I am helping a friend research his family. He is related to Michael Edelmann of Erligheim, Germany. He emigrated to Cleveland in 1851 with wife Sophia and child Johanna. Michael Edelman 42, b. Wuerttemberg, Sophia 43, Hannah 15, John 7, Louisa 3, mother Louisa 64 are found in the 1860 census for Cleveland, Ohio. Michael died after 1870 and before 1880. Sophia is found as a widow with son John Hermann Edelman in the 1880 Census for Cook co., IL. The Naturalization Record for Michael Edelman in Cleveland Ohio states that he came from Erligheim, Germany in Aug of 1851. Have you found any further on this family in Germany?
