WESSLING

Joseph Wessling was born in 1831, in Westphalia, Germany and came to America in 1861. Christina Hoelter was born in Silesia, Germany in 1842, and came to this country at the age of thirteen. They were married at New Vienna, Iowa in 1863, and came to Breda in 1872, and bought the farm one mile southeast of Breda in 1883. They retired in Breda in 1899.

Their children were Helena, John, Elizabeth, Henry, Tony, Clara, Louis, Joe C., George and Bernard (twins), and Anna.

George Wessling was the first Breda native ordained to the priesthood in June 1909. He served at parishes in Carroll (Sts. Peter & Paul), Coon Rapids, Wesley, Pocahontas, and Auburn. He died February 19, 1956. A gifted speaker, Father Wessling often was called upon to preach sermons and deliver addresses on many occasions and events throughout the Diocese of Sioux City. Possessed of a good knowledge of music and fine singing voice, Father Wessling was, for many years, director of the priests’ choir.

Woerdehoff

I am sending some information recently sent to me by Hilary Rauch. His family including Rufus Rauch, J. Norbert Rauch, Melvin Schulte, Mrs. Norbert Gross, Hilary and Wayne Rauch did the research and were kind enough to share with me and have given me permission to send it to you to include with the information on the Woerdehoff family.

Conrad was the only Woerdehoff in his lineage to make the great gamble of emigrating to America. A "Reise-Pass fur das Inland", a pass to travel within the country which was also a passport permitting him and his wife and their five children to emigrate to America., was issued to Conrad Woerdehoff by the Royal Prussian government on April 13, 1857.  The place of issue was Buren, the county seat.  His birthplace and residence are given as Hegensdorf, Westfalen, Germany.

Taking the children's ages as given in this document, one can determine that the children as follows made the journey across the Atlantic with their parents:  William 13, born 1844; Aloysius (Louis) 8, born in 1848; Elizabeth 6, born in 1851; Mary 4, born 1852; and Herman 1 1/2, born in 1855.  The family of seven sailed from Bremen in the latter part of April 1857.

Although steam navigation had been introduced on the Atlantic by this time, poor immigrants always came by sailing ship, for a few dollars per head, in conditions which were certainly miserable if not abominable.

Emigrants paid a rate based on a twenty dollar fare and about 80 cubic feet of space per steerage passenger.  The ships carrying emigrants provided nothing for these passengers but a certain amount of space, water, and a small amount of bread and potatoes; the emigrants had to supply all other provisions and had to cook their own food, utilizing facilities located on the upper deck ( and not available to them in bad weather)...

These emigrants - men, women, and children - were often crowded outrageously in any between-deck space that could be made available below the weather deck.  Conditions, at times, can be better imagined than described, for there were no air ports or ventilation in the living spaces and no cooking or sanitary facilities below deck.  In bad weather - frequent in a westbound Atlantic crossing - the hatches had to be battened down, and we are told: Men, women and children screamed all night in terror'.  The emigrants, referred to by contemporaries as dirty and ignorant, lived on board the packets under conditions but little better than those prevailing in the better class slave ships.  We are told:  'It was not compulsory for emigrants to carry a doctor, although sometimes a physician was given a free passage in return for looking after the health of those on board; ship fever, smallpox, and other contagious diseases were common, and it is a wonder that many survived the voyage.  Rations were served out once a week in accordance with the allowance instituted by the British government - just enough to keep starvation away.  It was estimated that it cost twenty cents a day to feed each emigrant, and the steerage passage rates were about twenty dollars per person.  The emigrants - whether they supplied their own food or not  - had to cook or prepare it themselves, and fires for cooking or heating water permitted only above deck on stone surfaces prepared for that purpose.  Heavy weather meant not only no needed fresh air but also no hot water or cooked food, no sanitation, and the accumulation of filth, with the breeding of disease, below deck.  Out of 6,318 passengers carried on sixteen sailing packets and regular traders arriving in New York during a period of forty-three days, 330 passengers or 5 1/4 percent died in transit.

Thus it probably was for the Woerdehoff's.  They sailed from Bremerhaven on the sailing packet Ernestine bound for New Orleans, arrived there on June 17, 1857.  There were 309 passengers aboard the Ernestine, including Conrad Margaretha, and their five children.

In the passenger list, it was noted that the ultimate destination of the Woerdehoff's was St. Louis.  However, after landing in New Orleans, they traveled up the Mississippi river to Dubuque, Iowa, most likely by steamboat, and thence by ox-drawn wagon to the Dyersville - New Vienna area where German immigrants had been settled since the 1840's on new farms on the prairie frontier.

On July 13, 1857, Conrad signed an affidavit before the Clerk of the District Court at Delhi, then the county seat of Delaware County ( adjacent to Dubuque County), to the effect that it was his intention bona fide to become a citizen of the United States and "to renounce forever all allegiance and fidelity to the King of Prussia, of whom he is at present a subject".  The oath was a prerequisite for buying land from the government.  The document spells his name "Konrad Verdehoff"; he signed it, in German Gothic script, "Conrad Woerdehoff".  The oath attested to by the clerk of the court, may have served as his "first papers" for naturalization.  We have not searched out the record of his citizenship.

Conrad promptly, possibly on the same day, bought forty acres of virgin land from the government in section 9 of Bremen Township, Delaware County; northwest of Dyersville Iowa.  The government was selling farm land for homesteads for $1.50 an acre.

With the help of neighbors, Conrad built a log house and planted his first crops.  Parts of this area were forest land, not prairie.  The first settlers thought that only forest land was very fertile, so at great labor, they cleared the wooded land for their first fields.

Conrad enlarged his holdings, eventually to 120 acres - even then less than the 160 acres, a section of land, which became the standard family -size farm.  We (the Rauch's) located this farm in August, 1970; a two story house, sizable and presentable after more than a hundred years, but small even so for a family of twelve; the stone foundations of the original barn now support a newer barn - the original one we were told, had been destroyed in a wind storm.

Conrad and Margaretha had five more children, born on this farm:  Margaret (Mrs. Peter Wolterman), born 1859; Anton (married Elizabeth Berfeld), born 1860;  Bernadine ( Mrs. Anton Sumpmann), born 1860 - Anton and Bernadine were twins; Catherine (Mrs. Geroge Wolterman), born in 1863; and Henry (married Catherine Adams), born 1866.

Conrad died of pneumonia on May 1, 1870 at the age of sixty.  He was buried in Dyersville, in the cemetery at St. Francis Xavier Church.

Margaretha was a widow at forty-nine with nine children at home and a mortgage on a 120 acre farm.  She raised the children and she managed the farm, and paid off the mortgage.  Anton took over the ownership of the homestead sometime before Margaretha's death.  She died on March 7, 1893 at the age of seventy-two, and was buried, not in Dyersville, where Conrad was buried in 1870, but in Petersburg.  Her tombstone has a German inscription:   Heir ruht / Mar. Woerdehoff / geb. 2 Okt.1821 / gest. 7 Mar. 1893 R.I.P.

It is interesting to note that the Woerdehoff homestead farm remained in the family for three generations, a span of seventy-eight years, until 1935; Conrad and Margaretha, from 1857-1890; Anton and Elizabeth from 1890-1913; finally Ben Woerdehoff, Anton's eldest son, and his wife Henriette Klosterman from 1913-1935.  A total of twenty-two Woerdehoff's were born and or raise on that 120 acre farm.  The grand total of decedents of Conrad and Margaretha must number in the thousands.

This picture I have  is the sailing packet the Ernestine which the Conrad and Margaretha  with their first five children, sailed to America on. The ship was built in New York in 1834 and originally named the Columbus - sold to a German ( Bremen ) firm in 1847 and renamed the Ernestine.

 

Research by the Rauch family sent by Susanne Carpenter <Sus713@aol.com>

Conrad Woerdehoff (1800-1870) and his wife Margaretha Wubecke (1821-1893) with their children, William, Aloysius (Louis), Elizabeth, Mary and Herman sailed from Bremen, Germany in April, 1857 and landed in New York on June 5. They journeyed to the Dyersville-New Vienna area where German immigrants had been settled on new farms since the 1840's. Here they were the parents of: Margaret, Bernadine and Anton (twins), Catherine and Henry. Six of their children settled in the Breda area.

Louis married Philomenia Nurre at Petersburg, Iowa, July 1, 1873, and they moved to a farm northwest of Breda (now the home of Mrs. Zola Damm). They were the parents of eight children: Conrad, Elizabeth (Mrs. Peter Wolterman), Ben, Herman, Louis, Mary Anna (Mrs. Clem Schulte), Mathilda and Louise (Mrs. John Schoo). All are now deceased except Mrs. Louise (Lou) Schoo, who lives in Breda.

The daughters who came to Breda were: Mary, who married Anton Polking in 1875, Elizabeth, who married Jacob Tiefenthaler in 1877, Catherine, who married George Wolterman in 1883, and Margaret who married Peter Wolterman in 1887. They all farmed in the area.

Herman Woerdehoff married Rose Menkel, who was a country school teacher, in April 1880. He bought eighty acres of virgin land in Sac County, built a two room house, and planted his first crops before bringing his bride to their home on the prairie. They were the parents of: Elizabeth (Rauch), Margaret (Sr Vitalis O.S.F.), John, Herman, Joseph, Rose (Sr Vita O.S.F.), Gerhardt, Albert, Charles, Frank, Raymond, Leonard and Norma (Monser).

Here is a letter that Anita Henning received and got translated (posted with permission of the author)

Here is the English translation:

Dear Mrs. Henning!
My name is Hans Müntefering, and I live in Rosenheim in upper Bavaria [upper here means in the mountains in the south of the state]. Through coincidence I was on the internet and came across the Woerdehoff [family] in America. Since I've been busy for a short time on genealogical research of my name, and I found out that there is also a Wördehoff, I would like to report that to you.

My great grandfather Joseph Müntefering married on 13 July 1841 a Theresia Wördehoff from Steinhausen near Büren very near to Hegensdorf. The grandfather of Theresia Wördehoff was called Johann Antonius Thomas Wördehoff, and he was born 1 October 1776 in Weiberg and married on 3 March 1808 an Anna Maria Hesse from Steinhausen. The great grandfather of Theresia Wödehoff was named Antonius Wördehoff.

[An addendum sent with the publishing approval letter:
I think that I made a mistake with the Wördehoffs. For on 13 July 1841, my great-grandfather Joseph Müntefering married a Theresia Wördehoff.  The father of Theresia Wördehoff was Johann Antonius Thomas Wördehoff from Weiberg in Steinhausen by Hegensdorf.  His father was Antonius Wördehoff.]

Unfortunately I don't have the birth, marriage, and death dates for him. In case you want further written information of the Münteferings and Wödehoffs, I can send you that via normal mail. Please send me your postal address. My address:
Hans Müntefering
Finsterwalderstr.36

WERNIMONT

John Wernimont was born February 6, 1833. He came to America from Hobcheid, Luxembourg, as a young man. Family tradition relates that he reached Chicago, ran out of money, and was unable to find a job because he had no trade. So he outfitted himself with a trowel and mortar, splashed white pants, and became a mason. He made his way to Dubuque and lived there for some time.

On May 28, 1872 he took out a contract with Iowa Railroad Land Company for 160 acres of land now owned by Albert Wernimont. The land was purchased on May 1, 1875. He was married to Anna Peters and their children were: Nicholas, Mary, William G., Wendelin, Theodore, Anna, and John Anthony.

William G. Wernimont married Catherine Waltz. They were the parents of fourteen children: John, George, Anton, Helen, Ben, Christine, Rose, Joe, Teresa, Albert, Josephine, Mary, Barbara, and Ray. William Wernimont served as a county supervisor from 1925 to 1928.
