A brief history of Mark Carl
Nolte, My uncle Ray Colvin taught me electronic terms at age five. My Uncle was Army Air Corp Captian Ray Colvin, a Navigator
Radio-Operator on the crew of a B-24J named Tyrannisoris Rex durring World War II. Early this year 2013 my friend Dave
Wagenvoord arranged my flight in the last flying B-24J on earth. I sat in the same chair my Uncle sat in seventy years ago.
I flew from Zephyrhills to Sarasota just under 100 miles in just under an hour. I also walked the length of the plane while
in flight back to the rear gunners chair for some video shots. Those guys did amazing things to redefine bravery.

My father is Melvin Carl Nolte, 60 year Boy Scout,
Born 1934, his wife of 57 years, Mary and my two brothers Myles and Merl, made five M names as a family. He worked in Plastic
injection molding tool design for Companies, Allied/Bendix and Motorola injection molding electronics for the Apollo Missions
up-to Apollo 15 and Mars Mariner Satellites. After the Space program, he designed case moldings for Texas Instruments,
consumer products like the calculator. In 1971 he was the first generation Nolte to leave the Lutheran Church for non-denominational
worship based on Grace. Ordained by The Church of God (Cleveland, TN) in 1995. Operated KYRK 100.9 FM for three years. He
is now retired in Florida.
This is my grandfather the business man at work...nice
shoes? huh, Herman Carl Nolte, 1895-1971, owned and operated Nolte Wheel Alignment in Kansas City, Kansas, in the garage business
60 years. Love You Grandpa! First Generation Immigrant, BORN in the USA in 1895. We were too late for Slavery, and too
early for the Nazies. He was a hardworking Kansas City Businessman back when Kansas City was just a few streets. Our
family shop was off State Rd and 7th Street. Harry Truman was selling suits in a top hat and tails...the Nolte clan,
not so much...lol.
His Father, August Christian Heinrich (Emil) Nolte, 1855-1904, and his Father, Friedrich Karl Nolte, 1821-1906 and
Uncles and Cousins immigrated to the United States in 1882 aboard the S.S. ELBE North German Lloyd, Arriving at South Hampton
New York, March 27, 1882. Occupations were Ten Generations as Master Shoemakers from the towns of Aerzon and Hameln Germany.
When they arrived in the US, they found both
language and culture barriers as shoe cobblers in a territory where Germans were awkward folks in the Midwest. Emil
did not stay on the train to Iowa and first settled in Ohio. Their first Daughter Sophia died of whooping cough and they moved to
the rest of the family in West Cedar Rapids, Iowa a place called Time-check marked as a city park today. Shoe-cobbler
and Stock Cutter then bought 160 Acres in Lawton, Oklahoma. He built and repaired wagon wheels as a Wheelwright and Farmed. This picture
is my grandfathers second brother Ernst. He died young at 24 of brights desease. He was the reason my grandfather
Herman and his brother Karl started a Garage business in the first place.
Life in Aerzen Germany goes back to the true story of the Pied Piper of Hameln embellished by both the Brothers
Grimm and my more logical version of what happened to some but maybe not ALL the Children that followed the Pied
Piper. Arezen was owned by Welfendukes and mortgaged it to the Bishops of Hildeshiem, later part of a famous Hildeshiem
Feud and promptly burned to the ground several times.
Anno 1284 am

war der 26. junii
Dorch einen piper mit allerlei farve bekledet

to calvarie bi den koppen verloren
Sometime in the 13th or 14th Century, The Bishops and Dukes of Pomerania, Brandenburg, Uckermark and Prignitz
sent out glib medieval recruitment officers, offering rich rewards to those who were willing to move to the new lands.
Bishops recruited or bribed some of the young people of Hameln in only 5 miles to the northeast over a small hill
to move to and develop the central crossroad town of Aerzen. The people of Hameln knew some of their children were
only five miles away. They were so put out by the Bishops bribes they celebrated their childrens departure with adult
beverages and outlawed music in the town of Hameln sometime around 1300. The Black Death was spreading across Germany
but not much evidence in Aerzen. The cathedral of the Brothers Grimm story could have been St. Mariens.
A Tenth Barn or Tax house was built and later burned for its popularity and became part of the story.
The last time they burned the town of Aerzen was 1642 by the Weimar Cavalry. Jobst Nolte in 1642 at the
young age of 23, helped rebuild the town. He was given a lifetime pension and property to build his house, he finished in
1678. Located across from St. Mariens Lutheran Church, the Nolte house is still there now 400 years old. The
Church is 870 years now since the Pied (Bishops) Pipers gave away land to the young people of Hameln. The town was untouched
in two world wars of the last century.
More Family Name Credits , all Shoemakers
and Lutherans include: the son of Jobst Nolte, Tonnies Hinrich Nolte 1654-1714, and his son Johann Friedrich Nolte 1683-1752,
and his son Heinrich Ludwig Nolte 1712-1786, and his son Ludwig Nolte 1744-1816, and the most Famed Aerzen Fire Marshall and Tax
collector Honorable Judge Georg Heinrich Nolte 1778-1856 the first Nolte Publicly a Conservative. His son Friedrich Karl
Nolte 1821- 1906, was a US immigrant. His daughter was Sophia Nolte.
Jobst Nolte carved this message on the beam over his door. 335 years later it is still there:
Wer auf Gott vertraut, hat gut im Himmel und auf Erde errichtet. Wer auf Jesus Christus
beruht, wird im Himmel vergütet. Wir beten uns arbeiten.
Who trusts in God, has built well in heaven
and on earth. Who relies on Jesus Christ, shall be rewarded in heaven. We pray, we work.
In 1806 Anhalt-Köthen was raised to a Duchy.
With the death of Duke Henry in 1847 the Anhalt-Köthen line became extinct. During the unification of Germany in 1864-1866
Prussia incorporated several countries-members of the German Confederation: Holstein, Hanover (Aerzen), Hesse-Kassel, Nassau,
and the Free City of Frankfurt. Remaining Barons( Bernhard Von Konritz, who married Wife Martha moved to New Zealand)
Johann M. Von Konritz father of, Otto Von Konritz. Otto slipped away as Otto Von Koenneritz, to Austrailia. He was the father
of Oscar. Baron Oscar Von Koenneritz had other troubles that led him to find Sofia Nolte in America, others were found using
either a 'de' or a 'von' Koenneritz, or a Koenig, the anglicized equivalent of the name. Everybody connected to Anhalt-Köthen
left Germany after 1847 left for the US, Edwards Isles and Australia.
In the 1860s, in
Germany, winning an illegal duel forced Baron Oscar VonKoenneritz out of Germany to the US. The only known Barons (Von
Konritz Branch) of the Nolte family married 1883 to Sophia Nolte - Rothlubbers - VonKoenneritz. Sophia was the first
Nolte to immigrate December 7, 1874 in Baltimore, Maryland and move to Cedar Rapids, Iowa. She sent word back to Aerzen she
had settled in Cedar Rapids (German Immigrate area called Timecheck, Iowa) and all the family was welcome to come to
America. Her son would become a famous US General Arno VonKoenneritz...My fathers Uncle Arno stationed at Ft. Bliss Texas.
