De onderstaande vraag ontving ik uit Arizona, zijn er data en correcte namen te vinden van emigratie en geboorte van  dit gezin?



Karl/Charles F. Caveman  b: 1820-1822 Hanover, Lower Saxony, Germany


Hendrick/Henry Caveman b:  12 Sep 1825 Hanover, Lower Saxony, Germany


John Frederick Caveman b: 03 Jan 1928 Oldenberg, Lower Saxony Germany


Karl died at a young age so I don’t have any idea when he emigrated but the younger brothers emigrated between 1842 and 1843.  I never found any emigration record.  Their mother was here in 1860 and I have no idea when she emigrated because the early Census did not ask that question.


In the early years they spelled the name: Kavermann, Kaverman, Kaveman, Kaferman and

Later the names were Caveman, Cavemann, Caverman and even Caseman.



The parents as the sons remembered their names on the Death Certificate when they died –

So hopefully the informant was correct.


Johannes Hendrik Kaufman b: between 1792-1800 – that was my guess.  I think he died and that is when the boys headed for America.  The Kaufman also has several spellings.


Mary Elizabeth Pohlmann b: 1800 Oldenberg, Germany

She was Elizabeth Kaveman, age 60 (1800) born Oldenberg, Germany – living with son John Frederick and his family in the 1860 Census.  No death record found for her but I have written to the cemetery where her son John Fred. is buried and I am waiting for an answer.


Karl/Charles F. Caveman – I guessed he could be Karl in Germany – other spellings. He was buried as Carl.


Hendrick/Henry Caveman – I guessed on the Hendrick too but there are other spellings.


John Frederick Caveman – he never changed his name on any record other than the surname.


Bij voorbaat dank
