Not sure if this connects in any way... I'm actually searching for Asmus, however, I do know the girls changed their spelling to Osmus. My husband is related to Hulda Augusta (Asmus)Osmus, b. 2/28/1890 Chicago, IL. Her parents were August Asmus b. 1851 Germany and Augusta Peters, b. 12/25/1854 Germany. Hulda had a brother named Otto Asmus.History is very sketchy. Hulda married Edward Herman Joachim, b. 8/26/1892 Chicago, IL. If any of this makes sense or has a connection it would be great to hear about it.
