The Family History in Germany is traced back to countries of Pruesseu (Prussia,) and Hessen, in what is now modern day Germany. The Huettenmueller Family name has been traced back to the 15th Century during the time of Martin Luther. Before this it is believed that the name came from varient of two other names and their combinations. Hutt or Hut and Müller or Mühle. The area in which the Huettenmueller Family comes from in modern time of the 1850’s is the town of Heuthen, in the district of Heilgelstadt, State of Thuringen, Germany; Ober Eschbach, Oberhessen, Hessen; Osterwieck, Sachsen, Preussen; Koeppern, and Hessen-Nassau, Preussen.
The earlest time in which the family came to the United States was around 1850. The first was Wilhelm Hüttenmüller. He came to the United States in 1850 lived in New York for a short period of 1 to 2 years the headed east to settle into the Cincinnati, Ohio area. Other family members came in the years of 1856, 1864, 1865, 1867, 1871 and 1881. Other female family members who married in Germany can over to the United States in varied years between. Almost all-family members settled into the Ohio reagion and move east into Iowa in the mid to late 1800’s.
Arrivals into the United States were at three main ports of entry. They were New York City, Philidelpia and Baltimore. One member came into North America by way of Ontario Canada.
The route of travel was eastward which in that time was the new frontier. All members traveled the known routes at that time. From Martins Ferry in Wheeling West Virgina down the Ohio River to Cinicinitti. Other took the National Road in Ohio to the Ohio Canal down to Cincinnati, Ohio. They traveled by Paddle Wheel steam boat or by wagon drawn by horses.
The original Huettenmueller’s German Spelling was HÜTTENMÜLLER, the ‘Ü’ in English translation is converted to ‘UE”
Several different spelling have been found throughout the History of the Huettenmueller Family, Some examples have been Hiettenmiller, Huttenmuller, Hittemiller, Heidemuller, Hittenmiller, Huttenmueller, Huettonmueller, Hitzmiller, Hutmueller, Hüttenmueller and Hutmiller. The taking of Census in the mid 1800’s aided in problems in the spelling of the Huettenmueller last name. The family’s strong German language and attempts to speak and write in English promoted the variances of the name. It is noted on the grave makers in Dyersville, Iowa at the St. Francis Catholic Cemetery, The names appear in German dialect, Henrich HÜTTENMÜLER, Johann HÜTTENMÜLLER and so on. In the Second Generation on John Huettenmueller’s side of the family the spelling was Hittenmiller. This of the same family and no confusion should be made of the differences of spelling and pronunciation of the HÜTTENMÜLLER Family name.
