Birth: Dec. 22, 1865, Lithuania
Death: Oct. 23, 1927
Schuylkill County
Pennsylvania, USA

Changed his name from Neimonas to Neiman.

He was born Wilhelm Neimann, and the name was changed to William Neiman.

He was naturalized at Pottsville Co. Seat Court House on 10/3/1905, Schuykill Co., Renn Certificate #2033.

He arrived in the USA at age 21 in 1888. He lived in Seltzer City, PA and later moved to Pottsville, PA in 1919. Had lived in Shenanoah also.

Son of Ferdinand Neimonas who was born in Prussia, Germany, and Agusta Meyer who was born abt. 1835 also in Prussia, Germany.

Lithuania Russia on the boarder of Russia on the Neiman River (which is 500 miles long near the Baltic Hwy.

He was a Miner for the Pine Hill Colliery, Dodson Cone Comp. He died of Black Lung. Newspaper obit says Pheumonia.

1920 Census: Wilhelm is abt. 54 (here conflicting info: Is birthdate then 1866?,
Immigrated in 1892??, nauralized in 1898??
He is a coal miner. Children listed are correct.
Living at 518 1/2 East Arch St. Pottsville City, PA.

Burial was on Oct. 27, 1927 at Mt. Peace Cemetery, Minersville, Schuylkill, PA.

Newspaper article said he died at age 62 and lived at 516 Carbon Street, Pottsville, PA. He died on Sunday evening at 11:30 PM following an illness of a few days. Member of Trinity Lutheran Church and belonged to the Odd Fellow's Lodge and something else that I can't read. Here it says he was born and raised in Germany, coming to this country at the age of 21. He was a miner at Pine Hill Colliery. His death was unexpected. He had worked until Thursday when he was taken seriously ill and never rallied.
A member of the Trinity Lutheran Church and a fraternally a member of the I.O.U.T. and the German Benficiary Union.
It lists his children and he has 13 grandchildren. and a sister Augusta (wife of C. Belms) of Michigan

So, if he died in Oct. of 1927 and was the age of 62, then he would of been 63 in Dec. of that same year. Therefore his birthdate is 1865.
