From France came, the pioneer CARBIENER family.

GEORGE CARBIENER was born in Alsace, in the land of the fleur-de-lis, and after spending the first twenty-five years of his life in his native country, came to America, locating in Wayne County, Ohio.

From there he came to St. Joseph County, Indiana, in April, 1854, and resumed his agricultural labors in Union Township, Marshall County, his death in this section occurring at the age of seventy-four. His wife, also a native of France, lived to bf forty-one.

There were nine children, three sons and six daughters. Jacob, one of the sons, was born in Ohio in 1852, and was two years of age when the family went from Ohio to St. Joseph County. He grew to manhood on the old home farm in Union Township. During his boyhood days he assisted his father in clearing and improving his land, and at the age of twenty-one moved to a farm in German Township, this county. Later he became a manufacturer and business man in Bremen.
