Bio and Links
Bio Photo I began researching ancestry in 2007. My specialty is original research in German Lutheran pioneer families in Allen County, Ind. Originally from Fort Wayne, Ind., I now live in St. Louis, Mo. My family names from Allen County Ind., Northern Ohio and beyond include: Koenig, Kammeier, Hagerman, Rodenbeck, Arnos, Allshouse, Hammell, Buehrer, Gasche, Pelton, Snow, Hopkins (Mayflower), Bearman, Gick,Dauer.

I've also explored my husband's pedigree from Iowa to various locations back East including: Morrison, Austin, Forbes, Barker, Landreth, Good, Maxwell, Adams, Wiser, Babcock, Rigby, Miles, Niehaus, and Dayton.

Pansies for those who are closely related to me or are in my direct line of descent. Forget-Me-Nots are for those in my tree, but not in my direct line.

RE: Heinrich Behrmann

Thanks for your prompt reply. First, my email is I'd appreciate being able to view your genealogy.

Like you, I also thought that the Passenger List of the O Thijen, when it is magnified, shows an arrival date of June 28, 1856 rather than 23 June 1854, the date assigns to it, although it is quite difficult to decipher the handwriting, particularly passenger names.

My line (on my mother's side) is:
Heinrich "Henry" Behrmann (Bearman), Louis Behrman, Mae Behrman Pepler, Bonnie Pepler Krueckeberg, Kurt Krueckeberg (me).

It is interesting how the spelling of Behrmann -- and even the spelling of some first names -- changed over the years. The headstone shows a spelling of "Justena Bearman". Her first name is spelled Justina in the 1870 census.

Heinrich and Justena's son Louis, my gg grandfather, stuck with the spelling of Behrman, the double n being truncated to a single n.

Hopkins (Mayflower)
Hi Jenny,

Constance was my 9th gr aunt. I am descended through her 1/2 sister Damaris Hopkins who was married to Jacob Cooke son of Franscis Cooke and Hester (Mayhew)Mayhieu. This is on dad's side. Also descended through other passengers.
I have been working on mom's side primarily for 2 years so everything on dad's side is from my aunt.
