    Marriage 1 Mary OVELGOENNE b: FEB 1834 in Oldenberg, Germany
    • Married: 13 NOV 1860 in Hamilton County, OH
    • Note:
      According to a family story, Henry and Mary met on the ship that brought them to America. Mary became seasick and Henry offered his boot for Mary to rest her head against. According to the 1900 census, Henry and Mary had been married for 40 years, which supports the story. (The person who told me this story said that Mary's maiden name was Grimm, so this story may have been in reference to someone else).

      There is a Hamilton County marriage record for a Heinrich Boehmer and Anna M. Ovelgoenne on November 13, 1860.
