Friedrich Scheimer was born about 1701 in Gersheim, Rheinpfalz.
(Note: the "Rheinpfalz" Rhine Palatinate did not belong to Bavaria until AFTER the Congress of Vienna in 1815. Before 1815, the information is incorrect.)
He married Ruth K. Zimmer (abt.1701-1790) about 1729. His sons Friedrich, Daniel and Michael emigrated to America on the ship "Edinburgh" arriving in Philadelphia from Rotterdam by way of Portsmouth, England on 15 July 1749. He passed away. (No more info is currently available.)
