My great-grandfather, John Boehmer, was born near Lima, Ohio in 1898. I know much about him, but very little about his family. My grandfather believes he was one of thirteen children. His known siblings were Lee, Josephine, Doretta, Leona (later Sister Mirabella), and Michael (died young). Little is known of his parents, although his father built church steeples and is believed to be from Bavaria. His mother, believed to be from the United States, died within five years of the birth of Leona...
Any information on these Boehmers would be greatly appreciated. I would like for my grandfather to know the name of his grandfather, even if he never he was never able to meet him.
