Surname Saturday - PULSKAMP
More on my Pulskamp family at My Pulskamps
A biography of Herman Pulskamp is at: Herman Pulskamp. His brother George, editor of a German newspaper, the Bote was my great-grandfather. More info and some photos of the Pulskamp family are at http://www.pulskamp.org/blog/.
I received a comment with some more information: Herman Heinrich Pulskamp left the farm with his sister, Maria Elizabeth Pulskamp, and her husband, Johann Moller who took the name Pulskamp. They had a daughter, Elizabeth, who married Bernhard Brüwer. This Elizabeth died in childbirth. The baby, also named Elizabeth, died too, leaving Bernhard with the farm and the name. He married Wilhelmine Wöste and their family still owns the farm in Merzen.
