Johann Carl Müller or John Charles Mueller is my paternal great-grandfather. The fifth of eight children born to Johann Heinrich Müller and Susanna Gertrude Wenzel, I believe he was the first of their children to immigrate to the United States.
The home of my genealogy research. It's all about sharing the story and the work. If you're related to Johann Karl Müller, Matthew Kreisle, Carl Louis Diefenbach, George Walter Singleback, or other people in my family tree, this is one place to learn what I know about them.
Why do I do this?
Why do I put the time and effort and money into discovering who the people in my past are?
Why do I care about finding people who aren’t directly related to me?
That question hit me the other day as I was sifting through a frustratingly confusing search for my son’s great-grandfather. Why is this so important to me? I think it comes down to three things: story, mysteries, and duty.
This is a summary of the very confusing information I have about Michael Singleback. I believe he is the maternal great-grandfather of my ex-wife.
George Walter Singleback, Sr. is the maternal grandfather of Rebecca Fulton, my ex-wife. I don’t have much information about either side of Rebecca’s family; I seem to have the most about George Sr. This is a summary of what I know and can document, but should not be taken as a definitive compilation.
Carl Joseph Diefenbach is my wife’s paternal great-grandfather. While I do know who Carl’s parents are, he’s the ancestor I know the most about in the Diefenbach line. This is a summary of what I know and can document, but should not be taken as a definitive compilation.
