ULLMANN from Driesen, Devon and Australia {was Driesen} #general

Anne Muir of Brisbane asks where or how to find out information on a place
called Driesen in the Empire of Germany during the period 1835+? She discovered
on obtaining naturalisation information >from the PRO UK that two of her
ancestors, William and Solomon ULLMANN came >from there before moving to the UK

In my previous posting I mentioned the two different census entries of Solomon
{England in 1881 and 1891}.

I have just checked the place name *Driesen* on Yad Vashem - there are 64 named
victims born in Driesen -all were living Germany and of these 64 victims -
there is also an ULLMANN family with PoTs submitted by a brother and a sister -
the latter writes about Driesen "damals [then] Deutschland jetzt [now] Polen;

Adolf ULLMANN was born in Driesen, Germany in 1867 to Markus and Pauline nee
HAMBURGER. He was married to Katharina nee NATHANSON [daughter of Jacques
NATHANSON and Ida nee PINCUS}. Adolf perished in 1943 in Treblinka at the age of
75. Page of Testimony submitted on 17/04/1999 by his son >from Israel. Hans
Markus ULLMANN [tel number is given]. Hans Markus also writes a POT for his
aunt, Minna, dob 16.8.1864. His sister, Chana Ida Kresch? ne ULLMANN >from
Jerusalem has contributed PoTs for both her parents and many other family members
too.

Katharina Ullmann was born in 1879 it is likely her children are well into their
nineties. I do hope they are still alive as they might have more first-hand
knowledge of Driesen and perhaps they belong to the same ULLMANN family Anne is
researching. Solomon may well have been an uncle/Gt-Uncle of Adolf!
