Right after the Civil War, Caroline (Franke) Mueller gave birth to a son, Gottfried Adolph, on April 7, 1866 in Uniontown, Missouri. The father was Christoph Mueller.
Twenty-two years later, Adolph married Martha Koenig at Salem Lutheran Church in Farrar, Missouri. The marriage license is shown above.
Two items of note:
- Adolph’s grandfather, Gottfried Mueller, was married twice. His first wife was Kunegunda Harz. Another Kunegunda.
- Today, as we write this blog post, our local Lutheran school, United in Christ Lutheran School in Frohna, has a Mrs. Koenig (who lives in Farrar) teaching a class in which one of the students is named Mueller and also comes from this Mueller clan.
