    • RESEARCH_NOTES:
      1. The book "History of Carrollton Manor, Frederick County, Maryland," by William Jarboe Grove, Lime Kiln, Maryland, 1928, copy in Frederick Historical Society, Frederick, Maryland, p. 383, provides significant information about Michael Römer (with variant spellings of Raymer, Romer Remer, and Reymer) by giving us his will, the name of an additional wife, some of his deeds, his civic and military service, his immigration, some of the spouses of his children, and three of his grandchildren. Michael's obituary reports he had six daughters and two sons of which both sons, three daughters, and their mother had preceded him in death; however, the will only provides us with the names of four daughters -- one of whom, Maria Barbara, had predeceased him. He does not mention the other names of his deceased children nor their children even though his obituary says he had 37 grandchildren. Additionally he makes no reference to a second wife, Catherine Kemp, who may have also predeceased him. The quote:
      "44 - Michael Raymer who loaned $1,630 was on the committee of observation and attended a meeting held at the court house Jan. 24th, 1775 and was active in the cause of independence, born 1715 died Nov. 25th, 1800, aged 85 years, 2 months, is buried in the Lutheran graveyard. His will was made Sep. 11, 1794. Signed Michael Romer. He divided his estate real and personal in four parts to his daughters, Magdalona, wife of Henry Foutz, Elizabeth, wife of James Beatty, Christona, wife of Mathias Buckey and to the children of his deceased daughter, Barbara Hass, namely, Michael Hass, Christiana, wife of George Buckey and Frederick Hass, the remaining fourth part of my estate real and personal. Tradition says Michael Raymer married Catherine Kemp, who landed in Philadelphia with her father, Conrad Kemp August 17th, 1733 and is of the well known Kemp family of the County. In connection with Michael Remer (1715-1800), in a list of foreigners 252 Palatines imported in the ship "Winter Gallery" and qualified Sep. 5, 1738 at Philadelphia there appears the name John Michael Romer (also Remer) aged 23, which age corresponds with the year of birth 1715. 'The Meadow' first granted by Lord Baltimore to John Van Meter and subsequently resurveyed Nov. 2nd, 1755, was patented June 9th, 1756 to Michael Raymer, over which he had a dispute with Daniel Dulaney who laid out Frederick in 1745 and owned Locust Level containing 3,800 acres and Taskers Chance containing 7,700 acres both of these tracts adjoined 'The Meadows.' Dulaney was a Tory, and his land was confiscated, after some litigation the title to the land was awarded to Mr. Raymer. Michael Raymer was very active during the Revolutionary period, and held a commisision in the Patriot army. Mr. Raymer deeded this land to Richard Potts in 1792. Mr. Reymer gave the land for the Lutheran Church at Church Hill north of Frederick."
