Walling - Wahling family in Iowa
Posted by: Ruth King Gernhart (ID *****6760) Date: August 18, 2002 at 10:54:58
  of 1441

Herman Bernard (Wahling)Walling was born on April 11, 1814 and died on July 15, 1847. He married Mary Ann Funk on July 15, 1837. She was born on December 20, 1818 and died on January 19, 1894 in Dubuque, Dubuque County, Iowa.

They had three children before Herman died and Mary Ann remarried William Becker.

Benjamin Bernard Walling was born on August 24, 1837 and died on November 16, 1924 in Durango, Dubuque County, Iowa and is buried in the Sherrill Presbyterian Cemetery, Sherrill, Dubuque County, Iowa. He was married to Caroline Ellen Schutte on February 18, 1862 in Dubuque, Dubuque County, Iowa. She was born on October 18, 1843 and died on
February 05, 1902 in Durango, Dubuque County, Iowa and is buried in the Sherrill Presbyterian Cemetery, Sherrill, Dubuque County, Iowa. They had ten children that were born in Durango, Dubuque County, Iowa.

Herman Henry Walling was born April 11, 1842 and died on July 29, 1891 in St. Joseph's Hospital, Sioux City, Woodbury County, Iowa and is buried in Mount St. Joseph Cemetery in Anthon, Woodbury County, Iowa. He married Mariah Helena (Maria Helen) Hiller on November 07, 1865 in Dubuque, Dubuque County, Iowa. She was born on January 06, 1849 in Dubuque, Dubuque County, Iowa and died on January 05, 1925 in Anthon, Woodbury County, Iowa and is buried in Mount St. Joseph Cemetery in Anthon, Woodbury County, Iowa. They had ten children all born in Iowa (Dubuque and Woodbury Counties).

Henry Herman Wahling died on December 18, 1898 in Dubuque, Dubuque County, Iowa and is buried at the Mount Cavalry Catholic Cemetery, Dubuque, Dubuque County, Iowa. He was married to Elizabeth Darris. She died on July 1922 in Dubuque, Dubuque County, Iowa and was buried on July 17, 1922 at Mount Cavalry Catholic Cemetery, Dubuque, Dubuque County, Iowa. They had a son, Henry who as born on October 06, 1863. I am not sure if there were other children.

I am looking for any other people who might be connected to this branch. I am not sure where Herman Bernard Walling was born or where he might be buried. I have been told that he came to the United States in 1844 but that his wife and children didn't get to Iowa until about 1849 after his death. I am also unsure why they have two different spellings of the last name in the same family.

I would love to hear from anyone with any information or ideas. Thank you for your time.
