Birth of SonJune 7, 1862His son Alois was born June 7, 1862 in Rieneck, Unterfranken, Bavaria, Germany.3 
MarriageFebruary 12, 1863He married Maria Anna Dittrich, daughter of Andreas Dittrich and Anna Maria Gossman, February 12, 1863 in Rieneck, Unterfranken, Bavaria, Germany.1  
Death of MotherFebruary 19, 1863His mother, Elisabeth, died on February 19, 1863.2

Birth of SonMay 26, 1872His son Jakob was born May 26, 1872 in Rieneck, Unterfranken, Bavaria, Germany.6 
Birth of SonMarch, 1875His son Joseph was born March, 1875 in Bavaria, Germany.7 
Birth of SonJuly 18, 1877His son John was born July 18, 1877 in Perham, Otter Tail County, Minnesota.8 
Birth of DaughterJuly 12, 1879His daughter Mary was born July 12, 1879 in Minnesota.9 
Birth of DaughterFebruary 12, 1883His daughter Anna was born February 12, 1883 in Perham, Otter Tail County, Minnesota.8 
(widow) DeathFebruary 14, 1883John was widowed when his wife, Mary died on February 14, 1883.10 
MarriageJanuary 28, 1884He married Ottilia Knehr, daughter of (given name not known) Knehr, January 28, 1884 in Frazee, Otter Tail (possibly should be Becker) County, Minnesota. John George Kueber apparently travelled back to Germany in 1883 to find a new wife and returned with Ottilia Knehr. There have been two versions told of how John George Kueber found Ottilia to be his new wife. One version of the story passed down is because Minnesota was short of young women, John George sent back to Germany for a bride using the picture of his eldest son, Aloysius (A. Luis), as incentive. When the bride arrived, A Luis, who was then 21, was sent packing. Whether there was a choice or not is not known but the young woman, Ottila Knehr(Kuehr), did then marry John George. A. Luis did not speak of or to his father thereafter. There are no written facts to document this story but the story was related on more than one occasion and by more than one person. The other version of the story is said to be Ottilia's account of her courtship by John George Kueber. She said that after he lost his wife he returned to Germany in search of a bride. They met in Germany and she returned to America with him (not yet married). She then stayed with relatives in New York while John George went to his home in Minnesota to "break the news" to his family of having a new step-mother. Months later she arrived in Perham where they were married. The only documentation found so far is the passenger list of the ship on which Ottilia apparently arrived in New York. The S.S. Elbe from Bremen arrived in New York on December 17, 1883. Passenger #322 listed is Ottilie Kuber, female, age 22, no occupation, a citizen of Germany, and traveling in Steerage B. Passenger #334 listed is George Kuper, age 48, a farmer, a citizen of the United States, and traveling in Steerage C. Although this is not ideal documentation, it appears likely that these two passengers are Ottilia and John George. The ages are about right: Ottilia was actually 21 at that time and John George was actually 49. Why Ottilia would be listed with the surname of Kuber is puzzling. According to the marriage certificate the marriage took place in Frazee, Otter Tail County. However Frazee is in Becker County. Perhaps the church was near Frazee but in OtterTail County. Roman Catholic.11,12

Birth of DaughterJune 15, 1888His daughter Anna was born June 15, 1888 in Perham, Otter Tail County, Minnesota.14
