Teil 2:

 Lemmel/Laemmel families in the United States

H.D. Lemmel 1997, thereafter supplemented

By the year 2000 I have discovered 36 Lemmel/Laemmel immigrations to the US, the first in 1751, and most of them between 1850 and 1920. Some of them had no descendants or only daughters who did not preserve the family name; others had many sons and their families spread all over the United States. The majority lives in the states of Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio. Throughout the US there may be a total of 200 Lemmel and Laemmel addresses in the telefone books.

About the origin of the US Lemmel/Laemmel families

Families with the name "Lemmel" originate from Germany, mainly the province of Saxony, and the neighboring countries, specifically Alsace (in the northeast of France), Switzerland, Austria, Bohemia, and some more. The spelling of the name is varying: "Lemmel", "Lemel", "Lämmel", "Laemmel". These are different variants of the same name. Of all these variants I have a fairly complete archive for the seven centuries from 1300 to present.

Until the 19th century the spelling of names was not fixed. There are cases where the one of two brothers spelt his name "Lemmel", and the other "Lämmel". When a "Lämmel" went to America where the ä-Umlaut is not known, his name was recorded either as "Laemmel" or as "Lammel". The latter form, "Lammel", makes family research a bit difficult, because the fairly frequent German family name "Lammel" is a separate name and not a variant of "Lemmel/Lämmel".

Most of the Lemmel / Lämmel / Laemmel families originate from the same root. The first known ancestor is "Chunrad Lembelin" who lived as a merchant in Nuremberg (Nürnberg in Franconia in Northern Bavaria) around 1300. In the next generations the name changed to "Lemlin", "Lemlein", "Lemmel" and a few more variants. However, there are Lemmels and Laemmels, particularly in Alsace, who are not descendants of the Nuremberg Lemmels.

Due to lack of written documents it is not possible to trace back the Nuremberg family even further, but the name "Lembelin" is documented in Nuremberg already around the year 1150, more than 800 years ago.

Not related to the Nuremberg Lemmels are Lemmel and Lämmel families of Jewish origin, where the same family name emerged independently in different families not related to each other. But in the one or other case it might be as well that a Jewish Lemmel family originated from a Christian Lemmel who married a Jewish wife.

The Lemmels and Laemmels in the United States may be divided into
four groups:

1. coming from Alsace near the French-German border.

2. coming from Saxony.

3. coming from various parts of Germany.

4. of Jewish origin.

In all of these four groups the spellings Lemmel, Laemmel or, sometimes, Lammel are used in USA. It is the Alsace Lemmels who have by far the largest number of descendents in the United States.

         The Lemmel/Laemmel immigrations to the US

    Note the following signs:
    >!  =  Immigrants whose ancestors are known.
    >o  =  Immigrants whose ancestors are not known.

>!  Maria Lemmel, born 1690 in Melsheim, Alsace, and married to Hans Jacob Storck, came with her family to Pennsylvania in 1751. At the same time, Anders Lemel arrived in Pennsylvania; it is not mentioned from where he came. But Maria Lemmel from Melsheim had a brother Andreas, and it is either he or his son with the same name, who showed up in Pennsylvania in 1751. Thereafter, there are many Lemmels in Pennsylvania, who are most likely the descendants of Andreas. See under MeP. A branch of the Melsheim Lemmels.

>!  John Lemmel, born 1791 "in Germany" (where ?), emigrated to Jefferson county, Kentucky, in 1832. His son David F. Lemmel was a prosperous fruit farmer near Lanesville, Indiana, where his descendants live. For details see under MeL. - Most likely he is identical with Johannes Lemmel who was born in Breunsheim, Alsace, in 1791. Thus, this branch should be part of the Melsheim Lemmels.

>!  Johann Lemmel, born 1814 in Eckwersheim near Strasbourg, Alsace, France, a carpenter, went to Canada around 1845 together with his wife and young children. His brother Nicolaus and his sister Anna followed. Johann's son George had 7 sons. The family went to Nebraska in 1882, where they had many descendants. See under MeKN. This branch is part of the Melsheim Lemmels.

>!  Christian Gotthilf Lämmel, born 1793, a weaver in Chemnitz, Saxony, and his son Gotthilf Moritz Laemmel, born 1822, settled around 1850 in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, state of New York. The father returned to Chemnitz, but the son had many descendants living in the state of New York. For details see under Ns. This branch is part of the Chemnitz Lemmels.
>o  Johan Lemmel, a carpenter from Rohrbach in Saxony, went to USA with wife and 4 children in 1852. Ancestors and descendants are not known.

>!  Jean/John Lemmel, born 1803, and his brother Valentin Lemmel, born 1816, both from Melsheim, Alsace, France, came in 1853 to Loudonville, Ohio, where most of the descendants live. See under MeO. This branch is part of the Melsheim Lemmels.

>!  Jake Lemmel, born 1819 in Hurtigheim, Alsace, France, went to US around 1855 and settled in Wisconsin. In 1871 his young nephew John Lemmel, born 1855 in Quatzenheim, Alsace, France, followed his uncle and settled in Evansville, Wisconsin, as a harnessmaker. His descendants lived in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Texas. See under MeW. This branch is part of the Melsheim Lemmels.

>!  William Laemmel, born 1832 "in Germany", went around 1860 to Missouri where he had more than 500 descendants including the children of the daughters. He came from Köttwitzsch in Saxony. See under Mo.

>!  Heinrich Lemmel, born 1838 in Hamburg, was a sailor. In 1859 he deserted in New York. It is not known, where he lived and whether he had children.
>!  Henry Lemmel, a cousin of the before mentioned Heinrich, was born in 1844 in Altona near Hamburg. In 1873 he went on a steamboat to New York. He then became a prominent citizen and cigar-maker in St.Joseph, Missouri. He had 2 daughters but no son.
>!  August Lemmel, a nephew of Henry, followed him from Germany to Missouri where he had many descendants in Colorado and California. See details under Bü. This Lemmel branch, which settled in 1763 in Bülkau near Hamburg, is part of the Melsheim Lemmels.

>o  The brothers Paul and John Lemmel, born around 1840, place of birth unknown, settled around 1860 in the southeast of Indiana. They are likely to have come from Alsace, France.  For details see under Ind.

In addition, there were several Jewish Lemmels from Poland and surrounding regions who emigrated to the US via the German port of Bremerhaven, where they are listed in the emigration registers that I was not yet able to study..

The following pages show the remote relation of the US Lemmel immigrants: first the Lemmels immigrated from Saxony, then the Lemmels immigrated from Alsace.

8.3.2018            The relation of the Melsheim Lemmel branches in USA

For the 400th anniversary of the discovery of America to be celebrated in 1892, there was an official competition for a medal. The prize winner was Hermann Laemmel, a 27 years old engraver in Dresden, Saxony. The medal shows a lively portrait of Cristofero Colombo surrounded by two allegoric figures representing America (left) and Europe. The reverse side shows an American native (sitting on the ground) surprised by the arrival of the allegoric figure of Europe, a tall female with wide spread wings, coming over the ocean from the East which is represented by the sunrise in the background. Medals with a diameter of 59 millimeters were minted in gold, silver and bronce
