Surname Saturday- Roling

Happy Saturday everyone-- It's the Weekend!

Today’s surname biography is Roling. My 6th great grandmother- Martha Roling- married Gerhard Jeckering.

Martha Roling
b. 06 Jan 1740            Engden, Germany
d. 06 Feb 1783                        Drievorden, Germany

Her parents were Heinrich Roling (1703- ?) and Maria Silies (1715-?). I’ve found as far back as Martha’s great grandfather- Johann Roling (b. 1625 in Drievorden, Germany).

There are several spelling variations for this name---Rolland, Roland, Rollan, Rolan, Rolend, Rollend, Rollen, Rauland, Raulend, Rollain, Raullen, Raullan, Raulan, Rolands, Rollands and many more.

There were several Roling individuals who immigrated to America.

There are many more with various name spellings, but I only provided the names with the same spelling as my ancestor (to keep it short).

This one is interesting because there are 505 total matches of individuals with the last name Roling buried—at first glance, it looks like a mixture of Texas, Missouri, Iowa, Ohio, Georgia, California, and Alabama.
