Jacob Gaumer
(1773- ? )


Jacob Gaumer was born on Nov. 21, 1773, thought to be a son of Johann Dietrich and Maria ‘Elizabeth’ (Meinert) Gaumer Sr.

His name has only been found in “Gaumer Family Notes” compiled in 1964 by Eber Cockley of Meyersdale, PA, co-founder of the Somerset (PA) Historical Society.

In 1796, the notes say, Jacob married Catherine Keiser (1765- ? ).

They produced four known children – Daniel Gaumer, Lydia Gaumer, Anna Maria Gaumer and George Gaumer.

Their fates are lost to history for now.
