My mother was a Rossman from Lakeview, Michigan. I have a booklet produced by the family showing the family tree extending back about 300 years, to the emigration of our ancestors from Germany to the New World. I believe the year was 1710 (I don't have the booklet in front of me). My great-great granddad was Harmon II, who was a Union soldier. His dad was Fite Rossman. I don't recall at the moment whether it was he or *his* dad who fought in the US War of 1812.
