I am a descendent of Charles Botkin (or Bodkin)(1738-1782, born in No. Ireland) and Jemima Karhl (Curl) (1763-1807), daughter of Maj. Isaac Karhl (Curl) a soldier from the German State of Hesse by way of their descendent Abram Botkin (1808-1898) who was the son of Sarah Hester and George Botkin. My grandmother was Annie O. Gordon who was a granddaughter of Abram Botkin. Annie's only offspring was my father, Merrick Weldon Davis (1895-1975) b. in Springfield, Oh and I am his only son. There are many descendents from Charles and Jemima, many of whom lived and died in Ohio. Many descendents probably still live in Ohio. I have some information about the Botkin/Curl family but would like to correspond with others who are building the Botkin/Curl family tree and can add information to what I have already.Most of the information that I have is about the Botkin surname family.I am interested in filling in details about the Karhl (Curl) family. I think Jemima had a sister who may have married another Botkin, but not sure about this.
