I am looking to exchange information on our family. I have information on our family line to Christian Paulsen and Esther Multsen, both born and raised in Germany. They spoke a lot of Schleswig, Holstein. They had four children, Frederick Carl, William, Sophia, and Charlotte. Frederick and his father came to the United States in 1872 and the rest of the family came later. Frederick Carl married Mary Josephine Senn (born in Iowa) in 1877 and they had eleven children. Gustave Carl, Amalia (Ollie), Emma Walburger, Irene Winnefred, Olga (Olefa Catherine), Rosalia Genevieve, Carl Frederick, Frederick Gustave, Cecilia Ethel, Mary Adele, and Josephine. Sophia married Henry Petersen and they had four children- Lena, Emma, Matilda, and Mollie. Charlotte married John Bulck. (information gets confusing about children in my notes that relate to Sophia and her daughter Lena, John Bulck and Matilda) Mollie married Emil Sommerfeldt and they had four boys and one daughter Dora. I have more information as to the eleven children of Frederick Carl and Mary Josephine. Too much to put here. If any of these are your ancestors then we are family and we can start to connect any of the missing factors of our lineage.
