Palatine German Pioneers - Bellinger
DECKMANN aka DEGMAN Palatine FamilyAccording to Renate Blum who sent me information on the Deckmann family from Germany, the name Deckmann is very unique in Germany. It has its origin in the profession of the coverlet-maker in Germany called Deckenmacher. The town where Peter Deckmann lived was called Bleichenbach and it was in Hessen near of Frankfurt. The villages Nidda and Bleichenbach, as well as Langenselbold and Glauberg are very close together, and it is here my Deckmann line originated. I descend from Anna the daughter of Johann Conradt Deckmann & Juliana Stroh while Renate descends from Anna's brother Johannes b about 1655 d 2. May 1721 who married Susanna Emerich. My branch went to New York as Palatines in 1709; Renate's branch went to Hungary in 1722.
GENERATION 1: Peter Deckmann (born 1580 in Broburg in the dukedom of Jülich died 1630) married on 4 Dec. 1604 in Nidda Anna Heuser, daughter of Hans Heuser. Anna died 15 Mar. 1652 in Nidda. He was an inhabitant of Nidda in 1622 with children Johann, Barbara, Dorothea. Barbara married Nicolaus Windecker 30 Jan. 1648. She was buried in Nidda 12.Dec. 1686.
