Helen Fehring and Anna Fehring were sisters from Germany. When Helen died, Frank wrote over to Germany and sent for Anna, the younger sister. Frank and Anna had the following children: Anthony, Josephine, Joseph, William, Rose, Elizabeth, Marcella and Lawrence Loneman.

Frank L. Loneman was a farmer and lived about a mile northeast of Maple River, Iowa. They had a good farm as the property had many tillable acres of rich soil. There was also a creek passing through it to provide water for the livestock. The Loneman's planted crops, raised some beef cattle and also had dairy cattle. When they milked the dairy cows, they would separate the creme from the milk. This was common in many dairy operations. The sons of Frank L. and Anna, Joe and Bill, would transport the cream into Carroll to sell to the Candy Kitchen in their old Model T car. Prior to that, the family must have made the trip with a horse and wagon.

Frank's daughter Anna and her husband Joe Stangl and their children enjoyed going out to her father Frank L. Loneman's farm for a visit. During warm weather the kids had great fun fishing for bullheads in the creek running across the farm. During the winter, the big snow storms would cover the land with a thick, white, fluffy
blanket of snow. This provided a real adventure for the kids - the rolling land on the farm had some teriffic hills for high-speed sled rides! And there were a
a few snow-balls which went zinging through the air during those visits.

Frank L. Loneman, an old and highly respected farmer of this county, died at his home west of Carroll, Wednesday, March 17, aged 61 years, 11 months and 11 days. The cause of death was diabetes from which he has been suffering for several
months, but he was confined to his bed only for the last few weeks of his life.

Dear Matt,

Last evening 10/19/03 I went to "Google" and entered the name "Lonneman" and a bunch of things about the "Loneman's" in the Carroll and Breda IA came up. So I am curious about a number of things. The first I am the 7th child of Antone and Elizabeth (Wiedert) Lonneman. Antone Lonneman was the son of John Lonneman of Littel Rock IA. John Lonneman is buried in the Sibely IA catholic cemetery, on his head stone his name is spelled as follows: Lonnemann. Where or why or when did the Name "Lonnemann" change to Lonneman and Loneman?

I live in Sioux Falls SD now and I have come in contact with some "Loneman's" frfom Armour SD.

I really woudl love to have you e=mail me back and hoefully I can be made aware of my heritage.

Thank You,

Orville N. Lonneman

I haven't done much genealogy work in the last several months, so your response is giving me a chance to dust it all off and to get my thoughts going again.
Your grandfather John had 4 brothers and a sister. His brother Frank L Loneman was my great grand father. So my great great grandfather & mother were your great grandfather & mother...John Bernard & Anna Marie Loneman.
The name Loneman, Lonneman, and even Lonnemann have all been used interchangeably in obituaries, legal wills, and letters to describe the relatives of our big German family.
My great grand father, Frank L. had a brother August, who moved to Armour, South Dakota in 1899 and lived there for 24 years, raising a family before moving back to Carroll, Iowa to marry Frank's wife after he died.
Your father Antone had a brother Paul, which should be your uncle. In 1990 or 1993 I drove up to Little Rock and met with him for an afternoon. We talked as much family history as he could remember...he even had me drive him out to the old farm place!!! It was great! He and I never met before that!
I don't have much time left tonight but definitely would want to speak to you some more.
I will be in Sioux Falls for a meeting. I am driving up tomorrow (Tuesday) for a meeting that runs from 8am - 4:30pm Wednesday then heading back to Carroll.
I am staying at the Baymont Inn at 4100 South Western Avenue. I may just give you a call on Tuesday evening if I can find your number and can get away. I will bring some family history information and family tree with me just in case.

Are you still checking this site, my name is Ron Lonneman from Adrian MN. My grandparents were Antone & Elizbeth Lonneman. The Orville you replied to is my uncle, my father's name is Sylvester. I would greatly hearing about the History of the Lonneman, Loneman & Lonnemann name. I kind of have hit a dead end with my Great Grandfather John (Johan).
