I know the answer to this question!! It had also confused me at the beginning. Franz and his brother Sebastian and their families were very close and they spent a lot of time together. In order to keep things straight, they called Sebastian's son Franz "Junior." He became known as Franz Junior.

In a message dated 8/1/03 3:09:29 PM, writes Wenderoth [Winterrot, Winteroth of Bammental Baden, Germany]:

<< Hi Judy:

Mr. Vern Carpenter published a book on the descendants of Caspar Wenderoth of Bammental, Baden, Germany and Margaretha Strep of Meckesheim, Baden, Germany. The book is red with gold letters. On the spine of the book is WENDEROTH; on the front of the book is nine different spellings for Wenderoth. There are 287 pages + Two Indexes: pages 288-372 are surnames A-Z + pages 373-384 are surnames of all the different spellings of WENDEROTH (over 20). My family has had the WINTRODE spelling for many years.


Caspar Wenderoth, 1705-1777(?) and Margaretha (Strep) 1711-1772(?) sailed

to America on the ship "Pleasant" in 1732, just after they married. They

settled in New London, PA for about two years, then took up Lord Baltimore's

offer of 200 acres of land for married men, for a penny per acre per year,

first three years free. Of course, Caspar and Margaretha were right in the

middle of a disputed area claimed by both Lord Baltimore as Maryland, and by

William Penn as Pennsylvania. They were very active members of the

Evangelical Reformed Church of Frederick, Frederick County, MD. Caspar was

naturalized 27 April 1753, in the Provincial Court, Frederick County, MD.

At Caspar's request, it was recorded 6 Jun 1761. Liber G. p.20. Frederick

County Circuit Court.


Jacob Wenderoth 1735-1797 born in Prince Georges County, MD; served in the

French-Indian War ("Pioneers of Old Monocacy-The Early Settlement of

Frederick County, Maryland, 1721-1743", by Grace L. Tracey & John P. Dern;

page 378-380); married Barbara _____(?); lived in York County, PA; served

in the American Revolution (which I haven't found his service records, yet,

but he is listed in the DAR Patriot Indexes). Jacob and Barbara were members

of Christ Reformed Church, now in Adams County, PA.


Henry Winterroth 1767-1845 Frederick County, MD; married 1790 York County,

PA to Margaretha Shabert/Shobert

("Ohio Divorces: The Early Years", by Bell - states that Margaretha's name

was Heming) (Henry's will states Margaretha's name was Schobert/Schabert).

Henry was in public office in Columbiana County, OH in 1806. He moved to

Stark County, OH, then to Licking County, OH where he died at his son's



Henry Wintrode 1792-1866 Frederick County, MD; married 1815, Stark County,

OH to Elizabeth Shively 1794-1867 Washington County, PA. Henry and

Elizabeth had a large farm in Andrews, Huntington County, IN. Both buried in

Riverside Cemetery, Andrews.


Daniel Wintrode 1824-1901Stark County, OH; married 1849 Huntington County,

IN to Hannah Beauchamp 1820-1910 Wayne County, IN. Farmer of 334 acres in

Andrews, Huntington County, IN. Daniel was a member of IOOF Loon Creek

Lodge, Andrews. Both Daniel and Hannah are buried in Riverside Cemetery,



Curtis Calhoun Wintrode 1851-1921; married 1879 to Martha Priscilla Jones

1861-1936 Huntington County, IN. Martha was afflicted with epilepsy before

childbearing and after childbearing; she was in a mental hospital in

Richmond, Wayne, IN at the time of her death. Both Curtis and Martha are

buried in Riverside Cemetery, Andrews. Martha's mother, Mariah Phoebe Scott,

was a full-blooded American Indian; whose parents, William Scott and Martha

O. Denton were from VA. I haven't discovered their American Indian tribe

yet. William Scott was in the War of 1812.


Clara Maude Wintrode 1889-1956 Andrews, Huntington, IN-Anderson, Madison,

IN; married 1906, Huntington County, IN to William Tell Kumley 1869-1933

Lagro, Wabash, IN-Wabash, Wabash, IN. William's parents were from Wolfisberg

and Wiedlisbach, Bern, Switzerland. Jacob Kumley, his father, was in the

Civil War, 1861-1865 from Hardin County, OH.


Mary Elizabeth Kumley 1910-1987 Lagro, Wabash, IN - Wabash, Wabash, IN;

married 1930, N. Fairfield, Huron, OH to Edward Albert Grimmer 1910-1976

Bucyrus, Crawford, OH-Washington Court House, Fayette, OH.

Mary and Edward, my mother and father, divorced; my dad enlisted in the

Army and my mother was in a mental health institution in Toledo, OH from

1937 until the mid 1970's. Children: 1.Natalie Charlotte Grimmer,

1932-1991,Albany, Delaware, IN-Columbia City, Whitley, IN; lived in Wabash,

Wabash, IN. 2.James Edward Grimmer 1933-1987 Albany, Delaware, IN. He served

in the Naval Air Force in WWII; buried in National Cemetery, Marion, Grant,

IN. 3.Yvonne Jean Grimmer 1934 Plymouth, Huron, OH - Pasadena, Los Angeles,

CA. 4. Barbara Ann Grimmer 1936 Plymouth, Huron, OH - Taylor, Wayne, MI.

Dad remarried, supposedly with the intention of making a home for us four

children - which never happened. We lived with relatives.

I live in Pasadena, CA, divorced for several years; 3 grown children and 2

granddaughters and 1 grandson.

Do you know if your Winterrott's are related to Caspar Wenderoth? It would

be interesting to find a connection!

Possibly a distant cousin

<< Good Afternoon,

I am wondering if the book "Conflict of Three Cultures" is still available. If so we would like to purchase one. no longer carries this book.

Sophia Weikum Roemmich was my husband's great-aunt. Her father, Johann Weikum, was his great-grandfather. Edward Weickum was his grandfather.

John Weickum was his father and my husband's name is Kevin John Weickum.

Johann Weikum's father was Wilhelm Weikum and he was married to Elizabeth Werner. I'm not seeing a connection under "Weikum Letters".

They married in about 1871 in So. Russia. I have no knowledge of him even coming to America. Perhaps he didn't. Have you heard of Wilhelm and Elizabeth?

Thanks for your wonderful research and also for sharing it!

<< Hello!

Thank you for the website on the Remmick's.

It's quite interesting going over it, though I have just started.

My sister had ran across some naturalization papers from my Grandfather Carl Remmick, son of [Wilhelm Roemmick b. 5/24/1862 ] I thought that I would get on the Internet and see what I could find. What a surprise!

I have not found my Great Grandfather on your website,

My Grandfather never talked about his relatives, so we never knew anything other then he was German.

On page 152 on your website picture of [Wilhelm Roemmich b. 11/30/1862 ] might be the same person. He looks just like my Dad with a mustash !

My Dad grew up in Sutton NE.

My Grandfather's Brothers and sisters are

Katrina , Elizabeth, William, Jacob, Orosalia, Amelia, Carl,  Arvalia, and Kathrina..

My sister is going through some more stuff, I think that we have a picture of Wilhelm, and one of Carl and his sister's, probably 1908 or so. Carl had three sons: Donald [My father], Max, and Howard.

I'm the youngest of five of Donald's children. The others are,

Richard b. .....,

Terry b.....,

Jeanna b.....,

Kendall b. ......

I am going to try to get copies of the book and the video from NDSU

We never knew much about my mother's side of the family either. Her  mother died giving birth to my mom, and was raised by her father's sister. From what I've been told, my Grandfather Bradsby is related to the founders of the Bradsby bat company { louieville slugger } and the Case Family.  { Case knife comp.}

After WW II everyone moved to Colorado, from Nebraska, and all of us still live here. I hope to learn my family's past, and if possible that I can fill  in some gaps for your website. I always thought that my Grandfather and his parents came here all on their own, and that was that. To find this interesting  story is really great.

Thanks again ! Kendall Remmick >>

Letter #2


"Harold Wiest" <>

<Hi again,

We are very familiar with where the Wiests came from.  In 1809 and 1810 there were 4 Wiest families [all related] that came to Rohrbach (very near Worms) from the Rheinpfalz area in Germany.  Since that time many came to the US and Canada.  There are 5 people involved in trying to "graft" in different branches of the "Rohrbach Wiest" family tree.  When we get info on, for example, an Elizabeth Wiest who married a Remmick, we want to figure out which family she belonged to.

Part of our problem is that many of the Wiests came from the Reformed tradition, and on the PIXEL there appears to be only a few records from the Reformed side after 1860.  So that leaves us with a big gap unless we can find someone who has an old Bible, or a family tree with some missing info that can tie that individual into the bigger "Rohrbach Wiest" family tree. >>

Letter: dated 17 June 2004  from Carol ,


My name is Carol Andrus, I receied your e-mail address from a friend Gwen Pritzkau. She told me that maybe you could help me. My great-grandmother was Regina Remmick. She married Louis E. Bogenrief. She was born in "Odessa" 2 Jan 1862. She came to the US in 1888 which her 2 year old son Peter. She lived with her sister Mrs. Friedrick (probably named Elizabeth) Giese, who was living in McPherson Co., SD. She married a Mr. Brown who died shortly thereafter then she married my grandfather Louis Bogenrief in Pollock, SD. They moved to Fargo, ND in 1912 and she died there 17 Jun, 1925.

This is all the information that I have about her. I have not been able to find her on the birth records in Odessa or Worms. In all of your research, have you ever come across Regina? Any information you could give me would be very appreciated!

My e-mail address is

Thank you!


JARHT NOTE:  See web site: This family is taken back to Johan Bogenrief b. 1709 Neiderhoch / Pfalz [Germany] d. July 1782 in Berks, Co, PA, USA m. Cath. Eliz. Wittner in 1732.....

you don't know me, but I hope you would like to help me.

I found your homepage on the internet by searchig for the name 'zimbelmann'. That name is included to your family tree and I thought you could help me searching for Conrad Zimbelmann and other Family members of Conrad Zimbelmann.

Maybe they're named 'Zimblemann', 'Zimbelman' or 'Zimbleman' now.

Conrad Zimbelmann was born on Jan. 8, 1856 in Rohrbach, Cherson, Russia. He married on Dez. 6, 1877 a woman named Christine Perlenfein, b. July 11, 1857 in Rohrbach too.

(This name i found in your family tree too)

Their Children were:

John, *10.08.1888, Christina, *27.06.1886,

Elizabeth *27.05.1890, Conrad, *28.08.1883,

Jacob 1880-1890, Jacob, *10.12.1892,

Johanna, *28.04.1895, Gottlieb, *04.12.1897.

The Family moved to the US in the early beginning of 20th century - in the years 1900 till 1905.

My great grandfather was Konrad Zimbelmann.

He was born in 1900. He grew up without parents, but he knew that they've been moved to America and that one of his brothers lived in Germany.

One more thing he knew for sure, is that his father was called Konrad (Conrad) Zimbelmann too.

Maybe there is a connection between my great grandfather and the people I just told about.

So if you can tell me more about the Zimbelmann-

Family and what happened in the years 1900 till 1905,

please do that!!

I really hope you'll help me to find out more about my great grandfather and his family.

Hope for a soon answer...

Hello everyone,

This is my story:

My great grandfathers parents died when my great grandfather was little. His aunt EMMA ZIMBELMANN went to america. Her son LEON MOSER (my great grandfathers cousin) married ESTHER. They got 12 children and lived on a farm in USA.

My great grandparents were KONRAD and EMILIA ZIMBELMANN.

The MOSERs sent my great grandmother letters from the US and pictures of themselves and their house.

But it must have been over 15 years ago!

Leon and Esther already past away. But maybe their children would like to contact me and my family. I'd like to know what they're doing now, how they live, where they live and so on.



Winterroth/Winterrott Family

In a message dated 5/19/05 10:13:21 AM, writes:

I am a member of the Beresan list serve and was pleased to read through your web page.  I am sorry I did not know how to address you as I could not find a name.  Anyway I thought I would share what I have about the Winterroth family. 

 My maternal grandfathers is Christoph Winterroth, born 1893 in NeuGluckstal, Odessa, and married Anna Buelow, born 1895 in North Dakota.

Wilhelm Winterroth, born 1860 , in HOffnungstal, Odessa, married Rosina Walth, born 1863 in NeuGluckstal, Odessa.  They emigrated to ND in 1909.

Gottlieb Winterroth, born 1826, unsure of birth place, married ELizabeth Geyer( of Grosslibental), Oct 26, 1850 in Freudental, Libental, Odessa.  By 1858 they appear in the Hoffnungstal colony as living with a cousin.  According to Gwen Pritzkau of Family History Center in Salt Lake City who helped with some research Gottlieb Winterroth's cousin was probably Gottfried Nehr's (also spelled Naher, Heer, Neer)wife, who was a Schweyer from Freudental.

I know that Gottlieb Winterroth's wife was Elizabeth Geyer from our family bible listing as well as from the Gluckstal Colonies marriage record on film at Family History Center.  I personally went to Grossbottwar, near Stuttgart, Germany,  to see if I could find records of Winterroths as I thought Gottlieb Winterroth was from there as Stumpp says the Nehers were from there.  The woman who kept the church records said no one by name of Winterroth had ever lived in that village.  But, in Oberstadt, the neighboring village a Heer had emigrated to So Russia but she thought he went to Bessarabia.

How we think this Gottlieb Winterroth might be related to the other Winterroths in Worms is that his father was a brother to both Margaret and Sibilla Winterroth.  Margaret married #1 a Rommich, #2 John  George Bier.  Sibilla married Georg Friedrich Bier.  ELizabeth, Margaret, and possible the father of Gottlieb were born in Bammental, Heidelburg, Germany, but Sibilla appears in the Darmstadt records as born in 1806.  Gwen thought that the parents Johann Philipp Winterroth and Catherine Elizabeth ---- left Bammental to move to Darmstadt then after 1806 moved on to South Russia.

What I have is that Johann Philipp born 1776 was brother to Anna Maria who married Michael Reichel, Elizabeth who married Karl Feil, and Anna Felictius who married Christian Schmeir who had a child Maria Elizabeth born 1800 who married Theobald Ochsner.

Hope this helps clarify some of the Winterroth relationships after 1826.  I would love to know exactly who the father of Gottlieb Winterroth was and why no records appear in all the census in So Russia.

Thanks, again, for the opportunity to read through your wonderful webpage.  I will surely use it many times.

Subject: Your Roemmich Website



I was curious about my paternal geneology and began searching the internet. I came across your gloriously in-depth website and was hooked. I am trying to find my lineage on your site and wanted to give you the information that I know.

My name is Tracy Bell (Roemmich). I will give you the information that I know and hopefully that can fill in some of the information that you have or may not have. I will start back as far as I know. The difficult thing is that there are so many with the same names...anyway

My Great, Great, Great Grandfather was a Jacob Roemmich with a son by the name of Philip and we think that one of the two of these was married to a woman named Magdelene...think it was Philip. One of Philip's son's was Leonard b. 3-15-1895 d. 11-9-1964 m. Lydia Kline. Their son Darrell George Roemmich was my grandfather. b.2-22-1927 d.11-22-1991 m. Madeline Smith and had 4 children. Thomas Darrell is my father and his siblings are Ronald d.10-26-1977, Sharon and Leonard.

Anyway, any information that we could share would be appreciated. Your site is really something to see.

Hello! I have just discovered the website. Thank you for creating and having it!

I am descended from John Henry Roemmich (born Germany April 17, 1814, died December 11, 1893, in Germany) and who married Anna Katherine Satter (born Germany April 19, 1811, died March 18, 1888), and their son Jacob Philip Roemmich (born Edenkoben September 15, 1841, died Missouri December 7, 1920).

I have the names and birth dates of his siblings, which include John Philip, John Henry, Anna Katherine, Nickolano, William, and Philippina.

I cannot find a connection on your website.....can you help or make a suggestion?

I am in possession of a hard-copy genealogy of the John Henry and Jacob Philip family which was put together by my uncle Lee J. Ashley in the late 1940s. Do you have a copy and are you interested in having it?

My line:

John Henry (1814), Jacob Philip (1841), Wilhelmina (1887) (married Jeptha J. Ashley 1918), Jay J Ashley (____), Donald Ashley ___).

I'd be very happy to hear from you! I am looking for a connection to the Kast family of Edenkoben, one of which migrated to the U.S. in the late 1800's or early 1900's.
