Product description...

Can A German family succeed in America?


This is the story of the Liebrich family, who left a well established reputation in Butzbach, Germany to begin anew in the American colonies. This thoroughly researched book goes beyond the usual recitation of vital statistics to reveal what the lives of each generation of the family were like. Relying on church records and published German research, nearly 600 years of German history is reviewed, including the family's role in the Protestant Reformation, its travels around central Germany, and its political and guild leadership in Butzbach. Beginning with its arrival in Philadelphia in 1754 and settlement in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, the family's success in re-establishing itself in the colonies is documented. After several generations of life in Pennsylvania, the family's pioneering moves from central Pennsylvania to Indiana in 1837, and on to Kansas in 1872 are detailed. The successes and failures of four generations of Leebricks who still live in Kansas vividly demonstrate the strength of the human spirit and the respect that comes from living lives of integrity. While the author emphasizes his own paternal line, families of siblings and the women they married are also documented.
