The Gompers Emmerich Family
from Emmerich-am-Rhein, in the Duchy of Cleves
c.1775


  • The surname Gompers is derived from the given name Gompel.
  • There are numerous spelling variations including Gompels, Gomperts, Gompertz, Gomperz, Gumpel. Gumperts, Gumpertz and Gumperz.
  • Emmerich-am-Rhein, in the Duchy of Cleves, part of the Kingdom of Prussia after 1701, was administered within the Prussian Rhine Province from 1822-1945 and is now part of Germany in the Province of Nordrhein-Westphalia.

  • This page shows the descendants of my great, great, grand aunt, Henrietta (Jette/Harriet) 'Solomon' HARING who married Solomon Shabtay alias Samuel 'Moses' GOMPERS.
  • Sarah WENNINK, the daughter of Henrietta's sister, Rachel 'Solomon' HARING and Wolf WNNINK, married Henrietta's grandson, Henry 'Solomon' GOMPERS.
  • My great grandfather, Simon ISAACS, was married to Henrietta's neice, Elizabeth (Betsy) HARING, daughter of Henrietta's brother, Alexander 'Solomon' HARING and Rachel PEREIRA MENDOZA.
  • Simon's brothers, Samuel and Aaron ISAACS (PELSER), were each married to one of Henrietta's granddaughters, sisters Bella and Harriet 'Solomon' GOMPERS respectively.
  • Simon's son, Alexander ISAACS, was married to Rosa 'Hartog' HARING, Henrietta's grand niece, granddaughter of Henrietta's other brother, Moses 'Solomon' HARING and Rozetta PARK. All perfectly legal.

    1861 UK Census - Samuel GOMPERS & Harriet (Henrietta nee HARING)

    NOTES:
      Amelia GARATZ nee BOEKVERKOPER is the mother of Harriet. After the death of Harriet's father Solomon HARING, she remarried to Leendert 'Judah'GERRITSE(N).
    1. The 1851/53 List of Jewish Residents of Amsterdam Mietje is shown living with her son Moses 'Solomon' HARING at 108 Jodenbreestraat (see record and map)
    2. The 1861 UK Census shows Mietje either visiting or living with her daughter Henrietta GOMPERS nee HARING at 2, Fort Street, Old Artillery Ground, Middlesex, England and records her name as Amelia GARATZ.
    3. The 1871 UK Census shows Mietje living with her son Moses 'Solomon' HARING at 20, Butler Street, London and records her name as Emilie GERODS or GEROTS.
    4. The 1881 UK Census shows Mietje living with her son Moses 'Solomon' HARING at 4, Butler Street, London (see record and map) and records her name as Miller GARRATS.
    5. Her death registration records her name as Milly GERREDS.
    6. BOEKVERKOPER translates to bookseller which was presumably the family business at the time.
    7. The previous surname PRINS was used in honour of the Prince of Orange. The family later reverted to the surname PRINS or PRINCE.

    NOTES:
      In 1870, their widowed daughter, Catherine, and a son were living with them in New York.
      They possibly moved to New York to help support her until she remarried her 1st. cousin, Emanuel GOMPERS
      Samuel and Henrietta do not appear in the 1880 US Census nor the 1881 UK Census.
      They appear to have returned to England some time between 1871 and 1879.
      Their death registrations show them as having died in Whitechapel, London, England in 1881 and 1879 respectively.

    • NOTES:
      This is the earliest record found for Samuel's household.
      His oldest son, recorded here as Solomon, appears to have chosen to use the name Samuel in later records.
      No census records were found for 1870 and 1890.
      In the 1900 US Census he was recorded in the houshold of his uncle Emanuel but no records were found for the rest of his immediate family.

    • From such humble beginnings in the poorest part of London's East End, Samuel's accomplishments are legend. Born in England to Dutch parents he emigrated to the U.S.A. As a cigar maker he joined his union, something that would have made his father proud as in his own version of his family tree he mentions all of those in his immediate family who joined a union. Samuel went on to become founder and life president of the American Federation of Labor and was forefront in the instigation of Labor Day as a National Holiday. It is most satisfying to see that he was appreciated by a grateful nation as seen by the funeral cortege, the statuary in the Samuel Gompers Memorial Park, Washington D.C., Gompers Park, Chicago, Illinois and East Market Street, San Antonio, Texas, where he died, his appearance on a 1950 3c US postage stamp, on the cover of Time Magazine and the naming after him of parks in Washington and Chicago, several school and a U.S. Navy vessel.

    • There are numerous references to Samuel on the internet. I include this one for Wikipedia as it includes further links & sources.
