8. Jacob D2 Wommer (Johann Nickolas1) was born in Birkenfeld, Oldenburg, Germany April 1845. The 1900 census notes his birth place as Germany and has an immigration date. of 1847. I have placed Jacob as the child of Nickel Wommer and Marie Marker as found in the LDS IGI records.
He married Martha Ellen McClure in New Castle, Lawrence Co, PA, September 04, 1873. Mattie was born in Lawrence Co, PA February 24, 1843. Mattie(5712) was the daughter of Samuel McClure and Mary Margaret Bortmass.
He was christened in Birkenfeld, Oldenburg, Germany, April 20, 1845. Jacob D Wommer is listed as having served from Wilmington Twp, Lawrence Co, PA, during the Civil War, in Co. B, 100th Regiment, P.V.I. "The Roundheads" Regiment. Companies B, E, F, H, I and K of the "Roundheads" were raised in Lawrence Co, PA. Jacob served from February 24, 1864 to July 24, 1865, when he was mustered out with the regiment. At the time of their marriage (1873) Jacob was residing in St. Petersburg, Clarion Co, PA., and "Mattie" was a resident of New Castle, Lawrence Co, PA. Perhaps Jake had gone to the St. Petersburg area because of the (then active) exploration for oil in that area. Reference: M. E. Sica research
