                    Littlemeyer - "A Story of 7 brothers Lütkemeyer aka Luetkemeyer"

   7 Lütkemeyer / Luetkemeyer brothers came to America. They arrived on a Ship that docked in New Orleans, La., sometime after July 24th, 1841 and before 24 July 1842. While disembarking from the ship the brothers became separated from the youngest brother, (who was only 12 yrs. old). They lost site of him in the crowds and they never saw him again.      Heinrich Franz Lütkemeyer, was born on 24 Jul 1824, in Oldendorf, County Minden, The Kingdom Of Prussia. He arrived in the U.S. with 6 of his brothers. He was 17 years old. The spelling of their surname, his birth place and date were found on the Baptismal Certificate of his son, Wilhelm Freidrich "Fritz" Luetkemeyer aka William Fredrick "Fritz" Littlemeyer. This document is written in Old German.

  William Fredrick "Fritz" Littlemeyer was baptized Wilhelm Freidrich Luetkemeyer in 1872 at St. Stephen's Evangelical Lutheran Church, Barnes Settlement, Massac Co., IL..    Later, a chair company came to Metropolis. This company was known as "Bender" and Later "Bebee Tenda Company" it was owned by "Heinrich Wilhelm LUETKEMEYER", who's features where similar to the Littlemeyer's. George, Fritz, and John, talked of checking with this man to see if he was their long lost Uncle. George (the most outgoing of them) agreed to go talk to him. But a week later George was run over by a train, which cut off both his legs, resulting in his death. It took a few years for Fritz and John to go talk to this very important man in their town. When they finally decided to go, it was too late. The man had died. His son had taken over the company, the son said he was adopted and did not know anything of his father's past or family. He may have thought they were gold diggers just looking for a piece of the company, which had become the biggest enterprise in Metropolis. So, he played dumb, or maybe he really didn't know.       In the early 1850's of the brothers started using LITTLEMEYER instead of LüTKEMEYER / LUETKEMEYER.
