My IMAN family starts with grandmother FLORENCE IMAN b 3 Dec 1876 in Clifton KS to ANDREW J IMAN of WV and MARY JANE GRIFFITH. ANDREW was son of WILLIAM IMAN and LUCINDA MALCOLM, and WILLIAM b. 1821 in WV was son of EMANUEL IMAN. This info is pretty well documented and would love working together with another decendant of EMANUEL'S. Happy Hunting ! !

My g g g grandfather, Cornelius E. Iman was the son of Emanuel Iman and Barbara Sites/Sietz. Unfortuneately, I don't even have any dates for them. This all the further back I've been able to trace the family. I would appreciate any information anyone is willing to share.

Everything I have found seems to put all of we IMAN families in the Hardy Co W VA area and then on back to Germany. Let me study my notes and I'll have more suggestions later for our combined research. More later!

This is what information I have gotten from a friend on the Iman family: Hans Iman b:1591 in Switzerland died after 1671 in Germany, No wife yet but one son Ulrich Iman born About 1623 in Canton Bern, Switzerland and he married a Farni? in 1661 in Switzerland and she died 1700 in Germany. Urich and Farni Iman , one son listed Johannes Iman born 1666 in Oberdiesbach, Canton Bern, Switzerland, died about 1745 in Lohmuehle, Germany, married Magdalena Eichelberger about 1695, 3 children listed: Johnannes Iman born abt. 1699 in Sionerhof, Germany; Christian Iman born 4-18-1701 Sionerhof, Germany died 3-30-1767 Sionerhof, Germany; and Ulrich Iman born 1708 Germany died 1-1765 in Lancaster County, Pa. and he married Maria Fuchs 1730 in Germany. Ulrich and Maria Iman has 4 children listed: Jakob Iman born 1730 Lohmuhle, Germany died 7-18-1782 Kuhborncheshof, Germany; Christain Iman born 1731 Germany died 9-1833 Lancaster County, Pa., married abt. 1760 Catherine; Magdalena Iman born 1743 in Germany and Mary Iman born 1745 in Germany. Ulrich Iman remarried Maria Agatha Essig 4-24-1757 Germany and one son listed Johann Heinrich (Henry) Iman born 1-26-1758 in Germany. That's about as far back as I can go for now. Hope it helps.

Hello everybody. My husband is an Iman and over the years I have collected whatever I could find on Iman's on the off chance that I might find a connection. I have an article from Muzzle Blasts magazine from January 1988 about Cornelius Iman being a gunsmith. This article tells about him being in the Union Army , gives a physical description of him, tells his parents, wife, and children. Talks about the guns he made. So far I haven't found a connection to my Iman's, but if anyone would like this information I would be glad to share it. Sherri Iman

Sherri, I would love to have a copy of the article. Cornelius Iman was my g g g grandfather. After my grandfather died this past November, I found a note he had written about his ancestors. I can't find the copy of the note at the moment, as I will be moving 3 days, but it mentioned one of the guns he had made being in an antique store. I think it said something about a crack in the barrel. Anyway, I would appreciate a copy of the article. Please email me at

Thank you!
