Bodling-Rummel-Schulz-Zoch-Stolle-Giebler-Schoppa Families

Updated February 13, 2008

I am a decendent of the following families:
The John Traugott Bodling and Eva Maria Giebler Family
Settled in Lee County, Texas then later moved to Wilbarger County, Texas. They were both born in Germany and married in Burton, Texas.

The William L Rummel and Lena Pauline Stolle Family
Settled in Wilbarger County, Texas from Taylor, Texas. Also the Paul Rudolph Stolle, Sr/Wilaminna Lehrman/Barbetta Rinderknecht Bachman Family, --- what we have come to call the Stolle-Bachman Family.

The Paul Oswald Schulz and Ella Emelia Zoch Family came from Fayette County, Texas and settled in Wilbarger County, Texas.

The Michael Schoppa and Maria Zoch Family lived in Lee County and Fayette County, Texas. Some decendants moved to Wilbarger County, Texas.

I also have information on the Chorpening Family that decended from Hendrick Courpenning, John George Chorpening, and Michael Chorpening.

If you are a member of these families or you have information on them, please contact me by email, snailmail, or phone. Any information would be appreciated and, of course, any information that I have I am willing to share. I have over 2,000 names in my Family Tree Maker program interlocking these families together. I am adding new data everyday because I am still imputing information that I have gathered over a ten year period.
