Romig Family

First Generation

Johann Adam Romig (1689-1768) was born in 1689 in Neidenstein, Palatinate, the son of Georg Wendel Romig and Margaretha Herner. He married Agnes Margaretha Bernhardt (1687-ca. 1735), daughter of Nicholaus and Elisabetha Bernhardt, in 1712 in Ittlingen. They emigrated on the Dragon in 1732. Nine children are named in Ittlingen church records (see Burgert, Northern Kraichgau), but two of these appear to have died very young, probably before they left Europe. Agnes Margaretha died soon after their arrival in Pennsylvania, and he married Maria Ursula Wanner, daughter of Mattheus and Anna Margaretha Wanner, with whom he had five additional children.
