ANDREAS Diehm, b. GER 1804, to U.S. 1837

  of 255

Andreas Diehm,(b. 1804 GER, d. 18 Dec 1879,Springfield, Clark Cty., OH, bu. Ferncliff
Cem.) and wife Catherine Barbara Kissell (b.1817 GER, d. 29 Oct 1877, Springfield,Clark Cty., OH, bu. Ferncliff Cem.) came to the U.S. on the ship "Die Freunde" dep. Bremen ?, arrived in New York harbor 15 Sep 1837. Immigrant records show his occupation as "Smith", a trade followed by many of the descendants of his oldest son,
Andrew Deam (the name was anglicized after immigration), who was born GER 07 Dec 1834,and died 16 Nov 1916, Lancaster, Dallas Cty., TX (bu. Edgewood Cem.). Other children were John G., J.Peter, Catharine Elizabeth, and Henry. I've been unable to locate the family between 1837 and 1850, when they were enumerated in the Clark Cty., OH census. That record shows the last four children as born in Ohio.

The oldest son, Andrew, married Mary Susan Holder somewhere in Indiana in 1856. By 1861 they were in Hopkinsville, KY, and moved to Texas shortly after the Civil War. I would
like to find out any information on the rents and family of Andreas and Catherine Barbara (Kissell) Deam, especially that which might shed some light on whether and how he was related to some of the Deam/Deem/Diehms in Indiana. Their oldest child was the only one to 'stray' too far from Ohio, and by the time his parents died the rest of the family had lost touch w/ him, as probate records show that he was "whereabouts unknown". Any information appreciated.
