In Reply to: Foveaux - Berling of Ill. and Ks. by Vicki Rutledge of 2

Vicki: I do believe your Julia is a sister of my Grandmother Lena Berling, whose parents are Sebastien and Mary (Wolf/Wolfe) Berling....and a Sister to Elizabeth (Berling) & Julius Bohn, who married in Peoria and went on to Wamego Kansas.
However, I know for a fact that "Berling" handle is not right....Sebastien came from Alsace Lorraine France, and his German pronunciation of his name----some norsky census taker couldn't understand his German and wrote it down as Berling! He is also found under Birling/Beerling. The name should have been "Burlen".
They settled in Milwaukee area when first coming over here. I have some information and a few pictures of Eliz & Julius's family in Wamego. I also have several generations in France, but I cannot locate the old couple= as to where they are buried over you know?
I am not a subscriber to genforum, and had been trying to run down another contributor of a tree that had these names in it and was unsuccessful, til another kind feller seen your note and passed it on to me. my ads is would be very interested to see what we have going here....sure looks like a connection.
happy new year !
