SOURCES:

Emerentina's year of birth and first husband's name were known from her entry on the 1880 census. DeeDee Weber supplied information from her marriage record with Henry Sommer which gave her maiden name and place of birth. This coincided with entries for two of her children listed in the Osnabrueck emigration index. The record of her first marriage was located in Boerger records which noted her parents' names and year and place of birth. Her birth/baptism entry was then located at the same parish with her name looking something like Immki.
