I am Henning Wittboldt-Mueller in Verden, Lower Saxony in Germany, and I am looking for descendants of Johann Heinrich Wittbold, born 21st of Oct. 1934 in Klein Heidorn, Wunstorf, Lower Saxony. He emigrated to the US in 1853 / 1858 and perhaps he is identical with Henry Wittbold (+1913) in Comfort, Kendall County, Texas? His sister Charlotte Wittbold emigrated in 1858. Now I try to find descendants of Henry Wittbold, Texas, to proof, if he is really Johann Heinrich Wittbold, grandson of my 5x-grand-greatfather Johann Hinrich Christoph Wittbold in Poggenhagen (+1808).
Please can you help me?

Look at the links of the children and if you are lucky you will find an obituary which would often mention surviving relatives.
Good luck and greetings from Texas,
