Migration of the Dedmar family to the New World and Oceana
Thousands of German settlers came to North America between the mid-17th and mid-20th centuries. The hardships of the long voyage were balanced by the opportunity to escape poverty and religious persecution. The descendents of these settlers still populate the states of Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Many also live in Ontario and the prairie provinces of Canada. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Dedmar or a variant listed above: Charles Detmar, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1868; Carl Dettmer, age 37, who settled in Marlborough, Massachusetts in 1777; Conradina Dettmer, age 20, who settled in Texas in 1845.
