To the person who wondered about the parents of Frederick Earl Deichmann of Il.
He seems to be the son of Henry Deichman age 36 in 1900 Census in Effingham CO, Il with wife Maria age 35 and children Lewis, age 13, Linnie age 6, Florence age 4 and Earl age 1.
In the 1870 census there is a Henry Dickman age 8 which would be correct. This name is probably given to misspellings by census takers. The family was living in Mound, Effingham, CO, IL with widowed Catherine age 42 , born Prussia and children, William 17, Mary 15, Henry 8 and John 5. More work needs to be done but those are some leads.pamela
