Wilhelm William George Sieber

Wilhelm William George Sieber was the son of Jacob Sieber and Ann Barbara Diedrich.

The family moved from Sheboygan, Wisconsin to Colby, Clark, Wisconsin in 1878.

William married Rosalie Ann Greenwood, the daughter of Henry H Greenwood and Phoebe Elizabeth Myhill, in Colby on April 11, 1898.

The couple lived in the town of Hull, Marathon County, Wisconsin, which is adjacent to the town of Colby in Clark County. The couple had four/five children, before William died of tuberculosis in 1907. The children were Hattie Auralie (Edwin) Kraus 1906, Albert William 1902-1928, George R 1903-1908, Henry Richard 1904, and likely Arno 1906-1906.

After William died in 1907, Auralie married Frederick Johann Diedrich Burhop in 1909. The couple with William's children also lived in Hull, and had four more additional children: Louis 1911, Alvina Rosalie (Gustave) Gollhardt 1917, Lydia Elvira 1919, and Ercell F 1920.

This index shows references as "tnmo", Tombstone, Neilsville Court House Record, Marriage Announcement, Obituary; and possibly buried in Division A.
