My Kuhr Family



With this family, I'll get a little more into detail. I really don't know a whole lot about them but what I do know will be here. If you have any more info I can add here please don't hesitate to email me. This is a difficult family. As you can tell, the Kuhr's came from Germany, where exactly, I'm not sure. Where they arrived in the US again, not sure, what I do know is they lived in Ottenheim, Lincoln County, Kentucky....moving on to Kenton County, Kentucky.....on in to Cincinnati, Hamilton County, Ohio.

Kuhr (pronounced as Core)-the meaning:

As provided by Ancestry.com
  1. occupational name for a guard or watchman on a tower
  2. from a short form of Kunrat
