G. Friedrich Kubach
This monument for G. Friedrich Kubach, located in the North Ridge section of Sandusky's Oakland Cemetery has fallen down, but Mr. Kubach's name is clearly legible. In the 1860 U.S. Census for Erie County, Ohio, the Kubach family (spelled Kuback by the census enumerator) is listed as:
Frederick, age 38, born in Baden
Magdaline, age 20, born in Baden
and the children, all born in Ohio:
Christina, age 10
August, age 7
Charles, age 5
William, age 2
Another person, John Shepley, age 10, also lived with the Kubach family.
The book SANDUSKY THEN AND NOW, has this listing in the section on German Settlers in Sandusky:
Kubach, Friedr., b. May 1, 1822, in Liedolsheim, Baden, d. Jan. 8, 1865; m. July 7, 1850 to Magdal. Schopfle, b. Aug. 31, 1833, in Kretzingen, Baden
SANDUSKY THEN AND NOW, which was written by Ernst Von Schulenburg in the German language, and translated into English by Norbert A. and Marion Cleaveland Lange, is an excellent resource on the people of German heritage who settled in Sandusky.
