My name is Lorrie Ann Elizabeth Erdman (nee Rutkowski). Since approximately 1991 I have been researching the Erdman family of Baltimore. This is the same family that Erdman Avenue is named in Baltimore City. Ironically, I am new to Find a Grave, but the very first immigrant of this family, Peter G. (Gottlieb) Erdman has eluded me all this time. I could not verify his date of death or find where he was buried. We found his name in this database, making me a believer. And even more amazing, he and his wife are in a church cemetery very near my father-in-law's home. I am sorry to say that my in-laws are deceased, but I'm sure they are dancing in heaven that we've finally found them! Erdman is my married name and sadly, I am divorced, but the Erdman family of Baltimore still fascinates me and I continue to work on the family genealogy. I am the mother of three wonderful children and hopefully will be able to compile an accurate family tree for them in the future.
