John Andrew and Anna Marie Gubser


Information comes from the family files at the Campbell County Historical & Genealogical Society in Alexandria


John Andrew Gubser was born 14 Dec 1830 in St Gallen Switzerland, the son of Andreas (Andrew) (31 July 1803-6 May 1876) and Magdalena Mary Gubser (17 Oct 1808-12 Mar 1885). He married Anna Marie Chalk, a widow in Campbell Co on 19 Apr 1853 at the St Peter & Paul Church at Twelve Mile in California.  Anna Marie Chalk was born 5 Aug 1822 in Puttlinger France to Frank and Anna (Trouy) Chalk.  The area where they lived became know as Gubser Mill.  John died 20 Oct 1897 at Gubser Mill and was buried in the St Peter and Paul Cemetery.  Anna died 15 Oct 1891 at Gubser Mill and was also buried at the St Peter and Paul Cemetery.

Also, the 1860 Census of Campbell County, Kentucky lists Frank Chalk and wife Susan as having four children: Joseph (8), John (6), Frank (5), and Elizabeth (3). His profession is listed as farmer and born in France and wife born in Switzerland. Almost all of these early Gubser and Chalk ancestors from Puttelange, France are buried in the Sts. Peter and Paul Cemetery at Twelve Mile, Kentucky. The early town was named Gubser's Mill and now is called California Crossroads.
