Be careful with Prussia as place of origin! What existed as Prussia in 1871 was much larger than that before 1866. So a birth in 1855 in Prussia of 1871 could have been in Hanover, just as an example. Try to find a town or at least the Prussian province he was from.

Herrmann, along with my other surnames for Germans of the 1700s and 1800s, is a quite common name. If we are to assist you, can you please add any substantive information to your question?

The son of Adam and Regina is Martin C. Herrmann . He was born on may 4 1855 in Prussia.    He came to the United states in November 1871 on the ship thuringia .  He married Louisa Fuhrmann and lived in new haven ct. He died in 1929 of pneumonia
That's good, and I trust you've put that information on Adam Herrman's page, and created Martin C's. Would you know any dates (marriage, death, or location in prussia and in the US? Did he come in at Ellis Island, for instance (NY,NY is what's listed). and the specific date of death (dod)?

My great-great grandfather was Jacob Herrmann. He came from Germany in the 1800's and settled in Grand Rapids, MI.  He owned a construction business - Jacob Herrmann and Sons.  Jacob willed the business to his oldest son Leo - but when Jacob died, Leo's brothers cut him off from owning the business.  Leo was my great- grandfather.  This is on my mom's side - her mother Rosemary Herrmann-Brillinger was the daughter of Leo and grand daughter of Jacob.  I am not sure if Adam and Jacob are related.
