In Reply to: Roemers emig. from Germany in 1852 by Barb Lee Roemer of 168

Shoemaker Hermann Franz Roemer, born 4/18/1809, and his wife Christine Wiegelmann, born 9/2/1814, emigrated with their 4 children to the US in 1852. With them emigrated Johann Heinrich Moers with his wife Anna Maria Wiegelmann, Christine's sister. Johann Josef Roemer, a distant cousin of Herman Franz and born 1819, and his wife Gertrud Fuest, born 1832, together with their young child emigrated to the US at the end of 1853. Heinrich Roemer, born 1828 and Johann Roemer, born 1835 followed their brother Johann Josef Roemer later. All were born in Erlinghausen, a little village (about 500 inhabitants around 1850) near Marsberg south of Paderborn in Westphalia, Germany. The Roemer family is documented in Erlinghausen prior to 1700. Source of above information is the book: Erlinghausen: Eine Dorfgeschichte. by Gerhard Broekel There is much more information about the Roemer family in this book. The book is out of print but you can contact me for more information if you want.
