Re: erdmann family...Ontario Canada
It's been a while since I checked the site and until recently have not been able to find any Canadian Erdman(ns)s, wondering if this branch is any relation to the following Erdmanns who emigrated from somewhere in Prussia, i would imagine it would have been the mid to late 1800's: My grandfather was John Erdmann who married Martha Haas, they settled farming in the Renfrew/Pembroke Ontario area.John had a brother Frank who moved to the States, possibly Michigan.John and Martha had several children, dates of birth unknown but sometime between 1890 and 1917.....some of the children were: Martin Francis Erdmann, John Erdmann,(m. Yvonne Gauthier) Elmer Erdmann, Rita Erdmann, Cecilia (Celia)Erdmann, Jemima (jean)Erdman, Mabel Erdmann Huot and Martha Erdmann.Only JOhn and Elmer stayed in Pembroke. The others were scattered about Hamilton, St. Catharines, Cambridge (Galt). Unfortunately I have no other information and I believe all family members of that generation have now passed away. JOhn Erdmann's son, Kenneth and daughter Shirley have remained in Cambridge. If any of this is familiar, I would be pleased to hear fromyou or anyone who might be related or have information.
