My Greatgrandfather Johann Balthasar Roemer and wife Barbara (born Weller) emigrated to the USA from Climbach, Hessen-Darmstadt, via Paris, France, between 1882 and 1888 (they came at different times).
In La Villette, Paris, my grandaunt (grandmother's sister), Elise Roemer, was born in La Villette, Paris, 15 Feb 1870. My grandmother, Eleanora Roemer, was confirmed 23 Apr 1887 in a German Lutheran Church in La Villette, Paris.
The family's Paris connection was through their great-grandfather Henri Commelin, a French soldier from Louvre, Paris, who married Maria Schmidt (Schmitt) in Climbach @1798.
I have researched Roemers in CLimbach to the earliest records in the church books.
