I am doing research of the HANS SOMMER family beginning in 1550 of Switzerland. My husband's great grandfather was Johannes Sommer b. September 25, 1818; d. January 31, 1899; m. Magdalena Amstutz March 14 1840. To this marriage, there was 12 children: Katherine, Christian, Abraham, Elisabeth, Isaak, Magdelena, Rebecca, Jakob, Johannes, Maria Anna, Peter and Anna. Abraham, a son of Isaak (Abraham), Jakob, and Maria Anna are known to have come to America.

Abraham (my husband's grandfather) b. February 13, 1844; d. May 30, 1924; m. Anna Gerber November 14, 1868. Their last residence was in Pandora, Ohio and they are buried in Pandora Cemetery.

Jakob Sommer/Sommers family also settled in the Pandora area.
Jakob Sommer b. January 20, 1851; d. April 24, 1933; m. 1. Marian Amstutz and 2. Lydia Amstutz January 13, 1891. Their children are Noah, John, Martha, Phillip, Leo, Alvin, Edwin, Walter, and Ezra.
