Recently found the message about August Niemeyer. I am related to an August Niemeyer via Charles (1900), Delbert (1924), and Lee (1952) but they settled in Walsh, IL just outside of Chester. He and his brother Heinrich came over in the mid 1800s. (I can't remember all of the details as my mother has the documents). email me if any of this sounds familiar and I will get the specifics for you.
