Johann Adolph George Gerdemann was born in Prussia in 1818, one of 11 children of J. Heinrich and Katherine Elizabeth Gerdemann. His older brothers, Heinrich Wilhelm Gerdemann and Johann Heinrich Gerdemann first came to America in 1833 and settled in St. Charles, MO where they wrote back to the family and were joined my Johann A.G. Gerdemann and his siblings, as well as their Mother in 1838. Their father died 15 May 1833. Johann married Mary Nierhoff July 1st 1850.

His siblings are:

Anna Katherine Gerdemann
Eva Elisabeth Gerdemann Bever
Johann Frederich Gerdemann
Heinrich Wilhelm Gerdemann
Johann Heinrich Gerdemann
Anna Maria Gerdemann
Hermann Heinrich Gerdemann
Wilhelmina Heinrich Gerdemann
Frederick Wilhelm Gerdemann

John Adolph Gerdemann married Mary Nierhoff circa 1851. From census entries, children of this couple were Caroline, George, William, Henry, John, Mina, Adelia, Josephine, Elise, Lillee, and Edward. By 1900, a widower, he reported immigration in 1838. Mr. Gerdeman's given name appears also as George on various entries; also, surname spelling varies. Because he was present in the 1850 Henry "William" Gerdemann District 78, St Charles, MO, household, a reasonable conclusion is that he was brother to Henry W. Gerdemann (1811-1890).

Burial was in Gerdeman-Nierhoff Burying Ground, St. Charles County, Missouri: Located in St Charles County, MO, Calloway TWP,Foristell Rd between Morrison & Borgelt Rd
