I also have a branch of Fleemans who were originally Fliehmann. Frankly I'm excited to here that spelling is still around. My branch lived in the northern Kentucky area and the grandkids all look at me as if I'm nuts when talking about the other spelling. I had the spelling passed down orally at first, then in the same cemetery where my g-great-grandmother was buried, I found her father spelled as Fliehmann. I knew they came from Germany, but after seeing this little group of Fliehmanns, I suspect they came over around the 1850's. The reason I think this is because their young son's grave is written in German. The later generations are not. If you have any Fliehmann history to pass along, that would be great!!
