Jesmer Family History

Jesmer Family History

“the dead are not far from us… they cling in some strange way to what is most still and deep within us” William Butler Yeats

Some may be wondering why there is a page about family history on a Christian house church web site. I put it on here because I thought it is important to bless all people, believer or non-believer. Not every family member is going to appreciate my expositions on the Bible. They may not want to hear the gospel from me. But that doesn’t mean that I don’t have something to share with them that will bless their lives.  I don’t have much, but one thing I do have is some knowledge of my branch of the family tree that I can put out there and share with those whom are interested. I am also making a family history page because I want to put the names of my distant ancestors on the internet. If there is some distant relative making a name search, then they will find the page and see some pics and hopefully they can contribute some information or some old pictures or some interesting stories. I put Generation 1 as the generation the farthest back that I could find info on. Generation 15 is the generation of my own kids.  The names with the aster ix in front of them is the direct Jesmer family chain. Those who are related to Joseph A. Jesmer and Mary Ann (Robideau) Jesmer can find a lot of their ancestors listed here.

Another reason why I set out to do this. At various times throughout my life my father (Ted Jesmer) mentioned about Nelson A. Jesmer. (my g-grandfather) I knew very little about him, except that he was born in America, that he was a rich man and that he had three children, one of which was my grandfather, Harvey Jesmer. It was also mentioned that he would have passed on his wealth if it were not for the Depression, which robbed him of it. That is about all I knew. And that is more than anyone would know if  someone did not set out to find out the details of this man’s life. And so my father, Nelson E. (Ted) , set out to find out as much as he could on Nelson’s life. There was much to be learned about him. A great paper trail was left behind concerning this man, with which his entire life could be painted He was frequently in the newspapers of every community he lived in. He loved local politics and was a small business entrepreneur. He was a pioneer of every place he moved to. He is especially important because he was involved in the pioneering of the Western USA by the Jesmer family and also he was the one brought our branch of the family tree to Western Canada.   Many of his life events were documented in one way or another or could be extrapolated from several other sources. I was amazed. I began to know who Nelson A. Jesmer was in detail. And so I set out to document the findings that my father, Ted and myself made in a meaningful way. Since then, genealogy has been a hobby of mine and something I can share with my dad. I can also share what I learned with others. Even you.
