She was born June 3, 1860 in the Town of Two Rivers, Wisc. Her Godparents are Friedrich M. Pauleer and Mrs. Chr. Borgwardt, represented Frau C.

Henrietta Eva Margaretha Weitermann born Oct. 17, 1867 in Centerville (died Jan. 19, 1869 in Centerville)
George Christian Weitermann born May 27, 1869 in Centerville

Philomena died at the time of George's birth. A newspaper article has her giving birth while there was an Indian scare and everyone was running toward the water. No doctor or midwife was available to assist in the birth. She is buried in Cleveland, WI. In 1879 John moved the family to Ahnapee (Algoma) WI. In 1986. John bought land in Valmy, Door County, WI and in 1891 his home burned. He died in 1906 at his daughter, Caroline's home where he was living. He is buried in the Valmy church cemetery near the road.

We have documents to back everything up. Have John & Philomena's we marriage record, census records, church records, etc. Am attaching a picture of Philomena/Phillipine/Phebe

Will send you the research from German relative, Hans Weitermann which applies to this family in Wisconsin. My husband, Bill, is a descendant of Charles Weiterman, brother of Emma Weiterman Richter. J. Richter owned land next to Charles Weiterman on the 1899 ,1914 and 1937 on the Jacksonport platt maps. They must have rented it out since they were in Escanaba.

We have a lot of information about the Weiterman family--makes a good story! You'll enjoy reading it. This was a very good, hard-working family--one that you will be happy to add to your family tree! Thank you for the pictures!

Thank you for more pictures! Any chance at all that Emma had a picture of her father? Did she have a wedding picture? We have wedding pictures for the rest of her siblings.

I printed out the pages of the Weitermann family history. Will get them in the mail to you very soon. Thank you for your address. Another Weiterman relative just moved to Florida from Sturgeon Bay, WI. Her name is Deb Bathke, She shared a lot of her research with me, as you will see in the pages I will send. She also is the one who sent me the picture of Philomena and the wedding pictures I mentioned above. She is a descendant of Caroline and Augusta (sisters)! Augusta's daughter married Caroline's (Lena's) son. She fell in love with him while she was visiting from MN and helping Lena aftet the birth of twins, and with the care of John Weitermann Sr. who was living with Lena.

I don't remember where in Florida Deb is, but could give you her email address if you are interested in meeting her.

Hi There!

Ran across your homepage on the internet as I was looking for Weiterman relatives. Emma Weitermann Richter is related to my husband. We have researched the Weitermann family and have made contact with relatives in Germany, who have shared their research back to the 1600's.

For a start, Emma's mother's name was Philomena/Phillipine Jost Weitermann. She came from the Rhine region of Prussia. Her parent's names were Charles & Elizabeth Jost. Philomena came to the US through New Orleans.

The Weitermann's are from Hardemansgruen, Germany--near Lobenstein. The family resided there for hundreds of years.

Will be happy to share research with you!
