I'm wondering if anyone has a connection to a Friedrich Georg Eickmann who married a Rebecca Meta Behrens in Hanover, Germany. They had at least one daughter, Meta Maria Eickmann who married Claus Tietjen on July 23, 1878 at the Zion German Evangelical Lutheran Church in Brooklyn, NY.
They were married by F. W. T. Steimle, who was the first minister of the church which began in 1855. The church is still in use today.
Witnesses to the marriage were Catharina Tietjen(I'm assuming a sister to Claus) and Wilhelm Eickmann, possibly a brother to Meta Maria Eickmann?
