Julius Bockenkamp
Birth: 1822, Germany
Death: Nov. 20, 1894
Missouri, USA

Julius Böckenkamp came to the United States aboard the Bark Suwa. This ship normally departed from the port of Bremerhaven and arrived at the port of Galveston, Texas. Settling in New Braunfels, Comal County, Texas, his nationalization paperwork, submitted November 18, 1851, states he is a 28 year old from Germany. He was granted citizenship in the Spring of 1854. He married Wilhelmina Donerberg on December 26, 1852. While living in Texas, they had the following children: Helene Oberle, Herman Bockenkamp, Wilhelmina (Minnie) Eckert, Bertha Hambel, and Richard Bockenkamp. There is an indication that he served with Company A, 31st Brigade in Texas. Possibly just after the war, the family moved to Sainte Genevieve County in Missouri. They had three more children: Emma Burleigh, Caroline and Gustav Bockenkamp.

Nov 1894: The Bockenkamp and Uding families experienced a sad loss through the deaths of Julius Bockenkamp and August Uding both of this city. They were both old men the former being the father of Mr. F. Bockenkamp of Ste. Genevieve County and the latter his father-in-law. Grandpa Bockenkamp died Saturday night and Grandpa Uding Sunday night at 6 P.M. Both lived in the the third ward within a short distance of each other. Miss Minnie Bockenkamp and Miss Betty Uding of St. Louis were both in attendance at the funeral which took place yesterday, the remains of both being taken to the old family burying ground in Ste. Genevieve County about 16 miles from this city. (The DeSoto Press)
