Harry Klayman - Need Information #usa


I have been trying to find information on my great grandfather Harry H. Klayman for many years but can never find anything after he left Petersburg, VA around 1907.
We believe we emigrated from Germany or Poland and was born on June 28, 1871. He married Martha Lamb in 1892 a native of Petersburg, VA and they had 5 daughters.
I cannot find any emigration records on him and last documented information for him was a 1900 census taken in Petersburg, VA of which they spelled the last name Clayman.
When he left Petersburg at the age 30 not trace of him can be found. I do have a photo of him attached to this request.

If anyone has knowledge about him, please let me know.


I doubt we have the same ancestors, but I do have a few Claymans (2 - Harrys) who emigrated from the Riga area to SE Ohio before resettling in Washington, DC.  However, they arrived several decades after your Harry was born.

I have GILMAN family from Ukraine that lived in Petersburg up until the 1940s at least.   Jeff Knisbacher    j2456@...
