Looking for more info on Henry Clamor Spellman and his son, Clamor Henry Spellman from the Kingdom of Hannover, Prussia. Henry Spellman is my ggg-grandfather. He was born abt 1786 in Germany and came to the US in 1835 thru Baltimore. Settled in Scioto county, Ohio. Clamor Henry Spellman was born in Germany in 1817 and came with his parents to this country. From Ohio they moved to Clayton county Iowa then to Nebraska about mid 1860's, where they settled in the Centerville precinct area. The elder Spellman I think possibly died in Ohio, but Clamor's mother came to Nebraska. Her's was the first grave in the Centerville cemetery. Clamor Spellman (also referred to as Henry in many reference that I have come across) married in Ohio to a Elanora Reller in abt 1847. They had several children born in Ohio, their son Henry Clamor Spellman, b. 1857 is my great-grandfather. I also have info that there were other relatives with them in Ohio, but do not know exactly what the relationship was. There was an Adolf Spellman and wife and an Eliza, possibly a daughter to Adolf. I would like to find out more about where they came from in Germany and if there were more family members that came with them to the US. I have names and dates of other children of my gg-grandfather, Clamor H. Spellman. Would be glad to share information or give to anyone looking for infomation on this Spellman family.
