Hello and welcome to the Lehmann family home page. The Lehmanns came from the small towns of Gremmelin and Glaswitzer Burg, or just east of Guestrow. Guestrow is in far northeast Germany, or 95 miles northwest of Berlin. Guestrow, of the old Grand Duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, is currently in the County or Kreis of Guestrow of the German State of Mecklenburg-West Pomerania. The earliest known Lehmann was Christian Lehmann and was the 5th Great Grandfather of Carolyn. He was born around 1700 in Gremmelin. Her 3rd Great Grandfather, Johann Lehmann, was born in 1770 at Gremmelin. Church records from microfilm at the Pfarrkirche at Guestrow show he married Maria Paegelow from Kuhs in 1814. A son, Carl Lehmann, married Frederike Bell from Luedershagen at Guestrow in 1848. Carl then passed away at age 61 in 1877. Five years later, Frederike and her two sons, Fred and Charles, immigrated to Chicago, Illinois. They departed from the Bremen port in Germany and arrived at the Baltimore, Maryland port on the ship S.S. Leipzig on 15 May 1882.
Fred Lehmann married Augusta Reichow in 1889 in Whittemore, Kossuth County, Iowa. Charles Lehmann, Carol's Great Grandfather, married Mary Hundrieser in Chicago on 29 November 1890. Mary was born in Detroit, Michigan and her family came from a long line of Hundriesers, originally from Salzburg, Austria in the 16th Century and later from Putzig, West Prussia. Edward Lehmann, born in 1895, married Anna Collins in 1921 in Chicago. Anna's parents were Michael Collins and Mary Daley. Frances Mae Lehmann born in 1924 married Steven Yereb in Chicago in 1949. Steven and his parents Thomas and Anna Soplanda Yereb came from Koncanica, near Daruvar, Slavonia, Croatia in 1904. Other relatives were the Hermann family of Kronberg and Frankfurt, Hesse, Germany. The Hermanns migrated from Germany to Preston, Ontario, Canada, and to Chicago. Please contact me if you have updated information or can link to any of these families. It would be great to hear from you.
