Henry/Heinrich Ludwig Roethemeyer born in Sudhemmern, Westphalia on Sept 13, 1865
August Roethemeyer born in Sudhemmern, Westphailia on Nov 17, 1870.
Both immigrated to the US about 1893 (I believe).
According to oral family history, the brothers married two sisters:Henry married Fredericka Riechman(n) and August married Sophia/Sophie Riechman(n).
I'm trying to find out why the brothers immigrated to the US & if anyone knows what their father's full name was.
Does anyone know the father(s) name(s) for Fredericka & Sophia/Sophie Riechman(n)?
In Germany the name was spelled Rothemeier (with the umlat above the O), then it was changed to Rothemeyer (still with the umlat), and in the US it became Roethemeyer.
