  • Notes 
    • Henry Krebill was about 10 years of age when his family, the Friedrich Krebills, arrived at Hayesville, Ohio. In a letter to their folks in Germany dated early in 1837, Henry's mother stated thathe had canpleted his apprenticeship but was still working for his employer.

      From some early correspondence we gather that perhaps Henry had apprenticed for a shoe-maker and leather merchant which trade he may have followed before he got into the Colorado mining and ranching business.

      Included the the "Altleiningen Krebills" book are letters and excerpts of letters written by Henry and by others about Henry. These letters indicate to some measure the itinerant'
      mode of living he followed during most of his adult life.

      Henry Krebill spent the last years of his life at the home of his nephew Frederick H. Krebill, near Donnellson, Iowa, where he lived in retirement until the time of his demise.
