Any "New Coeln" (Milwaukee Co.) historians out there?

Is any reader aware of a local historian or collection of information with information on the unincorporated village of what was New Coeln? This was located in the business area that is at the south edge of Mitchell airport and Howell Ave. Remnants of the area include St. Stephens Catholic church, and a restaurant. The township was Town of Lake prior to annexation by the surrounding communities.

I have looked, but not found published materials in Milwaukee area collections (like MPL, Milw. Co. Hist. Soc., UWM A.R.C.), just references in a variety of records that are part of my family research.

Thanks for any leads on this research query.

There are a couple previous posts re new coeln (incl mine indicating the Ancestry 1870 census somehow put the Wauwatosa listings under New Coeln).
One of the other ones has an extensive list on surnames from research in that area....might be a start.
I just put coeln in the search box & poked Milw board & they came up.

I have done a bit of research concerning the New Coeln area of Lake Township. My ancestors settled there in the 1840's and were founding members of St. Stephen's Church.

Let me know what information that you are seeking. I may have some info in my database.

Thanks for your response to my query on New Colen research.

My genealogy research is focused on Town of Lake pioneer families (beginning in 1847), but in the northern half of the old township: section 16, on Clement Ave [homestead across from the former Nash plant] and west to Whitnal and Howell Avenues. Some of the interconnected families lived in the New Coeln village area as well.

I'll send you email with some of my specific interests about the history of that area.

Hello,
My research includes the surnames you have listed and would be interested in comparing notes.

I don't see any common names in my 2003 posting to the names you've listed in your posting, but you're welcome to contact me through email if you have any questions. I don't use message boards in place of email. My family tree is already posted on the free Rootsweb site (without sources).

For some reason it occurs to me that you're familiar with the ongoing German newspaper indexing project I've created.

Indeed...via FB MGN page and you provided look ups for me as well. I thought I was replying to the post by jfscheiding but it's always good to touch base. I'm very impressed with the information you provide via your indexing project and look forward to the examples posted. . guess hoping too, that some noteworthy post on the Loch/Lock family will reveal itself from your efforts.
Thank you.

My grandparents went to St. John's Lutheran Church as my mother and I did, which at one time was where the airport runway now crosses Howell ave. I have a 1950 St. John's 100th Anniversary booklet that is interesting reading. It would appear that a number of my relatives might have lived in the area that was called New Coeln.
my email is wggroth@gmail.com if interested. --W. Groth

I have that church and cemetery listed in a New Coeln bibliography I've been working on (since 1999!) from references I found to the old location. I haven't seen the anniversary book, and it's not apparent from the MPL catalog whether they have a copy of it. I think the library has a photo that show the cemetery during removal ("cemeteries" photo file, and not a formal photo of the grounds).

I've given the anniversary book, for temporary use, to a Ron Winkler who is working on a history of the Town of Lake for "Images of America". Are you interested in looking at it when he is done? Some of my relatives were founding members of St. John's and are buried in the cemetary that was moved by Milwaukee county to a special section at Forest Hill cemetary in Oak Creek.
