I am looking for information about the family of Mary Ballever/Bollever/Ballevre Koshmeder/Koschmeder/Koschmider. She is believed to have been living in Maxfield, Bremer County, Iowa as of April 1883, because she is identified as one of the next of kin or heirs at law to Jean Nicholas Bollever of New Bremen, Lewis County, New York in a legal notice published in the local newspaper. I think that I have found the family in the 1885 Iowa census, but am interested in earlier records if available, to try to establish their arrival date in Iowa. Mary Ballever (also sometimes referred to as Marie-Anne and Maryann) was born in Altviller, Moselle, France and immigrated to Lewis County, New York in about 1852, with her widowed father and some siblings. I believe that the marriage date is sometime after June 1860 (date she appears in Federal Census living with her father and some siblings). Jean Nicholas Bollever is my 3rd great grandfather and I'm trying to track down his children and their descendants. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
