Looking for parent information on Frederick William Ohmen (sometime referred to as William Frederick Ohmen) 1832-1919.  He was born in King of Prussia and married to Caroline Wilhelmina Schmitz (1836-1907) and known as Minnie.  Some evidence Caroline was born in Westbarthausen, Westfalen, Deutschland.  Any information on Frederick‚Äôs parents or his marriage date to Caroline (thought to be around 1857 and prior to his and her immigration to the US around 1858) would be appreciated.  My German is lacking for records reviews.

Question: was Frederick born in Prussia, or King of Prussia, which is a town in Pennsylvania. As your question is written, it is unclear, as you state he immigrated in 1858.

Have you looked for a death certificate for him? This may provide an answer.
I have found no death certificate for him and newspapers do not give any additional information in covering his death.  His wife, Wilhelmina Caroline Schmitz, was from Prussia, and most docments list his birth as simply being in Prussia, although he gives his immigration date as 1858 and his birth as being in Germany in the 1900 US Census.  One suspects he lived near Westbarthausen, Westfalen, Deutschland where his wife was born.  Indeed the Hannover Germany Lutheran Baptism, Marriages & Burials 1684-1892 list a Friedr Wm Ohmann as being born on 22 Feb 1831 in Westbarthausen, Westfalen, Deutschland.  Were it not for the date difference I would say this was him...and it could be still.  Other information, such as a marriage certificate/date have been undiscoverable for me.  Thanks for the reply.
