Abstract: Born in Germany, Peter Poh (1814-1885) immigrated to the U.S. in the mid-19th century, eventually settling in the Territory of Wisconsin. He was elected County Commissioner of Manitowoc in 1848 and later worked for the Manitowoc school district. John G. Engel (1845-1926) was a German-born farmer whose great grandson, Russell Bernard Glen Engel, married Poh’s great granddaughter, Helen Marie Poh, in 1947. Their son, John C. Engel, established the Engel-Poh Family Newsletter.
