Genealogy:Was John - Martins father??
Posted by: bruce Jones on July 19 2012 12:21
-The Controversy is that John Bollenbacher was Martins father and Martin had his last name changed to Williams --

--Malena aka Magdolina aka Maggabana.--

--- Magdolina could have known John before they came to the states. Story was she worked as a maid for the Bollenbachers in Germany and had an affair with John. They had to leave Germany because of the affair.--- BUT

--John Bollenbacher came to the states in 1866 when he was 28 years old. Magdolina was 11 years younger making her 17--

--Martin was born in Sweden five years after John came to the states in 1871,--

--Magdolina Immigrated in 1873 when she was 24 and Martin was 2 and in Sweden, --

--Magdolina (27) and John Bollenbacher (38) married in 1876 when Martin was 5 years old and still in Sweden--

--Magdolina and John Bollenbacher were married 4 years when Martin came to the States.--

--Martin Immigrated in 1880 to Boston when he was 9 years old.---
