Interesting, my Pohlman's used to be Pohlmann, but lost the second n.. mann in German means man so it was Americanized.
My Pohlman's mostly live in the Delphos, Ohio area and I think it is all Pohlman there. Ours got to USA in 1840's, from a place called Wellingholzhausen, through Bremen which is a big port city. Wellingholzhausen is near Osnabruck.
I have also seen it spelled Poehlmann. I met someone a while ago who immigrated after WW II and spelled it with a "e" in there, but pronounced the same as mine. Ours are mostly Catholic.
