Jerry Hoffman I was interested in your ULRICH posting.I am the Adopted g-son of John Allen Ulrich, born 1831 in Waldek,Germany as was my father and four of his six sisters. John Allen, migrated sometime before the civil war as a singleman and fought five years with the union army. He inlisted in the Kentucky Volunteers, though he listed his "income" state as Pennsylvania. The first Ulrichs, I believe imigrated to PA in about 1715 but I have been able to make no connection. The secon wave came about 40 years later I have been told. Grandfather was discharged in 1865 and returned to Germany where he married Anna Balz.Anna,and children migrated in 1879 to a farm in Coffey Co. Kansas and are in the 1880 census in Keywest Twsp. John must have had relatives in the Pittsburg, and Parsons, Ks area. He later moved to Osage Couty near the town of Vassar, KS and the family was well respected in the area.I felt there might be some connection with your family in the Pittsburg area.There is another brother, of John Allen, that I know of. His name was John Jacob and he also lived and is buried in the Vassar area. Respectfully.
