Surnames: LOHMANN WILKE MELZIAN BRENNEKE
I just discovered this site and don't know much about my father's side of the family. I am the daughter of Gerald Lohmann & Shirley Puskas. My father's parents were Rudolph Lohmann & Pauline Wilke. Gfather's parents were H.C. (?) Lohmann and Minnie Melzian. Gmothers were Henry Wilke & Hulga Brenneke. All in Iowa. I seem to be tied into several of you but not sure how. Mom and I are familiar with some of the other names, Hoelzen and Marquardt. I would appreciate it if you guys would help me out! Tracey

Tracy, I'm your second cousin. My grandmother Emma Lohmann Hoelzen was your grandfather Rudy's older (and full) sister. They had four older half-siblings from their father's first marriage: Lillian, Anna, Carl and Ted. They had three other full siblings besides the two of them: Carl George who died at 5 months old when my grandmother was 18 months old; Henry Arthur who died in a terrible fire in 1911 when he was 2 1/2 years old; and their other brother Walter who died in Pomona, California in 1968. Your grandfather Rudy I believe died there, too, didn't he? in 1962? I've got a mother-lode of information and documents for you. I live in Burlington, Iowa, and knew my grandmother Emma well (she died 6 months short of being 100 years old in 1995) and we were very close. E-mail me by reply but my email is changing so try shyarrow@mchsi.com if the above e-mail doesn't work. Deb

I just saw your message. I noticed Amanda Bowen has also answered your message. I've only been working on the Lohmann Family Genealogy since last June 2001. I've already met a lot of nice "cousins" over the space of this time. My father was Harry Lohmann, his father was Carl Gottlieb Frederick Christian Lohmann. His brother Carl Heinrich Frederick Lohmann was my grandfathers younger brother. I never knew any of my fathers family that well. But I have a lot of information on the families. If I can help in anyway, please don't hesitate to e-mail me. That's dottie_stokes@hotmail.com. I live in Texas right now.

Thank you all for your responses, I appreciate it! I had no idea there were so many Lohmann's about, even within my own family. Deb, thank you for the info you emailed...has been very enlightening. I sent a email to you via athome but I don't know if you got it. Will sent via mshsi. And Alvina, thanks for the offer of more info, I will be in touch with you also. And Jimmy, I will get on the mailing list. Tracey

Dottie, I was wondering if you know where your family got your name Alvina? I know that German families put alot of thought in naming their children after someone in the family or someone of meaning. The reason that I ask is because my grandfather's name was Alwin Lohmann which translates nto Alvin. I remember that your grandfather or great Grandfather was from Iowa and I know that a great deal of my Lohmann family had been in Iowa, Bremer County and nearby. Do you know where your family got your name? Mary Ann

Hi,
My mother was also an Alvina. I was named after her and my father Harry. I know of no other Alvina's in the family, in any of the branches.
Most of our family came from the Des Moines, Henry and Louisa County area. A few in Lee County. But mostly in the Southeastern corner of the state.
Are we related in some way? I do have a few Hartman's on my tree. Good Luck, and God Bless.

Thanks for your reply. If we are related it would be through the name Lohmann, not Hartman. We have been in touch before in my search for my Lohmann roots. I have been looking for info on my Great Grandfather's parents. He was John Christian Lohmann. Iowa researchers have his parents' names as Louis and Sophie, while the info that I was given by family members years ago calls them Ludwig and Louise. And another source, Louise Lohmann Piepho's obit, says their names were Christian and Louise. Most of John Christian's family was in Iowa and that is why I wonder if there is a connection to your Lohmanns. When did your Lohmanns come to America? Louise Lohmann's obit says that she came to America with her brother, Christian, and an (unnamed) Uncle.

Hi Again,
My grandfather came from Germany in Nov. 1864. The rest of his family, parents and brothers and sister came a year later.The family was from Ottenstein, Duchy Of Brunswick, Germany. My great grandfather was a Master shoemaker & had a shoe factory in Germany. They sold everything off to come to America. To many in the family had died in the little wars going on over there, and they wanted to get their children away from that.
My grandfather was Carl Gottlieb Frederick Lohmann, his father was Carl Frederick Wilhelm Ludwig lohmann, his father was Heinrich Gottlieb Christian Lohmann, and Johann Christop Lohmann. My records start with Johann, and his wife
Johanne Sabine Wilhelmina Ziegler, and only on child, Heinrich. There could have been other children. The same follows with Heinrich, his wife was Hanne Carolina Justine Wilhelmina Henza, and I have only one child Carl Frederick and his wife Dorothy Friederike Caroline Wilhelmina Reese. They had four children that came with them to America. My grandfather was already here. They had a total of 10 children. Five that died in Germany in childhood. I believe that there were more children in the previous generations but I can't find any record of them. I wish I could find more.
Just put the name Lohmann in at Google and see what you get. There are a lot of them out there. Even a branch down here in Texas, but I can't find any connections.
Well, I have to get to work. Hope we can talk later.

Thanks Dottie. Louise Lohmann was 12 years old when she came to America and she was born in 1863 so she couldn't have come with your family. I thought that there was a small chance of that but it does not pan out. Thanks for your response! Mary Ann
