We now have three genealogy files on this site: our main database which is a combined ‘Ives-Leedom’ tree, plus two additional working trees with so-far unconnected people I've found along the way, ‘Leedoms-unknown’ and ‘Netherlands-unknown’. All of the Search results will identify which tree contains the individual or place in question.

Different sources sometimes have conflicting information and there are undoubtedly a few typographical errors in here as well. Please feel free to send us any corrections to errors you may find in our files. Additions are always welcome too!

    Notes 
    • A transcription of his 1883 marriage record gives his parent's names as Joseph Horbeck and Maria Glere(?) though her surname is very unclear.

      A card for the 1915 IA State Census states he was 61 years old, married, and in 1914 had made $640.00 from his occupation. He had been in the US for 37 years and in Iowa for 37 years. These details would put his birth year at 1854 and his immigration year as 1878. In the 1900 census he stated he was born Nov 1854 and subsequent census ages put his birth year at 1854-1855. It's possible the newspaper obituary was incorrect in giving his birth year as 1851 and I am entering it here as 1854 based on the consistency of his statements in census records from 1885-1930.

      Resided with his wife Ida in Webster Co IA in 1920, his immigration year given as 1882 and naturalized in 1900.

      Finding his 1944 obituary provided me his exact birth dates, in 1854 as previous documents had shown was probable.

      A marriage record in Weimar, Thuringia shows that a Johan Heinrich Heerback with that same birth date was married on 31 Mar 1879 to Friedericke Amalie Sulze. It however names Johann's parents as Ludwig and Marie Elisabeth Heerbach.

      Obituary in the Antigo Daily Journal on 16 Sep 1944, p. 5:
      Henry Harbeck, 92, Dies This Morning

      Mr. Harbeck was born near Essen, Germany, on Nov. 14, 1851, and came to this county when a young man. For 71 years he lived in Iowa, where he was weight master for a coal company. He came to this community about two years ago.
      He was married in 1884 to Ida Clark, who survives him. He also leaves two sons, William Harbeck of Antigo, and Charles Harbeck of Oak Park, Ill. Three children preceded him in death.
      Funeral services will be held at the McCandless and Zobel funeral home Monday at 2 p.m., with the Rec. Victor T. Nearhoof officiating. Burial will be in Elmwood cemetery.
      Friends may call at the funeral home from Sunday noon to the time of the funeral.
