Iím terribly sorry for taking so long to give you the information you requested regarding the German line of Edoms. (Spelling of name varies.)

The following was contributed by Mike Summerer of Virginia. You can contact him at

Ludwig EDOM, b. 1830, d. after 1920; emigrated with family 1881, naturalized

Wife, Henriette RETTIG, b. 1832, d. before 1915


1. Caroline Rosine Wilhelmine EDOM, b. 1861-63, mar. Heinrich Christian Friedrich THONEBE, b. 1860-62

2. Carl Friedrich August EDOM, b. 1862, mar. Ella KATSCHKEN, b. 1862
Alfred Edom b. 1895
Fred EDOM b. 1899
August EDOM b. 1901
Raymond EDOM b. 1904

3. Johanna Auguste EDOM, b. 1874, d. 1947, mar. Heinrich SUMMERER, b. 1871 Bohemia (son of Michael & Theresia [Hubner] Summerer), d. 1919?, emigrated to NJ in 1889.
Mabel SUMMERER b. 1893, d. 1893
Edward SUMMERER b. 1894, d. ?
HELENA SUMMERER b. 1896, d. ?
Teresa SUMMERER b. 1899, d. ?
Florence SUMMERER b. 1901, d. ?
John SUMMERER b. 1904, d. 1967
Henry SUMMERER b. 1905, d. 1987
Rose SUMMERER b. 1908, d. 1954?
[child] SUMMERER b. 1909, d. 1909
George Michael SUMMERER b. 1910, d. 1983
William SUMMERER b. 1911, d. 1991
Anna SUMMERER b. 1914
Frederick SUMMERER b. 1916, d. 1988
Margaret SUMMERER b. 1919, d. 1919

I found the following German records on LDS microfiche:

Prussia, Brandenburg, Berlin Stadt, Sophien

1828 Nov 16
Edom, Carl Friedrich christened; son of Ludwig Wilhelm Edom & Anne Magdalene Hurtig

Prussia, Brandenburg, Berlin Stadt, Sophien

1830 May 16
Edom, Ludwig Heinrich christened; son of Gottlieb Wilhelm Edom & Christiane Magdalene Hurtig

1834 June 15
Edom, Emil Gustav christened; son of Ludwig Wilhelm Edom & Anne Christine Hurtig

1836 Apr 3
Edom, Franz Julius christened; son of Ludwig Wilhelm Edom & Anna Christiane Hurttig

And I have more. The Edom records I found go back to Samuel Edom, 1721 in Germany. That was the earliest I found, but that was only during one search.

There is also another family of German Edoms who reside in Arkansas (I think some are in California), and they also descend from the same line referred to above. His name is Herbert Edom of Searcy, Arkansas.

I hope this helps you a little. I don't show an Earle Edomm, but as you can see, my research is very limited. Perhaps Mike Summerer can help. Good luck!
