Welcome to our website. We hope you will find a link to our family and help us grow. We have lost track of a few of our lines and would dearly love finding new family connections. So far, we have found linen weavers, butchers, shoemakers, postmasters, saloon keepers, printers, lawyers, music teachers, firemen and even a Hudson River boatman. We have veterans from the Civil War, WWI and WWII. Many of our ancestors came from Ireland and Germany in the mid-1800s, fleeing famine, war and religious strife. Please email me if you would like to know more or have any related information.

  • Richard Dishman b. 1846 d. 1919 (35 KB)
    My great-great grandfather was Richard Dishman, the first child of Henry Dischmann and Frederica Jung of Germany -- he was the oldest of six children and a first generation American. According to his National Archives military records it appears he served in two different regiments in the Union Army in the Civil War. He had 8 children with his wife, Mary E. Walsh and lived in Red Hook, Brooklyn. (Picture from the files of Pat Tighe Sheridan--second cousin descended from Richard's first-born child Margaret. My line descended from Richard's 3rd son, Henry Francis Dishman.) --Nellie
