Family History

The Wuelzer family arrived in the United States on 31 Jan 1855 from Steinsfurt, Sinsheim, Baden, Germany (Southeast of Heidelberg). They sailed from Rotterdam to New York aboard the Arnold Boninger. On board were Ludwig (51) & Barbara (38) Wülzer and four of their six children - Adam (16), Heinrich (11), Catherina (9), and Frederika (7). The two oldest boys, Wilhelm (23) & Jacob (21) were already in the United States. The family settled in Cincinnati, Ohio. The family name was changed to from Wülzer to Wuelzer in the 1860s. Both spellings appear on many legal documents until about 1900. Misspellings are frequent. Ludwig & Barbara attended the Catholic Church in Steinsfurt Parish, Waibstadt, Reihen, Baden-Württemberg where the birth of Wilhelm, Jacob & Adam are recorded. Information on the Wuelzer Family Tree was gathered from Census Records, War & Pension Records, Ship Logs, Marriage Certificates, Birth and Death Records, Cemetery Records, LDS Records, Wills and family members. Additional information is appreciated.
