Descendants of Hans David Bielman of
the Duchy of Wurttemburg


Generation #2

Conrad B. (1Hans David) Bielman of Pennsylvania

Conrad B. Bielman was born 6/16/1740 in Bucks (now Lehigh) Co PA. Note, Conrad is the first Bielman who regularly used the Americanized spelling Billman.

As previously stated for father Hans David, the Billman family were pioneers to the Pennsylvania frontier of Allemangle on the south shoulder of the Blue Mountains where the family lived in danger of Indian attack and animal predation.

Research Note: Allemangle was the ethnic German community situated on the border of northeast Berks county and northwest Bucks/ Northampton/ Lehigh county (vic. Kempton PA). And, records for residents of Allemangle can be found in either county depending on which township they lived in: Lynn and Weisenberg TWP in Lehigh and Albany TWP in Berks.

In 1759 in Northampton (now Lehigh) Co PA, Conrad married Johanna Catharina Grimm b. 12/12/1739 Bucks Co PA. Conrad and Catherine are cited as the progenitors of all of the Billmans who migrated to the State of Ohio.

On 9/29/1795 Conrad purchased a farm in Toboyne Township, Cumberland (now Perry) Co PA. This marks the family's migration west of the Susquehanna River. And, compared to other migrations, this would have been a relatively easy stroll down the southern shoulder of Blue Mountain to Harris Ferry then across the river.

Conrad and Catherine lived the remainder of their lives on the farm in the vicinity of New Germantown PA. Conrad died 3/10/1798 in Cumberland (now Perry) Co PA and is believed to be buried on the family farm.

Anna Catherina Bensinger was christened at Allemangel 17 Nov 1767.
Conrad BEILMAN and his wife, Catherine were sponsors.
