Notes:

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

Christian and Matilda's seventh child was Amelia Ella Wintermantel (1877 Geneva twsp, Franklin Co, IA – 1950 Longview, WA) married another one of the church men from Canby, Theodore Robert Hornschuh called Theo. According to the census Theo was a clergyman in Tacoma WA in 1910, a dairyman in Tillamook County, Oregon in 1920 and 1930, and a Presbyterian minister in Portland in 1940. Perhaps people didn't pay their ministers enough for them to be full-time all-the-time pastors. Remember when Christian was the first person buried in the Canby cemetery because the good German Evangelicals did not want to be buried next to Presbyterians? My how time changes us all!

Amelia and Theo had five children. So far as I know, none of them died in horrible accidents, although their fourth child, Lois Hope Hornschuch, died at age 18. I don't know why.

A great granddaughter of Amelia, L. Brown, sent me this description of Amelia, quoting her mother, Amelia's granddaughter:

“Amelia was very quiet and was always working hard, tending the family, feeding road crews, and being a minister's wife. She also said, though, that her grandmother was very witty and had a wonderful sense of humor."

  16. 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.]
