Kobs Pioneer Cemetery

Albert Kobs (1845-91) emigrated from Germany in 1867. His wife, Henrietta C. (Labs) Kobs (1848-82) emigrated from the same area in 1870 and the couple soon married. They purchased a farm in 1874, on which five of their eight children were born. Before 1900 as many as twenty-five Kobs relatives were buried here in the cemetery, established in 1879. The only marked graves are those of Henrietta C. Kobs and her sons, Charles and August, who both died in 1879.
