Betty, don't know if you're still searching, but I have located A Joseph B Wiesmann in Cleveland directory from 1869 thu 1878, by 1880 directory he is gone. My family has a Joseph B Wiesmann, b.abt 1838 Germany. Our group came to America in 1840's, settled in Cinn. some moved on to Cleveland,some stayed in Cinn., and some moved back to Cinn., OH. Maybe we are connected. P.S. I have a great find from one of the directories. It shows a carpenter running with his tools, titled... J.B. Wiesmann, Carpenter & Joiner, 104 Ontario St, Cleve,OH I'd love to send you a copy.
