    Ellen, I think I can help with two of them. Dave

    Lillian Pulskamp is Lillian Eibeck, wife of Joseph H. Pulskamp, who was son of Mary Klei and John Pulskamp, who was son of Fredericka Schaefer and John Henry Pulskamp.

    Herman Pulskamp is the son of Elizabeth Speiler and Edward Pulskamp, who was son of Herman Henry Pulskamp and Anna Mary Schaefer.

    Thanks, David. That helped me a lot. That also points to Alvina T. Pulskamp as the wife of Herman H. Pulskamp, since they both lived in Wooster. Her maiden name was Hein. So you actually solved three of these.

    Glad it helped, Ellen, and thanks for the tip on Alvina. It was too obvious for me to see! I just did a quick search and found an indexed death record indicating her name was spelled Heyne.

    Charles Pulskamp is my daughter’s grandfather and Herman I believe was his dad.

    We have a lot of Herman Pulskamps but I don’t see a Charles Pulskamp on my current family tree, unless it was his middle name. Please give us more information so we can figure out where you belong on the family tree.

    Bernard Pulskamp is the son of Bernard Pulskamp Sr.b;1875 Married to Mary Hollenberg. i remember Aunt Mary very well. She and Ben were my great aunt and uncle. Loretta pulskamp was married to Ben Jr. I have lots of info if you contact me.

    Eleanor Pulskamp was the wife of Joseph Pulskamp, Joseph Pulskamp, is Lilian Pulskamps’ son. My Maiden name is Sandra Pulskamp. Eleanor and Joseph Pulskamp were my Grandparents. Lilian Pulskamp would have been my Great Grandmother. I know very little about this side of my family. I found out about this website through my sister. We all live in the Cincinnati area.

    You must be Heidi’s sister! I have Joseph Pulskamp’s wife listed as Lois Luckey with a note that they were divorced. Is this the same person as Eleanor or was Joseph married twice? Or do I have incorrect information naming Lois? I am delighted that you and your family have found the rest of us and look forward to meeting you some day.

    For the rest of you, Heidi Pulskamp recently contacted me through Facebook. It turns out that her father’s dad died at a very young age (37) leaving a young son with no contact with the Pulskamp family. They live in the Cincinnati area and would like to connect with cousins if possible. They are descended from Henry Theodore John Pulskamp, the youngest of the three boys who were born in Germany. Sandra and Heidi’s dad is my second cousin.

    Concerning Eleanor Lois Luckey, if it is the same Luckey family that I am researching, her parents were George H Luckey & Eleanor B Surran. George Hilton Luckey was the son of Wilson S Luckey & Edna Mae Hawley of Cincinnati. And I can go further back with Edna.

    I am sorry for taking so long to respond. Obviously, I don’t check this site very often. Our Lois Luckey married Joseph John Pulskamp but I have no other information about her. Joseph John Pulskamp was born May 26, 1926 and died August 7, 1963. His parents lived in Cincinnati, Ohio and I assume his lived there also. Joseph John was my dad’s first cousin. Do you agree that your Eleanor Lois Luckey is the same person as our Lois Luckey?
