Notes:

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

Christian and Matilda's fifth child was Hedwig A. Wintermantel (1873 Geneva twsp, Franklin Co, IA – 1957 Chehalis, WA), called Hettie, married John Ehret, a minister involved with the Canby church. Throughout his life he worked as either a clergyman or a farmer, probably both at the same time. The 1930 census shows him as a fruit farmer near Yakima, Washington. In the 1940 Census he and Hettie are living in West Summit View, Yakima County, Washington, the same municipality as Hettie's sister Tillie. In 1940, John lists his occupation as retired minister. They had three children Arthur William Ehret was a teacher and administrator in Centralia, Washington and was a very active community member. Their second child, Walter W. Ehret died in an automobile accident at the age of 23. Are you counting how many of Christian's grandchildren and great grandchildren died in accidents? Their daughter, Helen married a railroad worker and was living and raising her family in Spokane in 1940.

  12. Christian Wintermantel Pension Papers, p. 37.

    moved to Wintersett,Madison Co, Iowa fall of 1868; moved to Ackley, Hardin Co, Iowa spring 1872; moved to Jefferson, OR fall of 1883

    [I believe Matilda was confused about what county she lived in. They lived near Ackley, Iowa. Ackley actually straddles two counties, Franklin and Hardin. According to the 1880 census the family lived in Geneva township of Franklin County, Iowa. Matilda testifies they moved from the Winterset home in 1872 and lived in the next place for 12 years so that next place must have been Geneva township, Franklin County, Iowa.]
