Our Bohl Family Genealogy

We have been collecting information on the origins of our Bohl family line over a number of years.  We know that three Bohl brothers, Ferdinand G.Bohl, Carl Friedrich Bohl and Johann Christoph Bohl, from Schoenehr, Kreis Laurenburg, Pommern, Prussia separately made their way to Gasconade County Missouri in the 1850s.  Johann Christoph Bohl, our direct Bohl ancestor, homesteaded a farm near Hermann, Missouri in a village named Stolpe. 

To the best of our knowledge, the information in the following descendant chart is accurate and it shows that George Bohl, likely born in Kreis Laurenburg, Hinterpommern, Prussia, is our direct Bohl ancestor.  We would love to compare notes and hopefully gain more data from anyone doing research on this family line.  We are especially interested in learning about the family lines of the siblings of the three brothers that that stayed in Pommern - see the detailed tree.  We expect that their descendants were likely expelled to East or West Germany at the end of WWII.
