My greatgrandparents (August) emigrated to WI in 1856 - my grandparents were married there - his name was August and hers was Wilhelmina Zahn. I am interested in any Erdmanns of that line still living in WI.

Gertrude, I may not live in Dodge Co., but my some of my roots are certainly there. My ancestors (3ggps), Gottlieb Erdmann and his wife, Johanna Koepsell, immigrated from Kniephof, Naugard, Stettin, Pommern, Prussia to Town Herman, just east of Iron Ridge, WI in the 1850's. I descend from their daughter, Henrietta who married Gottlieb Henni(n)g.
Your August could be a nephew to Henrietta, but I've never checked it out. I have some early land plat maps of the area and know there were other Erdmanns in Town Herman. August may have been one of them. So, let me know if any of this sounds

Andreas Erdmann is my direct ancestor and had about 4 brothers all born in Prussia before they left. My family came to America around 1842 from Strozewo, Poznan, Prussia. I found their Christening records in Prussia church records. I am not sure where they came in to America, but they lived in Beaver Dam, WI before the Civil War. My ancestor participated in the Civil War per his wife's recollection, but I can't find his record. Later they moved to Steele and Waseca Counties in Minnesota. Most of the information I have is from a Steele County history book that was written shortly after Andreas died. Many of the families are still living in MN.

Dear Cheryl;

I did some hunting for you today and found your relative Andr Erdmann (estimated birth 1851) immigrating from Prussia when he was 33 years old. He arrived at New York June 18, 1884. He came on a ship named the Suevia with 10 other Erdmanns'. They all appear to be from the same family.
Our Erdmann family also came from Russia/Prussia and sailed around the same time. In looking at some of the Pedigree charts it's apparent that we have some distant relatives.
You mentioned that your relatives settled in the Beaver Dam, Dodge Cty. area (which is where we live). My husbands family also settled in the same area about 25 miles up the road in a little town called Watertown.
E-mail me if you would like me to send you some attachments of what I have found.

Thanks for looking, but I think you have a different Andr Erdmann. If I remember correctly, mine was born in 1832 and had already settled in MN by 1880. I have read of a large group of Erdmanns coming to America in the 1880's though. I have not yet found connection, but I am sure there is one somewhere.
From reading the Steele County resident history book written shortly after Andreas died, it says that he did go to school some, lived in Beaver Dam for an unknown amount of time, then moved to Steele County, MN. Somwhere in there he got married and served in the Civil War for a short period but was injured.
I tried to get city records from Beaver Dam but they were damaged in a flood or water mishap in the storage basement. And I haven't checked with the churches in the area yet. Do they have records back to the 1800's? I appreciate the help.
Thank you,

Are you aware of any family members named Miller who might have been related to the Erdmann family you refer to? In my data, I have a Maria Erdmann who married to Friedrich Gottlieb Miller in Hoff, Kreis Greifenberg, Pommern. This was in 1851. The marriage record indicates she was the daughter of Hans Erdmann from Triebs, Kr. Greifenberg. The reason I ask is that many of my family members (before 1885), first immigrated to the area around Watertown and Waterloo, and these families all tended to settle around relatives. I do know that Friedrich Miller and Maria Erdmann had at least two daughters, Johanne Juliane Therese Miller (b. 27 Dec 1853) and Wilhelmine Caroline Auguste Miller (b. 7 Mar 1857), both born in Hoff. Friedrich Miller was my gr-gr grandmother's oldest brother. I don't know that they ever immigrated.

In fact I have a mother-in-law that was a Miller and married Henry Erdmann. Her father was Fred A Miller DOB 1876 and her mother was Martha B Milller DOB 1877. There are siblings and I know that Freds' father immagrated from Germany around 1885.
Hope this helps.
