LAMMERS

 

Gerhard Lammers (1885-1935) was born at Haqelgreen,* Wisconsin. At the age of twelve he came to a farm east of Breda with his parents. As a young man he worked as a farmhand and then operated a dray business in Breda. He also owned and operated a saloon and later a pool hall in the building now known as the Corner Casino. Mr. Lammers was a director of the Breda Savings Bank for nearly thirty years, from 1906 until his death.

His wife was Josephine Schroeder and they were the parents of ten children, nine sons and one daughter, two of whom died in infancy. Three sons, Joe, Henry, and Gerhard are deceased. Surviving children are: Mrs. Mayme Heiman, Tony, Albert, William and Herman.

*Likely this is Hazel Green, in Grant County, WI.

REACTION from a descendant: Note from Thomas Lammers

I just got a computer and looked up Gerhard. I am his grandson, now living in Marion Iowa. I have seen a few errors and omissions in the information given on your web site. Gerhard's  grandfather (also named Gerhard) was born in Germany April 20, 1821. My grandfather was born in Hazel Green Wis. Oct. 19, 1855. He moved to Carroll County 1867. Married Josephine Schroeder May 5, 1891. They had nine boys and a girl as follows. Clemens, born 6-21-1892, John, born 10-17-1894, Mary (Mame) born 3-29-1896, Henry (Hiene) born 10-24-198, Joseph, born 5-11-1901, Anthony (Tony) Born 9-14-1902, Gerhard (Toots) born 8-14-1904, Albert (Gilliy) born 8-5-1908, William, born 10-14-1910 and Herman, born 7-3-1913. All these have passed away except Herman who is living in West Union Iowa.

This is probably more information than you need or want. I have much more if you want it. Just contact me at tomlammers@msn.com

Bill Smith asked his permission to record the above, here was the reply he got:

Dr. Smith, I would be pleased to have you add the information I have sent you to the web site. You have my permission as well as my brothers. I will be glad to send you more of you want or need it. My grandfather was one six children born to Gerhard Lammers and Anna Mary (Wibben) Lammers. These are my Great Grand parents, both were born in German and both are buried in Breda, Iowa. Just let me know if I can be of any more help to you. TOM

Ludwig

 

 (On page 81of The Breda Centennial Book, Older Days Renewed 1877-1977)

Joachim (James) Ludwig (1846-1922) was one of the first five settlers of Kniest Township. Joachim was born in Beckereide, Germany and came to America with his parents at the age of sixteen. They settled at Dubuque and resided there for six years.

In 1860 he came to Kniest Township with four other men and homesteaded on the farm now owned by his grandson, Clarence Ludwig. He lived on this same farm for fifty-three years.

On February 2, 1873 Mr. Ludwig married Barbara Legler in Wisconsin, and ten children were born to this union. Seven passed away at a young age. Those remaining were Mike, Albert, and Mrs. Ted Snyder. His first wife died May 4, 1892, and in the fall of that year he married Mrs. Henrietta Feldman.
