Although Fehrmann is not an uncommon name, I think these Fehrmanns came from Kreis Greifenhagen, Province of Pomerania. There were Fehrmann Families there from at least 1833, at Klein Zarnow and at Lindow. It is possible that the immigrant ancestor, Christian Friedrich Fehrmann b. 17 FEb 1810 came from Schultzendorf, Kreis Greifenhagen. He married Friederike Achtmann in Germany, probably in the early 1830s. She ws born 05 Oct 1810. They arrived in NYC 06 Sep 1843 on the ship Howard from Hamburg and seem to have travelled directly to Wisconsin. It is possible that they belonged to the "Old Lutherans," who disagreed with the proposed doctrinal changes in the creation of the Prussian state church. Many Old Lutherans came to Milwaukee, Ozaukee and Dodge Counties in WI. C.F. and Friederike Fehrmann appear in the Emmett Township, Dodge County records from 1850. I am trying to find the church records from the 1840's and 1850's which would show their children's births and also Friederike's death in 1866 and C.F.'s death in 1875. They had Carl Fridrich b. 1835 m. Louise Albertine Ziemann and Caroline Wilhelmine b. 1836 in Germany, Christian F. b. 1857 m. Augusta Sauk (Sauck), Johann Friedrich b. 1849?, Wilhelm b. 1850?, August Friedrich b. 1851 m. Emilie Ziemann and Franz Friedrich b. 1855. Johann and Wilhelm lived for many years with Carl and his family, and Franz lived for most of his adult life with August and his family. I don't know if any of these three boys married. Caroline was living with her parents in 1860 at age 23. She may have married in the 1870s, but I have not yet found a record. If you know more than this I would be grateful if you would reply.

There was a Mrs. Louise Fehrmann (& Chas. Fehrmann suicide) who was murdered in 1894. I've indexed articles about the incident and one about her burial in "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950) -- but there's no doubt the English language press covered the story.

I've also indexed family death notices in the German press for a Christina Fehrmann, and a Bertha Fehrmann Winkelmann.

Mr. Rebholz,
Would you be willing to send the transcription of the German newspaper for Fehrmanns in Milwaukee newspapers? Bertha Fehrmann Winkelmann is a sister to my wife's ancestor. Thank you. Scott Kraus (stkraus50@gmail.com)

Scott -- I don't own those clippings and haven't "transcribed" the over 900 rolls of microfilm I've accessed from 3 different libraries -- just indexed the location of clippings of biographical interest for family research.
As my posting indicates, there are very likely English language versions for an incident with wider interest than just the German-American community. Then there are death records, court records, coroner's records, etc. found in local archives. Family researchers use many different methods to collect records and newspaper clippings. When in doubt about resources in any city, contact a local librarian.
