Notes:  Waldemar Romeis Hoyer was born 24 Feb 1900 in Matawan, Monmouth, New Jersey.  His parents were Waldemar L. and Elna Hoyer, who had come to the United States from Denmark in 1894.  He was christened on 24 Apr 1900 at St. Stephans Danish Lutheran Church, Perth Amboy, New Jersey.

In the 1900 U.S. census at age 3 months, Waldemar was living with his parents and brother Cai, age 4 years, on Little Street in the Matawan Twp., Matawan Borough.  One sibling had previously died.  Waldemar's father was a fitter in a terra cotta plant.

By the 1910 U.S. census, Waldemar's family had moved to Perth Amboy, where they lived at 378 Barclay Street.  Cai had evidently died, but Waldemar, age 10 years, had a younger brother Edgar, age 7 years.  Waldemar registered for the WWI draft on 12 Sep 1918.  He was described as being of medium height and build, with blue eyes and brown hair.  He was employed a clerk for Evans Engineering Corporation located on Old Bridge.

In the 1920 U.S. census, Waldemar was still working in an office, perhaps as a draftsman.  Waldemar's father was now a foreman at the terra cotta plant.

Waldemar married Nellie Marie Miller around 1922, probably in Perth Amboy.  Their son Vincent E. was born 13 Dec 1924 in Metuchen, New Jersey.  In the 1930 U.S. census, the family was living at 141 Amboy Avenue in Metuchen.  Vincent was five years old, and Waldemar was now a mechanical engineer in the "concrete machine" business.

In October 1930, Waldemar took his wife Nellie and son Vincent on a trip to visit Denmark.  They arrived back in New York aboard the Frederik VIII on 12 Oct 1930.  They took the same trip in 1932, arriving back in New York by the same ship on 27 Jun 1932.

In the 1940 U.S. census, Waldemar and Nellie were still living at 141 Amboy Avenue, and Waldemar was listed as a mechanical engineer.  Their home had a $10,000. value, and Waldemar had earned $4,425. in 1939.  Their son Vincent was 15 years, and they had a daughter, age 5.

Waldemar's wife Nellie died in 1960.  Waldemar moved to Sarasota at some unknown date.  In April 1969 he married Juanita Esclaston Hammann.  He died in August 1975, his last place of residence being Sarasota, Florida.  He is buried with his first wife Nellie in the Alpine Cemetery, Perth Amboy, New Jersey.
