An American Adventure
Auglaize County, Ohio - John Rammelmeyer married Franziska Miller Klipfel in 1853 in Auglaize County, Ohio after the death of her first husband Augustin Klipfel in 1851. Franziska and John Rammelmeyer were enumerated in the 1860 census in the sixth ward of Dayton, Montgomery County, Ohio with seven children: four by Franziska's first marriage and three from John and Franziska's marriage.

In 1862, John married for a second time, to Christena Geisert, who brought with her children from a previous marriage. John and Christena had two sons, William H. and Franklin. John Rammelmeyer died in February 1899 in Piqua, Ohio.
