ChristainNeumann(Evangelical Lutheran): Generation I
I can trace my paternal family back to Christian Neumann, born May 1839 in the Vistula river area (Seilce or Sedlice). I would like to find out more about generation I. In 1865 Christian married a woman (last name Kalasch or Kalesch) and they moved to Heimthal Wollhynia, Ukraine. She was also born in Poland. They had six sons (not in order of birth):
i Johann Neumann b. March 08, 1865 in Ostowka, Poland; d. August 02, 1906, Kalonka, Bashkiria, Ufa, Russia.
ii Julius Neumann b. January 20, 1875; d. 1938 Siberia, Russia. (exiled to Siberia in 1938)
Julus had ten children: From first wife, Amalia Lange, Augusta Neumann, b. 1903 & Lydia Neumann, b. 1905, Zhitomir, Ukraine; d. March 1986, Oxbow, Saskatchewan, Canada as Lydia Stahl. The Stahls had three sons.
Julius Neumann married Augusta Fengler. They had eight children: Arthur Neumann, Emil Neumann, Herbert Neumann, Ewald Neumann, Sofia Neumann, Zelma Neumann, (b. February 04, 1918, Kiev region, Ukraine), Frieda Neumann & Meta Neumann.
iii Gottfried Neumann - My father told me he may have moved to Germany from Ukraine in 1906 or 1907. (Seeking information.)
iv Samuel Neumann may have emigrated to Argentina just before WWI. He had two daughters. (Seeking information.)
v Theodore Neumann also emigrated to Argentina 1906-07. (Seeking information.) Also had two daughters??
vi Gustav Neumann, b. 1889, Zhitomir, Ukraine; d. 1960, Abbotsford, BC, Canada
I know very little about generation I (except for Julius & Gustav)and would appreciate any connections you may have. My father, Emil Neumann, once met a Paul Neuman from Sarnia, Canada who told him he thought that his uncles Wilhelm & Gottlieb Neumann were sons of one of Christian Neumann's brothers.
Johann Neumann b. March 8, 1865 in Ostrowka Poland married Elizabeth Albrecht in Heimthal, Wollhynia, Zhitomir, Ukraine around 1888-89. Elizabeth Albrecht b. Vistula river area of Poland October 27, 1865; d. September 30, 1936 in Klippenfeld, Molotshna, Ukraine, USSR. Johann & Elizabeth Neumann moved to Davlakanovo - Ufa region, Russia (Ural Mountains) before the turn of the century and became a farmer. Johann died of typhoid fever after making a trip back to Ukraine in 1905. Elizabeth was left to raise the six children:
i & ii Twins- Emilie & Ottilie born August 18, 1890 in Heimthal Wollhynia, Ukraine; Ottilia d. December 06, 1974, Frunse Kyrgysran, USSR; Emilia d. 1921.
iii August Neumann, b. December 08, 1891 in Heimthal Wollhynia, Ukraine; d. April 22, 1943, Federowka, Kustanaj, Kazahkstan, USSR.
iv Gottlieb Neumann, b. October 20, 1893 in Heimthal Wollhynia, Ukraine; d. July 30, 1973, Aktubinsk, Kazahkstan, USSR.
v Emil Neumann, b. November 24, 1900, Kalonka, Dawlekanowo, Ufa, Russia; d. September 29, 1993, Brantford, Ontario, Canada (my father). He emigrated to Canada in 1929 and lived briefly in Saskatchewan before moving to Montreal in 1930 and on to Ontraio in 1946. NOTE: Emil Neumann's first wife's sister married an Albrecht (Adolf Albrecht). This Albrecht family also lived in the Montreal area.
vi Emma Neumann, b. August 25, 1904, Kalonka, Dawlekanowo, Ufa, Russia; d, August 12, 1964, Zaparozzhe, Ukraine, USSR.
The most prolific of my father's siblings was Ottilie, his oldest sister. She has numerous descendants, most of whom have somehow managed to get out of asiatic Russia into Germany in the 1970's, 80's & 90's. Some have visited me in Canada.
I have much more information about the descendants of generation II, but am seeking any info about generation I (Christian Neumann, his siblings, his parents, his children).
