  • Notes 
    • He was confirmed in 1688 in Altengronau. He emgirated to America i n 1710. The records of Altengronau were searched from the earliest r ecords to 1800. The family of Georg Killmer is last mentioned is not listed in Germany after Jun 1709. Proof that it is the right famil y besides the names and dates fitting perfectly comes from the New York subsisterary rolls.

      From 4 August 1710-25March 1712 the family is listed in these rolls as 4 people over the age of 10, 3 children under the age of 10.
      The next roll dated 24 Jun 1712 the family is listed as 6 over 10, 1 under ten. In other words, two of the children in the family turned
      ten years old between March and June of 1712.

      This fits exactly to be the twin sons Simon and Michael whose birthday to turn 10 was 18 Jun. This exact connection and all other connections show this is the same family.

      Some concern may be made by Kilmer descendants that the family name was Johann Georg Killmer or Georg Kilmer in Germany rather than the earlier supposed Johannes Jurrian Kuhlmann. The latter name is the Dutch equivallent to the German Johann Georg. Kuhlmann is also a Dutch confusion.

      The name in Germany was actually Georg Killmer and thus the family name was not changed to Kilmer from Kuhlmann as earlier supposed, but was Killmer originally in Germany.

      It is interesting that the alternate spellings found in the Altengronau Parish are Kulmer in the earliest records, Killner, and Kilmer, all variations al so found in New York records.
