About Our Family Research

My research subject is Jacob Kuellmer/Killmer/Kilmer who was born in Altendorf, Germany in 1829. He arrived at the Port of New York on July 1, 1857. Aboard the same ship was Augustine Ritte and they were married in Cincinnati, Ohio on September 1, 1857. By 1861 they have a tailor shop across the Ohio River in Newport, Kentucky. They raised seven children. My line is through their son William Kilmer, who married Lillian Bohrer, and his son William Kilmer. who married Iva Myrtle Applegate. My father, Clinton Kilmer, who married Eva O'Hair, brought the Kilmer surname to Middletown, Ohio when he came here to work following his service in WWII.
