Wondering if I can get any information about either Frederick Dickman (1833-1914) or is wife Augusta (Tilson) Dickman (1843-1937).I am particularly interested in their parents and their exact origins.
From what I understand Frederick and his brother Theodore immigrated to the US in 1857 from Germany.Exact origin is unclear, but current data is pointing to the Leer area of Lower Saxony.By 1860 he is in western IL.
Augusta Tilson immigrated separately in the early 1860s from Prussia. They were married and had their first child by 1867. They lived out their lives largely in Bureau and Stark Counties (IL).Their children are as follows:
Joseph T Dickman 1867 – 1951 Anna Dickmann 1869 – August Dickman 1870 – 1959 Emma E. Dickman 1872 – 1955 Bernard Dickman 1874 – 1954 Teresa Mary Dickman 1876 – 1966 Frederick Dickman 1879 – Francis Benedict Dickman 1881 – 1976 Clara L Dickman 1884 – 1958 Richard E Dickman 1887 –
If any of this looks familiar to you, please let me know.
