I am descended from the Kaul family who is related to the Bollenbachs.This is the information that I have:
Ludwig KAUL and Elisabeth BOLLENBACHwere marriedon 7 July 1855 in Oderheim, Bavaria (near Duchroth).Ludwig was born 9 Apr 1828, the son of Johann Nicolaus KAUL of Waldbockelheim and his first wife Sabina.Elisabeth was born 5 January 1835 in Duchroth, the daughter of Nicholas Bollenbach and Magdalena Frick.Family legend has it that Nicholas was a wealth tavern owner.I have copies of the marriage record from Duchroth as well as the baptism record for Elisabeth that were given to me by my cousin, who has visited the Duchroth area.I would be happy to put you in touch with her.
Ludwig & Elisabethalong with their 5 children came to America on the SS New York from Bremen to New York, arriving 25 Jun 1866.They settled in Richardson Co., Nebraska, where 3 more children were born.Their children were as follows: Lizzie Kaul, b. Oct. 1855, m. Peter A. Smith , and lived on a farm near Dawson, NE Maggie Kaul, b. 1858, m. Fred Hani and lived near Barnard, KS Louis Kaul, b. June 21, 1860, worked in Montana, died young and unmarried Jake Kaul, b. March 3, 1863, m. Emma Simmons, lived near Barnard, KS Fred Kaulb. Sept. 6, 1865, m. Elizabeth Frey, lived near Barnard, KS Otto Kaulb. May 15, 1868, m. Clara Osborn, lived near Blackwell, OK Albert Kaul, b. March 02, 1871, m. Essie, farmed the home place in Nemaha, Richardson, NE. Rosa Kaulb. Jan. 10, 1874, m. Jacob Ayers, lived near her brother Albert.
Other bits of information: Family records that have been passed down include a description of Louis Kaul given by Elisabeth’s nephew Adolf Bollenbach.Also, in the 1900 census for Nemaha, Richardson, NE, Albert and Essie Kaul had a cousin Henry Bollenbach living with them.One other connection is that when my ggrandfather Fred Kaul died on March 15, 1933, flowers were sent by “Grandma Bollenbach, Albert and Kate of Weatherford, OK.”
I would be very much interested in corresponding with you and sharing any additional information.
