Robert Seal: It appears based on the records I've translated for you that the Scholl family traveled in a very middle-class/bourgeois crowd with most of their associates being citizens and masters of their crafts.
Scholl is the nickname of a farmer and literally means a piece of earth.

1 German and Dutch: nickname for a lumpish person or a farmer, from Middle High German, Middle Dutch scholle ‘clod of earth’.
2 Dutch and North German: from Middle Dutch scholle, schulle ‘flounder’, ‘plaice’, hence a metonymic occupational name for a fisherman or a fish seller, or a nickname for someone thought to resemble a flouder.
3 German (Schöll): variant of Schell 
Graben means a portion of the earth's crust, bounded on at least two sides by faults, that has dropped downward in relation to adjacent portions.
Liebe Gruesse = Love greetings
