Herman Gerhard's Ancestors

We believe every Ratterman in the Cincinnati area believes that all Rattermans located there are related but haven't  found the proof.

With the aid of information from Matt Ratterman, son of the famous George Ratterman, Andreas Landwehr, author of the German website,  "The family tree Ratermann, Ankum" ,

and information from Heinrich Armin(ius) Rattermann's
(H A), biographies, we have important information. We now know the common ancestors of three branches, ours, (Herman Gerhard's),  the 'George' branch and now the 'H A' branch.
