CATHERINA MARGARETHA ECKS OR EX
Catherina Margaretha Ecks was born about 1860 in Walter, Russia, to John J. Ecks (or Ex) and his wife Rosina Roth. Catherina married George Hill and they had a daughter on November 28, 1882. They named her Anna Katherine Hill (but most of her life she was known as Georgia Hill). Catherina died when Georgia was a baby. George married Catherina’s sister, Katherine Elisabeth Ecks and they emigrated to America in 1888, settling in Culbertson, Nebraska.
JOHN J. ECKS OR EX
John J. Ecks and his wife, Rosina Roth, lived in Walter, Russia. They had at least three children that we know of before John died: Catherina Margaretha, Katharina Elisabeth, and Jacob. After John died, his wife married George Fahrenbruch and they emigrated to America in July of 1893 settling in Nebraska. Rosina died in March of 1898 in Hastings, Nebraska, and Friedrich died four years later.
