I'm a relative to Barb. She and I are in constant writing contact. I'm a German and living in Germany. I do family research and I'm definitely interested in the Nibler clan and its dependants. Franz Xaver Nibler emigrated from Germany about 1900, married Cathy Fisher, and produced with her eight children who themselves married and produced many more children, one of them was Jacob Schmidtbauer. Best greetings, Fritz from Germany
