In Reply to: Re: Dielman Kolb on Mortonhouse, 1729 by Frank Kulp of 282

I believe there were actually 3 men with the name Dielman Kolb. Dielman (1) was born 1648 in Wolfsheim Germany, married Agnes Schumacher abt.1670 and died in 1712 in Mannheim Germany. They had 8 or 10 children (depends on the reference). The eldest, Peter (1671-1727) never left Germany. His 4 brothers, Henry (1679-1730), Martin (1680-1761), Johannes (1683-1765) & Jacob (1685-1739) arrived in Pennsylvania in 1707 or 1709, settled in Skippack, PA and are generally credited with starting the Kolb/Kulp/Culp families in the U.S. Their younger brother, Dielman (2) (1691-1756; m. Elizabeth) arrived in Skippack in 1717.

Peter had a son Dielman (3) who arrived in Philadelphia, with his wife Judith, on the Mortonhouse on August 9, 1729. This Dielman is most likely the one who obtained the 1745 deed, referred to by Frank Kulp in the earlier posting, in Bedminster Twonship, Bucks County, PA. They had at least 3 children (Henry, Elizabeth, Jacob). If I am correct, their son Henry is the father of Abraham and grandfather of John L. Kulp.
