Looking for information on Adam Domer, my Great-Grandfather who married Fianna Farber. Their daughter, Oma Floy Domer was my Grandmother. Oma married Calvin Roscoe Schalliol in Elkhart, Indiana June 28, 1913 in Elkhart, Indiana. Calvin Schalliol's Mother was Matilda Harter and his Father was Julius Gerhard Schalliol. Information on the Domer or Harter families of the St. Joseph, and Elkhart Counties in Indiana would be appreciated.

I am also researching the same families that you are: Domer, Harter, and Hartman.

My G-Great-grandfather was Moses Domer who married Phebe Hartman. I am also related to the Harters. My G-grandmother was Matilda Harter. All families lived in the Elkhart and surrounding areas of Indiana.

Since you seem to have far more information than I do, could you fill me in. If I have any information that will help you, I will be glad to assist. My G-Grandfather was Adam Domer, brother to Sarah Ellen Domer.

Both my great great grandmother, Sarah Domer (1806-1891) who married Solomon Keyser (1805-1874) and my
step-great great great grandmother,Mary Polly Domer (1779-1854) are Domers.
Adam Domer was born 1854 in IN and died 1895. He was married at least twice.First
to a Flora Ella Johnston about 1877. She
died in childbirth. She died Sept. 1878 in Elkhart Co., IN after the birth of their
son, Samuel Madison Johnston Domer. Do you have anything else on Adam or his parents?
Love to exchange info.

Let me know what you are interested in. Sharon

Moses Domer is Adam Domer's father. Adam is my G-grandfather. He married Fianna Greenwalt December 1, 1887 after the death of hist first wife, Flora. His children with Fianna were Ruth, Pearl, Oma and Harvey (Harry). Oma was my Grandmother.

I would appreciate all the information you have on Moses and his parents, etc. I will be glad to give you any information that I can as well.

One more note of interest. My G-g-g-grandmother was Mary Lydia Leighty who married John Charles Breidenthal in 1827. He was born in Franklin County, PA.

Do you know anything about the Leighty's?

Thanks for your help.

Do you have all of the children of Moses? I only have 7. You have Fianna Greenwalt as the second wife of Adam Domer. Was she married prior to marrying Adam Domer? Was she married to a Farber? Which is Fianna's maiden name? Moses' father was Jacob Domer born Sept. 1, 1779 and married about 1805 to a Mary Olinger. They had at least 6 children. Jacob Domer is a brother to my step-great great great grandmother, Mary Polly Domer who was the second married of Daniel Keyser. They lived in Tuscarawas Co., OH. Jacob Domer's brother, Michael Domer, is the grandfather of my great great grandmother, Sarah Elizabeth Domer (1806-1891) who married Daniel's son, Solomon Keyser. Do you have any info on Jacob and Mary Domer?

Hello Sharon.

I just found out that Moses Domer was Adam Domer's father by way of the marriage certificate for Adam and Fianna.

Fianna Greenwalt (maiden name) had three husbands: Christian S. Farber was her first; Adam Domer was her second; and Cyrus Myers was her third. She was widowed each time.

I have no information on Moses and Phoebe and just found out from you that Jacob Domer was Moses father so I am missing a lot of information.

Have you done any research on the Leichty surname. As I mentioned before, my third G-grandmother was Mary Lydia Leighty (Lichty) from Pennsylvania. I can't seem to make any headway regarding her family. Wouldn't it be funny if we were related distantly by more than one surname?

Dear Jane,
Moses was born Dec. 31 1821 Tuscarawas Co., OH and married Sept. 11, 1846 to Phoebe. He died May 28 1901 in harrison Twp., Elkhart Co., IN, buried in Inbody Cemetery in Elkhart Co., IN. Phoebe was the daughter of Adam W. hartman and Catherine Buzzard, was born oct 15 1828 OH. She died Dec. 23 1902 Elkhart Co., IN, buried Inbody Cemetery, Elkhart Co. I do work on the Leichty/Liechty, Lichti line. I do not have anyone that fits your name or dates in my file. Maybe, if we check out more dates we might hook it together. The Leichtys came from Alsace, France, but had lived in Switzerland prior. I would not be surprised that they had come from Alsace prior to that and probabaly German. They spoke German.
Love to mare another connection. My email is Sharon

In my data I have a Moses Domer who is a brother to my ggggrandmother Lydia Domer Keim. I have no birthdate for Moses, but Lydia was born 28 May 1810 in Holmes Co. Ohio. Her parents are George Domer and Catherine Boyer. This is as far as my information goes. Is this a possible connection?
