Notes
a. Note:   d Franco-German border. She married Jacob Neutzling (probably in Germany) sometime before Jacob immigrated to America (settling in Ohio) sometime between 1845 and 1852. NOTE: Jacob's older brother, Peter, immigrated in 1847; if so, it's likely that Jacob immigrated then too. The family home in the early 1800s was in Sponheim, Germany. Jacob was a merchant. They may have had their first and second children there. Jacob and Catherine had the following children (based on 1870 census): Jacob Jr. 24 1846 Ohio Elisabeth 21 1849 Prussia Heinrich 18 1852 Ohio John 16 1854 Ohio Joseph 14 1856 Ohio Valantin 11 1859 Minnesota Catharina 2 1868 Minnesota Anna 10/12 1869 Minnesota The family moved to Stearns County in Minnesota between 1856 and 1859, before Valantin was born. Here is a rough timeline for the Jacob and Catharina Neutzling family: 1815 Jacob Neutzling born in Prussia 1816 Catharina Klein born in Prussia 1846 Jacob and Catharina married before 1846, in Prussia. 1846 Neutzling family emigrates from Prussia to Ohio before 1846 (or, before 1852) 1859 Neutzlings moved to Minnesota (Stearns Co.) before 1859 (based on Valentins birth.) 1880 Jacob Sr. and Elizabeth die before 1880 census..?

Note:   Catherine Klein was born in 1816, probably somewhere along the conteste
b. Note:   Jacob Neutzling Sr. and Catherine Klein Jacob Neutzling Sr. was born about 1815 in Coblenz, Germany (Prussia.) His parents were Johann Peter Neutzling (b. 17 Oct 1781 in Sponheim, Germany; d. 22 July 1854 in Sponheim, Germany) and Susanna Jenemann (b. 10 September, 1782 in Bochenau, Germany; d. 22 February, 1850 in Sponheim, Germany.) Jacob had five brothers (Johann, Henrich, Peter, Albert Adam, and Joseph) and two sisters (Catherine and Anna Maria.) The Neutzling family home in the early 1800s was in Sponheim, Germany. Jacob Sr. became a merchant, and he married Catherine Klein there about 1840. The family emigrated to America from Sponheim Germany about 1843.** They settled first in Pomeroy Ohio. NOTE: Some records indicate that Jacob Sr's older brother, Peter Neutzling (b. 1810 in Prussia), also immigrated in 1847. Jacob (Sr.) and Catherine had the following children (all born in Ohio, based on 1850 census) living at home in Pomeroy in 1850: --- Louiza Neutzling, 7, born in Ohio --- Jacob Neutzling [Jr], 5, born in Ohio --- Catharine Neutzling, 4, born in Ohio --- Philomena Neutzling, 2, born in Ohio --- Mary (?) Neutzling, 2 mo., born in Ohio NOTE: We know from the 1870 Stearns Co., Minnesota census records that Jacob Jr. and his wife Elizabeth had moved from Ohio to Minnesota between 1856 and 1859. It's likely that Jacob Sr moved there then too; we know that by 1870 Jacob Sr. had moved his remaining family to Stearns Co., MN. Jacob Sr's (extended) family is shown in the 1870 (Stearns Co., MN) census as follows: --- Jacob, 55, born in Prussia --- Catharina, 54, born in Prussia --- Jacob Jr., 24, born in Ohio --- Elisabeth, 21, born in Prussia (wife of Jacob, Jr.) --- Heinrich, 18, born in Ohio --- John, 16, born in Ohio --- Joseph, 14, born in Ohio (the last Neutzling child born in Ohio) --- Valentin, 2, born in Minnesota (dau of Jacob Jr and Elisabeth) --- Anna (Alicia), 10mo., born in Minnesota (dau of Jacob Jr and Elisabeth) Local land records show that the Neutzlings purchased 40 acres of farm land near St. Cloud, Minnesota, in 1866, and another 147 acres of farm land near St. Cloud in 1870. In 1875, Jacob Sr's family included (apparently) two extended family members (Helena, born in Prussia, and Alicia, born in Prussia) --- Jacob Neutzling [Sr], 60, born in Prussia --- Catharina, 59, born in Prussia --- Henry(Heinrich?), 23, born in Ohio --- John, 21, born in Ohio --- Joseph, 18, born in Ohio --- Valentin, 16, born in Ohio --- Helena, 14, born in Prussia --- Alicia (?), 18, born in Iowa Jacob Neutzling Sr. died about 1875, in Minnesota.

The period of 1793 - 1817 in Germany was a time of almost uninterrupted wars, the so-called Napoleonic wars. Armies tramped through the towns of southern and western Germany. First the French, to be followed in the next year by the Austrians. Then came the Prussians, followed by the Cossacks from Russia. The soldiers camped in private homes and farms. The owners had to provide them with food and service their horses. They were forced to make contributions of money and their young men (30,000 of them were forced by their king to join Napoleon's army in his war against Russia. Only a small number of these conscripts returned home alive. The others starved and froze to death in Russia.) In 1806, the king of Wuerttemberg, Frederic I, abolished all the established rights of the ordinary citizens and nobility, and declared emigration to be illegal. Even the desire to emigrate was considered an act against the king for the next decade. Emigration was nil during the next ten years. Then in 1816, two key things happened. Frederic I reinstituted the peoples' rights, just as excessive rains caused a massive crop failure throughout the country. Starvation, ruin, and misery abounded. There was a surge of German emigration, and for years thereafter, German immigrants in America wrote to their neighbors back home, telling of the freedoms and available land, encouraging others to follow them to America.
