  1. hello fellow ohmers 😉 cant believe this website, its just amazing!! and if you ever want tocontact me, email me, i provided said email above

  2. Mr Ohmer, I found that you have on Descendants of Peter Aumer (Ohmer) that Theresa O’Donnell was married to Michael Sleigher.

    The fact is that Theresa, born in 1856, was married to James B. Sleigher who was born in 1851.

    Their son was Raymond J. Sleigher

    Their headstones are pictured at their memorial in Find A Grave.

    Needless to say that to state Theresa E. O’Donnell was married to someone else is misleading to any researcher of the O’Donnell family. It will be greatly appreciated if the information provided by you would be corrected.

    Thank you. Dorothy E. O’Donnell

      I am very interested in learning more about my grandfather Earl Nicholas Ohmer. He died in 1955 in Petersburg Alaska, the same year I was born in the same town. I remain here running a seafood plant that is now part of a larger company, but which was started in 1916 by Earl. My father was Dave Paul Ohmer, who was a great friend of Casey Officer.
