Uffman Family Genealogy Forum
I am of the Baton Rouge Uffmans. My great-grandfather moved here from Kirkwood, Missouri. After his death, it was revealed to my grandfather and his brother that he was in fact a twin. Their parents could only send one son to America at that time and so they were split up before the war. He dropped the last "N" when he came over. From family research, we were able to locate the brother, now deceased, but his line owns the Landhaus Uffmann in Germany. My grandfather has 5 sons, and 5 male grandchildren, 10 female, and there are as of now 9 great-grandchildren with 2 more on the way. 2 brothers have now moved to North Carolina. For Christmas last year we received a family tree that was collaborated between the 2 families. I haven't had time to research, but will when I have the time. Somewhere along the line it was said, I believe by my grandfather, the name "Uffmann" had something to do with a trumpet or horn. Anyone have any info on that?
