I'm looking for information on the following surnames: Wente, Pohlman, and Nichter. I know that they are all from Germany, but that's all I know. Thanks!

Am descendant of Frans Ludwig (Bruns)Pohlman 1800-1879 and resided in New Bremen, Ohio. Descendants moved to Barton County, Kansas and LeSuere, Minnesota. Would love to share Pohlman info.

My great grandfather was John C.(Christian?) Pohlman, was born in Goesweinstein, Bairn, Germany, but his wife was born in Schleswig-Holstein, which leads me to believe that he probably lived there. He became a United States Citizen in 1884 in Elizabeth, NJ. He had a brother Fred, but I don't have any other information. Do you think they could be connected?

I am interested in information on the family of Fredrick (Franz) Ludwig Bruns Pohlman. I have a Fredericka Christina Pohlman married H A Steinecker in New Knoxville Ohio in 1853. She was born about 1832. This Frederick Pohlman is the only family in the area at the time that could be her parents but I cannot prove a connection. I have found information on the younger Pohlman children of this family...two of whom...William and Margaret Dorothy married into my May family. I would love to share any info on these folks.

Thanks Teresa
