John Damm of Germany and Some of his Descendants

Last Updated 15 December, 2006 

Generation No. 1

      @1.  John1 Damm was born in Germany, and died Unknown.  He married Rebecca ---.  She was born in Germany, and died Unknown.

Notes for John Damm:

It appears that several children of John and Rebecca went first to England and later to Boston.   The association of the children to John is based either on an overt reference in a vital record or else is based on the individual's proximity to other known individuals in the US census records of 1860-1880.

One common denominator for many of these children is their association with the family of Christopher Noll.  Michael Damm was married to Christopher's sister Katherine and lived in the same house as Christopher in Boston in 1860.  Both Christopher and Michael's family lived, and many of their children were born in England,.  John Dame lived, in 1880 in a house also occupied by Christopher's son Charles N Noll.  William lived very near his sister-in-law Margaret Damm and next door to the Noll family in 1880.

Notes for John Dame:

John appears in the 1880 US Census living in Boston, aged 50 in a rooming house on Pope's Court with wife Elizabeth aged 40 and children Katharina aged 19 and William aged 17.  All were born in Prussia.  Also living with them at this address is Charles N Noll, son of Christopher Noll aged 30 and his wife Emma and their children.  It is because of his connection to Charles Noll that I have associated him with John and Rebecca Damm.

Notes for William Damm:

William is listed in the US Census records between 1860 and 1880 as living near Michael Damm.  After Michael's death, his widow Margaret is listed in City Directories as living at the same address as William.  His occupation is listed as musician.  Other than this, there is no overt evidence that William and Michael are related.

      @4.  Michael2 Damm (John1)8 was born Abt. 1831 in Germany, and died Abt. 1880.  He married (1) Katherine Noll 06 January 1852 in Derby, Derbyshire England9, daughter of --- Noll.  She was born Abt. 1833 in Germany, and died Bet. May 1858 - 15 February 1859.  He married (2) Margaret Kahl 15 February 1859 in Boston, Suffolk County Massachusetts10, daughter of Daniel Kahl and Elizabeth ---.  She was born Abt. August 1842 in France or Germany11, and died 19 May 1892 in Boston, Suffolk County Massachusetts11.

Notes for Michael Damm:

Michael spent some years in Derby, Derbyshire England, where  he married his first wife, Katharina Noll.  He does not appear in the British Census of 1851 and so probably arrived there shortly after this date.  The date of his second marriage in1859 in Boston, Suffolk County Massachusetts, coupled with the lack of any evidence of Michael in Boston before this time suggests that he probably arrived in the US shortly before this date.

There is a record of the arrival of one Michael Damm to New Orleans aboard the ship Franklin King on 26 December1854.  The passenger manifest indicates his age as 25, his point of departure Liverpool and his last residence Ireland.  There is some information that suggests that he may have lived with relatives in Boston, for we find several families with the Damm surname in Boston records in the 1860-1880 timeframe.

 The US Census of 1860 lists Michael living in Ward 1, aged 30- occupation musician, living with wife Margarit, aged 19 and children Henry, 9, Catherine, 8, Christina and Caroline, each aged 3 months and Christopher, aged 2..  It is fascinating that he seems to be living in a house that is occupied primarily by other musicians- whether Irish, German, or American12.

Detailed examination of passenger lists of ships arriving in Boston between 1 November 1854-February 1856 has so far failed to turn up any record of the arrival of the Damm family at the Port of Boston. (Ref:  NARA M277 Rolls 49-54)

Michael appears in the Boston, Massachusetts City Directory as "Michael Dame" beginning in 1861 living on North Street. He appears most years through 186513, then does not reappear until 1871. It was during this time he and his son Henry traveled to Germany, returning to New York in 1870 aboard the Ship Rhein.  In this passenger manifest, he lists his age as 40, and his home province as Hesse-Darmstadt.  His son Henry lists his age as 20.

The Census for 1870 does not list this family in Massachusetts, suggesting that the trip to Europe included the whole family.

In the 1880 Census, Margaret is listed in Ward 6 as a widow.  She has a son Peter, born in April 1880.

In the City Directory of 1880, Michael's wife Margaret is listed as a widow.

Living near him throughout his time in Boston is the family of Christopher Noll, probably brother of Michael's first wife.   Michael, William and Christopher Noll all listed their occupation as musician at one time or another.

 Notes for Margaret Kahl:

Margaret's parents are listed on her marriage record.

The US Census of 1860 shows Margaret living with her family in Ward 1 of East Boston, Suffolk County Massachusetts, aged 19.  She indicates she was born in Germany.

Margaret does not appear in the 1870 Census in East Boston.  She may have traveled to Germany with her husband, and returned to Boston after his death.

In the 1880 Census Margaret is listed living at 327 North Street, aged 37, born Prussia, a widow boarding with her friend Christopher Noll, aged 66 his wife Barbara, aged 54 and daughter Elizabeth Null (Noll), aged 24 (born in England).  With her are children Christina and Kate Dunn (Dame) aged 20 (servants), William 18 (musician), Mary 6, Elizabeth, 4, and Peter, aged 2 months (born in April).  Also living with her is her father Daniel Kyle, aged 75 born in Prussia14.

The curious 1888 entry in Boston VRs of the death of a child Margaret E Dame, aged 3 years daughter of Michael and Margaret both of Germany suggests that Michael was not dead in 1885 when this child would have been born. The address of this child is 430 Hanover Street, very close to the address of Margaret at the time of her death in 1892 (388 1/2 Hanover Street).   It is possible that there is another Michael and Margaret Dame of Germany living in Boston at this time.

The 1895 death record of her daughter Caroline indicates her name was Mary Margaret.

The 1905 death record of her daughter Mary indicates her last name was Keil.

      6.  Elizabeth2 Damm (John1) was born Abt. 1837 in Hesse Germany, and died Unknown.  She married (1) Frederick Schultz 21 July 1859 in Boston, Suffolk County Massachusetts27, son of Henry Schultz and Mary ---.  He was born Abt. 1838 in Hanover Germany, and died Unknown.  She married (2) William F Kaeser 28 December 1859 in Boston, Suffolk County Massachusetts28.  He was born Abt. 1835 in Germany, and died Unknown.

Notes for Elizabeth Damm:

There is confusion in the vital records concerning the marriage of Elizabeth Damm.  The original record (Mass VR V128 p138 indicates that she married William F. Kaiser on 28 December 1859.  An amended record was filed in 18 April 1860, however, that shows that Elizabeth married Frederick Shultz on 21 July 1859.  It is unclear why the error occurred, but according to the Mass Archives, the amended record would have superseded the original, and so we can only assume that Elizabeth's initial marriage was annulled or forbidden and her second, to Schultz, is the correct one.

In the 1870 US Census Elizabeth indicates she was born in Hesse.

Notes for Frederick Schultz:

Frederick, aged 22, cabinet maker and his wife Elizabeth, aged 27 appear in the 1860 US Census living in East Cambridge with child F M Shultz.

In the 1870 Census, Frederick, aged 33, Carpenter, is living in East Cambridge with wife Elizabeth, aged 32 and children William aged 10, Lizzie aged 8, John aged 5, Henry aged 3, and Augusta aged 11 months.  He indicates he was born in Hanover.

In the 1880 US Census, Frederick is living in Cook County, Illinois, furniture maker, aged 42 with wife Elizabeth, aged 44, and children (born in Mass unless otherwise noted) William aged 20, Lizzie aged 17 (born in England), John aged 15, Henry aged 13, Augusta aged 11, Emma aged 5 (born Illinois), and Caroline aged 3 (born in Illinois) 29.

Generation No. 3

      @17.  Christopher3 Dame (Michael2 Damm, John1) was born 01 May 1858 in Boston, Suffolk County Massachusetts32, and died of Tuberculosis 01 March 1907 in Boston, Suffolk County Massachusetts33.  He married Eva Schmidt 25 September 1881 in Boston, Suffolk County Massachusetts34, daughter of Casper Schmidt and Margaret ---.  She was born November 1860 in Paris, France35, and died 10 December 1936 in Boston, Suffolk County Massachusetts36.

Notes for Christopher Dame:

Christopher is listed in the US Census of 1860 as living with his family in Ward 1 East Boston, Suffolk County Massachusetts, aged 2.  His place of birth is listed as Boston, Suffolk County Massachusetts.

Neither Christopher nor his family appears in the 1870 Massachusetts Census.

Christopher does not appear in the Boston Census for 1880, although his widowed mother and half siblings do appear in Ward 6. 

In his 1881 Marriage record to Eva Schmidt, Christopher Dame is listed as being aged 23, from Boston, Massachusetts.  His parents are listed as Michael Damm and Margaret, born in Germany and residing in Boston, Massachusetts.

He appears in Boston in the 1882 edition of the Boston City Directory, where his residence is listed as 297 North Street.  In the1888 death record of his daughter, Carrie Dame, his address is listed as 307 Maverick Street.  In the 1900 directory and the 1900 US Census, his residence is listed as 39 New Street38.

The 1900 census lists Christopher as being born in May of 1858 in Mass.  His occupation is day laborer, and he indicates he has been unemployed for 5 months of the year.  He is literate.  His home is rented.

Christopher is not listed in the 1910 Census- his wife is listed as a widow.

Christopher's 1907 death record has him named Dane.  His mother is listed as Margaret Smith.

Given the date of birth stated by Christopher, and the date of his father's marriage to Margaret Keil in 1859, I must conclude that Christopher's mother was actually Catharina Noll.

More About Christopher Dame:

Burial: East Boston, Suffolk County Massachusetts37

Notes for Eva Schmidt:

Eva's marriage record shows her to be aged 20, born in Germany.  Her parents are Casper and Margaret.

The 1880 US Census for Portland Oregon shows an Eva Schmidt, aged 21 boarding along with William Schmidt., bookkeeper.  She was born in France.  The 1900 US Census shows William married to another woman, Louisa and in 1910 shows him as a divorced boarder.  If this is our Eva, it betrays a secret prior life that she never shared with her family.  It may explain, however, the utter lack of corroborating information around Eva's immigration and early life.

In the 1900 Census, Eva indicates that she was born in Germany in November, 1860.  She had 6 children, 4 living at the time of the census.  She arrived in the US in 1878.  She was literate.  Examination of passenger arrivals to Boston Massachusetts does not reveal anyone by her or her parents name as arriving in port.

The 1910 Census shows Eva, widow living at 231 Saratoga Street with her remaining family members.  Boarding with her is John Musky, aged 33.  This is the John J Nuskey who married Eva's daughter Emma.  In this entry she indicates she entered the US in 1871.

The 1920 US Census lists Eva, widow, living at 136 Marion Street, aged 57 with daughter Dorothy, aged 12 amd Emma Nuskey, aged 25.  Also living with the family is John J Nuskey, aged 43, boatman.  Eva indicates she was born in Germany, and spoke German.  Both parents were also German.  She is an alien39.

In the Boston Massachusetts City Directory for 1928, Eva is listed as a widow, living at 136 Marion Street, East Boston, Suffolk County Massachusetts40.

The 1930 US Census lists Eva, widow, living at 130 Marion Street, aged 68, with son William, aged 38 (married), daughter Emma, aged 36 (divorced), and daughter Dorothy, aged 26 (single).  Dorothy would actually be her grand daughter.

As a child, Anna Dame, Eva's Granddaughter, commonly shared a bed with her grandmother.  When she returned from Norway in 1936, she did so again due to insufficient room in her fatherís apartment.  One night, Anna was awakened by a vision of her grandmother standing by the foot of the bed. The next morning, she discovered that her grandmother had died during the night.

In trying to locate an immigration record for Eva, I found that the records for passenger ships arriving in Boston Massachusetts between 1873 and 1881 were missing or nonexistent. (Ref NARA Washington DC.)

According to NARA in Waltham, during the 19th century, an immigrant who married a US citizen would automatically become a US citizen herself. Consequently, no naturalization records can be expected, nor have any been found.

In the death record for her daughter Carrie Dame, Eva lists her place of birth as France.  Granddaughters Dorothy and Lillian indicate she was born in Paris, of German parents.  Lillian further recounts that Eva had to return to Germany as a consequence of the Franco-Prussian War of 1870.

Marriage Notes for Christopher Dame and Eva Schmidt:

Notes for John James Nuskey:

Jack "Pegleg" Nuskey became the Caretaker of Outer Brewster Island in 1925.  He lost the lower part of his right leg in a fishing accident, and walked with a cane.  Jack was the subject of a "dime novel" mystery by Edward Rowe Snowe about a treasure that was reportedly buried on Greater Brewster Island in Boston Harbor.  Family tradition holds that Jack's wife Emma was quite incensed by the implications that her husband may have been murdered, and pursued legal action against the author, to no avail.   In 1976, the compiler had a chance to discuss this story with Snow, who was at that time conducting tours around Boston Harbor.  Mr. Snow, true to his colorful nature, divulged additional mysterious circumstances that he was, as usual, unable to explain except by conspiratorial logic.  He was disarmingly entertaining.

John James Nuskey registered for the draft on 12 September 1918.  His entry shows he lived at 130 Marion Street in East Boston, was born 4 March 1876 and listed Emma Nuskey as next of kin.

In the 1930 US Census John Nuskey, aged 56, fisherman is living with his ex-wife Emma and her family at 130 Marion Street.  

Jack Nuskey was a fixture on Brewster Island, where many members of the Dame family spent their summer weekends in the 1920s and 1930s.  Wives and Children would come out to the island during the week.  Jack would meet the husbands at the wharf in his motor boat each Saturday afternoon and return them to the mainland each Sunday.

Family tradition holds that Jack drank heavily, and it was during one of his binges, while fishing at night in the harbor, that he met his death. He threw out his anchor, caught his wooden leg in the line and was pulled overboard.  He drowned under the boat, and was later found on the beach in Hull.  It was this event that triggered the Snow story.

The US Census for 1910 lists John Musky, aged 33 boarding in the home of Eva Dame and her family.  He lists his occupation as fisherman.  He indicates he was born in Germany85.

The Census for 1920 lists John J Nuskey, aged 43 living with wife Emma and mother-in-law Eva Dame. 

On his marriage record, he indicates his occupation as fisherman and paper box maker.

      @69.  Anna Margrethe5 Dame (William Michael4, Christopher3, Michael2 Damm, John1) was born 09 May 1919 in Boston, Suffolk County Massachusetts92, and died 09 August 1993 in Malden, Middlesex County Massachusetts.  She married Charles Everett Wainwright 04 February 1938 in Hampton Falls, Rockingham County New Hampshire, son of Everett Wainwright and Charlottie Schwartz.  He was born 12 November 1913 in East Boston, Suffolk County Massachusetts93, and died 31 August 1985 in Malden, Middlesex County Massachusetts.

Notes for Anna Margrethe Dame:

Though born in this country, Anna spent much of her childhood in Norway with her mother Hedvig, and her brothers John and Roy, living there from 1929 until her return to East Boston, Massachusetts in 1936. The Dames lived on Green Street, above a bakery owned by Hedvig's Grandfather Johannes Osmo.

Anna is listed in the US Census for 1920 aged 7/12, living with her parents at 121 Green St. Jamaica Plain.

In 1921, Anna traveled with her mother to Trondheim for a summer visit.  She returned through Ellis Island aboard the Stavangerfjord on 9 August, aged 2.

Anna showed an early love for dancing. At the age of 6, she danced in a talent show at the grand opening of the Metropolitan Theatre (now the Wang Center for the Performing Arts) in Boston Massachusetts. While in Norway, she danced professionally with a traveling company called Chat Noir from Oslo, a vaudeville show. She imparted this love to her daughter Linda, who became an accomplished dancer in her own right.

Anna met her husband Charlie at a party given in her honor by her father William Dame.  The music for the party was provided by a dance band that included his daughter Dot (Dame) Rogers on piano, Ray Brown on drums and Charlie Wainwright on saxophone.  The couple eloped to Hampton Falls New Hampshire on a bus in 1938.

Anna and Charlie lived at several rented apartments in Winthrop and East Boston, Massachusetts, the last being at 48 Neptune Road, just down the street from Wood Island Park, where she lived for many years. In 1958, she convinced her reluctant husband they should purchase a home at 7 Arlington Terrace in Malden.  It was to be their final address.

She was an early example of a working wife.  From the mid forties to the mid fifties, she worked at Dickie Raymond s in Boston.  Later, she worked at Transitron Corporation in Melrose Massachusetts.  She retired from work as a waitress at the faculty club at MIT.

Anna died of lung cancer and emphysema in 1993; but in the year or so before she did, she traveled extensively, visiting the Soviet Union (Just before the collapse), Germany (Just after the wall came down), Yugoslavia (Just before the Bosnian war), Israel, and her cousins in Norway.  I believe she made a conscious decision to travel rather than subject herself to the necessary chemo-therapy that would have robbed her of an acceptable quality of life.

Anna was buried at the Forestdale Cemetery in Malden, next to her husband.  During the final trip to the cemetery, the procession drove past the house in Malden where she had spent the last 35 years of her life.

Marriage Notes for Anna Dame and Charles Wainwright:

Charlie  and  Anna  eloped  to  Hampton Falls NH on 4 February, 1938, taking a bus from Boston, Suffolk County Massachusetts for the event. They lived in Winthrop and East Boston  until October 1958, when they bought a house at 7 Arlington Terrace in Malden.

John William5 Dame (William Michael4, Christopher3, Michael2 Damm, John1) was born 28 February 1922 in East Boston, Suffolk County Massachusetts94, and died 06 December 1981 in Keene, New Hampshire95.  He married Rev. Cora Elsie Banks Private, daughter of Oren Banks and Elsie ---.  She was born Private.

Notes for Rev. John William Dame:

When he was a child, John went to Norway with his mother and siblings.  He stayed for only two years, and returned to East Boston alone about 1931.  His childhood friend (and later, wife) Elsie remembers that he returned to Sunday School and was given a new Bible for returning to the neighborhood.  He always hated fish, and since that was what was for dinner most times in Norway, he always said he lived for two years on potatoes and milk!

John was active in the Salvation Army with his wife Elsie up to the end of the War.  With his wife Elsie, he served for many years as a Methodist Circuit Minister, with missions throughout the Northeast.  His principal areas were the rural sections of New England, upstate New York, and Pennsylvania.

John died in December, 1981 of the complications of ALS.  His ashes were spread over Boston Harbor at his request.

Notes for Roy Christian Femmer Dame:

Though born in East Boston Massachusetts, Roy spent most of his early years in Norway with his mother.  His father was unable to pay for his passage home before hostilities broke out in Norway, and he was marooned as a foreign national there until the US entered the war, at which point he became an enemy alien.  Because he was of military age he was offered his freedom in return for the renounciation of his US citizenship.  This he did, but was shortly thereafter inducted into the much hated Norwegian Quisling Army.

 In the 1930 US Census, Roy is listed as absent from the home of his grand mother Eva Dame.  He is called :Louis.

The 1942 and 1944 Trondheim City directory lists Roy Dame, piccolo living with his mother in Nonne Street 4

Still a student, Roy, as a member of his school's soccer team, was permitted to travel to other villages for matches.  Roy played in a Soccer match in a village in the mountains to the east, near the Swedish border.  After the match, Roy mounted skis and escaped with several other boys to the safety of Sweden.  He was interred in a camp there for the duration of the war.

At the conclusion of hostilities, Roy met and married Bjorg Michelsen from Oslo. Shortly after they were married, and had their first child Tone, they came to the US.  Unfortunately, the US Immigration authorities chose not to reinstate Roy's US citizenship.

Roy lived with his family first in Chelsea, Massachusetts, then in Malden and in North Reading Massachusetts.  When their children were grown, Roy and his wife moved to Brewer Maine where he died.
