* The Gottlieb and Bertha Pobanz. Schauer Family Home Page*

Updated March 11, 2011

Gottlieb Schauer, son of Herman Schauer and Wilhelmina Faedtke, was born in Bieslof, Germany, November 11, 1857. He had a sister named Augusta (Schauer) Ziehm, but do not know the names of any other siblings. We would like information from others doing their family tree regarding this possibility. Gottlieb married Bertha Emilie Louise Pobanz, in Chicago, Illinois, on February 15th, 1880. At the time, Bertha was 18 years old. Her sister was Auguste Wilhelmine Pobanz Nickel,(aka Minnie and Tante Mina by relatives) married to Peter Nickel. Her brother was Adolf Albert Pobanz, married to Ida Kading. Bertha and Gottlieb's marriage license spells it as Pobantz, but we have seen alternate spellings of Poblantz, Pobenz, Pobanz.
