Herman Otto Wintermantel:

Notes:

per Wayne Wardle letter 3Jun2003
"Emma and Herman lived on a small farm in the Portland area."

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

Christian and Matilda's sixth child was Herman Otto Wintermantel (1874 Geneva Township, Franklin Co, IA – 1856 Portland, Multnomah, OR) married Emma Lena Wenger. Wayne Wardle told me, “Emma and Herman lived on a small farm in the Portland area." But in the 1920 census, Herman was working as a house carpenter in Yakima, Washington, and in the 1930 census, working as a carpenter in a box factory in Tillamook County, Oregon. That is the county his sister, Amelia, was living in. Perhaps they moved to the farm when Herman retired. Herman and Emma had three children: Mabel, Pearl and Lloyd. Mabel had a great tragedy in her life when her husband, Marvin Gholson and six year old daughter Audrey drowned in a boating accident on the Columbia River. Here is an article I found about it; Idaho Falls-Post Register, Monday Aug. 20, 1934:

FIVE DROWN WHEN BOAT OVERTURNS

Four Other Members of the Portland Party are Saved From River

Portland, Ore. Aug. 20 (AP) Surviving members of three Portland families today mourned five relatives drowned on a Sunday afternoon boating party on the Columbia River. One family lost mother and son; another mourned a father and daughter; and a third lost a son.
The five were drowned when a narrow 15-foot outboard motor boat turned suddenly and capsized. Mrs. O. G. McCann and her son Delbert, were killed. Mr. McCann and his daughter Orva, were saved. Police still were dragging the river for the bodies of Marvin Gholson, 37, and his six year old daughter, Audrey. Mrs. Gholson and her daughter, Jean, 7, stayed afloat with an automobile inner tube until they were pulled to shore. Billy Nelson, a youth, clung to the overturned boat for a time, but sank before rescuers could reach him.
C.G. Johnson, a witness to the accident; Arthur Reeves, Robert Blair and Jack Buckner, caddies from a nearby golf course, and a man known only as "Carl" rescued the four persons and also pulled out three bodies. Police resuscitation equipment proved ineffective.

Herman and Emma's other two children were Pearl and Lloyd. Herman died on his birthday, in Portland at the age of 82.

  6. Christian Wintermantel Pension Papers, p. 37.

    the spring of 1872...we moved to near Ackley, Hardin Co., Iowa. We were there twelve years.

    [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.]

    I don't know if this will be helpful at all, but Herman's wife, Emma
    Wenger, was born in Monroe, Green Co., WI. Her parents, Jacob and Rosina
    (Dick) Wenger, came to the U.S. in about 1860 from Canton Berne in
    Switzerland.
    Thanks again, and if you ever find out what became of Herman and Emma,
    please let me know. I seem to remember hearing that after they left
    Oregon they went to Washington state for a while, but I have been unable
    to find them there in the little research I have done on that lead. Good
    luck.
