Comments for Ohmer Family Genealogy Tracing our roots back to 1630 Thu, 11 Nov 2021 15:57:56 +0000 hourly 1 Comment on History of the Dayton, Ohio Ohmers by Shannon Thu, 11 Nov 2021 15:57:56 +0000 Hello. My grandparents lived on Creighton Avenue my entire childhood, and I have the fondest memories of Trick-or-Treating at the Ohmer House there. The house was like a mansion to us, as we frequently walked or roller skated by, and to go inside for a huge candy bar at Halloween, was a special treat. The timing would have been roughly 1969 through the mid-70’s, so I believe that we have met. Thank you for the fascinating history of your amazing family, and the Ohmer House. It was very nostalgic for me.

Comment on History of the Dayton, Ohio Ohmers by Sara Witt Thu, 28 Oct 2021 03:09:32 +0000 My name is Sara, and I purchased the Michael Ohmer house, on Phillips Avenue, in 2010, and still call it my home I am completely fascinated by the history of this place, and over the last 10.5 years, I’ve unearthed as much information about its historical significance, as the internet has allowed me. All my time spent here has been dedicated to staving-off of the natural entropy of homes, left vacant for many years, and as well, scrambling to keep- up with the “old home” occurences, as they come. And… make no mistakes, the certainly have been abundant. lol. I’ve tried to make it my mission nor to bring harm to any original (or restored) woodwork, like the built-in china cabinet. I’ve been busy keeping all 6 fireplaces operable, chimney’s tuck-pointed, floors original, foundation sealed, old trees alive (wherever possible without compromising our safety), while also undoing some of the “repairs,” a few of the more recent owners attempted, which were done with nowhere near the attention to detail and quality, used in the original structure. I’ve stumbled on some fun and exciting relics, along the way, making the journey all-the-more inspiring.
I would love to chat with somebody about this home, and would be thrilled to share pictures of some of the work we’ve done, and perhaps, to poke my nose in the same, regarding the house on Creighton, of Nicolas Ohmer’s.
It is wonderful to read more Ohmer family history and geneology, as this house, its history, the Ohmer ties to Calvery Cemetery & Sacred Heart Church, M.Ohmer’s son’s, & Ohmer Fare Registry, have all become things to which I feel utterly connected. Still, over a decade later, I’m astounded every day to have been blessed enough to reside in such a beautiful home, with such a fantastic family history.

Comment on Origins of the OHMER surname by Ute Anna Katharina Lehnfeld Tue, 28 Sep 2021 12:19:02 +0000 There exists an old German meaning of ohmer, that was ame, ome or ahme and it means “Eicherer” and that is a person, who puts something in Eichenfässer (drum barrel of oak wood), with perhaps vine oder beer inside, so that the name stood for a profession.

Virginia shared some great wisdom there. “Nature’s pruner.” … I like it!

Comment on John Francis Ohmer, Jr. by James H Dymond Mon, 03 May 2021 16:13:10 +0000 I was particularly interested in the fact that Mr. Ohmer married Virginia Elizabeth Dymond in 1927. My name is James Dymond and our family lived at 1336 Holly Avenue which is on street west of Creighton Avenue where the old Ohmer homestead is located. As a child, I had the honor of working in the Ohmer yard for a brief period in the early 1950’s.

Mrs. Ohmer was always very nice to us kids. She would take the time to talk to us and share her knowledge of taking care of yards with us. I remember one early spring day there had been a wind storm the night before and the fruit trees in the small orchard facing Carlisle Avenue were pretty torn-up. Mrs. Ohmer told us that the wind was nature’s pruner. It was just nature’s way of getting rid of the unneeded trees and parts of trees.

Comment on Earl Nicholas Ohmer by Gerald R Laschober Wed, 09 Dec 2020 10:04:29 +0000 My name is Gerry Laschober.
I used to live in Juneau, Alaska and came to Petersburg several times to visit Penny. She worked at the cannery.
If I remember correctly her mother’s name was Gloria. We always had fresh sea food for meals. (The cat would get some too).
One time when I visited there was a party and Governor Sheffield visited.
Memories of my visits are some of the fondest.
What spurred my interest now is that I am coming into Juneau July of 2021 to go to Excursion Inlet to fish with friends with the Doc Warner fishing tours.
I now own a rainbow trout farm in Western North Carolina.
I would like to hear how all are doing.

Comment on Chapter 7 – Emigration by Walter Hauber, Jr. Sat, 14 Nov 2020 20:40:27 +0000 My great-grandfather was Georg Adam Hauber who emigrated with his older brother, Franz Anton Hauber, from Neupotz in April 1849. (They both appear in the Neupotz emigration list.) They left from Le Havre, France and landed in New Orleans on June 25, 1849. They lived in New Orleans for about 3 years working as basket makers until they moved to Louisville, Kentucky in 1852 where they raised families and continued to work as basket makers. Their older brother, Georg Wendel Hauber, emigrated from Neupotz with his family in 1857 and also settled in Louisville, Kentucky. (He, too, appears on the Neupotz emigration list.) He worked as a basket maker in Louisville also. I am not aware of any other persons from Neupotz who settled in Louisville, Kentucky, and I am not aware that my great-grandfather had any relatives living in Louisville when he arrived with his brother in 1852. I and most of the other descendants of these three Hauber sons of Neupotz still live in Louisville or nearby areas.
