Greetings. I am searching for my g.g.grandparents, Jacob WELLER & Elizabeth WOLFE of Germany (Black Forest area)--I'm told.Rumors have it that Jacob was a carpenter. They had 5 children: George,Lutter/Luther, Phillip,Jacob and Katherine. My, Jacob,b. Apr.1830, left Germany for America at the age of 14 to avoid Kaiser'sArmy.Eventually, he settled in Ohio Co.,Ky. where he became a prosperous farmer,married Matilda A.HOOVER and raised a large family. I have been unable to locate any of the relatives he left behind and never saw again. I look forward to hearing from anyone who might be able to help.
