Carolina Buertel came to the U.S.A. in 1848 with her father, Adam Buertel and his new second wife, her own mother having died in Carolina's first year of life. She married an irishman by the name of Sullivan and died when my grandfather Frank Sullivan was quite young. You can read the details of her story at the given link. We know the names of Adam Buertel's grandparents, thanks to the Berg Church records, but do not have exact dates, which must go back to the middle 1700's.

You can see by the pictures above that Dennweiler/Frohnbach is one of the many lovely, peaceful villages in the Rhineland-Pfalz area of Germany.
