Richard Wiskeman, son of William Frederick and Henrietta Goehring Wiskeman, was raised in western Pennsylvania. He was married to (Margaret) Pearl Campbell and had five children, none of which still lives in the home state. We understand any like sounding names are all related. Nonetheless we are anxious to know more of our relatives. The Wiskemans originally came from Germany and some from Belgium. Father of William Frederick Wiskemann was Johan Wilhelm, son of George Andreas and Luisa Krugin Wiskemann. Johan Wilhelm came to U.S. in 1846 at age 21. He married Amalie Pollert (Pollard) daughter of an American Indian, and Johan Freidreick Pollard who came from Germany. We have Amalie's picture, and death date, but nothing more of her family. Currently we have found sir-names from many states but cannot find the family linages. If you are related to any Wiskeman, please e-mail us so we can arrange to "squeeze" any history from you. We know of historic connections to Eastern PA.and MI, N.Y., and Frisco, but cannot find the family histories. We are happy to share what we know. Hope you can share with us. We hear the name originally started with Von. ???
