He was Margaret Pearl’s step-father, as far as I have been able to find he did not adopt her, even though she is listed with his surname in the 1920 U.S. Census.

 

The number of Ketzeback descendants is huge, with the variants in spelling have made following some of them challenging. The collateral lines are actively being researched, and any information about any of the Ketzeback lines would be welcome.

Caroline Ernst was born Monday, 24 December 1860 or Saturday, 24 December 1859 in Springfield, Sangamon, Illinois and died Thursday, 23 May 1929 in Fairbank, Buchanan, Iowa at 68 years, 4 months, 29 days of age (as stated in her obituary) and was buried Fairbank Cemetery, Fairbank, Buchanan, Iowa (Find A Grave Memorial No. 52046255). On Monday, 07 February 1881 in Klinger, Bremer, Iowa she married Charles F. Leibert who was born Friday, 14 February 1834 in Berlin, , Preussen, Germany and died Friday, 02 April 1915 in Klinger, Bremer, Iowa at 81 years, 1 month, 19 days of age and was buried in Gresham Cemetery, Bennington, Black Hawk, Iowa (Find A Grave Memorial No. 24315783). Caroline and Charles F. did not have issue, however he did have children from his first marriage, they lived for a while in Wisconsin then moved back to Iowa. Caroline had a child in 1879, there is no record of marriage and the following year she was working as a servant for the George L. White family in her home town of Barclay, Black Hawk, Iowa. The 1880 U.S. Census notes that there is a 1 year old granddaughter living with Caroline’s parents, Lewis and Christina Ernst. The name is given as Maggie Ernst. (Caroline’s daughter was named Ada J. Cormst. There is no one by the name of Cormst in Barclay that I have been able to find and I suspect it is a misreading of Ernst in the handwritten documents, I have seen no images of them so it is speculation but something I have found to happen though. A case in point being the 1900 U. S. Census where Ada is transcribed as Ida, but when the digital image is examined it is very obvious that the first letter of her name is “A” not “I”.). There may or may not have been a marriage, but up until marriage to Charles F. Leibert there is no evidence of one. The granddaughter, Maggie, is not a child traceable to any of the other Ernst children. I suspect, with no solid proof, that Maggie is Ada J., that Caroline had an illegitimate child and her parents were caring for her while her mother worked to help provide for her. After the death of Charles F. Leibert, Caroline lived with her daughter and son-in-law until her death.
