Johann Hermann Koppelman
Birth: Dec. 29, 1811, Germany
Death: Feb. 25, 1877
Baltimore County
Maryland, USA

KOPPELMAN--On Sunday evening, February 25, JOHN H. KOPPELMAN, in the 65th year of his age. His funeral will take place from his late residence, Gardenville, Baltimore county, on this (Wednesday) afternoon, at 2 o'clock. His friends of those of the family are invited to attend.

Baltimore SUN 28 February 1877

Born Johann Hermann Koppelmann in Badbergen, in what is now the state of Niedersachsen, John Herman Koppelmann immigrated to Baltimore in the early 1830s. By the time of his death, he had amassed 60 acres of good farm land in Gardenville, just north of the Herring Run, where he and his two sons, John Gerhardt/George and John Henry, grew "stoop crops" for market in the city.

Originally buried in the family farm's cemetery on Franklin (now Frankford) Ave., his remains and those of his wife, son John Henry and wife Anna Katherine Weber Koppelman and their two daughters, Elizabeth and Macy, and several infants, were disinterred and moved to Baltimore Cemetery when the land was sold in 1920. Research, including his obituary, will, and church funeral records, has determined that the date on the gravesone is in error, and that he actually died in 1877.
