I am looking for anyone who might know something about the William Schomer family. He was my great grandfather. His father's name was Mathiae Schommer and mother was Elixabeth Arens. William (Wilhelmus) was born in Trier, Arrenrath, Rheinland, Prussia, Germany in 1842. He married a Catharina Klink in 1866, same place in Germany. They had a daughter born in 1870, name of Chenia, but the spelling of her name may be way off. They immigrated to Winona, Minnesota in 1871 and moved to Dakota territory in 1881. They had 6 more children. Maggie born 1872 in Minnesota, Joseph born 1875 in Minnesota, William (my grandfather) born 1877 in Winona Minnesota, Nicholas born 1879 in Minnesota, Mat born 1882 Dakota territory and Andrew born 1887 in Dakota territory. If you know anything about Mat or Nicholas, please let me know. One of them may have married a Babcock.

I have an Elizabeth Schommer in my family.
She was married to my Great grandfather, Frank Marso.
Frank started out in Iowa and I believe Elizabeth in South Dakota.
They lived in Southern Minnesota, Mankato area.

If this sounds familiar, let me know.

Joann, Sorry it is not our Schommer family. My great, great grandmother Elizabeth Schommer was married to Matthaie Schommer in Germany. She immigrated to the US in 1871 with her son, Wilhelmus and family. Thanks anyway.

Surnames: Schomer
While browsing the internet, I came across an article, written by a school class it seems, on Edward G. Schomer. The link no longer works on Google, but if you hit the "cached" pages, it still comes up without the pictures.
Edward G. Schomer, Faith, SD (Meade County) born october 1, 1924 - November 24, 1943. Killed in Action abord the Liscome Bay in the South Pacific, WWII.

His parents were Nickolas and Alice (Babcock) Schomer. Three brothers, Frank James and Clifford. Seven sisters, six were listed: Lena, Rose, Dellas, Edna, Thelma and Velma. His father was a blacksmith I think, as he worked with his dad in the blacksmith shop as a child.

The information for the story was provided by Edna Jones, Edward G's sister. The school was Spearfish Middle School, Spearfish, SD.

I think this might be of help to you. Good Luck.

I need to check my family information but it sounds like this is my husband's great-grandfather also. Nickolas Schomer is my husband's grandfather.
