Discussion & Documentation: 

Johannes Romeis, servant in the castle in Gersfeld, son of Georg Romeis in Kippelbach, was born 30 March 1715 in Kippelbach.  He married 28 June 1748 in Gersfeld to Anna Heun, daughter of Peter Heun (born 29 November 1717 in Kippelbach). 

Johannes Romeis, his wife, and two children immigrated to Russia.   Only one family member survived the journey – the youngest child Anna, who was taken in by another family in Frank.  Since there were no male descendants of this family, the surname does not continue.
