I have been researching the Kossmann name for a little while now. The furtherest I have gone back so far is to Joseph Kossmann and Juliana Groesch who married 6 Oct 1834 in Niederhausen, Baden, Germany. They had at least 4 confirmed children and I suspect several more. One of their children were Xavier Franz Kossmann born abt 1849. He immigrated to the US in 1866 and again returned to stay in 1868 and settled in Brooklyn, NY to run a butchers shop. His older rother Jacob was already in Brooklyn, NY by that time. His first wife was Anna Maria Fessler and his second wife was Elisabeth Zimmermann. My family is a descendent of this Xavier. Family stories say he was one of 7 brothers to come to the US, I have confirmed 2 brothers so far and found the record of a birth for a sister. I would like to hear from other Kossmann researchers.
