Descendants of Philipp Anthon RUMIG & Margaretha WACHER

The following is a history, in genealogical format, of the descendants of Philipp & Margaretha RUMIG , as far as I have been able to compile to date. Phillip was born in 1791 in Waibstadt,Baden, Germany. Jim and Kay GREGG in the Diary of Sadie Estelle ROUMEY provides the following description of the Rumig migration to Bruce County .

Phillip Rummig, born in Germany in 1791 came to Canada with three sons about 1840 and became a Canadian citizen in 1841 at Berlin ( now Kitchener ). His son William born in 1827 married Louisa Reisch and farmed first in Brant Township, later taking the crown deed for Lot 9, Con. 12, Greenock Township. William and Louisa had four sons and one daughter. Their eldest son Joseph married Mary Jane REID whose father,
John REID and his wife Eliza Jane McCully had taken the crown deed for Lot 9, Con.13, Greenock Township.

Joseph and Mary Jane purchased the West 1/2 of Lot 6, Con. 13, Greenock Township and raised a family of ten children, four sons and six daughters. The family lived in a two-storey log house with a board lean-to until 1899 when a white brick house that still stands was built. This branch of the family changed its name to Roumey.

Jim and Kay GREGG researched the family of Joseph RUMIG and Mary Jane REID . Thanks to their work this branch of the family is as well documented as it is. Before the turn of the century this family changed their name to ROUMEY .

Sadie Estelle ROUMEY 1890 - 1917 kept a diary for several years. These diaries are in the possession of the
PILGRIM Family since Sadie CAMERON-PILGRIM was her daughter. Jim GREGG has transcribed these diaries and you can be read Sadie's Diary.

The following pages are a compilation of the descendants of this family, but this genealogy is by no means complete and ultimately I hope to uncover more information about the RUMMIG , RUMIG , ROMEY and ROUMEY families. Meanwhile I would be pleased to hear from all of those reading these pages that recognize errors or omissions or have additional information that could be used to further enhance this history.
