I think it is quite probable that this place name is badly misspelled 
based on what it sounded like to someone.   I searched through the 
long village list on the Odessa3 site http://www.odessa3.org but 
found no close matches.

At the same site I searched the St. Pete records.  I looked at Allmer 
/ Almer / Ulmer / Ullmer (potential for the latter two being 
misinterpreted by the extractor) and found no matches.  There was a 
Michael Allmer / Almer fathering children in the 1860s / 70s.  If you 
know the names of some of Margaretha's siblings, you might be able to 
make a match.
