Are John Wiedeman and George Wiedemann related? Kentucky 1833-1865
Was Johann WIEDEMAN of Louisville Kentucky related to George WIEDEMANN of Newport Kentucky, founder of the Wiedemann Brewing Company?
Johann was born 1830 Wiener Germany and immigrated via Baltimore Maryland in 1843. There is no record of him immigrating with other relatives. His marriage to Rosa Kuntz is recorded in the St Paul's Evangelical Church records for 1959, Other Wiedeman's are recorded. However it is in old german script which I cannot read. John died in 1865 and is buried in Cave Hill Cemetery.
George was born 1833 Eisenach Germany and immigrated 1846. George worked in a Louisville, Kentucky brewery for a short while until he moved to Newport. He partnered with John Butcher to form the Butcher-Wiedemann Brewery. When John retired in the 1870's, George formed the George Wiedemann Brewing Company. The Brewery was the lifeblood of Newport Kentucky for over one-hundred years.
