Looking for any information on Florence (Florenz) EHRMAN(N) who enlisted in Civil War in Co. "G", 15th Illinois Infantry. Living then in Lena, Il. Enl. in Freeport. He died in Milwaukee 1879 in Veterans Home - no death certificate found. Need place of birth in France. Military papers give "Palwert Berryamott France" and "Bergamotte France" - can't find either place. 1850 Erie Co. NY census gives "Germany" as birthplace. Family tradition says he came to U.S. as a child from Alsace Lorraine. He had a son, George EHRMAN who was killed in Civil War in Co. "D" 34th Illinois Inf; another son, John EHRMAN, in Co. "E" 1st Reg. Illinois. George EHRMAN unmarried. John EHRMAN had son, Edwin EHRMAN living in Chicago as late as 1920. Would like to find Edwin EHRMAN's descendants. Appreciate any help; glad to exchange info with anyone interested.

I have found father candidates for my 3 g Grand father: George W. NOLAN, born 1823 (?Ohio?) which has IL connection. I think that George's father or uncle may be: Benet NOWLIN (aka Bennett and NOWLAN⁄NOLAN etc.). He was born 1795 in IL to parents: Lewis⁄Louis NOWLIN and Sarah WHITESIDE. Bennet married Nancy ROBESON, (ROBINSON⁄ROBERTSON?). He had brothers: James,Samuel,David, Hardin,and Lewis⁄Louis; sisters: Peggy, Elizabeth, Polly and Sarah. I found IL Land Records that show one or more Benet NOWLIN's purchased land in IL from 1816-1846, in Stephenson , Macoupin and Madison Co.s IL. A Bennet NOWLIN was said to be a miner (of what, I don't know...possibly lead or coal), and one of the first settlers of Green Co. WI where he arrived in ~1834. He purchased land in Dane, Green and Lafayette Co.s, WI untill the late 1840's. A Bennet NOLAN is rumored to have moved to Clayton Co. Iowa between 1850-1870, however , I have no proof of this. This is the thin evidence which leads me to hope that I am on the right track: The married sister of George W. NOLAN's future wife Drusilla BOWMAN, Jane Bowman WELLS {wife of Peter Garfield WELLS}, settled in Green Co.WI ~1838. Catherine M. NOLAN, (a daughter of George and Drusilla) b1846 IN -md C.C. CLEVELAND on 11Apr1865 in Boscobel, Grant Co. WISC.-d 1932 in Spokane, WASH. C. C. CLEVELAND bought land in Dane Co. WI. George W. NOLAN and family moved to Alamakee Co. IA in 1849. This county borders Clayton Co. IA. Any info on Bennet NOWLIN⁄NOWLAN⁄NOLAN⁄NOLAND etc. would be greatly appreciated. I live in Houston, TX. , home of the Clayton Library (Genealogy). For the online catalog, go to: Houston-Area Online Library Catalogs . I will gladly do reciprocal research for you. Happy Ancestor Hunting...........Susan Fortenberry

I'm starting a research of my mothers family. To the best of my knowledge they were from Lena  Buena Vista , Illinois. My maternal grandfather was George H. HINTZ (born around 1880 - next stop is a call to the county seat to see if I can get a copy of his birth certificate). He married a woman named Mary CLAIR (date of marriage is in the 1902⁄1905 timeframe). Mary was also from the Lena ⁄ Buena Vista area. Note there are lots of variations in the way Hintz get's spelled (one may see HINZ, HINZE, etc.). My grandfather was always insistent that the proper spelling was Hintz, and I expect any of his descendents would have retained that spelling. In so far as I know, George was born in this country, though he may have had older siblings that were born in Germany. History on mom's side of the family is little known. Any info you could provide or any suggestions to make my research go more easily would be much appreciated.
