Leaves on this Family Tree

I Think I Might Be Inbred

1st of all, I wasn't born in the south. I wasn't even born in the southern part of Indiana and I was born on the north side of the town we lived in . . and we lived on the west side.

On my family tree, I have relatives who were born in the Virginias, but they are on anoother branch . . not the "inbred" one.

On my Gaumer Family Tree I am in both the 8th (or maybe 9th, or 10th or 11th)and 12th generations . . . and I am having the hardest time seeing this. So, here goes. I am going to start with me and see how I get to my "founding Father.: Here goes . . . 


Me . . . Paula Gaumer (Tooke)
Dad . . . Paul L Gaumer (19 17 - 1992)
Grandpa . . . Henry M Gaumer (1885 - 1953)
G-Grandpa . . . Jeremiah F  Gaumer (1860 - 1892)
G-G-GRANDPA . . . Moses S Gaumer (1829 - 1898) m Mary Anna Knedler
G-G-G-Grandpa . . . Solomon Gaumer (1809 - 1860)
G-G-G-G-Grandpa . . . Johann Dietrich "Dieter" Gaumer (1775 - 1830)
G-G-G-G-G-Grandpa . . . Johann Friedrich Gaumer (1749 - 1796)
G-G-G-G-G-G-Grandpa . . . Johann Christoph Gaumer (1687 - 1763)
G-G-G-G-G-G-G-Grandpa . . . Johann Lorenz Gaumer (1666 - 1736)
Founding Father . . . Johann Dietrich Gaumer (1619 - ?)

No, for my Twin . .Ala Haley Mills in "The Parent Trap." I play myself in both roles.

Me . . . Paula Gaumer (Tooke)
Dad .  . . Paul L Gaumer
Grandpa . . . Henry M Gaumer
G-Grandpa . . . Jeremiah F Gaumer
G-G-GRANDMOTHER. . . Mary Ann Knedler (1830 - 1878) m Moses S Gaumer
G-G-G-GrandMA . . . Salome Gaumer (1799 - 1869)
G-G-G-G-Grandpa . . . Johann Dietrich Gaumer (1760 - 1818)
G-G-G-G-G-Grandpa . . . Johan Dietrich "Dieter" Gaumer (1775 - 1830)
G-G-G-G-G-G Grandpa . . . Johann Christoph Gaumer (1687 - 1763)
G-G-G-G-G-G-G-Grandpa . . . Johann Lorenz Gaumer (1666 - 1736)
Founding Father . . . Johann Dietrich Gaumer (1619 -)

Best I can figure is that Johann Dietrich "Dieter" Gaumer had two sons, Johan Dietrich Gaumer and  Solomon Gaumer. Solomon had a son Moses and Johan Dietrich had a grand daghter Mary Ann.

So Johan Dietrich "Dieter" Gaumer's great grand daughter Mary Ann married his grandson Moses.

I would still like to see a line drawn pedigree chart from the Founding Father to Moses and Mary Ann. I think it would end up telling me that Moses married his cousin Salome's daughter.

If any of you are "real" genealogists, let me know  if I'm right.

Now . . what the HELL have they done to improve (not) Blogger? It may work great when I am on IE, but is SUCKS EGGS BIG TIME on Firefox. I can't see any of the things that were above th epost . . like B I U, Link, Photos, etc. It better get better . . I like to do mmy posts from this computer so I don't hog the desktop =((((((

Oh, can't find spell check either, so good luck reading this!!

  3. You can't help what your way back family did......maybe I'm blessed to 'not know' about my heritage. I have nothing on either side. My cousin has some on my mother's side and is supposed to send it to me but I haven't seen it yet. I'm kind of curious.
