And, it’s about “Frederick Muller(n) of New Mexico.
I know – from several sources that one of the son-in-law of Charles Beaubien of New Mexico (large land grantee that later became the ‘Maxwell Land Grant’) was Frederick Muller.He married Maria Teodora Beaubien and their children were Leonore, Albert (my ancestor), and Frederick (Jr) all born in the 1860s (one source is: http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=REG&db=wolfordsheppard&id=I137800http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=REG&db=wolfordsheppard&id=I137800)
However, when I check there seems to be a “Frederick Muller” who was captain of Troop E of Teddy Roosevelt’s Rough Riders.A write-up on him (http://books.google.com/books?id=o1CwTgi4tw8C&pg=PA491&lpg=PA491&dq=frederick+muller+rough+rider&source=bl&ots=JS30eyzXyh&sig=kPuBYCQQNjR2-PaxLqq0vwo0Zq0&hl=en&ei=GBzITd3MLYr6sAPT1Ly8AQ&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=10&ved=0CFkQ6AEwCTgo#v=onepage&q&f=false) lists his vitals as: Muller, Frederick Born January 25, 1853 in Wurtenberg, Germany Married in Santa Fe NM, Adella Miller Six children: Frederick, Jr. (a practicing dentist in Taos) Alfred Adela Theodore R. William G. Elsie May, all living and residing in Santa Fe (at the time of the posting).
So, I’m confused… Is the Frederick Muller who served with Teddy Roosevelt the same one who lived in Taos?Or was it his son, Fred, jr? Or were there at least TWO Frederick Mullers – one who lived in Taos and was husband or descendant to the wife of Charles Beaubien, and one who came later and enlisted with TR?
Anyone have any thoughts to clarify? (Go gentle on me, I’m a newbie to this genealogy stuff…)
