Dear Richard, I don't think the Martin Behling, born Oct. 2, 1718, is the one I have been looking for.My Martin died before the rest of his family (wife and children) left Prussia.My Martin's wife's name is Henrietta Louisa (Braatz) Behling. (Her date of birth was March 1, 1819.)She and her children: Frederick, Wilhelmina, Frank, August, Henry, Louisa, and Augusta, came to the U.S.A. somewhere between 1868 and 1873. Your Martin's wife was Reka Kolls Behling.They had three sons: Carl William, Robert Paul, and Henry Albert. Do you happen to know if there's a way to track down a marriage license?Perhaps if I could get the marriage license information, I would have more information to go on.Otherwise, at this point, I'm stuck. Thank you so much for sharing what you had with me.I wish you well in your search and, if you could be of any further assistance to me, I sure would appreciate it.
