    Three Gompf Brothers from Nieder-Ofleiden

  • Notes 
    • "Nicholas Gompf, being the eldest son, farmed the home place. He married Louise Lorch, a neighboring farmer's daughter. They had thirteen children. Three of these children died as infants. They raised the ten remaining children -- 3 sons and 7 daughters - on this farm. Kate; Fred; Will; Minnie; Liz; Louise; Julia; Harry; Millie, and Gussie were all born in this farm home. Nicholas and Louise also cared for his parents and later, until his death, her father at the family home." [Ray Gompf]

      They lost 3 children to diphtheria in one day.

      "Nicholas died at the age of 84 years in the original farm home of his father, George. No one out west was able to attend his funeral. He was buried in Listowal Cemetery." [information given to Annie Gompf by Millie (Gompf) Cairns]
