The original spelling is Soistmann.
Four brothers came here from Germany at different times but all came to Philadelphia, Charles (1837), Conrad (1846), Frederick (1854), and Louis (1865).
I am related to Frederick, my family migrated from Philadelphia to New Jersey.
The Charles branch migrated to primarily Baltimore and somewhere along the line changed the spelling to Soistman and from there they scattered across the country.
I have most of the lineage documented.
What exactly is your connection?
