Amelung (All variations)

Marcine (Amelung) Lohman

New generations added!  I am now researching Andreas AMELUNCKEN born 1650 - 1660 in Germany and married to Ilse SAUERFINCK.  Their son, Hans Andreas Amelunke (born 1680 - 1690 in Bornum, Braunschweig, Germany and died 28 Aug 1757 in Königsdahlum) married He(i)dewig Elisabeth SCHIEBER on 12 Apr 1714 in Königsdahlum and they had three known children there: Peter "Andreas" Amelung who married Ilsa Maria SCHILLY, Hans Henny/Hennig Nicolaus Amelunke who married Catharina Maria KLAUENBERG, and Curdt Heinrich Ameluncke.

I descend through Peter "Andreas" Amelung's son, Johann Christof AMELUNG who was born Aug 1748 in Königsdahlum near Bockenem, Hildesheim, Germany. (See Map for details). He married Ilse Marie HAUENSCHILD sometime before 1774 in Klein Rhüden. Ilse was the daughter of Daniel HAUENSCHILD and was born in 1744 in Klein Rhüden. This information came from the Ev. Lutheran Kirchengemeinde - St. Martini Rhüden, Pfarrstr. 7, 38723 Seesen-Rhüden, Germany but they have no further information on this family.

I've been collecting any and all information on AMELUNG families (all spelling variations and locations) for a comprehensive database that I have but am especially looking for information on the above family.  ANYTHING is appreciated.

I have done extensive research on the PEES line but I am just starting on the AMLUNG's. There is a lot of information on this family at the Belleville Public Library.

Clinton Ehlert
I have found out over the last year that my male line of Ehlerts is really Ameling and that changed two times from Lenting then to Ehlert. So some Ehlerts in North America are a sub-branch of the Ameling Family. This is how my generations go:

The first person is
1.) Henricus Schultetus Ameling
2.) Albert Ameling, born September 1619
3.) Hindrich Schulze Ameling he married a Lentinck or Lenting, Born 1655
4.) Johannes Schulze (Ameling) Lenting, Born 1680
6.) Hermann Lenting, born May 30, 1727. When he married a Anna Elisabeth Kiwitt, she had a husband that passed away with the name Ehlert, so when John Hermann Lenting married her he changed his name to Johann Hermann Lenting Ehlert. He was born April 7, 1765.
6.) Johann Herman Gerard Henric (Lenting) Ehlert, born November 27, 1800. when he and His Wife Marie Christina Naber came to the United States in August of 1850, he took the name Johann Herman Ehlert and all of his descendants have the name Ehlert.
7.) John Herman Ehlert, born November 25, 1838. All of the above were born in a little farming community called Ammein near Ahause, Westfallen, Germany.
8.) Henry bernard Ehlert, my great Grandfther, born January 19, 1889 in Breckenridge, Minnesota.
9.)James John Ehlert, my Grandfather, born October 31, 1922.
9.) Larry Elwood James Ehlert, My father.
10.) Clinton Shannon James Ehlert, me.

I wonder how far back the Ameling name goes and if I could go further back then Henricus Schultetus Ameling. I would appreciate any help that any one could give or any suggestions on finding more of my ancestors in Ammein, Westfallen, Germany.

I recently started researching this BODENSTEIN line and would love to hear from anyone who might have a connection to this NEW YORK ancestry.

John BODENSTEIN, b. 1846 in New York, d. Sept. 12, 1891 in Rochester, Monroe, New York married, Fredericka S. (?), b. 1853 in Germany, d. Nov. 23, 1904 in Rochester, Monroe, New York.

They had (3) children all born in Rochester:

1. Lewis Jacob, b. Mar. 5, 1879
2. Louise Eleanore, b. July 1882
3. George John, b. May 3, 1884

Nancee B. Cobb

I am researching surnames from my father's side of the family which include Bodenstein, Hoffmeister, Overbeck, Beiser, and Achtermann. These families migrated from the area of Jerze, Ortshausen, and Bornum, Braunschweig, Germany to Gordonville and Jackson cities in the Cape Girardeau County area of Missouri. They traveled through the port of New Orleans, Louisiana, USA in about 1853. I have my father's DNA results and am hoping to find cousins through that resource as well.

Schlueter - Schlüter

Daniel and Crystal Schlueter
6 generations of SCHLUETERS and associated families along the Weser north of Vegesack.
I have found a huge line of SCHLUETERS from my line while traveling in Germany..they all originate north of Bremen in Schwanewede. (Along the Weser river). I am eager to see if any other Schlüter researchers can tie in that region.

Jim Hanks
Researching John H. SCHLUETER family. I am searching the line of my great grandmother Wilhelmina (sp.) KNACKSTEDT (nee SCHLUETER ) from St Louis, Mo. She was the product of a Henry SCHLUETER or John Henry SCHLUETER and Mary BORGSTEDT and born in 1865. Married in St. Louis in November of 1865, died in Los Angeles County in April of 1949. Any help or names appreciated.

Debra McLamb
Herman SCHLUETER, b. c.1840-1850, possibly 11-27-1849, possibly d. 6-27-1918, was living in St. Louis MO in 1880. He was married to Sophie BUSSE, dau. Herman or Frederick Herman BUSSE. Sophie was b. c. 1845. She is a g-g aunt of mine, and I am looking for someone who may know about the BUSSE family. Herman and Sophie may have been married in Germany or St. Louis. I am pretty sure the elder Busse came to the U.S. in the 1870s, and was living with Mr. Schlueter and Sophie in 1880. At this time they were joined by Sophie's sister, Caroline, her husband August WIESE and eight of their children. Both the BUSSE and WIESE families listed Germany or Prussia as their homeland, and probably came from the same area. Since Sophie, given her age, probably married SCHLUETER in Germany, all three families may have come from the same region. Other names connected by marriage: Chris RODENBURG m. Christine BUSSE, and an unnamed Busse m. KOLLMEYER or KAHLMEYER, from Linn, MO. They had Sophie and Emma. The WIESE kids m. SCHAEFER, NIEMEYER, PFAFF, DISSTLEHORST, SUEDMEYER, SAWADE (my line), KOESTERING, HARTWIG, JANUS, WOLFF, ROCHE or ROACH, all in or near St. Louis.
Anybody related to these folks?

Carl August Edmund SUEDEKUM b. April 16, 1824 in Braunschweig, Germany married Aug. 5. 1851 to Bertha Wilhelmine DURING and came to America.  Their first child, Theodore, was born Dec. 8, 1852 in Newport, Ky. He is my great great grandfather.  He died in Bay City, Mich. May 27. 1892.  His parents were Johann Fredrick SUEDEKUM and Henriette GAUS.  He had 7 brothers and sisters listed in the International Genealogical Index of Germany.  Carl was in the Civil War enlisting in Ohio.

Apparently two brothers migrated from Germany in the 1800s.  One settling in the Cape Girardeau (Missouri) area and one that moved between Bay City, Michigan, Stafford, Kansas and Two Buttes, Colorado among other places. It is this latter line, along with some of the spouses, I am trying to research. I have some information which has many conflicts as to dates and names. I have very little source material. I will be willing to share as I get it sorted out a bit better.

I am researching the SUEDEKUM family of the Dutchy of Braunschweig, Germany. The earliest ancestor is Johann Christoph SUEDEKUM (1701-1779). Previously done professional research places the family in Lutter am Gandersheim and Lutter am Barenberge. My ggfather was Karl August E. SUEDEKUM who came to the US in 1851 and settled in Covington, KY until moving to Bay City, Michigan in 1876. One son, Theodore, moved his family to Colorado. Another line of this family centers in Berlin, Germany, while a 3rd line was in the Nashville area.

Karl August SUEDEKUM married Bertha Wilhemine DURING August 5th, 1851 in Lutter am Barereberge (?) Germany and came to America.  Unknown ship or city of arrival.   They lived in Newport, Kentucky in Dec. 1852 when son Gustave Theodore was born.    He was my great grandfather.  There were other children but I have no names or dates.  I have names of parents of Karl and Bertha.  I wonder if the Suedekums of Cape Girardeau are related.
Thanks for any help

I am researching the two SUEDEKUM families in Cape Girardeau County, Missouri.  My line connects with Andreas SUEDEKUM / SÜDEKUM who married Conradine AMELUNGK. Both Suedekum families came from the Harz Mountain area of Germany (See Map for details). The second line in Cape Girardeau is that of Frederick C. SUEDEKUM.



I have so many people researching THORNTON/THURSTON that I made my own page of just Thornton researchers.

Walperswiller - Walperswyler

Chip Stratton
Family name predates 1800 in the Swiss village of Seedorf, Berne Canton. Presently there are only two people in the world that I am aware of that still carry this surname.   Benedict Walperswiller came to the USA in 1848, and may have served in the 1st Missouri Light Artillery during the Civil War. He is a gggrandfather to me. See also: Johann Dankel who married into this line.

Barbara Louise Williams
Wilhelm WALPERSWILLER and Emma S. W. DEIMUND, and Benedict WALPERSWILLER and Johanna S. W. AMELUNKE
WALPERSWILLER is from the Seedorf, Bern Cannon, Switzerland area. I have found on the LDS IGI FH site a Benedickt WALPERWILLER (He is from Seedorf, Bern Cannon, Switzerland) who was born in the 1760's time period. I figure that this is a relative but there needs to be another generation in between this person and our Benedict Walperswiller. I don't understand German Language at all and haven't yet started research from Switzerland.

I am also looking for DEIMUND's (DIEMUND, DIAMUND, DIAMOND, etc.) I'm back from Emma to her father William DEIMUND and his father William DEIMUND b. abt 1804 (Prussia), this Deimund came from Darmstradt, Hessen, Gremany. This family is also associated with the SACHS, LOOS, PROFFERS, SCHWER's, and others that I am not aware of yet.

My father, Wilhelm R. WALPERSWILLER, had occupations as a cook, with the circus, in construction and in mining. He changed his name to Ray Arnold WILLIAMS (Williams being the son of William) somewhere along the way. He meet my mother Bernice Arlene ROGERS in Kansas while he was working for the circus. Ray had three children, two sons and one daughter (me, Barbara L. Williams). He died at an early age, of Asthma & Emphazema.
