I was fortunate to have Louise Primmer, who had hosted many Primmer reunions in this area, to forward a copy of her many years of work to me. I have found the info you need. I also have the obituary of Raymond Primmer (son of Edward and Clara Ruch Primmer) and Raymond and Dorothy's 50th wedding anniversary announcement.

To your question:
-- William Edward Primmer b. 1885, d. 1958 married Clara Ruch (daughter of Christian and Barbara Wertz Ruch). Seven children.

William Edward Primmer was one of 10 children of Peter Primmer and Minerva Davis Primmer. Peter Primmer b. 28 Mar 1843 OH d. 11 Mar 1931 IL married 5 Dec 1869 Piatt Co, IL to Minerva Davis b. 20 Sep 1851 OH d. 10 Sep 1940 IL (dau of Samuel and Elizabeth Davis

Peter Primmer one of 11 children of Adam Wheeler Primmer and Leah Engle.
--Adam Wheeler Primmer b. 5 Jan 1816 (or 1813) Hocking Co OH, d. 14 Sep 1878(or 1881)Circleville OH Hocking Co, married 20 Mar 1836 Hocking Co,OH to Leah Engle b 1 Jan 1817 (1816?)d. 28 Sept 1882(1881?)Circleville, Hocking Co, OH

Adam Wheeler Primmer one of 12 children of Peter Primmer Sr. and Susannah Overmire.

--Peter Primmer Sr. b@1796 PA d.30 Jan 1871 Hocking Co OH married Susannah Overmire b. @1793 PA d. 1860-1870 OH

Peter Primmer Sr. was one of six children (3 boys/3 girls) born to John Adam Primmer and Eve Overmire. One Peter Primmer Sr's brothers, John Adam Primmer(Jr) is my lineage.

--John Adam Primmer Sr. b.8 Jan 1776 Philadelphia PA, d. @1843 Hocking Co, OH married Eve Overmire b @ 1776 d.1840-1850 Hocking Co, OH

John Adam Primmer Sr. son of Leonard Primmer (also known as Bremich/Bremick) and Margarite Whelan.
--John Adam Primmer Sr b. Germany d.?Northumberland Co, PA? came to US from Rotterdam 13 Sept 174 on ship Chance. Passenger list "Premich, Bremig, Bremich" Has footnote "Bremich also known as Primmer"

Information here was originally supplied by Edith Primmer Webb and Pauline Hickle Winslow to Harry and Louise Primmer.

I have more info on this line as well as my own John Adam Primmer Jr. line. Some lines tie in together Mathias, Engle etc and have info on those also. Hope this helps.
