    • This is my theory on how events unfolded for Karl (Charles Walmer), Joseph (Jose' Walmer), and Franz (John Muller): Karl and Franz decided to leave Germany, and went to the port in Antwerp either together or separately. They each boarded a different ship. Karl the Rhynland and Franz the Friesland. Karl changed his name to Charles and ended up in New York or New Jersey. Franz eventually moved on to Oakland and changed his name to John Muller. It is unknown if they had other siblings besides Joseph. There is no proof that the persons on the ship manifests are these brothers. In 1907, Joseph boarded a ship for Buenos Aires, as he was only about 8 years old when his brothers left Germany. Joseph changed his name to Jose' and stayed in Buenos Aires. All evidence points to Charles' children being unaware of Franz. However, Rose must have known about him as witnessed by the letter (EXHIBIT 2, 2a) written to her by Jose' after Charles' death in 1936. It is unknown if she ever had any contact with Franz.
      In about 1918, Kunigunda became ill with tuberculosis. Charles moved the entire family (except Bert and Bill who were employed as domestics at the time, and Joe, who was a small child) to Denver. Kunigunda's health did not improve, so they moved on to Arizona. They are all recorded on the census in June of 1920 in Los Angeles, including Joe. It is unknown if they had actually moved there, or were all just there to attend the upcoming wedding of Erich Platz and Rose Walmer. At some point between June and December of 1920, Charles and Kunigunda (and presumably the younger children) went back to Arizona. Kunigunda died there in January of 1921. Joe went back to New Jersey and was adopted by the Schroeders.
