It isn't often that a man takes his wife's surname, but in the case of my great uncle's sister, Lena Kohl, family lore has it that her husband Charles name was Jones, but because he felt closer to the Kohl family than his own, he took the Kohl name when they married. I have no documentation to substantiate that. Lena Kohl was born about 1870, daughter of John Wolfe Kohl (01 Oct 1846-01 Sep 1927) and Sarah Walpole Kohl (1846-bef.1925). The Kohl family first came to America, arrived in New York City 29 Aug 1845 and then whent to Milwaukee, and later to Washington Co. (Addison Tsp., St. Lawrence, Slinger, Kohlsville) and some move to Wood and Marathon Counties. The 1920 Census for Stratford, Marathon Co., WI shows Charles (age 60) & Lena (age 49) Kohl, and their children, Mildred, 17, Elmer, 14, Walter, 12, Susan, 4, adopted son George, age illegible... may be 12 or 6/12. I would like any information on Charles Jones>Kohl, his birth parents, place of birth, etc. I would estimate his birth year as 1870 or before.

I am searching for information on the ancestry of Johann 'John' Kohl & Barbara Gerstner, also searching for their descendants. This family was Catholic. Johann "John" Kohl and wife Barbara Gerstner arrived NYC 29 Aug 1845 on the ship Elizabeth Dennison from Hamburg. I believe their hometown was Mandel, Bavaria. Traveling with them were their children, Barbara's father Jacob Gerstner and her two younger siblings, plus probably Johann's brother Friedrich kohl and family. They came first to Milwaukee then settled in Addison Township, St Lawrence and Slinger area Washington Co.,WI.

Pasted below is a copy of a message I received. Does anyone have any further information they can provide? Judie Cale Nelson ***************** Dear colleagues, I only know that Wilhelm Martin Kohl was born Jan 19, 1920, in Balhorn, Germany, and that he died April 4, 1945, in Kopenhagen as a member of the German occupation troops. His wife (and children) lived in the Bremen , it seems, before they immigrated to the US. The mother always tried to conceal the German identity of the father - was he maybe even a member of the SS troops? Do you have any further information?

Hi Kohl List Members!! Last week I spoke with an old friend of mine who has done a great deal of research on the Kohl family. She is not on the internet, so I asked her if it was ok to give her address to other Kohl researchers and she said 'yes'. If you are researching any of the Kohl families in Wisconsin, and would like to correspond with my friend via snail mail, please write me an email with "Kohl Researcher" listed in the subject line and I will send her mailing address to you.

There have been several new researchers subscribe to the KOHL list lately, so maybe it is time for a roll call. Here is my immigrant ancestor: Philipp Jacob KÖHL, b. 17 June 1803, St. Johann now part of Saarbrücken, Saarland, Germany. His parents were Georg Ludwig KÖHL and Anna Margaretha KARCHER. I have traced both the Köhl and Karcher back to the mid 1500's in Germany. Philipp emigrated about 1833 to Ripley Co. IN where he married Elizabeth HAURI/ HOWERY there 19 Dec 1836. They had 12 children. They lived in Morgan Co. IN and then Carver Co. MN where Philipp died in 1870. Philipp changed the spelling of his name to CALE. Judie Cale Nelson List admin
