Ohmenhausen was mentioned the in the historical books the first time in 1272. The preliminary name was
Ummenhausen and consisted only of a few houses. In the early days the Ohmenhausen protestant church was part of the parish in Maehringen. Deceased persons even have been buried near the church in Maehringen. Ohmenhausen is located between Reutlingen and Gomaringen and today is part of the city of Reutlingen. There’s a
direct neighborhood to Maehringen, Gomaringen and Betzingen.
The oldest Kemmler in Ohmenhausen is Jakob Kemmler (born around 1590). His wife is unknown. He is the last ancestor in the direct Kemmler line. A second line starts with Georg Kemmler (born around 1610) and his wife Maria.

The Lutheran parish records are available locally, but they are not accessible to the public. Copies of the books and registers have been microfilmed by the Wuerttembergische Evangelische Kirche. Copies of the mircofilms are also available via the Mormon church.

Naturally it is mathematical hard to say, but after my actual status in my database I can clearly say, Wankheim is no. 1 followed by Goenningen and Ohmenhausen.
