I am now just starting on the geneology:
I believe I am related to the Johan (John) Paulin and Magdalena
Their son John (born 1867) is my great grandfather.
My grandfather was Frank Paulin John's son.
I am trying to piece this all together and I must say is challenging with all the Johans, different birth dates and such. I have around 1825-1827 for Johan: I came across an 1880 census that listed john at age 55 which should place him around 1825. Magdalena was 40 at that time...trying to figure out if Magdalena met Johan (john) here and married here?) She was a Grieveldinger I believe and her parents came from Prussia I believe?
Not sure if any of you are on here any longer.
