Notes:

from "The Christian Wintermantel Story" by Dianne Z. Stevens - 2013

Christian and Matilda's first child was Rosina Magdalena Wintermantel (1866 Franklin, WI – 1955 Okanogan, WA), called Rose. She married Matthew Hoover (1861 Missouri – 1952 Bridgeport, Washington). Rose and her husband farmed wheat land in North Central Washington. Later they lived at Ocean City, WA, and rented tourist cabins. They retired at Okanongan, WA. They had two daughters, Greta and Marie, both of whom graduated from college. Marie taught school for 47 years. She never had children. Her husband, Prater Hilliard Smith, grew orchards in Washington state. Greta also taught school. She married Harold F. Greely. They lived in Okanogan, Washington where Harold ran a Richfield Service Station for many years. They had only one child, a son, Donald Hoover Greely who became an Army Colonel, receiving many honors for his service in WWII, Korea and Viet Nam. Colonel Greely's only son, Donald Hoover Greely Jr., and daughter-in-law died in a car accident in 1973. Colonel Greely also had a daughter by a second marriage.
Another person, Ora Greely, is related to this family in some way. Ora's obituary says that Greta and Marie are her sisters. Ora also lived in Okanogan. She was born in 1883, ten years before Matt married Rose, so perhaps she was a child from a former marriage of Matt Hoover.
