I am not researching this family, just entering information from one of my books "Asbury Methodist Village" by Marshall Grotenhuis, 1999:
John Henry Kuhlmann "was born on May 6, 1856, in Loudoun County, Virginia. He was educated in public and private schools and at Virginia Polytechnic Institute. His later study, at Randolph=Macon College, laid the deeper foundations upon which he built his ministerial career."
"Almost coinciding with John Kuhlmann's conversion, at the age of 14, came the call to preach granted by the quarterly conference of the Hamilton Charge. He was recommended for admission on trial and in 1884 was admitted to the Baltimore Conference. Passing through the course of study in regular order, he was admitted into full connction in 1886 and ordained Deacon. Two years later, he was ordained Elder by Bishop A.W. Wilson. At least two churches in Cumberland, Maryland, are evidence of his leadership in forming new churches. Churches still standing in several other places also were erected under his leadership."
"When Mary Louise Perrie (from Prince George's, Co. MD) married Rev. Kuhlmann in 1890, she learned that he shared her dream for a Methodist home for the aged and orphans. At the time of their marriage, he was pastor of the Trinity Methodist Episcopal Church, South, in Cumberland, Maryland."
Mary Louise Kuhlmann died in 1916. I did not see a date of death for Rev. John Kuhlmann, nor any mention of children. However, this book is about their part in starting this retirement community, which is located in Gaithersburg, Maryland. We are celebrating our 80th anniversary this month. I have worked here in the evenings for 31 years.
