I have recently found a page out of my German Family Bible that has Gottfried Lange, born 1819 or 1809 in Erfurt, Prussia.
It seem that he ame to the US and then married Magdalen Lipps 9-29-1842 in Richmond, VA Their children were Willom, born 12-08-1843, Caroline, born 07-27-1845, Martin Lange, born 08-03-1847, Gottfried,Jr., born 07-25-1849, Henry,brn 10-29-1851 (died 1852) & Jacob,born 01-08-1854. I am not sure if they re connected somehow but maybe.

Greetings! My father was Ferdinand Lange, born and raised in Sebewaing, Michigan. My great great Grandfather was John Lange, whom had three children.

If any of this is applicable to you, I would greatly appreciate hearing from you.

There was a Ferdinand (1) Lange in my line also but he lived in Taylor (Wayne County) Michigan and only had one son - also named Ferdinand. Ferdinand (1)'s father was Gottfried who also lived in Taylor after immigrating in the 1870's.

Don't think there's a connection.

Surnames: Lange Schroeder Brosch Wehrmeister
I'm very new to genealogical research, but I believe this is my great-great-great grandfather and his family.

According to my records (which, again, are a beginner's):

Gottfried Lange Sr was the father of Gottfried Lange Jr (born in Germany around 1850, died in 1911, maybe married Caroline Schroeder).

Gottfried Lange Jr was the father of William F. Lange (born 28 March 1884 in Taylor, MI; was christened 14 May 1885 in Taylor; died in 1950).

William F. Lange married Emma Brosch, and they were the parents of my paternal grandfather, Walter Carl Lange (born 05 March 1908 in Detroit, MI; died 05 January 1963 in Taylor, MI; is buried in Glen Eden Cemetery in Livonia, MI).

Walter Carl Lange married Hazel Genevieve Wehrmeister (born 04 October 1909 in Detroit, MI; died 15 October 1968 in Taylor, MI; is buried in Glen Eden Cemetery in Livonia, MI).

Walter Carl Lange and Hazel Genevieve Wehrmeister were the parents of my father, Gary Hal Lange.

I'm very interested in corresponding with anyone who might have additional or conflicting information on this and other related lines.
