My mother, Irma Mae nee DOMM Derry. Her father GEORGE DOMM, was a mason/bricklayer, and was probably born about 1877. Her mother IRMA nee NORTON (whom my mother was named after), was born in August 1884 in Illinois.
GEORGE DOMM's father JOHN DOMM, was an Innkeeper/tavernowner, and was born about 1830 in Bavaria. JOHN DOMM married MARY (NORA) WHITE. She was born about 1845, probably in Ireland.
