Surnames: Grauerholtz, Heims
Ancestor John Harmon Grauerholtz was supposedly born in Dorverden on 14 March 1838 to parents Hermann Grauerholtz and Dorothea Heims.
Paternal grandparents were supposedly Herman Hinrich Grauerholtz (b. 1751 in Graue, Asendorf, Hanover, d. 10 July 1822 in Dorverden) and Anna Ilse Gesche Nordholz (b. 18 Feb. 1756, d. 19 Mar. 1817).

I would very much appreciate it if anyone could verify this information. Also, I would be very interested to learn if John Harmon Grauerholtz had any siblings.

Thank you.

Richard Nelson

That would be wonderful!
John Harmon was my wife's great-grandfather. He came to the U.S. and fought in the Civil War in a unit from New York. He later moved to Chicago and finally to Cedar Rapids/Marion, Iowa.
I would very much appreciate any help that you can give me.

I hired a researcher a few years ago. I have the names and birth dates of 11 children of Johann Hermann Heinrich Graurholz and Dorthea Heims. I can also go back a ways as you can see from my family tree.

I would love to compare information.
