Surname Saturday: Rottman (Bavaria / Georgia / Iowa / Illinois)

Ah, now we get to talk about my crazy ROTTMAN family.  The earliest known ancestor is Philip ROTTMAN, my second great-grandfather.  He apparently came to the US from Bavaria, Germany.  This family has been difficult to research for many reasons, but mainly because they moved around the country several times.  My direct line ancestors are in blue.
