I am researching my father's family. His fathers name was Herman Pohlman. Herman married Martha Nell Moore and they had 13 children together.She was several years younger than he was. There is not alot of information known about Herman or Nell. He was born in approx. early 1880's and possibly lived as a young boy in Elk Grove or Paletine, Illinois or maybe came over on a ship from Germany,and died either in 1939 or 1938. I am trying to find out who his parents are, brothers, sisters, etc. Herman and Nell lived in Nashville, TN. for the 1920 census, and in Birmingham, AL. in the 1930 census.I have several Herman Pohlman's as a child during the 1880's but no concrete proof to tell which one he is. His parents may be a Conrad and Sophie Pohlman, but not sure. The Pohlman name may have an extra "n" on the end.
