This is very interesting. I am particularly fond of the names Caspar and Elmer. I definitely think they should go on the list of future baby names!

In my data base, I have a Johann Adam Reum from the Breitungen area, born about November 1800 to Anna Catharina Reum, father unknown. His godparent was Johann Addam, son of Christoph Blaufuß. I can send you a photo of that birth record, if you would like it. Carol

Just found this site...quite old but I hope you all are still there. I have Reum in my family tree...Johannes Adam Reum m. Eva Catherine ?? Their son, Herman Frank Reum was b. in 1837 in Hamburg?, Germany and died on 31 May 1887 in Cincinnati. Herman married Friedericke Berta Foertmeyer who was a sister of my great grandfather. It appears the Daniel referenced here might be a brother to Herman. Anything you care to share would be greatly appreciate - willing to share what I have on Herman's family.
