Kuhlman Dates on Tombstone = 01-12-1827 11-24-1917 Biography by Harry H.Wagner John D. Kuhlman was born at Oldenburg, Germany on January 12, 1827. He married Catherine Stover in Germany and they emigrated to the USA in 1871. They crossed the ocean on the ship "Rhein" and landed in New York on April 15, 1871. A 6 year old girl named Anna traveled with them and it would appear that she was their daughter. However, this is the only reference to this child that could be found. Three 16 year old youths, from the same village, also appear to have travelled with the Kuhlmans. Their names are; Marie Stoever, Gesine Moennich and Henry Memderloh. John D. and Catherine were the parents of a son, John D. G., born on July 7 1877 in Burt County, Nebraska. It appears that John D. and Catherine were divorced shortly after John H. was born, but documentation has not been found. A Catharine Margrethe Kuhlman died on Mar. 19, 1893 and is buried at St. Paul's Cemetery north of Hooper, NE. I believe that she was John D.'s first wife, but the this has not been verified. John D. married Anna Maria Stover(widow of Henry Stover) on July 9, 1879 at St. John's Lutheran church north of Hooper, NE. Their license was issued in Burt County. John D. and Anna did not have any children, but Anna brought 4 children to the marriage. They are John Henry, John Bernhardt, Kate and Mattie. John D. and Anna lived on a farm in Burt County and later at Hooper, NE and Uehling, NE. John D. died on Nov. 24, 1917 and is buried at St. Paul's Cemetery in Burt County, Nebraska. John D.
