Matilda Caroline Wintermantel:

Notes:

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

Christian and Matilda's second child was Matilda Caroline Wintermantel (1868 Franklin, WI-1949 Spokane, WA), called Tillie. The 1940 census shows us that Tillie only stayed in school through 6th grade. She married Heinrich C. Weber in Canby in 1892. Henry, as he was called, was an Evangelical pastor. Most of his adult life he earrned a living as a fruit farmer near Yakima. He was one of the founders of the Canby church. Tillie and Henry had six children. One died at birth. Wayne Wardle, Tillie's nephew wrote to me about two other sons:

"(Tilly and Henry) had 2 sons, Walter and Fred, that drowned in the Yakima River. "

But not at the same time. Walter was 60, old enough that he left Tillie five granchildren. Fred was only 26. Here is an article about Fred's drowning from Yakima Daily Republic, Part 1, p. 3, Wednesday, July 17, 1918:

"HEROIC EFFORT TO SAVE CHUM'S LIFE - Fred Weber drowns while trying to ford Naches River at Horseshoe Bend - Though his companion, Samuel Shuman, made heroic efforts to save his life Fred Weber was drowned late yesterday afternoon while attempting to ford the Yakima River at Horseshoe Bend.
When the water at Clear creek, where they were fishing, became muddy early in the afternoon, the two young men started for Yakima in their car. At Horseshoe Bend they saw clear water and decided to try their luck. Weber, lured by a deep hole on the opposite side of the river, suggested fording the stream. Shuman at first objected, but finally expressed his willingness to go. When he was across he saw Weber floating down the stream a distance below him.
HOW IT HAPPENED
"Weber was carried under the water for about 100 feet," says Mrs. George Longmire who was called to the scene of the accident by Mr. and Mrs. H. J. Pontius, the only eye-witnesses."Shuman went after him as fast as he could. Part of the time he went under water. Later he said that he could not have done it at any other time and wondered how he was able to do it at all.
"When he reached the body, wedged in between rocks, he was still 20 feet from the shore. He pulled Weber to the surface, though the current there is strong, and picked him up in his arms as he started to walk the remaining distance. We who watched did not think he could get across at all. The stream is so swift that it is not easy at any time. Hampered by the weight of the body, Shuman staggered slowly along, at times appearing to stand still for several minutes while gathering his strength for another step.
Funeral Services Tomorrow
"First aid measures were tried the minute he reached the shore. B. J. Coe, who had been fishing, and saw Shuman on the rocks, swam across to help; but it was too late. Weber's body had a bad bruise between the eyes and also a bruise over the heart, so it may be that he did not die from drowning at all. He may have slipped as a result of a sudden attack of heart trouble, which he had.
After the unavailing efforts to resuscitate his comrade, Shuman went to Yakima and back to look after affairs. H. A. Shaw, acting coroner, brought the body to Yakima last night. Funeral services will be held tomorrow at the Evangelical Nob Hill Church at one o'clock.
Fred Weber, 26 years old, is the son of Mr. and Mrs. H. C. Weber of Nob Hill. He and Shuman are neighbors and were chums during their years at the Yakima high school, of which both are graduates. George Longmire, Mr. Pontius, Shuman, and Coe carried the body to the Fechter cabin."

In 1910 Tillie and Henry were fruit farming in Yakima County, Washington. By 1920 they were settled on their place at West Summitview, Yakima County, WA, where they remained the rest of their lives.
