Magdalena Helen (Kuhn) Boll [12/23/1822-2/11/1908] married Adam Boll in Germany but the date & location are unknown. She immigrated in 1850 permanently to the US and resided until death in Cheektowaga, (Buffalo), Erie County, New York, USA and is buried in the French and German Cemetery of Mount Calvary Cemetery in Cheektowaga, NY.

Magdalena and Adam had 7 children, all born in Buffalo, NY.

After 10 years of searching I am unable to find her parents in Germany or information about their marriage.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

There is an identical record for a Magdalena Leinmert with the same mother, born on same day, slightly different named birth place but the same. It's possible one record identified her with her otherwise unnamed father's surname.

Sandhofen is today a part of Mannheim, it's very likely it was at the time of her birth still an independent village.
Great suggestions, although I am still hitting a brick wall. I'm suspecting Leinmert may be from Switzerland.

Also, my Kuhn connection to Germany is not working out either. This is one stubborn block wall.

On to Switzerland!! Thank you so much for the help.

It appears to me that your problem is a misreading or mistranscription of the birthplace. If you can find originals of the documents it might be possible to discern the real place of birth to give you a start in your search for her parents.
