Date: Mon Mar 25 2002
Name: Skip Murray
Notes: As far as I know, the $100 would have been sent by one of 3 sons of Chritopher Eberlein - George, Ferdinand, or Edward. These 3 sons all fought in the Civil war. Edward returned to Blue Earth, Faribault Co., MN. Ferdinand died by Vicksburg, and George also died in the war. Christopher Eberlein and Katherine (Frebel) Eberlein were the parents of the 3 sons. They were from Herrenbreitungen, Hesse-Kassel, Germany. In 1863, Christopher & Katherine moved to Blue Earth, Faribault Co., MN (from Portage, Columbia Co., WI), when they inherited the farm of their son, Ferdinand Eberlein - after Ferd. died in the war. Ferdinand and Edward fought for Minnesota. George fought for Wisconsin.

Ferdinand Eberlein 18 Feb. 1863 | George Eberlein 27 March 1863 | Eberlein 18 May 1863 | George Eberlain 18 June 1863 | 9 Aug. 1863 re death of Ferdinand Eberlain
