I happen to have a list of emigrants from Simonswolde to America. The Krulls listed, with their dates of emigration, are:
Jan Ailt Krull and wife (nee Stapelmoor), with two children (1863)
Tole Krull (1864)
All three were young men and possibly brothers.
Jannes Klaassen Krull, with wife (nee Smit) and 4 children (1864)
Jannes Krull, junior (1864)
Hinderk E. Krull (1869)
Weert E. Krull (1869)
Hinderk Folkers Krull (1872) -- occupation blacksmith
Jannes Krull and wife Imke Mareke Hermannssen (1875)
Albert Krull (widower) with 6 children (1890)
There were also 3 emigrants in the 20th century. All of the above-listed Krulls were almost certainly related to one another, as Simonswolde is a small place.
I'm descended from Weert Krull, who emigrated in 1869. To my knowledge, emigrants from Simonswolde went to three places in the U.S.: Stephenson County, Ill., Grundy Center, Iowa, and Lyon County, Iowa.
Weert eventually settled in Lyon County, which was predominantly populated by emigrants from Simonswolde. I have more information on Simonswolde (having been there), and more on Weert Krull, but nothing on any of the other Krull emigrants. I'd be interested in learning how your ancestor ended up in southern Illinois.
