Sorry Lori, No Idas, Als or Conrads in my database.Here are the names of known immigrants that I do have, if any of them ring a bell for you please let me know.It's likely that more in my database immigrated to the US because some I just have birthdates for, so if you can go back a generation or two further I may have something for you. I know that there are a bunch of Wittmanns in WI but I haven't yet found a connection.
Apparently it was the fashion to name all boys Johann in the 19th century, so it's quite possible that these individuals went by their second names.
Johann Nicol Wittmann b - 31 Jan 1796 near Coburg, Germany d - 25 Feb 1875 Hamilton, OH, USA Likely became a Nicolas or possibly John after immigration.
Heinrich Johann Octavius Wittmann b - 20 Jan 1823 near Coburg, Germany d - somewhere in the US (lost contact) Butcher by trade, probably changed his name to Henry after immigration.
Friedrich Wittmann b - 1825 near Coburg, Germany d - in US ~ my data says Cincinnati but also that he lost contact, so that info could be inaccurate Saddler by trade, probably changed his name to Frederick after immigration.
Johann Heinrich Emil Wittmann b - 8 March 1843 Coburg, Germany emigrated to Hamilton, OH, and fathered 3 sons and 2 daughters ~ The only record I can find of his in the US is a marriage record for a John H. Emil Wittmann who married Anna Maria Engel on 11 May 1872 in Butler, OH.I'm assuming he changed his name to John.
Clara Wittmann b - 24 Feb 1891 Erfurt, Germany d - 23 April 1858 St. Louis, MO
and her brother Fritz Rudolf Wittmann b - 18 June 1899 Ilversgehoven, Germany d - 9 Feb 1959 emigrated to the US in the 1920's and married
Their mother's name was Rosalie Schuchardt.
Two sisters: Anna Wittmann b - 23 March 1859 Scheuerfeld, Germany d - USA and Johanna Georgine Wittmann b - 5 March 1864 Scheuerfeld, Germany d - 1887 St. Louis, MO
They were bother married to Christian Wittershagen b - Germany d - 19 Jan 1918 St. Louis, MO Anna married him after he was widowed.I have found some records for them in 1890 St. Louis, MO
And their brothers: Christian Friedrich "Ernst" Wittmann b - 21 June 1862 Scheuerfeld, Germany d - 1910 St. Louis, MO What he might have changed his name to is anyone's guess, but my records show him going by the name Ernst while in Germany
Georg Max Wittmann b - 22 Oct 1868 Zedersdorf, Germany Emigrated to Kansas (my records show Iola, but they've likely moved on from there) Georg(e) fathered three sons: Max Wittmann - Born circa 1907 Karl Wittmann - Born circa 1910 George Wittmann - Born circa 1913 There are some Wittmanns in and around Kansas City whom I believe are probably descendants of this branch. The children of Max, Karl and George would be my father's 2nd cousins.
These are the only individuals I know of (so far) who for sure emigrated to the USA.If you or anyone else can lay claim to them, I have a great deal more info and I'd be very interested in exchanging it.
