I'm descended from a Friedrich Wilhelm Landwehr (1810-1858) and Anna Maria
Ilsabein Bonsen (1816-1899) family who came from Joellenbeck, Minden,
Prussia (near Bielefeld) to Franklin County, Missouri, in 1859, by way of
New Orleans and St. Louis.
I published a book about my Landwehr family in 1986 (Landwehr and Allied
Families). The book also documented my Lefmann, Bottemueller,
Broemmelsieck, Thiekoetter, Lichte, Guese, and Bonsen families in Prussia
and Franklin County, Missouri. I'm not looking for any information at this
point, but thought I would monitor the list, to see if I might help any
other Landwehrs with their research.

My g-g-grandfather, Rudolph Thomas was married to a Helena K. or Catherine Thomas (nee: Landwher). They resided in Baltimore. Helena's dead certificate lists a R. Landwher from Germany as her father. Her date of death was 02/05/1908. I don't know if she is related but, my grandfather Rudolph arrived in Baltimore Sept 1845. He was single at the time.
The following is a listing from a book I believe was entitled, "Baltimore Street Names, and who their named for".
The following is listed in the book as follows and is provided for your info:
>From the 2300 Block of Frederick Avenue north and south
Just west of the west end of Pratt Street, and north of Frederick is Landwher Lane, yet another monument to a hard-working German. John H. arrived in 1832, a mere child. His dad disappeared, and he went to work in a hog bristle factory when he was six or seven. Profits from a grain mill set him up in the business of home development. When his neighborhood was annexed in 1888, the city named a street from him.
