Since I had researched much on this Wolter family, and I felt a little confused about what information I had, I thought it was time to do a re-start on the research.

So, much research has now been done on the John and Martha Wolter family.

We now know that there is some relationship between Martha Bringe Wolter and the Frederick Bringe family that resided in Toledo, OH.  It could be that Martha was the sister Frederick.

Where do we go from here?


We can continue to look for records from Germany – FamilySearch is always updating their database with information and images – see Wolter Family 17 and 18.

We can continue to try to translate the German records that have been found – see Wolter Family 16.

We can continue to try to determine whether or not Charlotte Wolter did in fact marry John Wagener in 1913 – see Wolter Family 5.


Do any of you have ideas as to “where to go from here”?  Please share your thoughts!
