Hannah Stuebe was born in Germany in January 1838.
(1) She immigrated to the United States in 1856.(2) Her parents were Philip Stuebe and Mary Koch.(3) Philip Stuebe was born January 1, 1816, in Pomerania, Germany.(4) Mary Koch was born December 25, 1812, in Pomerania, Germany.(5) Philip Stube and Mary Koch apparently were married in Germany. Philip Stuebe died October 19, 1889, in Danville, Illinois.(6) Mary Koch died August 10, 1888, in Danville, Illinois.(7) Philip and Mary Stuebe were the parents of John, Frederick Christian who apparently also was called Christopher, Fredericka, Frederick, Mary, and Hannah.(8) Hannah was the oldest of the six children of Philip and Mary Stube.

1) John Stuebe was born in Germany on May 15, 1841.(9) He died in Danville, Illinois, on September 28, 1934.(10) He married Caroline Kraft on December 18, 1880, in Vermilion County, Illinois.(11) She was born in 1861 and died in Danville, Illinois, in 1906. John Stuebe served in the 37th Regiment, Illinois Infantry, Company K, as a Private during the Civil War.(12) John and Caroline (Kraft) Stuebe had a son named Leonard who was born in 1881 and died in 1934.

According to the 1900 Illinois census, John Stube was a naturalized citizen, had lived in the United States for 42 years, and had immigrated to the United States in 1857. An Intention was filed by John Stube on the 2nd day of November 1868 whereby he declared on oath to E. A. McKee, Clerk of the Circuit Court in Vermilion County, State of Illinois, the he renounced forever all allegiance to Frederick William King of Prussia where he was heretofore a citizen or subject.
(13) The First Papers of John Stube were recorded on January 7, 1887.(14) The Final Papers of John Stube probably were filed in 1890.(15)

2) Frederick Christian Stuebe, identified as Christopher in the last will and testament of his father, Philip Stube, was born in Germany November 11, 1841.(16) He died in Danville, Illinois, on March 19, 1916.(17) He married Fredericka Priess on June 8, 1865.(18) She was born in Germany in 1847. She died in Danville, Illinois, in 1908.

Frederick and Frederica (Priess) Stuebe had ten children: Frank (1866-1933); Louis (1869-1962); George (1872-1942); Lydia Coit (1875-1964); William (1877-1944); Albert (1880-1946); Josephine Riener (1882-1957); Lina (1885-1906); Phil (1889- ); and Ernest (1894- ).

A 1900 Illinois census record for Fritz C Stuebe, Vermilion County, Danville Ward 4, indicates a wife named Fredericka, a birth date of October 1846, age 53, year of immigration 1866, and 34 years in the United States. Children include George, Albert, Josephine, Lizzie, Phillip, and Ernest.

Two military service records have been located which show that a Frederick Stuebe was in Company C, 12th Infantry, from Danville, Illinois, and a Frederick Stebe was in the 35th Regiment, Illinois Infantry, Company D.
(19)

Naturalization papers were filed by Christian Stube on the 21st day of November 1870 whereby he declared on oath to Geo. Dillon, Clerk of the Circuit Court in Vermilion County, State of Illinois, he renounced forever all allegiance to the King of Prussia where of he was heretofore a citizen or subject.
(20). Christopher Stuebe may have immigrated to the United States in 1855.(21)

3) Fredericka Stuebe was born in Germany in 1844. She married George J. Walz on April 23, 1864, in Vermilion County, Illinois.(22) He was born in 1830 and died in 1907 in Danville, Illinois. George J. and Fredericka (Stuebe) Walz had six children: George Jr.; Harry, born in 1865; Karl, born in 1867; Albert, born in 1871; Emma Renckin, born in 1875 and died in 1953; and Lena Woolsey, born in 1878.

4) Frederick Stuebe was born in Germany on May 11, 1844. He died in Oakwood, Illinois, on November 4, 1933.(23) He married Mary Hageman on December 5, 1867, in Vermilion County, Illinois.(24) She was born in 1844. She died in Oakwood, Illinois, in 1927. Two military service records have been located which show that a Frederick Stuebe was in Company C, 12th Infantry, from Danville, Illinois, and a Frederick Stebe was in the 35th Regiment, Illinois Infantry, Company D.(25) Without obtaining the service records and further data it is not possible to determine which of the Frederick Stuebe brothers were in which units. Fred and Mary (Hageman) Stuebe had five children: John, Fred, Pete, Harry, and Oscar.

5) Mary Stuebe was born in Germany in October 2, 1848, and she died on August 12, 1937, in Danville, Illinois. She married Frederick Buy on August 28, 1867, in Vermilion County, Illinois.(26) He was born in Germany on October 23 1844, and he died in Danville, Illinois, on July 17, 1938.(27) He served in the 149th Illinois Infantry, Company E, during the Civil War.(28) Fred and Mary (Stuebe) Buy had eight children: Edward, born 1867; Carl, born 1874; Bill, born 1876; Harry, born 1879; Lulu; Mayme; Alice; and Jenny, born in 1871.

Hannah Stuebe first
married Ernst Lehmann on November 16, 1857.(29) The parents of Ernest Lehmann are not known nor is Ernest's date of birth. No one by the name of Lehmann or Lehman was listed in the 1850 census records for Vermilion County, Illinois, and we probably can assume Ernst came to America during the 1850s. Ernst apparently died or disappeared before the 1860 census. No other information is known about him.

Hannah (Stuebe) Lehmann was living in the household of her parents in the 1860 census and she was listed only as Hannah, not Hannah Lehmann.
(30) Emma apparently had not yet been born. Ernest and Hannah Lehmann were the parents of one child.

Emma Lehmann, the only known child of Ernest and Hanna (Stuebe) Lehmann, is listed in the 1870 U. S. Census for Illinois, Vermilion County, Danville Township as Emma Lorens, age 10 and born in Illinois.(31) Nothing else is known about Emma Lehmann (Lorens).

Hannah (Stuebe) Lehmann
married second Gottfried Lorenz on November 27, 1863.(32) Gottfried Lorenz was listed in the 1870 census as age 43, a cabinet maker, and born in Germany.(33) His parents are not known. His father and mother were foreign born according to the census and we can assume they probably were German. Gottfried is listed in the 1870 census as owning real estate of $700 and personal property of $150.

No other census record has been found for Gottfried Lorenz. Hannah was listed in the 1880 census as widowed or divorced.
(34) It appears Gottfried Lorenz probably came to the United States after the 1860 census.

Hannah was the mother of nine children, four of who were still living, according to the 1900 U. S. census for Illinois.
(35) One child of Ernest and Hannah Lehmann appears in census records: Emma. Five children of Gottfried and Hannah Lorenz appear in census records: Wilhelmina "Minnie" Fredericka, Louise, Mary, Fred, and Lena Lorenz.(36)

Louise Lorenz was born in 1865 in Illinois. She married Gottlieb Long on April 28, 1885, in Vermilion County, Illinois. The marriage record shows the names spelled Louisa Lorenz and Gottlieb Lang.(37) Louise died September 16, 1935, in Danville, Vermilion County, Illinois.(38)

Wilhelmina "Minnie" Fredericka Lorenz was born March 28, 1866.(39) Minnie Lorenz appears in the 1880 U.S. Census for Illinois, Vermilion County, Danville. She was listed as a servant living in the household of J. B. Mann, a lawyer.(40) The 1889 Danville, Illinois, Directory listed an Anna Stuebe as a domestic at J. B. Mann.(41) According to the 1889 Danville, Illinois, Directory, J. B. Mann was an attorney at law with an office in the First National Bank Building on West Main Street in Danville and a second office at 444 N. Franklin Street in Danville.(42)

Truxton James Older, a grandson of Minnie Lorenz, stated to Curtis L. Older that Minnie's given name was Wilhelmina Fredericka Lorenz and that her parents were Gottfried Lorenz and Hannah Stuebe. Truxton's sister, Wilma Jane (Older) Zillman, was named Wilma after Wilhelmina Lorenz, her paternal grandmother, and Jane after Lucy Jane Harmison, her maternal grandmother.

Minnie Lorenz
married James Grant Older on May 21, 1885, in Danville, Illinois.(43) James Grant Older was born in Mechanicsburg, Sangamon County, Illinois, on March 14, 1864.(44) He was the son of Samuel Clarence Older and Jane Eliza Baird.(45) James and Minnie Older were the parents of three children.(46) Minnie's husband died March 31, 1946, in Dearborn, Michigan. He was buried at Springhill Cemetery on Voorhees Street in Danville, Illinois.(47) Minnie (Lorenz) Older died at age 99 on April 27, 1965, in Dearborn, Michigan, where she lived with a daughter, Nellie (Older) O'Rourke.(48)

Mary Lorenz was born in 1869 in Illinois and Fred Lorenz was born in 1871 in Illinois.(49) Neither Mary Lorenz nor Fred Lorenz married. Both Mary and Fred Lorenz lived with their mother in 1900. Mary Lorenz died September 25, 1916, in Danville, Vermilion County, Illinois.(50) Her death was ruled a suicide.(51) Both Mary and Fred are buried with their mother at Springhill Cemetery in Danville, Illinois.(52) It seems likely that Gottfried and Hannah Lorenz had additional children between the time of Emma's and Louisa's birth. The children born during that time period must have died by the time of the 1870 census.

Lena Lorenz is listed in the 1880 U. S. census as a six year old daughter of Anna Lorenz.(53) Nothing else is known about Lena Lorenz. She died before the 1900 census was taken.

Gottfried Lorenz appears with his family in the 1870 U.S. Federal Census for Illinois, Vermilion County, Danville Township. The census lists Lorens, Gottfeid, age 43, white, a cabinet maker, value of real estate $700, value of personal property $150, born in Germany, father foreign born, mother foreign born, male citizen of U.S. of 21 years of age and upwards; Hannah Lorens, age 32, female, white, keeping house, born in Germany, father foreign born, mother foreign born; Emma, age 10, female, white, born in Illinois, attended school within the year; Louisa, age 4, female, white, born in Illinois; Minnie, age 3, female, white, born in Illinois; Mary, age 2, female, white, born in Illinois.
(54)

Minnie Lorenz appears in the 1880 U.S. Census for Illinois, Vermilion County, page 10, enumeration district number 211 in Danville, June 3, 1880, by William J. Davis. Dwelling 89, family 92, J. B. Mann, lawyer. Minnie Lorenz, white, female, age 13, female, relation to head of family - servant, civil condition - single, occupation - servant, born in Illinois, father born in Germany, mother born in Germany.
(55) Minnie appears to have been placed with a family that could take care of her, or where she could earn some income, by the time of the 1880 census.

In the 1880 U. S. census for Illinois, Vermilion County, city of Danville, Hannah Lorenz appears under the name Annie Lawrence.
(56) She is listed directly below the household of her parents, Philip Stuebe and Mary Stuebe. The 1880 census also identifies Anna Lorenz as widowed or divorced. Also listed in the household are Mary, age 12, Fred, age 10, and Lena, age 6. All of the children are listed as born in Illinois and their parents were born in Germany.

Gottfried Lorenz apparently abandoned his family before 1880. According to Wilma Jane (Older) Zillman, a great-granddaughter of Gottfried and Hannah Lorenz, Gottfried abandoned his family and disappeared from Danville, Illinois. It was rumored that he went to Chicago and married into the Guggenheim family.(57) The last will and testament of Philip Stube, dated September 17, 1873, made a specific provision for Fred Buy to hold in trust all property that was to go to Johannah Lawrence during the life of her husband, Gottfried Lawrence, and to pay the balance of rent and profits to Johannah Lawrence to the exclusion of her husband. If Johannah Lawrence died before her husband, Gottfried Lawrence, all of the property was to go to her children.(58) The location of Gottfried's death is not known.

The 1900 U. S. Census for Illinois, Vermilion County, Danville Township, lists Anna Lorenz and two of her children, Mary and Fritz (Fred) living together. The census record indicates Anna immigrated to the United States in 1856 and that she had lived in the United States 43 years. The record also indicates she was born in January 1838 and that she was the mother of nine children, 4 or whom were alive in 1900.
(59) The four children of Gottfried and Hannah Lorenz who were alive in 1900 were:(60)

1) Fred J. Lorenz died in 1951
2) Mary C. Lorenz died September 25, 1916
3) Louise (Lorenz) Long died September 16, 1935
4) Wilhelmina "Minnie" Fredericka Lorenz died in 1965


Hannah (Stuebe) Lorenz died in 1908 in Danville, Illinois.
(61) Truxton James Older, father of Curtis Lynn Older and a great-grandson of Hannah (Stuebe) Lorenz, took Curtis to the Springhill Cemetery on Voorhees Street in Danville, Illinois, about the year 2000 and showed him the grave of Hannah (Stuebe) Lorenz. She is buried between her daughter Mary Lorenz, and her son, Fred Lorenz. Nearby are the graves of Gottlieb and Louise (Lorenz) Long.

According to the estate papers for Hannah Lawrence on file at the Illiana Genealogical and Historical Society in Danville, Illinois, two parcels of real estate were owned by her at the time of her death.
(62) One tract was adjacent the Wabash, St. Louis and Pacific Railway and another was in Hezekiah Cunningham's Addition to Danville. Illinois.

The will of Anna Lorenz indicated the estate was to go to son Fred J. Lorenze, her daughters Mary Lorenze, Minnie Older, and Louise Long share and share alike as their sole and absolute property. Gottlieb Long was named as executor. The will was dated the 25th day of January 1908 and signed by Anna Lorenze with an "X". The witnesses to the will were O. A. McFarland, Frederick Buy, and Fred C. Stuebe, all residing in Danville, Illinois.
(63)

The Final Settlement of the estate was dated June 17, 1909.
(64) Notice was sent by mail to Fred J. Lorenz, Mary Lorenz, and Louisa Long at Danville, Illinois and to Minnie Older at Bloomington, Illinois.

A two thousand dollar Bond of Administrator with Will Annexed was dated 25th day of May A. D. 1908 was signed by Fred J. Lorenze and Mary Lorenz related to the estate of Anna Lorenze. The document also was signed by Fred Buy.
(65)

A document entitled "In the Matter of the Last Will and Testament of Anna Lorenze Deceased" for the April Term 1908 indicates that Anna Lorenz died on March 12, 1908 at Danville, Vermilion County, State of Illinois. The Petitioner further represents to the Court that the decedent left surviving her no husband; Fred J. Lorenze residing at 419 Short Street, Danville, Illinois; Mary Lorenze; Minnie Older residing at 802 East Market Street, Bloomington, Illinois; and Louise Long residing at 421 Short Street, Danville, Illinois; her children and only heirs at law.
