Note:  Records at Middendorf Funeral Home in Covington, KY list August Boehmer as the father of Anna M. Boehmer (my second great grandmother), with surviving sisters Frances and Mary. However, there were no daughters listed in the 1880 census for August Boehmer, but there were for Henry Boehmer...Minnie, Theresa, Frances and Mary. In addition, the Covington City Directory shows a furniture store, owned by Henry Bohmer, on 1133 Scott Street. John H. Rabe was a sales representative at the same location.  I believe August Boehmer was a brother to Henry.
