My maternal grandfather was Gerhard Krull . Can't seem to get back any further than his grandfather, then the trail runs dry. Any information would be helpfull. This is what I have so far (They were from Ostfriesland). My grandfather = Gerhard Krull born June 15,1890, (Marx, Germany, I think) (Married to Hedi Gretchen Braams). Came to LeMars ,Iowa. in 1911,or 1912, then went back to Germany and returned to Ia.in 1926. They also lived in Seattle and Hawarden for a short time.
Gerhard had (all in Germany) 4 brothers- Johann, Heinrich, Wilhelm, and 1 sister- Hanni. His parents were
FATHER: Johann (Jan) Krull -born Jan 9,1852 and died Mar. 8, 1934. Jan's parents were Hinrich Cornelius Krull, unknown birth, died 1915, Jan's mother was Antje Jantzen unknown birth and death.
MOTHER: Cathrina (Etta) Ufken (Wife of Jan Krull) born Aug. 31,1851, died 1899. (she had a brother Wilhem, who lived in leMars, Ia.) Etta's parents were Johann Willms Ufken unknown birth and death, and mother was Catherine M.Cassens born 1832, died Aug. 1, 1888.
I can't seem to find any connection back any further than my grandfather's grandfather, any information or connection you see to any of the names, I would really appreciate knowing. (wish I would have asked more questions when he was alive) Thankyou anyone for any info you have or find. Else Bonthuis
