I am looking for information on the family of Joseph Hammes (my grgrandfather) who was born in 1847, Prussia, immigrated 1854. In his obituary it says he came to MI for Sheboygan. At the time (1916) he still had a brother living in Sheboygan but I don't know the name. He was also survived by 2 sisters -again no names given.
One family story is that he had a brother named Clemence, Clement, Clemens who was a farmer in Sheboygan area.
He had sons named Anton, Joseph, Peter, Philip, Andrew and Clement. All born in MI. Philip moved to Kenosha WI 1920s. Any information on that family would also be greatly appreciated.
