2 Philipp Abel Margareta Dressler Children - 5 children born between 1886 & 1894
My g-grandmother was Magdalena Woll (1817-1907), from Bischmisheim.
Her mother was Carolina Linkhauer (1790-1850), born in Neuenkirchen, and her father was Nickel Woll (1794-1854), of Bischmisheim.
Carolina Linkhauer's mother was Christina Abel (c1750-c1815), parents unknown, from Neuenkirchen.
To complicate things further, Nickel Woll's father, John Jacob Woll (1759-1837) was a brother of Anna Barbara Woll's (1764-1844) (above).
