Family Pehleman and Pehlemann
The family Pehlemann first mentioned in 1622 in Germany - and is still living here, enlarged from the eastern part of germany across the country today. But some have gone out into the world: to Canada and the USA (countries where the name is spelled PEHLEMAN), to Namibia, to Belgium and to the Netherlands.
The very first generation of our family is documentated 1622 in Germany in a part of this country named ’Oderbruch’, a few miles eastside away from Berlin (following another information, there may be earlier a connection to Sweden in 1300). Looking to first generation, there is Peter Pehlemann, specified as an old farmer on soil - as we know, he founded our family. His frontname was further used for sons in many generations, so all our prime grandfather has to be specified as Peter I. His wifes name was unknown a long time, fortunately I found in 1982 in an archive of German gouvernment a document, describing son of Peter I. completely with data from father and missed data of our prime grandma, as added now to our history.
With reference to all the following generations in the familie we have to resume at once our different genealogic (family-)lines, at twice got changed livingplaces for the Pehleman(n)’s against our first residence spreaded over the world, for example going to little town named Bury in Canada or another from family which was emigrated to Windhoek in Namibia.
Indeed, it is my opinion to wake up interests in history of family, the family tree and countries and departures where lived Pehleman/n’s..Bringing back memories to all our grandfathers, grandmothers, fathers, mothers, uncles and aunts, to children, yes, all their children up to today, specially Peter, Carl, Gustav und Walter Pehlemann and our aunts Erika Pehlemann (in Germany) and Clara Manchester as well as Lilian Olson, with which I’ve had correspondence 35 years ago.
Here my link to a website with a list of people which wants to migrate to the USA (and later to Canada), No 223 is a grandfather of our family, named Carl Gustav Pehlemann born in 1833 and wants migrate (with his wife Emma Sophia born in 1832) with the SS Westphalica via New York ( USA ) to Illinois lateron to Bury, Quebec, Canada.
From hier in 2008 my greetings to Andrea, Evelyn and all the other Pehleman’s & Pehlemann’ in the USA
