Hello! I was wondering if someone may be able to help me solve something about my Kugler Family.
My grandmother was born in 1932 to Andrew Phillips (1889) and Justina Kugler (1910).
My great-grandmother, Justina, has an interesting but mysterious past.
Justina was born to Karl (Carl) Kugler. Karl, as far as I know, had a couple of daughters: Clara, Paulina, and Justina.
Between 1910 and 1930, Karl was with Paulina in America about the Philadelphia area. Paulina married Andrew Phillips. In September of 1929, Justina came to America. Three months later, on New Year's day 1930, Paulina died (Yellow Fever?) and within 2 years, Andrew and Justina got married and had many kids.
The more interesting part: Clara and Justina would say our family is related to Kaiser Wilhelm. We were also Barons and Baroness in the German area and have a swiss bank account taken during WWI. These may be tall tales, but they were persistent throughout the years.
Any input would help!
