The family came from Gross-Biberau, Grand duchy of Hessen, and located in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, later they went to Pittsburgh, and finally came to Quincy in the spring of 1834. They soon settled down near Mill Creek in Melrose Township, where they went to farming. In 1851 William Andrew Herlemann died of the cholera, and later his wife followed him in death.
