About Jakob Bühler
Nördlingen Bühler, Jakob 29.7.90 Nördlingen 11.7.16 6/Jäg.R.3 Gftr. 634
Killed in WWI
All of his siblings felt Jakob was the most wonderful person of all the siblings. He was a really great person. Everyone loved him. Unfortunately by the time I got into genealogy, no one who knew Jakob was still alive. But I heard from those who had heard about Jakob that he was a really good, caring person. Jakob wanted to go to the U.S. to live, but his mother begged him not to go. Later when WW1 came and Jakob was killed, his mother blamed herself. My great grandmother, Bertha Adler Buehler blamed herself for the rest of her life. In the 1920s two of her sons, Max and Gus, told their mother they'd like to move to the U.S. Although she did not want them to go, she felt she didn't dare stop them, after what happened to Jakob. As fate would have it, both men, who came to America separately,and went into separate businesses, became very successful. They became so successful they were able to sponsor all of their family members to come to the U.S. to escape the Nazis. Perhaps this gives a reason that Jakob was killed in WW1. His death led to the saving of the rest of the family from the Nazis.
