. His parents were Nick and Anna (Shu)
Remackel, both of whom died in Lexemburg, the former in 1888, aged 65
years, the latter in 1890 aged 65 years."
"He arrived in the new world March 7, 1880, and located in Dubuque
"He was married at Lyons, Clinton county, Jan. 8, 1884, to Annie
Halfmann, who was born in Prussia Sept. 5, 1861, and who came to
America and to Illinois on August 1, 1881. They are the parents of
one child, Walter Francis, born in Wall Lake, Iowa, July 5, 1892."
Does this should answer sone questions?
