Hi, I am looking for information about the family of Christian Tiedemann and Magdalena Langemakwho moved from New Holstein in Calumet Co., just over the line to Kiel in the early 1860's.In the 1880 census, the family consisted of Christian and Magdalena and their children, Helene, Arilla, Rosaline, Christiane, Bertha, Johanna, Hermine, Hermann, and Elsie, plus Magdalena's fatherPeter Langemak.They also had boarders including Adolf Wittman, teacher, who apparently founded the village school(see www.2manitowoc.com) Anna and Jane Sueps(?) both also teachers, and John Ibeling, painter, who later owned a housewares business in the village. Christian was also a surveyor, eventually County Surveyor of Thorp in Clark, Co.
Of the children, I know that Helene married John Greve; Rosaline married someone named Anderson before marrying John Krupp, then probably died before 1906; Johanna married Caspar Krupp; Hermine (Minnie)and Bertha, I believe, never married, though I may be wrong; Hermann is probably the same Hermann Christian Tiedemann who married Laura Mead; Elsie married Herman Thompson, who I believe died in 1903, and then she married John Krupp.I know nothing at all about Arilla and Christiane, and there are many gaps overall.Any leads or connections greatly appreciated. Thanks, Regan Oakley
