SANTELMAN(N) FAMILY HISTORY

Very little is known about the wife of the author’s maternal lines.  Eleanor (Santelman) Thede, the author’s mother-in-law was the first Santelman(n) family member that was born in America and has only two children and two grandchildren.  Adding to this, Eleanor Santelman was the only child of the immigrant, Friedrich Santelmann.  Friedrich Santelmann was the only known Santelmann family member to immigrate to America.  Therefore, the entire American Santelmann line consists of only five members.  Eleanor (Santelman) Thede and her family visited German relatives in the 1950’s and Philip Schmidt visited Eleanor (Santelman) Thede in Michigan in the mid 1970’s.
