Heinrich Friederich Bohling


Anna Katharina Maria Baden



Heinrich Friederich, known as Friederich was born September 22, 1851,

 in Schwalingen, Hanover, Germany. He was one of five children born to

Heinrich Christoph Bohling and Friedericka Marie Gerke.


Anna Katharina Maria Baden was born March 3, 1853,

 at Schwalingen Amt. Solten Hanover, Germany.


Friederich and Anna were married August 17, 1877,

in Neuenkirchen, Germany.


 This union was blessed with seven children.

Anna Maria (Mrs. Fred H. Oestmann), came to America

with her parents at age four, and son Friederich, known as Fred,

was two years old when they immigrated to America in 1882.

One son died in infancy ; another son, stillborn, both buried in St. Paul's Lutheran Church (Hickory Grove) cemetery, Auburn, Nebraska.

Daughters Emma (Mrs. Henry G. Oestmann);

Augusta (Mrs. Carl H. Bohling);

and Mary (Mrs. Herman C. Bohling) were all born in

Nemaha County, Nebraska.

Anna and Emma married brothers, Fred H. and Henry G. Oestmann.


When Friederich, his wife and two children arrived at the home of his brother Dietrich Bohling, here in America, they had just fifty cents left in their pockets. They lived for several months in a granary on the brothers farm. They laid a temporary floor on the rafters for additional space.


After six years, living on various farms with many hardships, they bought a farm and established a permanent home three miles north and one east of Hickory Grove Church, known as the Fred Bohling farm. Many years later they purchased 80 acres one mile west and one mile north of Hickory Grove church, where they moved and remained the rest of their married lifetime. Son Fred then moved to the home place.


After Anna Katharina died, July 23, 1930, Friederich returned to the original home place and made his home with his son Fred and wife Elizabeth (Eltiste) Bohling, who cared for him until his death, April 13, 1941. Both Friederich and Anna were active members of Saint Paul's Lutheran Church (Hickory Grove) and are buried in the church cemetery. With the exception of the two oldest children, who were baptized in Germany, they were all baptized, confirmed and married at St. Paul's (Hickory Grove), Auburn, Nebraska.
