About the KUHLMANN surname:
Most German surnames are derived from occupations, colors or locations.
Some are from descriptive forms (characteristic) such as Mein (little)
and Gross (big). The following surnames are of German origin: Kreuser
(one who had curly hair), Schluter (one who worked as a doorkeeper of the
prison), Tobler (a dweller in a forest, or ravine) and Shuck (one who
made and sold shoes).
Spelling variations of KUHLMANN include: Kuhl, Kuhle, Kuhlen, Kuhlemann,
Kuhlmann, Kulemann, Kulmann and many more. Many of my relations
Americanized the name to COLEMAN upon reaching our shores.
First found in Germany, where the name kuhlmann came from humble
beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to
the emerging mediaeval society.

Kuhlmann, who arrived in New York in 1710.
