This is the main bakery located in the center of town across from the Church. The reason my sister and I were interested in taking this picture is because our 3rd great grandmother Christina Scholl married Johann Martin Köhler. Could there be a connection?

|Christina Scholl and her son Philipp may well have bought a loaf of bread from the köhler Landbäckerei, Or maybe Johann Martin Köhler, who was a farmer, sold his wheat to the family owned Landbäkerei.|
September 12 Visited Karlsruhe. In the 1800's Karlsruhe was the seat of government in the nobility area of Baden. When Philipp Scholl lived there he was subject to Leopold, Grand Duke of Baden. In 1848 the middle class, like Philipp Scholl, wanted both freedom and less taxes that were enjoyed in France and the United States. Freedom was considered a liberal idea. Leopold was interested in liberal ideas, and granted concessions to his subjects in 1848. He declined to oppose the revolution which broke down some barriers and forced him to flee from the country. The revolution failed, Philip Scholl emigrated, and Leopold later returned and died in Karlsruhe. Germany didn't become a unified state until 1871.
|Leopold Grand Duke of Baden. When Philipp Scholl applied for US citizenship|
he had to renounce allegiance to this man and swear allegiance to the USA.
