Dear C. Brown,The information that you posted about Kate Roemer was correct, except for her parents.My g-great grandparents, were her parents.My g-grandfather was her brother, mymaternal grand-mother was Kate's niece. Jacob, born 1866 in Orland Twp., Cook Co., IL was her brother , not her father.Emma Roemer, born 1877 in Orland her was her sister, not her mother. I have found 12 children in the family, my mother always told me that there were 13 children.E-mail me and I will tell you their names. So long.Marilynmarkennelson@msn.comP.S. I think that makes us 3rd cousins.
