Need all Deem researchers to check this out. Does anyone have conclusive, incontrovertable evidence of either Adam Deem Sr or his son Johannes Deem arrival dates in the US from Germany? I have different dates that I obtained that are not sourced. I find it odd and illogical that Adam Deem would have travelled to the US some 25 years before his soon came to America. Something is not right here and I hope someone out there can set the record straight once and for all.
Johannes Adam Diehm (John Deem) is recorded as arriving in America on the ship PATIENCE on September 19, 1749. Another Johann Adam Diehm left Kembach,Germany May 4, 1753 on the ship "Neptune".John Mason was the ships Master and it landed in Philadelphia Sept 24 1753.Johann was the town mayor but left Germany because of debts.
Adam Diehm/Deem came from Germany to Ireland and then to the American Colonies in 1725.Adam and his wife were among the earliest settlers of Hagerstown Maryland.
