247Ha!! No one ever said research doesn't pay off.....
- Nov 26, 2006"Austesford" according to William Henry Buckholz's Pension record
photo-copies is actually "Hustisford" there in Dodge County,
Wisconsin. He married to Augustine/Augusta/ Henriette Marie Koehler
on August 25, 1848 according to his own written statements.
For the life of me, as I don't speak but very little German nowadays
and have lost it over the many years, couldn't figure out what
geographical location Austesford would be within Dodge County,
Looking into Section 1, of T10 N, 16E 80 Acres that Ferdinand Koehler
bought in February 10, 1848 I finally found a Platt Map of the county
which would pretty much tell me a few answers. I cross referenced it
with some other maps and ran across a map of the smaller townships
within Dodge County and noticed next to Herman and Hubbard Twp's that
there is this Hustisford. Boy, you all oughtta seen the look come
across my face at 3 a.m. when I added it all up in my mind !!!
So, now the question is whether or not there is anything in the land
records that would clue me on where Buchholz was living, where he
bought the land, when he sold the land, and the like. Cause in 1850
and 1855 he was in Greenville, Brown/Outagamie County, Wisconsin with
Ferdinand Kailer, Koehler his father in law.......
Anyway, I hope that other folks on this message board are having some
tidbits of new enlightening info come to them as well.
