KOLK(S), KOLCHS, KOLX

KOLKS (KOLCHS, KOLX) - (KOLK gt TRUESSEL), Theodore
BORN: Nov 6, 1805, Leschede (parish in Emsbueren)
DIED: Jan 12, 1867, Westphalia, MO
PARENTS: Johan Bernhard TRUESSEL gt KOLK
Elisabeth HIENERING
EMIGRATION: 1835 - arrived Baltimore Aug 6, 1835 on the ship Elise
Theod KOLK from Buhren (Emsbueren)
He was listed just after Herm BRUNS from Lohne (Schepsdorf)
According to letters and journals written by Herman Bruns sister-in-law (wife of Dr Bernard Bruns), Theodore had been working for the Bruns family in Lohne before he emigrated in 1835. From the time of his arrival in MO until Dr Bruns returned the following year with his family, Theodore helped with clearing the land and building a modest home for the Bruns family in Osage County, MO.
MARRIED: Maria Catharine KOESTERS her entry
possibly married ca 1837 by a visiting Jesuit priest before a parish was established in Westphalia, MO
Maria Catharine KOESTERS made the journey from Lohne (Schepsdorf) to MO with Dr BRUNS and his family in 1836. She was not mentioned by name, but Mrs BRUNS noted in her journal that they were bringing with them a young woman who would marry Theodore KOLKS.

Margaret 50, Prussia, Anna 18, born Prussia (wrong), Dina 16, Bernard 13, Nette 12, Marg 9, Henry 6, all born MO
SOURCES: This identification is not 100% certain but seems probable.
Theodore's year of birth was consistently given as 1805 on several censuses and on his death record. His probable place of birth was known from the passenger list of the ship Elise. There was no corresponding KOLKS birth/baptism entry found in the Emsbueren parish records but there was an entry for Theodor TRUESSEL "also known as KOLK." The Emsbueren Datenbank (online)  noted that this Theodor had emigrated to America. Also in support of this identification is the fact that Bernard RICHTERING (age 19 in 1838 but actually born in 1823) was living with Theodore and his wife in 1839. That Bernard RICHTERING had emigrated in 1838, at age 14, with a family from Schepsdorf who also settled in Westphalia, MO. Bernard's mother was Susanna Maria TRUESSEL gt KOLK, sister of Theodore born in 1805. Bernard RICHTERING was also godfather for one of Theodore's chidlren baptized in Westphalia, MO. Information about Theodore's death was found in the book Deaths Occuring in or near Westphalia, Osage County, MO by Cletus Hoer and Diane Hoer Olson. The children were from Cletus Hoer's book on baptisms in or near Westphalia.
