Other Schramm family members and relatives who came to Beaver County from Betschdorf are:

  • Theobald Schramm, Jacob Frederick's brother, and his family in 1835
  • Maria Salome Schramm (nee Holtzman), who was Frederick's mother in 1835. Frederick's father died before they emigrated.
  • Anna Eva Goehring (nee Stiller), widow of Friederick's brother, Christian, who had married a second time to Jacob Goehring.


Family Origins and History

The oldest known records of the family are in Fautsbach, Germany.

Johann Christian Schramm, grandson of Andreas, moved to Betschdorf in the Alsace region of France, probably sometime in the first half of the 1780's. At that time, Betschdorf consisted of the two separate communities of Oberbetschdorf and Niederbetschdorf. The first record of the Schramm family in Betschdorf is the marriage record of Joh. Christian Schramm on October 16, 1786, at the Evangelical Church in Oberbetschdorf to Maria Salomea Holtzmann. The record states that the Schramm family came from Fautspach in W├╝rttemburg, and that both Christian, and his father Friederich, were carpenters.

In the 1830's, members of the Schramm family began leaving Betschdorf for America.
