Leslee - nice to hear from someone from my family line.
I found alot of Amermans in Cayuga County, N.Y.An e-mail on GenForum says the first Amermans to migrate to Cayuga Co. NY were descendants of Jacobus Amerman b 13 APR 1721 d 17 Jan 1777, wife Mariah (Herder, Harder).They had nine children:Hendrick, Albert, Jacobus, Mary, Fransvntje, Anna, Powel L. b 6 OCT 1762, Peter b 27 APR 1766, and Isaac b MAR 1768.Three sons emigrated to Cayuga: Peter in 1796, Isaac in 1808, and Powel L. in 1812.They were possibly the 1st Amermans to migrate there.
Henry P. Amerman was born abt 1811 in NY, wife Mary Ann b abt 1821 in NY.In 1850 census he was a farmer in Niles, Cayuga Co., NY.Children:William H. b 31 Jul 1844 NY, d 19 Aug 1924 Sterling Colo; Peter L. b abt 1837 NY; Jacob b abt 1847 NY; Ann Eliza b abt 1849 NY.It's possible Henry P's father was Peter or Isaac.
William H married Mary A. Cleveland in NY.She was born 26 Nov 1839 NY, d 25 Jan 1912 Sterling, Colo. 1850 to 1870 census he lived in Niles, NY.In 1880 Census he was a miller in Scott, Cortland Co., NY.Children:Fred b abt 1868, d NY before 1880 census; Dorr b 10 Aug 1872 NY, d 25 Aug 1956, LA, Calif.; Day b 10 Aug 1872 NY.
The family moved to Fleming, Colo and in the 1900 census Dorr and Day were 27 and lived at home in Fleming.Dorr was a teacher and Day was a cattle herder.
Dorr became a Methodist minister and married Katie Belle Morris (my grandmother) 16 Oct 1904 in Fleming.Children:Dorothy Mabel (my mother) b 13 Jul 1908, Atwood, Colo; d 14 Nov 1998 Santa Barbara, Calif; Lucille Wilma b 22 May 1912 Sedgwick, Colo., d 29 May 1960, Duarte, Calif.; Eugene Stanley b 18 Nov 1913, LA, Calif.; d abt 1976, LA Calif.The interesting thing about Dorr is that 1918he was thrown out of the church for heresy, looked about for a religion and joined the United Lodge of Theosophists.His children and grandchildren were and are Theosophists but my brother and I are not.Dorr and Katie Belle lived in Inglewood, Calif the rest of their lives. Dorothy (my mother) has 3 living children, Lucille 4, Eugene 4.
Day b 10 Aug 1872, d ?. 1900 census Fleming, Colo. 1910 census - Fanning Pct., Scott's Bluff, Neb.1920 Census - Fleming , Colo.In the 1930 census he was listed twice - in Pueblo in a hospital, and in Crowley with Grace and Anna.
I have info on Wm H's siblings if you want that, and on my brothers and cousins.My main goal is to find Henry P's parents and siblings.
