        v.    Anna Marie Gertrud Niewoehner, born October 28, 1850 in Germany; died October 19, 1851 in Germany.

Notes for Anna Marie Gertrud Niewoehner:

Notes for Louisa Niewoehner:
Louise was living in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1880 when her brother Henry Adam Niewoehner and his family came from Germany and lived there for a few years.

Louisa Niewoehner Baseman - We were unable to find the dates on Louisa but it is believed she was the oldest daughter in the family.  She was married to Frederick Baseman and lived in Ohio where she met with an accidental death while going down a trap door in the year of 1887. (Niewoehner Family Tree, 1972 -note updated birth and death dates above.)

Per info from Anke Waldmann, German archives, Maria Luise Niewoehner was born July 30, 1852.  (email June 26, 2003).  While previous family info indicated a birth in 1850, that would not be possible because her sister was born that year.

More About Louisa Niewoehner:
Burial: Fairmount Cemetery, Lick Twp., Jackson Co., Ohio

Notes for Frederick Baesman:
In the obituary of his wife Louisa (Jackson Standard, Jackson, Ohio, September 26, 1888) Fred is said to have been the foundryman at the Star Furnace for a number of years.    Star Furnace was built in 1865 on East Broadway in Jackson, Ohio and opened in 1866, making pig iron.  It had the first iron stack in Jackson Co. 

Jackson Co., Ohio Record of deaths gives Fred's death date as January 29, 1904, aged 58 yrs, 9 mo., 4 days.  His birth date is calculated from that.

1900 US Census shows Frederick Bessman (sp) living with his wife Margaret in Jackson City.  This appears to be Frederick with his second wife.  According to census info, they were married 11 years - which would have been abt. 1889, a year after Louisa's death.

Notes for Clara Niewoehner:
Clara and her husband, Herman Thuel, were born in Monkehofen, Germany and came to America with her parents, in 1882, arriving in Baltimore, Maryland.  From here they went to Cincinnati and Jackson, Ohio, where her sister, Louisa Baessman lived.  Sometime later they came to Iowa where her brother, Fred, lived. They lived on one of his farms, west of the Richfield Lutheran Church.  Herman died while here on October 11, 1892 and is buried on the Richfield Cemetery.
After his death, Clara and her four small children moved to Dawson, North Dakota in 1902 and homesteaded on a quarter section  of land, which is now the town-sight (sic) of Pettibone, North Dakota. At this time she married Henry Minneker.  There is a street named Minneker in this small town.  He also homesteaded twenty miles north of Dawson.
Before moving to the farm, Henry Minneker carried mail to the rural area as far south as Napoleon, North Dakota, a distance of twenty five miles from Dawson.  (Niewoehner Family Tree, 1972)

Germans to America, Volume 42, pg. 99 & 105. Ship Ohio from Messina, Naples, Palermo and Trieste arrived Baltimore 10 April 1882.  Passengers included Friedrich and Engel Niewoehner (Clara's parents), and Hermann Thuel, age 39; Clara, age 30; and Johann, male infant, age 6 months. (Clara was pregnant with Mary when they arrived, since she was born in December of the same year. Johann must have died as an infant, since he is not listed in the Niewoehner Family Tree, 1972)

Note:  This bio states that Clara moved to North Dakota in 1902 and then married Henry Minneker.  The family tree lists a son, Garry Minneker, born in 1898.  Was the 1902 date wrong?  Did Clara marry before moving?

Children of Johann Laumann and Maria Mehrpohl are:

Notes for Johann Heinrich Wilhelm Wefel zum Felde:
The suffix zum Felde was dropped in the church records after c. 1820, making it difficult to determine which family members belong together (Wefel zum Felde vs. Wefel zu Grambergen).  Those family members who emigrated dropped the suffix.  There is also some confusion regarding Johann Heinrich Wilhelm's name.  In the Laumann family tree he is listed as Johann Heinrich Wilhelm.  He may have been baptized Johann Wilhelm and then later was called Heinrich Wilhelm.  Per Anke Waldmann, Grambergen, Germany, February 22, 2003.

May 1882 in Schledehausen, Germany; born February 11, 1821 in Wulften, Germany.

Notes for Johann Herman Wilker:
Per Anke Waldmann, Johann Herman was from Monkehofen. She believes he may be from parish of Schledehausen, but more research is needed to find out.

Notes for Marie Elizabeth Berghegger:
From the Ortssippenbuch of Ostercappeln, Marie Elsabein Berghegger born February 5, 1758, daughter of Adam Phillip Berghegger and Anna Gertrude Pieper.  Elsabein and Elisabeth are often mixed up.  (Note, I originally had birth year of 1754 - Anke to doublecheck this.)

    27.  Anna Elisabeth Bohmann

Notes for Anna Elisabeth Bohmann:
Anke Waldmann (who provided the information on this family from her research, Feb 2, 2003) wonders if Anna Elizabeth Bohmann was a sister to Johann Adam Bohmann.  If so, Anna Elizabeth Niemann and her second husband would have been cousins.  One indication that this could be true is that one godmother of Ahnna Elisabeth Niemann was Anna Angela Borgstette, who could be a sister to Catharine Gertrud Bohmann nee Borgstette.
   
Children of Johann Niemann and Anna Bohmann are:
        i.    Hermann Henrich Niemann, born September 07, 1783.

    31.  Anne Marie Gerding, born August 27, 1752 in Germany.  She was the daughter of 62. Johann Everhard Gerding and 63. Anna Catarina Kasting.

        v.    Gerhard Heinrich Mehrpohl, born April 27, 1783; married Catharina Maria Pante Abt. 1815; born February 25, 1783.

Notes for Gerhard Heinrich Mehrpohl:
Per info from Anke Waldmann, 2/16/2003, Gerhard Mehrpohl and Catharina Pante are called Niemann (from Wulften, not Grambergen).  Their son Gerhard Wilhelm Niemann married Katharine Elisabeth Laumann and is shown in the Laumann family tree. 

What we know is as follows:  Gerhard Wellmar Gerding, born 1755 was called Colon Niemann at the time of his first marriage in 1790 to Catharine Marie Thiemann.  This would suggest that he was married previously to a woman who had inherited the Niemann farm in Wulften or that Catharina was a widowed Niemann.  When he married Catharina Maria Pante, he was still Colon Niemann and so his children would have also been called Niemann.  It appears that there were no surviving children of the first marriage because when he died, his widow remarried and her second husband was also called Niemann because the heir of the farm wasn't of age.  This is what led to Gerhard Wilhelm Mehrpohl getting the name Niemann.

Notes for Gerhard Wellmar Gerding:
At the time of his first marriage in 1790, Gerhard is called Colon Niemann.  It is unknown at this time if he was married previously to a woman who inherited the Niemann farm or if his first wife was a widowed Niemann.  His children with his second wife are called Niemann. For a son of this marriage to inherit the Niemann farm, there must have been no surviving children from the first marriage.  When Gerhard died, his widow remarried and her second husband was called Niemann as well.  Thas is how Gerhard Heinrich Mehrpohl got the name Niemann.    Per Anke Waldmann, Feb 17, 2003.

Notes for Joes Gerhard Knost:
Joes took the name of Niemann when he married, because his wife had the farm, and names went with the farm.  After the death of his first wife, he was the owner of the Niemann farm until his son reached at least the age of 25 (depending on kwhen his son married, for normally the son got the farm when he married).  As owner of the farm, his name remained Niemann even after the death of his first wife, and so his daughter with his second wife was also named Niemann.
