Fortmann Heinrich Wilhelm
 
79 This is the only "Henry Fortmann" on CastleGarden.ord entering the United States during the period 1835 to 1848. He is age 26, therefore born in 1821 and he came from France aboard the Clipper Hartley.
This man is not a known relative of Heinrich or Clemens Fortmann and while his age is within 2 years of Heinrich's birh (1824) his information is taken from his passport and so this isn't our Heinrich.
He is also not the Priest Henry Fortmann, b 1802.

82 Herman dies at the age of 26 on the family farm as a result of being kicked in the head by a horse at an earlier age. Fortmann Herman
 
83 Fortmann immigrant to US in 1830 from Bragel, Germany. Highly probable Heinrich departed from Bremen. Bremen burned all its passenger records in 1870. Heinrich travels into Auglaize County Ohio in 1830. Probable point of entry, New York, landing at Castle Garden.Probably took Erie Canal passage to Buffalo and then sailed to Ohio Port. If a member of Gross or Kleinefortmann lineage the link is before 1721. A link in the 1349 (Black Plague) to 1700's is very probable. And, since the Gross - Kleinefortmann branches of Sudlohne, Germany (2.4 miles S of Lohne can be traced to 1530 it may be possible to trace the lineage of Herman Heinrich Fortmann through St Gertrud's Kirch Records.

 
Fortmann Herman Henrich
 
84 Herman Heinbrich Fortmann would have known his Grossfortmann & Kleinefortmann Cousins because they all attended St Gertrud's Catholic Church, Lohne and his birthplace Bragel is only 2.4 miles NE (heading 062 degr.)from Sudlohne. He is related via earlier generations to the Sudlohne Grossfortmann & KleineFortmann's lines. Fortmann Herman Henrich
 
85 Not a known relative of Heinrich or Clemens Fortmann. data from IGI Individual Records on Family Search. org. Fortmann Herman Henrich
 
86 Occupation: Farmer Fortmann Johannes, a.k.a. John Henry II
 
87 Some have said that John Henry II and his family were "a pecular bunch.......it seemed like they grew up mad at each other and went their seperate ways and forgot about each other.
The only one that wasn't a true Fortmann was Uncle Phil, he seemed to care about his brothers and sisters and their families and visited them regularly.

German's are hard-headed and seldom admit they are wrong. A famous saying of that generaton was "the door swings both ways and don't let it hit you on the way out"

Excerpts from Carol Kelsey of Ohio, 2/24/2010

92 A Greenhouse man, 4099 N. Robey St, Evanston, IL. abt 1870 Fortmann Nicholas
 
93 The 1880 New Trier US Census, p. 16 shows Nicholas, age 20, living in New Trier at the residence of his 1st Cousin, Joseph Lauermann and his family of four.
Joseph Lauermann is shown as a shop-keeper and since Nicholas's Father Clemens was killed accidentily in 1871 it is highly probable that Nicholas was sent by his Mother, Maria Catherina, nee: Lauermann to work at the store with his Cousin Joseph.

96 After marrying at age 25 Clemens resides, with his family, on his brother, John Henry Joseph Fortmann's farm on Robie St. at age 27. It is 1851. Shockingly Clemens, age 47, is accidently killed when the axle on his wagon breakes as he is shoveling into it. The wheel crushes him under a load of Schwein-Schiebs. He leaves an 8 1/2 month pregnant wife and 9 children and a brother Heinrich living next door. Fortmann [a Kleine] Clemens (I) August Ludwig
 
97 Brothers Heinrich (Henry I) and Clemens farm several non-adjacent pieces of land, just west of Ridge Trail, in Ridgeville, Illinois. They acquire a second piece on 17 April 1851 via Warranty Deed from John Wender (Johann Zender in Germany's records).......the transaction is recorded 24 April 1854.

Prior to this.

John H. J. Fortman (Johannes Heinrich Joseph Fortmann (Henry I)) bought several acres of land, along Robie St (Damen Ave)in Ridgeville, Illinois in his name only on 1 Sep 1849 from John Wagner and Wife. This couple is his brother-in-Law and sister-in-law. The deed is recorded 17 years later on 29 Jun 1866.

John H. J. (Henry I) marries Catherine Lauermann 29 Jan 1846 at St. Joe's in Wilmette and his first Son John Henry (II)is born Nov 1850.

Clemens marries Maria Catherina Lauermann 20 Nov 1848 at St Joe's and his first daughter Katherine is born 25 Oct 1850.

These men are marrying sisters and it is now known from pre-Chicago 1871 Great Fire records that John H. J.'s land purchase is from his brother-in-law, John Wagner and sister-in-law, Barbara Lauermann.

The best man of both brothers is Anton Haskamp whose brother married a Fortmann sister in Germany.  
Fortmann [a Kleine] Clemens (I) August Ludwig
 
98 1850 US Census: Clemens is indexed as: Clemen A. Ludwick. Born in Germany a bt. 1824.
1869 US Census: No record of Clemens, or Heinrich. 
Fortmann [a Kleine] Clemens (I) August Ludwig
 
99 1870 US Census, Evanston, Cook, Illinois, page: 134; Dwelling 406, Familt 445, Clement Fortman household. Fortmann [a Kleine] Clemens (I) August Ludwig
 
100 Clemens August Ludwig's father is cited in the Lohne Catholic Church, St Gertrud, register as Franz Ludwig LANDWETER. (Other records indicate his name as LANDWEHR.....this is most probably what it was.) This name refers to the occupation of soldiering, was in common usage in Germany until after the 2nd WW. German Landwehr units were exstensively use by Napoleon between 1800 and 1810. Fortmann [a Kleine] Clemens (I) August Ludwig
 
101 Clemens buys a strip of land along Ridge Trail, in Ridgeville, Illinois with his brother Heinrich on 17 April 1851 via Warranty Deed from John Wender (Johann Zender in Germany's records)........the transaction is recorded 3 years later on 24 April 1854.

John H. J. Fortmann (Johannes Heinrich Joseph Fortmann), Clemens older brother, buys a large tract of land along Robie St (just west of Ridge Trail)in Ridgeville, Illinois in his name only on 1 Sep 1849 from John Wagner and wife. This deed is recorded 17 years later on 29 Jun 1866.

Remember, Henry Ist (John H.J.) married Catherina Lauermann 29 Aug 1846. Catherina's dowery rights are not protected in this transaction but she does not seem to mind or the title would have had both their names.

John H. J. is married at St Joseph's Catholic Church on 29 Jan 1846 and his first child, Son John Henry, is baptised 20 Nov 1850 by Rev. Heinrich Fortmann.

Clemens marries at St Joseph's on 20 Nov 1848. His first child and daughter Catherine is born abt 18 Oct 1850 and is baptised 21 Oct 1850.

These men are marrying Lauermann Sisters and it appears that John H. J.'s land purchase is from his brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Barbara Lauermann.

The brother's are married by Rev. Joseph Henry Fortmann of St. Joseph's Catholic Church in New Trier, Illinois in the presence of John Lauermann the girls father who owns Lauermann General Store on Ridge Road in New Trier. 
Fortmann [a Kleine] Clemens (I) August Ludwig
 
102 Clemens is the 1st of his family to be interred in the 9 plot burial site he purchased 10 years earlier in 1864. St. Henry's Cemetery is now adjacent to the magnificent German Gothic Catholic Church, built in 1925. In Clemens time it was a small one room single story wooden Church with Mass said in German on alternating Sundays. Fortmann [a Kleine] Clemens (I) August Ludwig
 
103 Clemens is the youngest of 6 children. The youngest 3 shall migrate to America in 1839. Fortmann [a Kleine] Clemens (I) August Ludwig
 
104 Clemens Mother and Father were probably influenced in their name choice of "Clemens August" by munsterschen Lord Bishop Clemens August von Bavaria (1719-1761) whose name also appears at the door of the Cathederal of Munsterand. Lohne's Catholic Church was named after St Gertrud.
.......The Fortman's are of the Cheruscian Tribe of the Teutoburg Forest around Lohne. From 9 CE to the middle ages they were known as "the Son of" or Daughter of".
.......Names took on a different character as the village "Trades" developed in the Middle Ages and personal distinction became more important.
.......The Fortmann name was coined originally in the 1200's and referred to the trade of water-ferry men.
.......In the next centuries their children moved on to farming as peasants and remained in the forests and small pastures around Lohne raising oats, rye, pigs and steers.
.......As traditional Catholics, they believed in the ritual practices of their Church. Clemens parents, Franz and Catharina, recorded the baptizism their 6 newborns at Lohne's Catholic Church, St Gertrud and their marriage was recorded there on 3 Nov 1807. .......Regrettably, the Register of Deaths of Lohne's Catholic Church has been lost over the decades. 
Fortmann [a Kleine] Clemens (I) August Ludwig
 
105 Marrying at age 24 in St Joseph's Catholic Church in New Trier (now Wilmette)Il., Clemens initially resides with his wife on his brother, John Henry Joseph Fortmann's Farm on Robie St.
.......Shockingly, 20 years later, now in his neighboring home, Clemens at 47, is accidently killed when the axel breaks on his wagon as he is shoveling Schwein-Scheibs into it. The wagon wheel crushes him under the load.
.......He leaves an 8 1/2 month pregnant wife with 8 children. His brother Heinrich who lives next door will become the guiding Uncle. 
Fortmann [a Kleine] Clemens (I) August Ludwig
 
106 The Catholic Church records of Lohne begin 10 Feb. 1683 under "Pastor Suttholt". Records before this date have disappeared.
......The manuscripts of Pastore Bernhard Topp (1710-1756) and Heinrich Bernhard Topp (1756-1808) leave much to be desired. The greatest problem being the lack of distinction between families of the same name.
......The Catholic Church Office of Vechta records many families of the same name.... as is also the case in Lohne. The earliest records record 2 peasant families of Fortmann's, as well as the: Bruning's, Krimpenfort's, Kreymborg's, Kalvelage's, Zerhausen's, Bokern's. These are old families without further distinguishing names.
......The Lohne Parish encompassed many villages with distances up to 30 miles to the Catholic Church at Lohne. Going to Church for a marriage or baptism or funeral was a significant event. 
Fortmann [a Kleine] Clemens (I) August Ludwig
 
107 Rev. Joseph Heinrich (Henry) Fortmann was probably ordained by the Bishop of Hannover in Germany about 1818. He was a young man from the SudLohne area of Vecta Province. The Bishop of the Catholic Cathederal in Munster, while closer to Lohne was not the responsible Bishop for Lohne. The Bishop of Osnabruck was Protestant since the Reformation in 1555. And thus it was that the Bishop of Hannover, a cleric under the jurisdiction of an Archbishop of Prussia) most probably ordained Joseph Heinrich. A search of the bishop's ordination records of this period might uncover Rev. J. Heinrich's ordination. The Bishop of this period was under the direction of the Prussian State's Church heirchy. Joseph Heinrich probably migrated to the United States in the late 1830's or early 1840's. He probably came at the request of parishoners seeking a Priest from their home villages in Germany. He would be from from the GrosFortmann lineage. He was Pastor of St Joseph's, Wilmette from 1846 to 1852 and later appointed Pastor of St Mary's in Buffalo Grove, Illinois.

 
Fortmann [Gross] Franz Joseph Henry (?) Rev.
 
108 This Henry (Heinrich) Fortman is identified in the 22 Aug 1850 US Census as a 48 year old farmer in New Trier.
He is not a known family member.
The $150 value of his farm suggests he has 60 acres.
There is no sign of a wife or children with him.
Could he 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)
Might he also be the Pastor of St. Joseph's Catholic Church from 1847 to 1852?
All were named "Henry Fortmann" The Probability is these are all the same man. 
Fortmann [Gross] Franz Joseph Henry (?) Rev.
 
109 Anton Fortmann became the Teacher ("Lherer in Sudlohne)" of the Sudlohn, Germany School in 1791 following the death of Herbert Polking. Fortmann [Gross] Heinrich Anton, father of Rev Franz Joseph
 
110 Heinrich Anton was the father of Rev Franz Josef Pastor of St Joseph's Parish in New Trfier, Illinois in 1849 who marries the FGortmann boys, Clemens and Heinrich to the Lauermann Girls. Fortmann [Gross] Heinrich Anton, father of Rev Franz Joseph
 
111 Godparents: Johann Herman Polking and Anna Maria Fortmann Fortmann [Gross] Hermann Anton
 
112 Heuermann Bei Polking Fortmann [Gross] Johann
 
113 Johann Josef Fortmann, b. 1 Jul 1799, became Headmaster of the Sudlohne School in 1817 after the death of Anton Fortmann in 1816. He remained the only teacher until his death in 1856.
During this period Josef was teacher to Anna Maria Fortmann, b. 1815 and her younger brothers: Johann Heinrich Fortmann, b. 1819 and Clemens August Ludwig Fortmann, b. 1824.

These 3 children were the ancestors of David Fortman, (this writer) and David's ancestor was Clemens Fortmann who died on the Ridgeville, aka Evanston, aka Chicago Fortmann farm in 1871 when the axel on his wagon load of Schwein-Shibes broke, thus crushing him to death. 
Fortmann [Gross] Johann Josef
 
114 1850 US Census: Heinrich is indexed as: Henry Herdman; Born in Germany abt 1817 (actually 15 Sep 1815) Fortmann [Kleine] Johannes Heinrich (a.k.a Henry Ist ) Joseph
 
115 Birth # 77 in the year 1815
Baptismal Witnesses:
.......Henrick Joseph von der Ems

Fortmann [Kleine] Johannes Heinrich (a.k.a Henry Ist ) Joseph
 
116 Land records held by Property Insight LLC show that John H. J. Fortman (Johannes Heinrich Joseph Fortmann)purchased a substantial tract of land in Ridgeville, Illinois on September 1, 1849. He received a Quit Claim Deed from John Waggoner (Wagner) and Wife. This deed was recorded 17 years later on 29 June 1866

On April 17, 1851 he and his brother Clemens August Ludwig jointly purchase a strip of land from John Wender and Wife. This is John Zender who, in 1842, married Maria Anna Schmidt, daughter of Johannes Peter Schmitt aka Schmidt aka Smith. This deed is recorded 3 years later on 24 Apr 1854. 
Fortmann [Kleine] Johannes Heinrich (a.k.a Henry Ist ) Joseph
 
117 Marriage records of St Mary's Church, Chicago show a John Waggoner and Barbara Lauermann marrying Oct 29 1843.

We see Clemens Fortmann marrying Maria Katherina Lauermann on 20 Nov 1848.

We see Clemens brother John Heinrich (Henry) Joseph Fortmann marrying Catherine Lauermann on 29 Jan 1846.

It suggests that John Wagner and Barbara Lauermann sell some of their land to John Henry Joseph Fortmann who is Barbara's brother-in Law. Family ties are very close in the German community!!  
Fortmann [Kleine] Johannes Heinrich (a.k.a Henry Ist ) Joseph
 
118 A Gardner, at 4143 N Robey St abt. 1870 Fortmann [Kleine] Johannes Heinrich (a.k.a Henry Ist) Joseph

120 Land records of Property Insight LLC record that John H. J. Fortman (Johannes Heinrich Joseph Fortmann) purchased a substantial tract of land in Ridgeville, along the future Robie St., to Western Ave and south of Pratt Ave. on September 1, 1849.

Three years later, on April 17, 1851 He and his brother Clemens August Ludwig purchase a strip of land from John Wender and Wife. This is probably John Zender and his wife Maria Anna Schmitt aka Schmidt aka Smith, who married in 1842 and who was the daughter of Johannes Peter Schmitt aka Schmidt aka Smith. She is shown on her Father's 1840 Passport issue in Trier Germany.
