Philipina Phoebe Bossardt was born January 23, 1743/44 in Birlenbach, Bas Rhin, France, another source says she was born in Germany.
Phoebe and Casper were married in 1755 in Mooresville, Carbon County, Pa. Another source says they were married December 14, 1763. Casper Nulf (Nolf) Sr. 1742-1837 was the son of Laurentius Nulf and Anna Maria Werner.

Phoebe and Casper went to Luzerne County about 1795 and then went to the area that later became Clarion County before settling in 1808 on Mahoning Creek near Eddyvile, Red Bank Township, Armstrong Co. Pa.

Children of Phoebe and Casper:
John Nulf 1756- m Anna Maria
George Nulf 1759-1818 m Magdelene.
Adam Nulf 1765- m Barbara
Henry Nulf Sr. 1769-1831
Elizabeth Nulf 1770-
Casper Nulf Jr. 1771-1863 m Eve Hetrick
Abraham Nulf 1780-
Jacob Nulf 1784-
Catherine Eva Nulf 1787- m George Smith
Lawrence Nulf 1789-1870 m Mary Ann

One source says Caspar and Phoebe had 18 children, all born in Northampton County, Pa another source says they had 22 children.

Phoebe and Casper were married for more than 80 years. One source says she was 92 when she died another source says she was 103, so you can see several sources give her birth differently and the number of children they had.

There are many different sites on the internet concerning this couple and many, many descendants who claim different dates and names but needless to say, everyone who is related to them claims as knowing the correct information.
