Though my name was changed through divorce-and-adoption my original family name was Ottman. I do not yet have a lot of information but am becoming very interested in following it further. My grand fathers name was Thaddeus McGregor Ottman, Grandmothers name was Isabella. They resided in upsate New York around Albany, Buffelo and Syracuse. My fathers name is James Ottman and I have three brothers Tom, Todd (deceased), and Eric. I am very curious if any of these names have come up before in any of the searching that you have done. After talking with my father I will post what I have learned which may help fill in some gaps somewhere else. Thanks in advance for any responses.
