Named after her deceased older sister, Rosina was called by her middle name. She was baptized on July 23, 1848, at the Lutheran church in Gontkowitz. At the same church, Rosina married Gustav Gräber, a man nearly thirty years older than her, on May 20, 1872.

7. Karl Ferdinand Jammer

8. Caroline (Gammer) Dombrowe Brenner

died January 4, 1938 in Abbotsford, Clark County, Wisconsin

Caroline's birth name was Johanna Christiane Karoline Jammer, but she later dropped the first two names and Americanized the last two. She was baptized on February 15, 1857, at the Lutheran church in Gontkowitz.

Caroline married Emil Dombrowe on April 20, 1881 and they had six children together before immigrating to the United States. Emil arrived in New York City, New York County, New York, on September 30, 1891, along with his future son-in-law Carl Frederick Stacke. Caroline and the six children followed, arriving in Baltimore, Maryland on May 19, 1892. After settling on a farm in Pine Valley, Clark County, Wisconsin, outside of Neillsville, Clark County, Wisconsin, they had two more children. Their children were Augusta, Frederick, Augusta, Louise, Otto, Paul, Rudolph, Oscar, and Edith. The family briefly moved to Fond du Lac, Fond du Lac County, Wisconsin, before moving to Colby, Clark County, Wisconsin, and then in 1912 to Abbotsford. Emil suffered a “stroke of paralysis” several years before his death, and died at their home in Abbotsford on November 26, 1934.

On July 25, 1932, Caroline married Christian Brenner, who was also widowed, in the Lutheran parsonage in Dorchester, Clark County, Wisconsin. Christian previously lived in Lafayette, Tippecanoe County, Indiana and had six children with his first wife. This marriage doesn't seem to have lasted, because when Caroline died of “old age complications” in her home less than six years later, there was no mention of her second husband in either of her published obituaries. Christian moved back to Lafayette and died there on March 24, 1947. Christian was buried with his first wife at the Asbury Cemetery in Shelby, Tippecanoe County, Indiana. Caroline and Emil are buried at Abbotsford Cemetery.

9. Karl Ferdinand Jammer
born May 11, 1860 in Liatkawe, Prussia (modern-day Latkowa, Gmina Milicz, Milicz County, Dolnośląskie Voivodeship, Poland)
died April 12, 1880 in Kollande, Prussia (modern-day Kolęda, Gmina Milicz, Milicz County, Dolnośląskie Voivodeship, Poland)

Ferdinand was born seven years to the day after the death of his namesake older brother. He was baptized the day after his birth at the Lutheran church in Gontkowitz and was called by his middle name. Ferdinand was murdered, and his body was found in a forest a month before his twentieth birthday.
