123 1830's German Catholic History along the Green Bay Trail in Grosse Pointe, IL.

15 February, 1852, the German Catholics of Buffal Grove, 10 miles west of St Joseph's, decided to build a Catholic Church.

The Church will be built on the borderline of Cook and Lake Counties in what is today's Buffallo Grove. Seven acres of land were acquired. Two from John S. Hennemann who also sold two more. Two from Pankratz Weidner and one from John Weidner.

Until this time the circuit-riding missionary priests of St Mary's Church (Diocese of Vincennes, Indiana) said Mass in the log cabins of local German families.

Prior to this, from 1673 to 1820 French Missionaries of Quebec, Canada provided Catholic Services in the area.

Rev. Father Joseph H. Fortmann (aka John N Fortmann in some records) arrives from Gross Point. The St Mary's Church is a mission of St Henry's Catholic Church in Ridgeville some 6 miles south on "the Ridge".

Rev. Fortmann has been the 2nd Pastor of St Joseph's after Rev Koop and prior to his transfer to St Mary's.

Rev Fortmann was probably ordained about 1818 by the Catholic Bishop residing in Hannover, Germany's Cathederal. He was educated in the 1-room school house of Sudlohne by his father, the teacher. His Church was St Gertrud's of Lohne just north of Sudlohne.

The Protestant Bishop's Cathederal was in Osnabruck some 20 miles WSW of Sudlohne. The Catholic Bishop in Munster was not the ruling Eclesiastic over Lohne; that was the Bishoprick of Hannover. Thus Rev Fortmann's ordination record is probably in the Catholic Cathederal of Hannover.

Rev Fortmann probably sailed to the US in the late 1830's or early 1840's as a result of the German community in Gross Pointe writing to their previous Bishop in Hannover for a priest.

The Fortmann name in the 1830's is concentrated in the Lohne, Sudlohne, Munster - Osnabruck area of Germany and most probably Rev Fortmann's birth record exists in St Gertrud's Baptism Archival records dating back to 1683. By 1846 three Fortmann Cousins's, Clemens August Ludwig, Heinrich, and Anna Maria lived in today's Wilmette as parishones of St Joseph's. Undoubtedly these Fortmann's all knew each other.  
GrossFortmann Franz Joseph [ Heinrich ? ]
 
124 A Henry Fortmann appears in the 22 Aug 1850 US Census as a farmer in New Trier, Illinois.
He is not a known family member.
The $150 value of his farm suggests his farm is about 60 acres.
There is no indication of a Wife or children with him.
He may be the Reverend Henry Fortmann mentioned in "The Life and Writings of the Right Reverend John McMullen, D.D., First Bishop of Davenport, Iowa (1851)since it was not uncommon for a Priest to have to provide for himself. Priests of this era spent days on horseback visiting their parishners.
If he is, he would also be the Pastor of St. Joseph's Catholic Church from 1847 to 1852.
This priest is the priest who said Mass at the wooden frame house of Peter Schmitt "on the Ridge" in the 1845-1852 period.
This priest is a "Gross" Fortmann 1st cousin to Heinrich, Clemens and Anna Maria. This Priest and Henry, Clemens and Anna Marie Fortmann all live in New Trier at this time. In Germany there are only 4 farms owned by Fortmanns and this suggests Heinrich was born on the GrossFortmann Farm. We know 2 of the 4 farms as the GrosFortmann farm and the KleineFortman Farm on which Heinrich, Clemens and Anna Maria were born.

He was Pastor of St Joseph's Catholic Church in New Trier (Wilmette) from 1847-1852.
Ten miles west of New Trier another German Community in Buffalo Grove is building St. Mary's Church and that Church's records show that in 1853 Rev. Henry Fortmann became their Pastor.
 
GrossFortmann Franz Joseph [ Heinrich ? ]
 
125 Rev Franz Joseph Fortmann, Son of Heinrich Anton [Gross]Fortmann and Anna Magdalena Polking was 2nd Pastor of St Joesph's Catholic Church from 1846 to 1852 and was then appointed 1st Pastor of St Mary's, Buffallo Grove in 1853. GrossFortmann Franz Joseph [ Heinrich ? ]
 
126 Two Bishopric's dominated the Lohne area from ancient times, Munster and Osnabruck.

Munster, established in 791, included a large territory south of Frisia, west of Brunswick and east of the Netherlands. Sporadically united with Cologne from the 16th Century, permanently from 1723.

Osnabruck, is a city in northwestern Germany and the seat of a Bishop from 783. In 1517 Martin Luther's nailing of his treatises on the Cathederal Door of Worms began the Protestant Reformation, This Bishopric and surrounding territory convert to Protestantism, in which it remained until being recaptured by Catholic forces, then retaken by the Protestants during the 30 Years War of 1608 - 1638. The Treaty of Westphalia ending that conflict contained the unusual provision that Catholic and Protestant Bishops should alternate thereafter.

Another note of interest concerns the last Bishop. When the Bishopric was mediatized in 1802, its princely status was retained as an appendage of Hannover. The Elector (and later King) at the time was the last Bishop's Father, thus providing the only example of a father succeeding his son.

127 1850 US Census: shows an Antonie Hascan in Chicago Ward 8.......this is probably our man as there is no closer surname in Chicago. Haskamp Anton aka Anthony
 
128 Anton Haskamp was the key person in determining where the Fortmann's migrated from in Germany.

When his brother, Franz died in Germany in 1884 [Franz had married a Fortmann sister in Germany] Anton filed a US request on April 4th 1884 for a Passport to visit LOHNE, Germany. This track took us to St Gertrud's Catholc Church in Germany and the Haskamp and Fortmann birth, death, and marriage records.

Both Families were farming families 2.4NM So. of Lohne in Sudlohne. 
Haskamp Anton aka Anthony
 
129 At age 59, having just learned of his brother Franz's death in Sudlohne Germany, Anton, on 28 April 1884 applies for a US Passport to visit LOHNE, GERMANY.
........this is the 1st US record indicating the location in Germany of Clemens and Heinrich Fortmann.
.......US Citizens: Anthony, Heinrich, Clemens and their Sister, Anna Maria Kleinefortman were all baptized in St Gertrud Catholic Church in Lohne, Germany.
.......As of this date, 24 Feb 2008, none of their ship passage's has been located. 
Haskamp Anton aka Anthony
 
130 Baptismal Witnesses:
...........Gerd Haskamp, (a Brother of Franz, baby Anthony's father?)
...........Maria Gertrude Krogmann (a Sister of Herbert Krogmann?)

131 By trade Anthony is a butcher and it is probable that he provided his services to John Lauermann, propritor of "Lauermann's General Store" in New Trier, Illinois now Wilmette, Illinois.  Haskamp Anton aka Anthony
 
132 On April 28 1884, Franz's brother Anton, executes a US Passport to return to Lohne Germany to assist with the estate arrangements of his deceased brother Franz. Franz had earlier married a Fortmann sister. Haskamp Franz (brother of Anton)

149 It is June 8, 1783 and a massive volcanic eruption splits Iceland in its midst spewing sulphuric fumes into the stratosphere. Within 3 days the northwesterly winds off the North Sea have delivered clouds of sulphuric acid high over Germany and they rain down sulphuric acid on the Fortmann farms.

None of this is however known to the Fortmann's nor can they concieve the effect this will have on future generations who, two generations from now, 55 years in the future, will start to migrate to the United States. All they know is that life is getting tougher.

The winters of 1783, 1784 and 1785 are bitterly cold. The crops of these years are stunted and very poor. Famine lurks in the countryside.

Hermann Heinrich Fortmann, age 49, and his wife Anna Elizabeth Kathmann Fortmann struggle to feed the family. And, while they cannot know it, their 19 year old daughter Anna Maria {they have no sons] shall inherit the farm and will become the Grandmother of the three KleineFortmann's, Anna Maria, Heinrich, and Clemens who shall migrate to the United States 55 years from now in 1838.

150 Possible death entries from Pastore Suttholt's St Gertrud Record:

p.128 - 27 Feb [1779] Herbert Fortman 57 [b. abt 1722]

p.236 - 25 Feb 1807 Herman Hen [Heinrich] Fortman; [calculated birth date 1722]

p.250 - 21 Feb 1810 Herm.[Herman] Hen [Heinrich]: Fortman viduus 68; [birth date 1742]

since there are several Herbert Fortmann's in the GROSSfortmann line (23 Nov 1794 and 29 Oct 1831)

it is more probable that the correct Herman Heinrich is the 25 Feb 1807.... beacause the 21 Feb 1810 Herman would have only been 22 years of age at his daughter Anna Maria's birth and since German males of this period married about 26 he would have been 21 when he sired her. The Father, Wilhelm Wilke would have been 36 when 1807 was born versus 46 when 1810 was born, rather late for a 1st born son. 1807 is more probable.

152 Land Rights:
The 1788-1792 Church birth records of St Gertrud's Catholic Church, Lohne, Germany, appear to confirm that this woman, "oldest Daughter" of Anna Maria Kleinefortmann herein, and "oldest Granddaughter", of Hermann Heinrich Fortmann, b 24 Jun 1732 [1722?]is the blood line ancestor of Clemens, Heinrich, and Anna Maria Fortmann who migrated to New Trier, Illinois in the 1840's............these two women are the daughter's of two father's, Herbert Krogmann, b. abt 1756 and Hermann Heinrich Fortmann, who failed to sire any male sons. The last Kleinefortmann "land-rights" holdng male was Wilhelm Wilke Vortmann, born 1696 who sired Hermann Henirich Fortmann. From the naming history of Fortmann males born in 1815 (the 1st KLEINE male BORN IN 83 YEARS) and thereafter it seems there was an awareness of these early male Fortmann's as the names Hermann and Heinrich carry on generation after generation.

153 Lot 5 Block 5 owner: H. Fortmann St. Henry's Cemetery record shows K. A. Fortman, (Katherina?)date of death: 1857........could this be mother of Johannes Heinrich, a.k.a. Henry 1st, and Clemens Fortmann? This Cemetery card record entry appears to have been made after the original card was made and could imply that this is a reburial......since death date is before Cemetery was opened in 1863....perhaps reburial from City Cemetery. KleineFortmann Katharina Maria (wife of Franz Ludewig, Mother of Clemens, Henry 1st & Anna Maria)

157 This is a history of Franz's Son Heinrich's burial Cemetery in Chicago.
...............St. Henry's Cemetery founded in 1863.......Lot 5 Block 5....owner H Fortmann (Johannes Heinrich Joseph, a.k.a. Henry 1st) shows a grave site for S.E. Fortmann w/date 30 Dec ??? on the plot card...entry was made after original card written .....this implies a possible reburial from another site since the year is unknown.....Chicago City Cemetery (founded abt 1825....closed in 1870 with all but 1,000 of 20,000 disinterred for reburial) and a Catholic Cemetery founded in 1835 near 23rd and Calumet predates St Henry's Cemetery.....additionally.....this burial site contains the remains of K. A. Fortmann, 1857....next to S. E. Fortmann. Note 1857 predates the opening of St Henry's and thus also inplies a reburial from an earlier grave.
These are clearly Fortmann family relatives and lying side by side with no coffin indication on the card suggests children or relatives reburied on the site of the eldest Fortmann Son, Johannes Heinrich (Henry 1st)Joseph Fortmann..........this also suggests the Fortmann's were in the Chicago area pre their appearance as land owner's on the 1870 Census...........the 1861 "Flowers" map in the Library of Congress clearly shows Clemens Fortmann owning land on Ridge & Robie St Section in 1861. They have since been found mis-indexed in the 1850 Census.
Clemens & Henry therefore were in this area by 1845. Heinrich has since been found to purchase property in 1849 and marry a Lauermann sister in St Joseph's Catholic Church in Wilmette on 29 Jan 1846. His date of arrival in the United States is therefore now narrowed to 1840 to 1844.

This burial site also contains K. A. Fortmann, 1857.....next to S.E....is also a grave predating the opening of St Henry's and thus implying an earlier burial...............this also suggests that the Fortmann's were in the Chicago area pre their appearing on the 1870 Census..........the 1861 "Flowers" map in the Library of Congress shows Clemens Fortmann owning land on the Ridge & Robie St. Section in 1861.
Clemens & Henry must therefore have been in this area by 1860.

163 1839:
Johann, age 51, his wife Anna Catharine, age 44, arrive in America from Germany with Sons John, age 19, Nicholas, age 9, daughters, Barbara, 20, Mary, 15, Katherine, 13, Maria Katherina 9, . They probably leave France in spring 1839 or 1840. Leaving LeHavre, France they land in New York. Abt early 1841 they move to Gross Point, Illinois and build, buy and open a tavern on Ridge Road in New Trier.

2 Apr 1847
Johann shall only enjoy the fruits of the new venture for about 6 years before he is laid to rest at age 58 in St Joseph's Catholic Cemetery 2 blocks SE of his home. His eldest Son Johann III, age 27, shall take over the Tavern and Store.

Within 2 years his sisters shall marry the Fortmann boys and Anton Haskamp.

A very close German Community. 
Lauermann Johann (John) B., II [ 3 ] the Immigrant to New Trier, IL
 
164 1850:
Census shows Son John as a General Merchandiser and town records show his business to be "Lauermann's Dry Goods Store".
1847:
John B., his father of age 59 has died 3 years earlier Apr 2, 1847. In America 8 years.

Mother Anna Catherine has 3 unmarried daughters 2 of whom will marry the Fortmann brothers Heinrich and Clemens and their buddy Anton Haskamp shall marry daughter Mary.

Anton's older brother Franz has married the Fortmann's sister in Germany.

1846:
The Fortmann Brother's single older sister Anna Maria has also died, 4 years ago (30 Aug 1846) age 33 and she rests in St Joseph's Cemetery probably near John B. (2009: Cemetery records do not show her grave site.)
In America about 7 or 8 years. 
Lauermann Johann (John) B., II [ 3 ] the Immigrant to New Trier, IL
 
165 1850:
Census shows Son John, age 30, as a carpenter and a farmer with land valued at $200 in New Trier Township.
John B.'s property lies between that of his Son John and his family and that of Conrad Fischer.

167 In addition to owning the Dry Goods Store the Lauermann family owned and operated Lauermann's Tavern in the 1840's. This was a family of growing means in the New Trier area, 15 miles north of the Chicago River. Lauermann Johann (John) B., II [ 3 ] the Immigrant to New Trier, IL
 
168 John B. Lauermann was the owner and founder of J.B. Lauermann Dry Goods Store which probably opened in the late 1840's in Grosse Pointe, now Wilmette, IL. The store was located north of Lake St. on Ridge Road at the intersection of Forest St next to where the Mallinckrodt College used to stand. This was probably home to the Fortman boys, Heinrich and Clemens as they courted Katherine and Maria Katherine prior to marrying them in 1848 and 1852.

John B. dies in 1847 and so Mother, Katherine's big interest in life is to marry her daughters. Her Son John J., age 27, has inherited the store and at his death title will go to his Son Joseph who is visible as a store-keeper in the 1880 US Census, p. 16.

1839:
Johann, age 51, wife, Anna Catharine, age 44, arrive in America from Germany with sons John, age 19, Nicholas, age 9 and daughters, Barbara, 20, Mary, 15, Katherina, 13, and Maria Katherina, 9.

It is highly probable that from the Saarland they traveled via the small rivers of France to LeHavre, France to board ship for New York.

Probably landing in New York and spending some time in the German community of NY Johann desides to travel via the Erie Canal to Buffalo and board a sail boat for Chicago. Proceeding 14 miles north of Chicago they settle in the small German community of Gross Point, Illinois and open or purchase the small tavern on Ridge Rd.

1850:
Census shows son John, age 30, as a carpenter and a farmer with land valued at $200 in New Trier Township. J. B.'s property lies between that of his son John and that of Conrad Fischer.

1850:
Census also shows son John as a General Merchandiser.

1847:
John B., age 59, has died 3 years earlier on April 2, 1847. In America 8 years.

Mother Anna Catherine has 3 unmarried daughters, 2 of whom will marry the Fortmann brothers Heinrich and Clemens. Their buddy Anton Haskamp will marry daughter Mary.

Anton's older brother Franz has married Anna Maria Gertrude Kleinefortmann, the brother's sister in Germany, on 17 August 1847.

The Fortmann's parents have died in Germany on 7 Jan 1834 (Mutter) and on 11 Jan 1839 (Vatter). Sister, Anna Maria, age 33 has died in New Trier on 30 Aug 1846. (7 or 8 years in America) and she rests in St Joseph's Catholic Cemetery probably near John B. (2009: current Cemetery records do not show her grave site.)

1840
Census: No indication of Fortmann's in New Trier or Chicago. New York, Baltimore, and New Orleans also blank. Fortmann family oral history always said "the Lauermann's arrived in Chicago before the Schmidt's" That would place arrival in 1841 since the Schmidt's buy land in May 1842.

The 3 Fortmann's, Heinrich, 35, Anna Maria, 27, and Clemens, 16, probably departed Lohne, Germany in the spring of 1839 or 1840 via Bremen (records destroyed in 1870). They next appear at the Lauerman's in 1846 in New Trier.

In 1908, 18 years later, the family shall decide to sell the bulk of the 100 acre farm to Edgewater Golf Course for the benefit of the 2 Fortmann nee Lauermann widows and 16 children of Clemens and Heinrich who in 1849 paid $1.50 an acre to their married sister Barbara and her husband John Wagner, then holders of the land.
The KleinFortmann farm in Sudlohne, Germany which the brothers and their sister Anna Maria left in the early 1840's has also changed hands but today Sep 10, 2008, 168 years later, that farm still exists within the same boundaries it had in 1840.

In 19 years, 1908, the family shall decide to sell the bulk of the Fortmann farm to Edgewater Golf Course. This sale will provide the means for some 16 Fortmann's and 2 Lauermann widows to reap the rewards of their husband's/father's settling on this land in 1849. Land that they paid $1.50 an acre for.
