Carl Brumm (the first child of two named Carl in the family) was born May 31, 1852 in Württemberg, and christened at the Lutheran church in the town of Sternenfels on June 13, 1852. He was the youngest son in the family of Carl "Charles" Brumm and Eva Juliana (Osswald) Brumm.
He was listed in the Iowa state census of 1856 (the family surname was spelled "Broom"). At that point, the family was living in Burlington, Iowa. Carl died before the 1860 census.
Another child born in the family after his death was also named Carl.
His burial location is unknown, though likely in Des Moines County, Iowa.
