1977 Karl Catob & Karl Kube in Germany


  • Howse, Joanne Marie Heinz:
Karl was married to Alma in Riesenberg, Germany on 8 Mar 1919. Her maiden name was Elmo. Karl was very attached to his older brother, Hans (John Catob). He came to this country to meet his brother's family. Very nice man!
When asked if he knew the family genealogy, he said he'd send the pedigree that he obtained in East Germany before the wall came down, by special privilege, because of his government position as head of Education in West Germany (in Marineburg (sp) West Prussia). After World War II that town was given to Russia or Poland and the family was expelled from the area and moved to West Germany. All of the genealogical material from John Catob back, came from the Hitler lists proving they were not Jewish.
Karl was a submarine sailor in WW I. He lost a leg in an accident, whether in the military or not we don't know. Uncle Karl loved to sing the old German songs. He sang most of a night with Aunt Johanna Schwerdtfeger while visiting Michigan. Karl lived in "Marineborg" before war. Karl lived in Bidkenbach, Toenisheide, W. Ger. his last several years. He collected stamps in his later years.
