Hello Mary Ellen,
Thanks so much for writing back so soon.
My Anastasia Agnes "Annie" Amrhein was born in Reussen Beirn in about 1853. She came to America with her family and settled in Baltimore, MD, sometime between 1853 and 1874. She married Gottlieb Sommer, (an organ builder born in Wuerttemberg, Germany about 1852) about 1874 because their first son, August, was born in Baltimore in 1875. The list of children follows:
August............. born 1875,............Baltimore, MD
Salome Veronica ....born 1877, ...........Williamsport, PA
Anna Catherine......born Dec 16, 1879.....Williamsport, PA
Amalia Albertina....born Oct 25, 1881.....Williamsport, PA
Charles J...........born 1885.............Baltimore, MD
George F............born 1887.............Baltimore, MD
Elizabeth Agnes.....born Oct 31, 1888.....Baltimore, MD***
Anastasia...........born ?................?
Theodore............born Jul 12, 1893.....Baltimore, MD
*** My grandmother
As you can see they moved back and forth between Baltimore and Williamsport. They were not in Baltimore for the 1880 Census.
I think I may find her and her family on the 1870 Census for Baltimore. I am also trying to find Gottlieb Sommer's family in Maryland. I have not been able to find an index to the 1870 Census for MD. I do have a subscrption to "" however, and can search through the Census, page by page, but I am not sure where to start looking.
On some of the Census records, the birthplace for Anastasia Agnes is "Bavaria". I believe that "Beirn" is a mis-spelling of "Bayern" which means "Bavaria".
I noticed there are two families from Bavaria in your list. However, the first family on your list, John T. is the only one old enough to be Anastasia's father. In 1880 she would have been 27, a year younger than John's daughter, Mary.
Could your Henry and John T. be brothers?
Thanks so much for your information. You have been very helpful.
I live in Utah, in the Uinta Mountains just below the Wyoming-Utah Border. I live in a cabin in the woods. I am about 120 miles from Salt Lake City.
I look forward to working with you also. You can contact me directly at
