I am continuing to search for an ancestor who reports being born in
Stuttgart in 1842 and was in Texas by 1858.
The names I would be looking for are STEMBOK, SHTEMBAK,,
or other variations on STEINBACH which is how the name came down to me.
I am looking for Bella Levin Stembok married to Yankel Stembok with a child
called Kate, Ktrinka, Catherine or variation. She is the middle of nine
children. Also it is possible that the mother, Bella, died of cholera in
the Stuttgart area.
I wonder if any of you have access to a 1964 reference work called
"Weg und Schicksal der Stuttgarter Juden : ein Gedenkbuch"
which could help me in my search. Thanks so much.
