Germann Family Lore and History


Germann Family Lore and History


John Philip Germann came to the states with his parents (Heinrich J Germann and Anna E Reidenbach) and brothers and sisters in 1834, from Germany. He was just 8 years of age. They lived in a brick home near Middlebury, Oh. Most of the entire family is buried in Redeemer Lutheran Cemetery in Convoy, Oh.

Here is a list of all buried in RLC:

I do not know who everyone is in this cemetery, but that is what I am going to work on putting together.

I do know that above that Emma Germann is daughter of Johann P and Mary E (Young) Germann.
I did find something odd, apparently there are two Mary E's at two separate cemeteries, BUT all clues say they are the same person, very odd.

This is what it says for the second Mary:

Birth: 
Apr. 23, 1837, Germany
Death: 
Nov. 29, 1919
Van Wert County
Ohio, USA

According to her death certificate, Mary lived 82 years, 7 months and 6 days. Cause of death, pnuemonia; contributory cause, arteriosclerosis. 


Burial:German Lutheran Church Cemetery
Van Wert County
Ohio, USA


So not sure which one is correct, but, then again, for some reason she could have two plots, some people do. UNLESS, this is the same person, in the same cemetery, some cemeteries have two separate names, I know this one also was called St Johns.

I found this on familysearch, do not know who it is, but again, continuing the search
