THE LEHMANN FAMILY HOMEPAGE

A FAMILY TREE can wither, if no one tends its roots.



2007,Courtesy of: Vincent Falter

Our LEHMANN FAMILY had their first known beginnings in Schirrhein, Bas-Rhin (Alsace), France (aka Shirrheim, Elsas, Germany). Here, within a cemetery in Schirrhein, lies LEHMANN family members and connecting family members such as the SCHITTER family.
Thank you, Vincent E. Falter for the photo.




Originally in France our French immigrants spelled the name:

LEHMANN

United States records give these corrupted surname spellings.

Lehman, Lahman, Layman, Laymon, Laman, and Lamon

My great-grandfather, Martin4 Lehmann (Michel/Michael3, Michel2, Johannes/Jean1 Lehmann), and his son, John5 Lehmann, are the only ones known to have kept the original spelling.



PORTRAIT ON A WALL

Sometime, when I have become a quiet portrait on the wall,
Will you, my fair descendant, stop to think of me at all?

Suppose your hands are shaped like mine and you have my keen sense of fun.  
Will there be one to tell you so.....then.....when my days are done?

If you love books and fires and songs, and silver moons in velvet skies,
Toss me a look of shared delight from those, my own dark eyes.

For there are kinships in a curl and namesakes in a spoken name;
The wine of life may yet be poured by faded hands within a frame.

    We Are The Chosen
    My feelings are in each family we are called to find the ancestors.
    To put flesh on their bones and make them live again,
    To tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve.
    To me, doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead,
    Breathing life into all who have gone before.
    We are the story tellers of the tribe.
    We have been called as it were by our genes.
    Those who have gone before cry out to us:
    Tell our story.
    So, we do.

    In finding them, we somehow find ourselves.
    How many graves have I stood before now and cried?
    I have lost count.
    How many times have I told the ancestors
    you have a wonderful family, you would be proud of us?
    How many times have I walked up to a grave
    and felt somehow there was love there for me?
    I cannot say.

    It goes beyond just documenting facts.
    It goes to who I am and why I do the things I do?
    It goes to seeing a cemetery about to be lost forever
    to weeds and indifference and saying I can't let this happen.
    The bones here are bones of my bone and flesh of my flesh.
    It goes to doing something about it.
    It goes to pride in what our ancestors were able to accomplish.
    How they contributed to what we are today.
    It goes to respecting their hardships and losses,
    their never giving in or giving up.
    Their resoluteness to go on and build a life for their family.
    It goes to deep pride that they fought to make and keep us a Nation.
    It goes to a deep and immense understanding that they were doing it for us
    That we might be born who we are.
    That we might remember them.
    So we do.

    With love and caring and scribing each fact of their existence,
    Because we are them and they are us.
    So, as a scribe called, I tell the story of my family.
    It is up to that one called in the next generation,
    To answer the call and take their place in the long line of family storytellers.
    That is why I do my family genealogy,
    And that is what calls those young and old to step up and put flesh on the bones.
