My DAHLEMS were mennonites that migrated from Germany to Illinois (mostly a little town called Summerfield, but some to the Chicago area) in the 1840's and 1850's. They came from a town south of Munich called Eichstock in Germany. The Mennonite library (in Kansas)has been helpful to me, and has the info on these families. I do recognize the names you have listed here, and although a quick search of my computer records turned up nothing, I know it is with the information I have yet to type in.

We are probably related. My g-grandfather emigrated from Niederwurzbach, Germany in the late 1880s. The charts that I have show that some of the relatives went to Illinois and some to Nebraska. My family went to Nebraska and eventually to Oklahoma where I grew up.

Have you seen the site below? It is about a Dahlem girl who grew up in Illinois.

I am desc. from John Weber and Maria Ruth Weber. They were mennonites too. Maria Ruth is buried at Summerfield, St. Claire Co., ILL.
They had many children. Two of them being:
William Daniel who married twice. Once to Mary Leuke or Wendling of which I am desc.

Susanna Weber another child of Johann and Maria married Gerhard Dahlem. They lived in Aux Sable, Ill in 1860. Census very hard to read.
Gerhard is the son of John and Kate (Ruth) Dahlem. Gerhard b.July 16, 1832 in Bavaria.
My Webers are from Eichstock. I think Dahlems are too. The dahlems and Webers came to America in 1852 settling in Lee Co. Iowa. In 1855 Gerhard moved to Aux Sable Twp, Grundy Co. Ill. Susanna and Gerhard married in 1854. Susanna died aug. 13, 1862. Leaving on child Jacob J. Susanna is buried at the Willard Grove Cemetery as well as Gerhard and his second wife and many other Dahlems. Gerhards second wife Mary Stauffer. Dau. of Jacob and Catherine Stauffer. Gerhard and Mary had 4 children: Adam, Daniel, Katie, and Mary.
Gerhard died March 25, 1884. He is a civil war veteran of the 4th Ill. Cavalry.
I have been to the Willard Grove cemetery and the Summerfield cemetery. I live in Madison, WI. I would like to see what information you have.

somewhere I have a copy of a book of the the records (from the mennonite church, I think)from the town of Eischtock, they are in OLD german and not too easy to read, but you can still make out the births, marriages, and deaths.. The Webbers and the Dahlems are both listed there. Also I have some records from the Mennonite archives in Kansas, AND somewhere I have a large family tree that has Dahlem and Webber branches on it... I haven't been able to find that for a while. I have also been to the cemetery in Summerfield, my Great-grandparents are burried there

Do you have the name of Wolf(f) in your records associated with the Dahlems?
