BISA gave the birthplace of Joh Daniel KOEHNE as Bremen.
The Naturalisation papers dated 1874 said he was a native of Bremen, Hanover, and in SA twenty years.
The Hamburg passenger lists (on microfiche) name Joh Friedr Aug KOHNE, wife, and 8 y.o. son, from Bremen, on the STEINWAERDER that arrived in July 1854.

Have you done an internet search for church records in Hanover? Or, have you sourced family information from church records at the Lutheran Archives in Adelaide?


Regarding your tree, I noticed there is an error that says
Johannes H D A KOHNE
1817 - 1846
He was not even in Australia yet and no D in his name!

This is his death record
South Australian Deaths Registrations 1842 to 1915
Johann Heinrich F A KOEHNE (aka Friedrich)
Date: 1899-04-29
Age: 82y
Status: N
Relative: (not recorded)
Residence: Sandy Creek
Death Place: Parkside
District Code: Nor
Symbol: H
Book: 261
Page: 20

And his WIFE
Sophia Windhorm KOHNE (born c1811)
Date: 1889-09-10
Age: 78y
Status: M
Relative: Johann KOHNE (H)
Residence: Rosenthal (now Rosedale a town close to Sandy Creek)
Death Place: Rosenthal
District Code: Bar
Book: 180
Page: 416

The only marked grave at Rosedale is a plaque that reads
Anna Margaretha KOEHNE nee ENGELMAN
died 18 Jan 1860 aged 67years 9months
Wife of Ludwig

So it appears Ludwig KO(E)HNE and Anna Margaretha nee ENGELMAN were in the Concrodia/Rosedale/Sandy Creek area by 1860, and were the parents of Joh Hein Friedrich Aug KO(E)HNE

Ludwig and JHFA were at Lobethal by 1874 where Ludwig died.
South Australian Deaths Registrations 1842 to 1915
Surname: KOEHNE
Given Names: Ludwig
Date: 1874-06-11
Age: 83y
Status: N
Relative: (not recorded)
Residence: Lobethal
Death Place: Lobethal
District Code: Nai
Book: 58
Page: 268

Ludwig is not to be confused with a Heinrich KOEHNE who died on 10 Apr 1876 aged 60 years.
