Hello everyone! I'm looking to see if I can find any members of the Burkholder family from in and around Blanchard, Michigan. Here's my connection.
My great-great-grandmother is Anna A. Burkholder, born 8 Feb 1844, died 9 Dec 1909.
She was born in Ohio (I have also seen things that have said she was born in Pennsylvania) and she married Casper Nohl in Henry County, Ohio on 12 Aug 1869.
As far as I know they had 5 children. They were:
Alexander Nohl, born about 1870
Daniel Nohl, born 18 Aug 1872, died 13 Jan 1943
Casper Nohl, born 18 Oct 1875, died 5 Oct 1938
Jacob Nohl, born 20 Nov 1878, died 21 Feb 1932
Mary Christina Nohl, born 20 Feb 1884, died 7 Sep 1945
The information which I have found lists Anna's parents as Peter Burkholder (some accounts have also said John) of Switzerland and Christena Baily of Pennsylvania.
I know that Peter and Christena had at least 3 children (I'm sure they had more, however); the names I have are Anna herself, Sarah, and an unknown male.
Sarah Burkholder,sister of Anna and born 3 Aug 1853, died 18 Jan 1931, married Jacob Master 15 Jul 1875 in Henry County, Ohio. They had at least 6 children, 2 boys and 4 girls, the names of which I have are Reuben, Daisy, and Samuel.
That is all of the info which I have at the moment. If any of this sounds familiar to any of your family, feel free to drop me a line....my email address is:email@example.com
