1-Karl ROEMMICH1,2,3 was born in Jun 1850 in Russia.   4 Another name for Karl was Carl.

Noted events in his life were:

· Birth Record: for Carl Roemmich, son of Johannes Roemmich, 21 Jun 1850, Worms, Odessa, Cherson, South

Russia.5 This record agrees with the June 1850 birth date in the 1900 US Census.

· He has conflicting birth information of 21 Jun 1850.6 1900 Census birth date of Jun 1850 (in Russia) is

compatible with this record as follows:

Roemmich, Carl born 21 Jun 1850 at Worms; son of Johannes Roemmich; LDS film # 1882652/1 359 8

(documented as alternate birth).

1855 Birth: Remmick Family Tree online: A birth date for a Karl Roemmich, born 23 Jan 1855 at Balditzky,

Odessa, South Russia who died 4 July 1856 according to data in Remmich Family Tree online can't be the right

Karl since the death date indicates that he died as a small child (b.1855, d.1856), although the data includes wife

and children of "our" family.

· Origins:7,8,9 He wass probably a son of Johannes[V], instead of a grandson of Wilhelm [II] in the Generation 7

descendants. His descendants were probably attached to the "wrong" Karl Roemmich in the online Roemmich

genealogy. His ancestry is probably the same ancestry, but he may connect to it differently. He is likely

descended from the generation 7 ancestor and predecssors, but he, himself, is probably"generation 9" instead of

"generation 10."

· He immigrated from Russia probably on the Werra at age 34 with wife and daughter, Sophia, on 12 May 1884

to Port of New York at Castle Garden, New York, New York.10,11 The name is Carl "Renning" on the

transcribed ship's list, but the age is right and his daughter's name is right ("Sofie"). His wife's name is close:

"Marcythe" instead of Margerita. And he did immigrate in 1884 according to the 1900 US Census.

· He worked as a Farmer.1

· He resided at Blessing Township.12

· He resided at Thompson Twp, Campbell County, South Dakota in 1900.1
