The village of Eggersheim had just 122 people in 1794, 234 people in 1885, and 198 people in 1905. By 2010, the population rose to 232 people.

The surname Gartz and its variants are likely derived from a locality. There is a place near Euskirchen in the Mechernich called Obergartzem, and in this place there are places called "Gartzemer Street" and "Gartzemer Way". This location is about 30 minutes south of where my ancestors lived.
