Hilderman(n) / Hilterman(n)
There are two Hiltermann families that settled in the Volga German colony of Holstein. The 1767 census does not record a relationship between these two families.
(1) Gustav Hiltermann (age 41), a barber (Friseur), and his family settled in Holstein on 2 May 1766. They are recorded on the 1767 census of Holstein in Household No. 4. In 1794, son Adolf Hiltermann and his family moved from Holstein to Dietel.
(2) Christian Hiltermann, a barber (Friseur), and his family settled in Holstein on 26 May 1765. They are recorded on the 1767 census of Holstein in Household No. 15.
The 1767 census records that both of these Hiltermann families came from the German region of Bielefeld [Nordrhein-Westfalen?].
Descendants of these families use several spellings including: Hilderman, Hildermann, Hilterman, and Hiltermann.
