Dear Ms. Ladouceur,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
The Federal Government does not ordinarily create or maintain birth, death, marriage or divorce records. Such records are made and kept by State and local governments rather than the National Archives. Since you have already searched online and with the Minnesota Historical Society for birth certificates, we suggest that you directly contact the Winona County Clerk of Court to request a birth record search. As it was noted in Find A Grave biography for Mary Bosch that she received a Catholic service, we also suggest that you contact the Diocese of Winona-Rochester Archives to request a search for the baptismal records of Mary Loibl.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
Minnesota did not have civil registration of births until 1900. The Clerk of the District Court of Winona County MN has some birth records as early as 1870, but since most births took place at home with only the family and possibly a midwife present registration was spotty at best.
Did your Mary Loibl marry John Grosam? If so, by the May 1885 MInnesota state census her family is listed as Joseph Liebl, 34 born Bohemia, Mary 34 born Germany, Mary Ann 3 born MN, & Barbara 1 born MN are living in Nicollet Co MN. This Mary Ann Lieble was born 6 April 1882, daughter of Joseph Lieble and Mary Richters.
There is also a Mary Loibl who married Stephen Bosch, who according to her Montana death certificate was born 4 Jul 1882, the daughter of John & Matilda Loibl.
Can you help us pin down which woman you are looking for?
My great grandmother was married to Stephen Bosch. Her death certificate states that her father was Joe from Hungary and her mother unknown. I don't see anything listing her parents as John and Matilda.
Thanks for your time.
I'm sorry I confused the two Mary Loibls (or Leibls). They both were in Nicollet Co MN as children & born only months apart.
Nicollet Co kept birth records as early as 1870 and they are on familysearch.org. You will find Mary Ann Leibl's birth April 1882 recorded in Vol B, page 97/98, line #191 at https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-C9T4-2CKR?i=168&cat=232425 Her parents are Joseph Leibl and Mary Richter.
Found birth certificate for Stephen and Marie's ninth child Frank.
