Wilhelmina "Minnie" Augusta Mathilda Kohls (14 Jan 1867-19 May 1953), born in Germany, married Carl "Charles" Bullert (16 Oct 1860-13 Feb 1920) in Hutchinson, MN. Minnie was a Lutheran.

Minnie's death certificate identifies her father as August Kobs [sic] and her mother's maiden name as Caroline Holtz. It states that she is buried in the Emanuel Lutheran Cemetery in Brownton, MN.

Wilhelmina Kohls Bullert and Carl "Charles" Bullert and had 10 children.

Carl "Charles" Bullert was born on 16 Oct 1860 to David Wilhelm Erdmann Bullert (31 Jan 1820–25 Feb 1887) and Rosa Seehaver Bullert (14 Sep 1824 –22 Apr 1903) in Green Isle Township, Sibley County, MN. Carl's parents, both born in Prussia, were married on 4 Sep 1843.

Carl Bullert's parents, David W. Erdmann Bullert and Rose Seehafer, had ten children.

1. Johann August Bullert (22 March 1845-4 April 1906) was born in Zempelburg, West Prussia; he married Henrietta Mueller (1846-1924), who was born in Vandesburg, West Prussia. It is thought that he went by his middle name August.

2. Amelia (Amalia, Emilia, Emily) (7 Aug 1852-14 Jun 1935) was born in Zempelburg, West Prussia. She married William Kriese.

3. Augusta Anna Bullert (27 July 1855-21 Feb 1937) was born in Zempelburg, West Prussia. She married Charles Kirschbaum on 15 Dec 1873. She married Edward Lucht on 11 Nov 1884. She is buried in the Oakwood Cemetery in Mora, Kanabec County, MN.

4. Carl "Charles" Bullert (16 Oct 1860-13 Feb 1820).

5. Emil Bullert is listed in the 1870 Census as being 14 years old, so he was probably born in 1856 in Zempelburg, West Prussia.

6. William F. Bullert was born January 20, 1863, in Green Isle Township, Sibley County, MN, and died on July 23, 1942. He married Louisa W. Meyer on February 20, 1886. He is buried in Ogema, Becker County, MN. The 1900 U.S. Federal Census lists their children as Edward, Martha, Emil (b. 1891), Albert, Bertha, Ida, Arthur, and Anna.

7. Bertha Bullert was listed in the 1870 Census as being 4 years old, so she was probably born in 1866 in Green Isle Township, Sibley, MN. A newspaper article printed in the Arlington Enterprise dated March 7, 1929, indicates that Bertha (Mrs. William Wendtland) predeceased her parents.

8. Edward Julius Bullert's tombstone gives his birth date as September 16, 1866, and his death as January 27, 1941. He was born in Green Isle Township, Sibley County, MN. He is buried in the Zion Lutheran Cemetery, Green Isle Township, Sibley County, MN. On 21 Jan 1898 in Sibley County, MN, he married Mina "Minnie" Dorothea Gennrich (early records spelled Gvenwisch) (1873-1942).

9. Heinrich "Henry" Bullert was born in Jan 8, 1869, and died June 5, 1913, in Green Isle Township, Sibley County, MN. He married Otella in about 1891. He is buried in the Zion Lutheran Cemetery (new), Green Isle Township, Sibley County, MN (Plot 1, Stone 3). The inscription on his headstone is from Psalms 16:6.

10. August Bullert is listed in the 1870 Census for the David and Rosa Bullert family as being 1 years old, so he was probably born in 1869.

Information on David W. Erdmann's father Erdmann Buller [sic] can be found in a German collection of births in Zempelburg and Vandsburg, 1750-1812, by Gunter Bleck.

Some confusion exists because two persons named Erdmann Buller are mentioned:
Erdmann Wilhelm Buller (b. 30 Sep 1802), son of Christian Buller, and
Erdmann Buller (b. 25 Nov 1770), son of Daniel Buller.

Erdmann Buller [sic] (born 25 Dec 1770) married Charlotte Hoge (1773-1807) on 10 Jul 1807 (first wife).

Children:
1. Maria (7 Sep 1794 – 26 Jan 1803) Zempelburg
2. Anna Elisabeth, born 18 Jul 1799
3. Eva Rosina, b. 12 Mar 1797
4. Johann Daniel, b. 2 Feb 1803
5. Louise, b. 6 Apr 1805

Erdman Buller [sic] (born 25 Dec 1770) married Anna Dorothea Elisabeth Kornig (1784-1849) (second wife).

Children:
1. Charlotte "Lotte" (4 Jun 1808-12 Jun 1808)
2. Gottlieb Emanuel, b. 16 Aug 1809 (married Caroline Ristau 14 Oct 1833). [On 7 Mar 1929 the Arlington Enterprise newspaper article "Bullert Families Numerous in the Arlington Community" revealed that David W. Erdmann Bullert's brother Gottlieb "located near Henderson at about the same time."]
3. Wilhelmine Elizabeth married Christoph Bork 15 Feb 1836
4. Florentine "Flora" (4 May 1813) married Gottfried Kriese 27 Dec 1836
5. David Wilhelm Erdmann (31 Jan 1820-25 Feb 1887)

David Wilhelm Erdmann Buller and his uncle Gottfried Buller changed the spelling of their last name to Bullert; that is, their names became David Wilhelm Erdmann Bullert (b. 31 Jan 1820) and Gottfried Bullert (b. 1808). At this time no reason is known for this change. The name Buller meant a writer of documents, and it is interesting that among the descendants of the Buller-Bullert family are teachers, lawyers, doctors, builders, and engineers.

An article in the Arlington Enterprise dated 7 March 1929 titled "Bullert Families Numerous in the Arlington Community" included the following: "Now, most Enterprise readers probably know several persons whose surname is Bullert. But it is equally probable that they do not know how each is related to each other or which are not related at all. In fact, in conversation with a number of residents in Arlington and the neighboring community, the writer found that most of them were hopelessly confused when it came to straightening out the Bullert relationships."

Fortunately, information on the Buller/Bullert family can be found in a German collection of births in Zempelburg and Vandsburg, 1750-1812, by Gunter Bleck. Gunter Bleck's book indicates that David W. Erdmann Bullert descended from Daniel Buller [sic] (b. 30 Aug 1761) and that Gottfried Bullert descended from Christian Buller [sic] (1773-1846).

Daniel Buller married 11/19/1752 Marianne Muller on 19 Nov 1752 and had three children: Daniel (30 Aug 1761-Apr 1767); Eva Rosina (b. 20 Jan 1765), and Erdmann (b. 25 Nov 1770).

Two of Erdmann Buller's children settled in Sibley County: Gottlieb Emanuel Bullert (b. 16 Aug 1809) and his brother David Wilhelm Erdmann Bullert (b. 31 Jan 1820).

As early settlers, Gottfried Bullert (16 May 1808–27 Oct 1885) and David W. Erdmann Bullert (31 Jan 1820–25 Feb 1887) bought land near each other in Sibley County as follows:
