Salome Wintermantle:

Notes:

From "The Wintermantel Story - Beginnings" by Dianne Z. Stevens - 2013

John Jacob and Salome Walter Wintermantel's first child was Salome Wintermantel (b. 1823 Ihringen, Baden – 1904 Sauk City, Wisconsin). Salome married Mathias Schmiedlin (b.1820 Ihringen – d. 1903 Sauk City, Wisconsin). They were married and had at least five children in Ihringen before they followed the rest of the Wintermantel family to Sauk County. Here is what brother George wrote about Salome and Matthias in his letter to Germany in 1875:

"M. Schmidlins live close by our parents. He had father's farm in rent for several years, but then they bought out an Irishman. The two older daughters are married. Several children were born in America, and several have died. The parents and the rest of the children are healthy and well."

They had about nine chidren, four of whom survived to adulthood. One, their daughter Salome Schmiedlin and her husband, Emmanuel Kirschner, had nine children also. Five of them died before the age of eight. During a two month period during the winter of 1880 three of their little boys died; Franz Kirschner, age 7, Herman Kirschner 5, and John Heinrich Kirschner, 3. Most likely a contagious disease like diphtheria swept through the community. We don't know for sure. Sad though this was there is also good news for Salome and Matt. Of their grandchildren who lived, many lived into their 80's and 90's, at least nine. And one granddaughter, Sara, lived to be 102. She was the daughter of Mary Magdalena Weber, Salome and Matt's first child. Sara Weber married Clint O. Belzer. Both Sarah and Clint lived past the 100 mark, Sara to 102, Clint to 103. They were married almost 80 years!
