Re: Bernardt H. Dahlheimer
There may be a relation, but I think that Bernardt's father was actually born in Germany based on the 1880 census. I believe Bernardt's parents were William and Mary (Roth?) Dahlheimer, who are listed in the 1880 census living in Cleveland, Ohio, with children: John, Marie, William, Joseph, Franz, Edward, Gustav, Peter, George, and Lina. Bernhardt would have been born the next year, in 1881. The mother and oldest child, William, were born in Canada. However, I believe the father, John, was born in Germany. It lists William's occupation as a cigarmaker, and that is what Bernardt's occupation is listed in the 1930 census in Chicago.
