Mary, I am looking for info about a Julius Carl Gehlhar who married Ottilie Renn, she was born in Wisconsin. Their children were Paul S., Carl August and Gustav Adolph, and there may have been others. Could you shed any light on this family ? I am researching the Renn lines, Thanks in advance !! Judy

Lonna, I didn't get any response to that query, I am trying to find out whether or not Ottilie was related to my Renns. Some of my line Renns ended up in Minnesota, and I also find her here. My people come from PA. , Iowa and then unto MN. I think I have finally got them tracked back to Franklin Twp., Lycoming Co., PA. If I remember right my grandmother said they come from Germay via France, that I haven't got as of yet. I will try to look a bit further and see if I can make any connections for you Ottilie, Judy

thanks for your response. I'll talk to my Dad about this. I've heard the name Renn around the family many times so I'm sure we're talking about the same people. I don't think anyone in the family has done any ancestry but I could be wrong. Keep in touch!!

I just found your post from 2009 and was curious. My grandpa was Paul Julius and his Dad was Julius. Paul's brother was Carl. I have been researching Elizabeth Lund and wondered what searches you have done. I live in Hudson, WI and had no idea our ancesters settled in Germania, WI. Carl Julius came to the U.S. from Posen, germany.

My great grand uncle & aunt Ludwig Gehlhar & Emilie Fedder,lived in Wischin Hauland Kreis Kolmar Posen,Germany-USA 1884. His sisters family, August Heckstein & Henriette Gehlhar lived in Palajewo in kreis Obornik,their only daughter to survived an epidemic which killed her family came with the Gehlhar family in 1884 to Elgin,MN. Hope this may aid you where to look in Posen,Germany-now Poland, in LDS church records.
