Kolb Family Genealogy

KOLB ORIGINS

The Kolb family was living in the village of Riedseltz in the province of Bas Rhin in the Alsace-Lorraine region of France for at least a hundred years prior to their journey to the United States in 1846.

Riedseltz has a present-day population of about 1,100. The village is located in the department of Bas-Rhin and its canton is Wissembourg.

During the 30 Years War (1618-1648), both the village and the church were constantly threatened and pillaged. By 1755 the church was very damaged. At that point, the church was destroyed and a new church was constructed and blessed in 1760. The cross also dates to this time. The altars were dedicated in 1761 -- the high altar to St. Jacques le Majeur and the lateral altars to St. Sebastien and Our Lady of Pains. An organ was installed in 1762, which was later replaced in 1870.

The village was predominately Catholic. A breakdown of the religious composition in 1807: Catholic: 93%, Anabaptist: 3%, Jewish: 3%, Lutheran: less than 1% and Calvinist: less than 1%. Some additional photos of the village are online.

Not much is known about the Kolb family origins. Religiously, the family was Roman Catholic. The family likely spoke German, but French was used to cite the records in Riedseltz. Thus, it is common for the name Peter Kolb to appear as Pierre Kolb in the records. There is an oral history in my family that the Kolb family in France is somehow related to the German-born Revolutionary War General Johann de Kalb (Baron de Kalb), who lived from 1721 to 1780.

Much of the village of Riedseltz was made up of Kolb family members, back to at least 1750. Kolbs still "rule" the town; the current mayor is a Kolb.

The surname Kolb is from Middle High German kolbe in various meanings. There is record of a house named 'zum Kolben' in Strasbourg back to 1356. There is also record of a Diether Kolbelin living in Strasbourg in 1309. These appear to be the most logical explanations of the Kolb descendancy in northern France, as Strasbourg is the nearest location of the historical Kolbs. Another possibility, of course, is that the Kolb family migrated from somewhere in Germany prior to 1750. This explanation would justify the rumored explanation of the relationship between the Riedseltz Kolb family and the U.S. Civil War General Johann de Kalb (who was born in Germany).

The surname Lux has three possible meanings: 1) German/Dutch patronymic from a vernacular form of Lucas; 2) a variant of Luchs, a nickname for someone with keen sight from Middle High German luhs or "lynx"; or 3) French: habitational name from places so named in the Cote-d'Or, Haute-Garonne, and Saone-et-Loire. Etymology of the surname Braa/Brah/Braah is not currently known. The surname Buckenmeyer can be broken down to two parts. "Bucken" is from the German buchen, a habitational name from Buchen, a place east of Hamburg in Odenwald district, so named with Middle High German buoche, meaning 'beech tree' or 'beech wood'. "Meyer" is from the Middle High German meier, a status name for a steward, bailiff, overseer, tenant farmer, or village headman.

RIEDSELTZ, FRANCE

In 1591, Riedseltz had 405 residents. In 1605, it had 465. In 1715, it had 470. In 1792, it had 1,013. In 1851, it had 1,503. In 1936, it had 966. In 1995, it had 1,060 residents.

During the 30 Years War (1618-1648), both the village and the church were constantly threatened and pillaged. In 1755, the church was damaged. The church was demolished and a new church was constructed and blessed in 1760. The cross also dates to this time. The altars were dedicated in 1761 -- the high altar to St. Jacques le Majeur; the lateral altars to St. Sebastien and Our Lady of Pains. An organ was installed in 1762, and was later replaced in 1870.

FAMILY LINES AND EMIGRATION

The beginning of the Kolb line is Pierre (Peter) Kolb, born in 1748, who married Catherine Lux. The Kolb family mostly farmed land on the outskirts of the village of Riedseltz.

Pierre and Catherine Kolb had a son, Pierre, who married Margaretha Braa. Pierre and Margaretha had a son, Pierre, who married Theresia Buckenmeyer.

The Kolb emigrant ancestors are Peter and Therese (Buckenmeyer) Kolb, who settled in Wyoming County, New York in 1846. Their reasons for emigration are unknown. The emigration record of the Kolb family appears as follows. The family traveled from LeHavre in France to the port of New York in June/July, 1846 and arrived Aug. 1, 1846 on the ship Francis Depeau. The surname Kolb was listed as Koll and Kolp. Peter Kolb was listed as a farmer.

SHELDON, NEW YORK

Sheldon is a town in Wyoming County, New York. The population was 2,409 in 2010. The Town of Sheldon was founded in 1808. Wyoming County was created in 1841, shortly before the Kolb family moved there. Wyoming County is in the western part of New York State, east of Buffalo and slightly west of due south of Rochester. The county is in the Holland Purchase Region.

The county is largely rural, dotted with small towns. Even the county seat, Warsaw is quite small. Much of the area is wooded, used for timber. Some that are predominantly maple are tapped each spring for the production of maple syrup. Agriculture is mostly small family dairy farms, or hobby farms for people who work in Buffalo or Batavia. Apple orchards were once a major agricultural endeavor, but only a few are left. The area is well known for outdoor sports like fishing and hunting.

The Biehn, Buckenmeyer, Heintz, Hibsch (Huebsch), Kibler (Kuebler), Stephan, and other Riedseltz families all settled in Sheldon Township, Wyoming County. The Kolb family also came to Sheldon, in 1846, with Jacob Buckenmeyer and his wife. It is unclear how long the Kolb family stayed in New York or why they left. It is likely the family was long gone by 1860.

An 1850 U.S. Census for Sheldon, Wyoming County, New York, lists the family:

KOLP Peter 38 m farmer France
KOLP Persis 37 f France
KOLP Jacob 11 m France
KOLP Peter 8 m France
KOLP Persis 6 f France
KOLP Joseph 4 m NY
KOLP Catherine 1 f NY

The family resided in house #289 in Sheldon. It is unclear why both Theresa the elder and Theresa the child were listed as "Persis", a Greek name. Lorenz Kolb does not appear in the census listing. Later records list him. It appears to be a mistake that he was not accounted for. The Kolbs were original members of St. Cecilia's Church in Sheldon. They joined in 1847 and were assigned the number 70.

By 1860, the Kolb family had moved. Living in house #289 in Sheldon is John and Janette Romater, ages 24 and 23, farming.

TRAVELING THROUGH AMERICA

In the 1855 Wisconsin census, a Theresa Kolb appears as living in Milwaukee's 2nd Ward. Therefore we can conclude that between 1850 and 1855, Peter Kolb (born in 1813), farmer of Riedseltz, passed away.

In the 1860 Census of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the Kolbs appear as Theresa, Peter, Laurent, and Catherine. The listing is as follows:

Street number: 1848, ward 9, Milwaukee (street name not provided)
Value of Real Estate: $100
Theresia Kolb (also listed as Koll), age 41, wed, born in France
Peter Kolb, age 16, laborer, born in France
Joseph Kolb, age 12, in school, born in Wisconsin
Lorenz Kolb, age 8, in school, born in Wisconsin
Catharina Kolb, age 7, in school, born in Wisconsin

(source: Year: 1860; Census Place: Milwaukee Ward 9, Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Roll: M653_1423; Page: 824; Image: 427.)

Neither Jacob Kolb, Theresia Kolb (the daughter), or the elder Peter Kolb appear in the listing. This time Lorenz appears, even though he was not in the 1850 census. Jacob Kolb may have been living on his own at this point. It appears likely that Theresa Kolb and the elder Peter Kolb passed away, although it cannot be proven.

GREAT-GREAT-GRANDPA IN THE CIVIL WAR

Peter and Theresa Kolb's second son, Peter (born 1841), is my great-great-grandfather. He served in the Civil War in the 22nd Kentucky volunteer infantry (Company K) and was discharged in 1863.

Portrait of Peter Kolb (born 1841) taken between 1880 and 1890.

A detailed account of his Civil War experience can be found here.

PETER KOLB'S BROTHERS

An 1870 U.S. Census record lists Peter Kolb's brother, Jacob, age 31, as living in ward eight in Rochester, New York and married to Theresa, age 23. The surname is spelled Kolp. It appears that this Jacob Kolp is the brother of great-great-grandfather Peter Kolb due to Jacob's birth date and birth place. By trade, Jacob was a carpenter.

An 1870 U.S. Census record lists Joseph Koll, age 22, a laborer, living with the family of Henry and Ernestine Peterman in Milwaukee's second ward. This could be the brother of great-great-grandfather Peter Kolb.

LIVING IN MILWAUKEE

Great-great-grandfather Peter Kolb's first wife, Catherine (unknown maiden name), a German emigrant who he may have met in Louisville, Kentucky, died in March of 1880, leaving him with an infant son. Peter Kolb quickly (within six months) married Katharina Pecher after emigrating to Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Pecher was the cousin of Kolb's neighbors, brothers Andrew and John Schoenecker, and came to serve the Kolb family in 1878 when it was decided that more help was needed to raise the son Joseph Kolb due to Catherine's declining health. Katherine Pecher served as an equivalent to the family housekeeper.

By 1867, Peter Kolb was living at 1414 Galena Street in the 9th ward of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This is currently a vacant space. Galena extends from 12th to 25th Street. It begins around I-43 (near 12th) and ends around Tiefenthaler Park. It's in the Park View neighborhood between Highland Avenue and North Avenue and is close to downtown Milwaukee. The borders of the Milwaukee 9th ward in 1874 were W. Walnut Street to the north, N. 27th St. to the west, W. Vliet St. to the south, and N. 7th St. to the east.

Peter Kolb's last address was 500 - 16th Street in Milwaukee. This location is currently at the intersection of W. Clybourn and 16th Street, one block from 794 (East/West Freeway) and close to the Marquette University campus. No current structure appears at the location.

NEXT GENERATION: PETER KOLB'S CHILDREN

Peter and Katherine Kolb had five children: three girls and two boys. Their son, Peter Andrew Kolb, married Margaret Frank. Peter A. and Margeret Kolb had a son, Russell Kolb, my grandfather.

The Kolbs attended St. Anne's Church in Milwaukee. They lived at 41st Street between Center St. and Clarke St. in central Milwaukee. After Margaret (Frank) Kolb passed away, her husband and son moved in with Peter A. Kolb's sister Lilly Langer at 3327 N. 37th St., Milwaukee. This location is in the center of the city, east of Fond du Lac Ave. and south of Capitol Drive. The residents of that location in the 1940 census included Catherine Kolb and her daughters Anna, Katherine Kopersky, and Lilly Langer. Katherine Kopersky's daughters Rose and Dolores were also living at that location. In 1940, Peter, his second wife Theresa, and their son Russell are listed at 2930 N. 54th St., Milwaukee. This location is south of Burleigh and east of Appleton Avenue.

Grandpa Russell Kolb attended St. Anne's School for junior high and then Marquette High School. He went on to Marquette University for a degree in business and then Marquette University School of Law. My grandparents resided around 33rd and Locust up until the early 1950s, and then moved to the western suburbs. They attended St. Anne's Church and then St. Joseph's Church.

The family continued its residency in Milwaukee for generations to come. Photos of the family are available OnLine.

NOTABLE RELATIVE

Ed Don George represented the U.S. in freestyle wrestling at the 1928 Olympics in Amsterdam and placed 4th in his weight class (+87 kg.). Ed Don George and I have the same great-great-great-great-great-grandparents, and he is therefore my sixth cousin, once removed -- and my mom's sixth cousin.

Quick and powerful, he took on the name "Ed Don George" and began his professional career shortly after returning from the Olympics. He captured the NWA world heavyweight title on December 10, 1930, from Gus Sonnenberg. Double-crossed by Ed "Strangler" Lewis in Los Angeles on April 13, 1931, George dropped the title to the Strangler, but promoter Paul Bowser maneuvered it back to George, who held it for nearly four years, finally losing it to Danno O'Mahony on June 30, 1935. George remained one of the top box office draws of the 1930s, and on April 5, 1937, defeated Al Perreira in Paris to capture the European version of the world title.

He also went on to win the World Heavyweight title defeating Henri Deglane on February 9, 1933 and again won it by defeating Steve Casey on April 18, 1939. Ed Don's signature moves were the airplane spin, grinding headlock, seated armbar, and hammerlock. He had feuds with wrestlers Harry Kent, Jope Savoldi, Mike Romano, and Vic Christy.

In the March 29, 1933 edition of the New York American newspaper, there was a picture of Ed Don George with a woman, Anne Boland, who he saved from a "Boston masher." George "used a punch to fell the brute."

George was born in North Java, New York. He wrestled for both St. Bonaventure University and for the University of Michigan. During the years 1926-1929, Ed Don George attended the University of Michigan, concentrating in engineering. He graduated from St. Bonaventure University in 1929.

In March 1942 he joined the U.S. Navy. There he taught hand-to-hand combat to naval air cadets. In December 1945 he left the navy with the rank of Commander. During the late 1940s through the 1950s he promoted numerous wrestling matches in the United States. In the mid 1950s he found himself promoting wrestling at the casinos in Havana, Cuba until Fidel Castro came to power.

In 1949, Ed Don George bought a 375-acre parcel just east of North Java, New York where Camp O'Ryan was situated. He leased this land for 25 years to the federal government, which built, in conjunction with New York State, a New York National Guard training site.

Ed Don George died in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida on September 18, 1985 and his body buried in the village of North Java, New York. He was inducted into the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Hall of Fame in 1996. In 2006 he was inducted into the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame.

Notes on Peter and Katherine Kolb:
.............Pierre Kolb's occupation was a cultivator in Riedseltz. In 1781, shortly before he passed away, he was in a dispute with his sons and a man from Germany, according to "Inventaire-sommaire des archives departementales de Saone-Et-Loire" by L. Michon, a compilation of French civil records. Pierre and his sons pressed charges against the man, called Jean-Michel, from Bundenthal, Germany. The man, who was an oil manufacturer, was sued for taking colza oil from the Kolb family. Colza was used as a light source in medieval Europe.
.............Katherine Kolb's death record is a civil record written in Old Germanic script. She died the 20th day of Pluvius, 1794. Witnesses were Jacob Lux and Michael Waltz.

Notes on Peter and Theresa Kolb:
.............Pierre Kolb, born in Riedseltz, was a cultivator by occupation. His birth record in a civil record and is written in French. The witnesses to his birth were his uncle, Peter Schmitt (age 22, laborer), and Joseph Bohn (age 40, laborer), whose relationship with the family is unknown at present.
.............The marriage record of Peter Kolb is a civil record and was written in French. The marriage took place on June 13, 1838 in Riedseltz. Witnesses to the marriage were Peter Schmitt (age 46, cultivator, uncle of Peter, husband of Regina Louisa Braa), George Kolb (age 55, uncle of Peter Kolb, husband of Margaretha Heintz), Jacob Buckenmeyer (age 38, cultivator, brother of Theresa, husband of Mary Huebsch), and Jacob Huebsch (age 38, "beau frere d'espouse"/brother-in-law of Theresa and husband of Elisabetha Buckenmeyer).
.............The Kolb family emigrated to New York in 1846 and settled in Sheldon, Wyoming County, New York. Jacob and Maria Eva (Huebsch) Buckenmeyer emigrated with the Kolb family to New York. The Kolb family were original members of the Saint Cecilia's Catholic Church in Sheldon, where their children were baptized. It appears he passed away between the 1850 census and the 1855 Wisconsin census, where his wife appears.

Notes on Peter Kolb:
.............Peter Kolb's birth record is a civil record and it is in French. The witnesses at his birth were Jacob (Jacques) Grimm (he was 40 years old and was a sharpentier/carpenter) and Paul (Peter) Kahn (he was 70 years old and was a commeseat). He was baptised in February, 1841 in Riedseltz. He, his parents (Peter and Theresa Kolb), his siblings, and the Buckenmeyer family emigrated to the United States in 1846. Emigration Records: Records of the Catholic Church in Riedseltz, Wiessembourg Canton, Bas-Rhin, Alsace, France, 1830-1846 (publication code 523.1) from the Ohio Genealogical Society Report, vol. 37:2 (Summer 1997), p. 83, by Robert E. Bettac contains the only listing of the immigration that I have been able to locate.
.............They settled in Sheldon, Wyoming County, New York. Wyoming County was a common place for the Riedseltz families to emigrate to, as the Stephan and Huebsch families also resided in Sheldon, New York. They attended St. Cecelia's Roman Catholic Church in Sheldon until moving away. After the 1850 Census, the next information we have on Peter Kolb is his Civil War information which lapses 11 years into the future.
.............On Oct. 16 1861, Peter was enlisted in the 22nd Regiment, of the Kentucky infantry, in Louisville, Jefferson Co., Kentucky. He was mistakenly enlisted as Peter Koll, a clear misspelling of the surname. He was mustered in on January 10, 1862 in Paintsville, Kentucky for a period of three years. He was a private and a volunteer in the infantry. His first pay check in the regiment was for $13.00 and was given to him for the one month period of October 11, 1861 to November 11, 1861. On July 11, 1863, he became ill with dysentary. He was discharged on a Surgeon's Certificate of Disability on July 24, 1864 at Morganza, Louisiana. He was admitted to the Marine USA General Hospital in New Orleans on September 2, 1863, and left the hospital on October 6, 1863. Additional Civil War data on Peter Kolb is available OnLine.
.............Peter Kolb shows up in the 1866 and 1867 City Directory for Milwaukee, Wisconsin, but he is not listed in the 1865 directory. Due to the Civil War, there was no City Directory for 1864. Sometime between 1864, when Kolb was mustered out of the 22nd Kentucky Infantry Regiment, and 1866, he settled in Milwaukee. The value of his home in 1870 was, according to Census data, $800. The directories are not entirely accurate, so it's possible he did arrive before 1865 despite that the City Directory does not list him in 1865. Between 1864 and 1870 he married Catherine (a native of Bavaria with an unknown maiden surname). Peter was a cooper by trade; he made/repaired barrels and casks. Catherine Kolb (Peter's first wife) was born on June 3, 1847 and died on March 21, 1880 at 1414 Galena Street in Milwaukee's 9th ward in a property that was said to be worth approximately $800 by 1880 standards.
.............Before her death, Peter and Catherine are had one son, Joseph Kolb, whose birthdate is unknown. Joseph died on July 27, 1886, as a child of at least six. He is buried at Calvary Cemetery in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in the same general location as his mother and father (section A, block 3, lot 75).
.............On October 5, 1880, Peter married Katharina Pecher, a native of Neudek (Lesik/Muehlberg) in Bohemia (now Czech Republic), who had emigrated in 1878 and was working as a housekeeper. The marriage was arranged. The 1870 Milwaukee City Directory lists Peter Kolb as residing at 1414 Galena Street, Milwaukee; his occupation is listed as a cooper and his employer is listed as Joseph Porth/Porthe. The 1890 Milwaukee City Directory lists Peter Kolb as a cooper living at 1414 Galena Street, Milwaukee. Peter Kolb was naturalized on February 11, 1874. The naturalization record lists his birthdate incorrectly as 1843, but states (correctly) that he entered the U.S. in July 1846. His naturalization witnesses/sponsors were M. Jensch and Andrew Croll (Milwaukee County Records, petition 1079, volume 2, page 360).
.............Peter Kolb died on April 20, 1904 of phthisis, a wasting away of the body that affects the lungs and causes progressive enfeeblement and loss of weight. More commonly, phthisis is known to be pulmonary tuberculosis and is caused by the wasting of tissues. Peter Kolb's second wife, Katharina Pecher Kolb, died on June 11, 1948 of natural at her home in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
.............Peter, Catherine (first wife), Katharina (second wife), and Joseph (son of Peter and the first Catherine) are all buried at Calvary Cemetery at block 3, section A, lot 75. Catherine's grave is extremely large, with very old, Germanic script writing on it. Next to Peter Kolb's grave is a flag, in memory of his Civil War service. The family was Roman Catholic and attended St. Joseph's Church in Milwaukee.
.............Peter Kolb was said to have been 5 feet, 9 inches tall. He had a light complexion, blue eyes, brown hair, and by occupation (in 1860s) he was a laborer; he later become a cooper. He had a brown beard. He was buried April 23, 1904 at age 63 years, 2 months, 23 days. His last address was 500 - 16th Street in Milwaukee.
