Notes:

From "The Wintermantel Story - Beginnings" by Dianne Z. Stevens - 2013

John Jacob and Salome Walter Wintermantel's second child was John Jacob Wintermantel (b. 1825 Ihringen, Baden – 1894 Iowa). John Jacob and his brother, George Frederich, had come to America before their parents and family in 1846 or 1847. When John Jacob (1799) and Salome arrived with their six children in Sauk County one of their first thoughts was to find the two older brothers and unite the family.

Brother George wrote the following about his brother John Jacob:

"Brother John Jacob was found by Brother William in Memphis in 1860 and they took the train to Wisconsin. He lived for several years with the parents. In 1865 he went to Iowa, bought land, married, sold the land again, moved farther west, bought other land at Winterset, Madison County, Iowa, where he now lives. He is a widower, but lives in well-to-do circumstances."

John Jacob (1825) married Caroline Schoepflin. She brought 5 children with her to the marriage. Caroline and John Jacob had two more children. When the youngest was only 2 Caroline died. Then John Jacob married Eliza Jacquiss and had Katherine Ethel Wintermantel who married Harry Woodford. Kate and Harry had eight children including twins. In 1919 during the great flu epidemic, Harry, just back from WWI, and the twins, Elmer and Eleanor, who were then 2 1/2, all died.

    Wintermantle Cemetery

    The Wintermantle cemetery is located 6 1/2 miles west of Winterset on the West Star road. It is strictly a private cemetery, and the earliest graves are not marked, but the earliest stone marked is dated 1871. It is quite small in size, only about one-half an acre. There are only five marked graves as follows:

    John J. Wintermantle 1825-1894

    Caroline, his wife, 1834-1871

    Harriet, wife of D. Barber, died October 3, 1873, aged 24 years.

    Charles Smith, died February 6, 1894 aged 34 years, 6 months, 17 days.

    Prudence, wife of W. A.Taylor died August 6, 1873, aged 53 YEARS, 9 months, 6 days. Its inscription below the dates is as follows:

    "Dearest mother, rest in quiet sleep
    While friends in sorrow oe'r thee weep"

    This cemetery is on virgin prairie sod: in the late summer is beautiful with native scariesa and other low, grassy flowers that are seldom seen. Nearest surviving relative is Mrs. Mary Lotz of Winterset.
