The Immigration of German Colonists to Denmark and Their Subsequent Emigration to Russia in the Years 1759-1766 shows that Andreas Gomer was born 11 August 1713 in Adelshofen, a town that is now part of Eppingen in Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany. In the Danish records, the town was listed as being in Ritterlichter Kanton Kraichgau, under the rule of Count von Neipperg.

Andreas married Elisabetha Hofmann, born in 1717. There were no Elisabetha Hofmanns born in Adelshofen but many born in 1717 in that area and in Germany, so that makes tracking her down much more difficult. The couple had four children, all born in Adelshofen.

I found none of the children's birth records in multiple online searches, except for in the Danish records and reported by Corina Hirt for The Center For Volga German Studies at Concordia University. [1]

The family traveled to Denmark with a group led by Adam Saam. They departed the processing center in Altona, Holstein on 14 June 1762, and arrived in Flensburg, Schleswig on 19 June 1762. They took their oaths of allegiance to Denmark one month later and were considered reserve colonists in the region of Flensburg. As recorded on 09 November 1764, they lived at Number 1 Gott mit uns in Colony G5 Fridrichsanbau in the region of Gottorf. On 27 April 1765 the family left Denmark to immigrate to Russia, ending up on the Colony of Dönhof.

Ms. Hirt of The Center for Volga German Studies must have compared the Danish records to the Dönhof census records, which I do not have access to at this time. She notes on the website that while the family still lived in Denmark, daughter Katharina Margaretha married Johann Georg Stromberger, and daughter Katharina Elisabetha married Nikolaus Rutz. The entire Gomer family, including the sons-in-law, immigrated to Dönhof, arriving on 21 July 1766. By the 1767 Dönhof census, Andreas Gomer is listed in household #9; his son Johann Friedrich was listed in household #48, probably because he married and was eligible to have his own home.

By the 1798 census, only sons Johann Michael and Johann Friedrich were recorded in the Doenhof census as households #70 and #93. I don't yet have the household numbers for the Stromberger and Rutz families. Two of the daughters of Nikolaus and Katharina Elisabetha Rutz married men from Grimm and moved to that village. Father Andreas is no longer listed in the census and it is presumed that he passed away. If his wife was still alive, she may have remarried and lived in another family. Otherwise, she, too, most likely passed away.

Update 05 January 2018

A descendant of Andreas Gomer contacted me to tell me that her parents were: Johann Jakob Gomer and Anna Ursula Agnes Casselmann. A copy of her email remains in my personal files. I will continue researching this family with this additional information.

Update 01/10/2018

Additional contact with descendant who provided family information rearding Andreas Gomer and his family. I will add it to the appropriate profiles here and keep a hard copy in my personal genealogy files. A few important points:

  • The Gomers have always been based in Adelshofen, at least since the late 1600s and possibly longer.
  • Georg Andreas Gomer was married once before his marriage to Elisabetha Hofmann
  • There are two Gomer lines in Adelshofen. They are probably related although she has not made a connection yet. She is related to both lines.
  • Many historical documents were lost during World War II, and sometimes entries were not made because those responsible for maintaining records had fled to safety.
  • It may be possible to find document about individual families.
