Welcome to the
Schuler Family Website!

This website is devoted to the research and study of the families that make up the Schuler Family of Ohio.  Much research has already gone forth, and much still remains to be done.  This site is a work in progress, and those with common ancestry are welcome to provide comments and additional data.

George Friedrich Schuler was the primary immigrant.  He was born in Gemmingen, Kreis Heilbronn, Württemburg, Germany in 1810.  At the age of 22, he immigrated to the United States, entering this country through the port of Philadelphia.  His first residence was in New York City, where he married Eva Stoll.  They then moved Rome, New York were his first child, Rosina Margaret Schuler was born.  Six more children were born, all in Crawford County Ohio.

The Schuler's first came to Ohio in 1838, from Württemburg, Germany through New York City and Rome, New York.  Travel was difficult, both overland and on rivers and canals.

Frederick, as he was known was a respected member of the Bucyrus, Ohio community throughout the 19th century.  He was a shoemaker by trade, and resided in a large house built by his son-in-law Christopher Walther (husband of Rosina Margaret) on Sandusky Street.

Frederick and Eva had a total of seven children:  Rosina Margaret who married Christopher Walther; Catherine; Jacob Frederick who married Anna Barbara Greenenwalt; Elizabeth who married Frederick Feiring; John Charles who died of cholera; George Frederick who married Julia Sophia Kuhn (my line); and Sophia who married Jacob Sutz.

Frederick died on 3 February 1891 and was buried in Oakwood Cemetery.  Eva followed him in death on 20 March 1893 and was buried next to her husband.
