This gentleman was my great grandfather. He was a fisherman all of his life, born in Barth, Prussia, 11 June 1863. His parents were Heinrich Christoph Niemann (b Straminki c28 June 1837)and Frederike Sophie Johanna Schmidt (b Diwitz c18 Mar 1840). In Australia he was known as Charles or Karl Newman and emmigrated (?)from New York, USA, around 1881. I think the rest of his family remained in the US. Does this fit in with anyone elses families?
