  • ID: I004975
  • Name: George Kullman 1
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: 22 FEB 1811 in Schweinham, Germany
  • Death: 8 SEP 1877 in Somerset, Perry, Ohio
  • Note:
    KULLMAN, GEORGE, was born in Schweinham, Germany, February
    22, 1811; he died in Somerset, Ohio, September 8, 1877; his father's
    name was John; his mother's maiden name was Goodwork; he had
    five brothers, Conrad, Nicholas, Jacob, John and Joseph, supposed to
    reside in Denmark or Sweden; of the others, Jacob only came to
    America, and after service in the late Rebellion, died in Somerset. His
    only sister Mary, married to Nicholas Culp, settled in Columbus, Ohio,
    four or five years prior to the arrival of her brothers, George and Jacob,
    in 1840. The same ship which brought George and his brother, also
    brought Henry Culp, Joseph Art, Mary Nagle and a niece of George,
    since married to Joseph Art. In 1840, George married the above named
    Mary Nagle, journeying on horseback from Marion, Ohio, to Tiffin, to
    find a priest. The happy twain remained in Marion, Ohio, until after
    the birth of their first-born, Nicholas, christened in Tiffin, forty miles
    distant, in 1842, and whose death occurred in Somerset, in 1845. Here,
    a stranger in a strange land, with limited capital, it required all the
    solid virtues of economy, caution and perseverance, for which his
    countrymen are proverbial, to establish his business as a butcher. To the
    faithful aid of his wife, to her firm resolution to succeed, to her sound
    counsel and unflagging industry---joined to his own calm purpose
    and steadfast efforts by day and by night, in storm or sunshine---are to
    be attributed that success which always crowns the union of will, mind
    and muscle. Thirty-seven years after his arrival in Somerset, he
    departed this life, in faithful hope of the life everlasting; his books and
    papers show that he gave away, in uncollectable claims, more than
    ten thousand dollars, and these claims stand to the credit of the kind
    heart and confiding humanity of George Kullman and his dutiful wife,
    Mary Ann Nagle, to whom were spared three sons: John, the eldest,
    united in marriage to Lizzie Elder, a daughter of John Elder; he farms
    and assists in butchering. Lewis, the second, now living, is the cashier
    and salesman of the firm and remains single. Samuel, the youngest,
    united in marriage to Amanda Burns; he farms and assists also in
    butchering. The business is not changed by the father's death, but by
    the affectionate influence of the mother and the good understanding of
    the brothers, maintains its prosperity and vindicates the wisdom of the
    father's last will and testament.
