sorry but I did not check this area for a long time. My Grandfather was Charles Woll and his Father was Anthony. I do not know where they came from.

My father passed away eleven years ago. He was always secretive about his family. Shortly before he died he did mention that he had five or six brothers and one sister. I neglected to write the brothers names down because I thought I would always remember them, but the sister's name is Jerri. Could be short for Geraldine? I don't know. My father's name was Willard Ferdinand Woll. His mother's name was Anna Kohler and his father was William (McYoul or McYoulle, changed to Woul at the immigration office at the turn of the century and then later changed to:) Woll. Willard F. Woll was born in Terre Haute, PA in 1919. William Woll was a coal miner. He later tried his hand at farming in Minnesota near Bemidgi, where my father said that he and his brother piled that little stone dam at the headwaters of the Mississippi. Failing to provide for his growing family by farming, they moved back to PA where William went back to mining. He was involved in a cave-in and died a year later from his injuries. My father said he and his brothers used to skate all day long on the connecting lakes in MN. After his brothers tried to teach him how to swim by throwing him over a bridge into a river, my father ran away from home and was about 14 years old at the time. Anna Kohler Woll lived with a number of other men. One was a very large man with very red hair. The last time she was seen by my father was about 50 years ago in Billings, MT. She would have been in her early 60's or so, and was very heavy-set at the time. If any of this sounds familiar, please contact me at my e-mail address: prestons@teleport.com. I was born in 1948 and have never met any of my father's family. My father never talked about his family, except on one occasion shortly before his death. He told me it wasn't a good idea for me to search his family out because I might not like the skeletons I would find. It can't be all that bad, could it?

This site really works! Some of the information I had about my dad's family was WRONG! but I did connect with a cousin I never knew about who filled me in with a lot of missing pieces. Now I'm looking for information about Ferdinand Woll, married to Mary Suella Moyer, children William b.1895, Ferdinand b. 1903, Eleanor b. 1905, Irvin b. 1901, Richard b. 1911, Charles b. 1898 and Katie, possibly born prior to 1895.
