Hi There!
Ran across your homepage on the internet as I was looking for Weiterman 
relatives.  Emma Weitermann Richter is related to my husband.  We have 
researched the Weitermann family and have made contact with relatives in 
Germany, who have shared their research back to the 1600's.
For a start, Emma's mother's name was Philomena/Phillipine Jost Weitermann.  
She came from the Rhine region of Prussia.  Her parent's names were Charles & 
Elizabeth Jost.  Philomena came to the US through New Orleans.
The Weitermann's are from Hardemansgruen, Germany--near Lobenstein.  The family 
resided there for hundreds of years.
Will be happy to share research with you!

"Emma Maria Catherina, the legitimate daughter of Johann Friedrich Weitermann and his wife Philippine, 
born Jost, was baptized by M.H. Guehl on July 16, 1865 in the Town of Centerville, Wisc.  She was born 
June 3, 1860 in the Town of Two Rivers, Wisc.  Her Godparents are Friedrich M. Pauleer and 
Mrs. Chr. Borgwardt, represented Frau C. Kahlenberg and Adam Treise."

Children of John Weitermann and Philippine Jost:

Augustina Weitermann born Apr. 29, 1854 in  Two Rivers
Charles Jacob Weitermann born Feb. 9, 1856 In Two Rivers
Caroline Anna Margareth Weitermann born Aug. 8, 1858 in Two Rivers
Emma Maria Catherine Weitermann born June 3, 1860 in Two Rivers
John Peter Weitermann born Aug. 9, 1864 in Two Rivers
Ernest Fredrich Weitermann born Mar. 13, 1866 in Centerville (Cleveland, WI)
Henrietta Eva Margaretha Weitermann born Oct. 17, 1867 in Centerville (died Jan. 19, 1869 in Centerville)
George Christian Weitermann born May 27, 1869 in Centerville

Philomena died at the time of George's birth.  A newspaper article has her giving birth while there was 
an Indian scare and everyone was running toward the water.  No doctor or midwife was available to assist 
in the birth.  She is buried in Cleveland, WI.    In 1879 John moved the family to Ahnapee (Algoma) WI.  
In 1986. John bought land in Valmy, Door County, WI and in 1891 his home burned.  He died in 1906 at his 
daughter, Caroline's home where he was living.  He is buried in the Valmy church cemetery near the road.

We have documents to back everything up.  Have John & Philomena's we marriage record, census records, 
church records, etc.  Am attaching a picture of Philomena/Phillipine/Phebe

Will send you the research from German relative, Hans Weitermann which applies to this family in Wisconsin.  
My husband, Bill, is a descendant of Charles Weiterman, brother of Emma Weiterman Richter.    J. Richter 
owned land next to Charles Weiterman on the 1899 ,1914 and 1937 on the Jacksonport platt maps.  They must 
have rented it out since they were in Escanaba.

We have a lot of information about the Weiterman family--makes a good story!  You'll enjoy reading it.  
This was a very good, hard-working family--one that you will be happy to add to your family tree!  Thank you 
for the pictures!

Very nice work on that site, btw - very professional.  I admire your painstaking work--I can't imagine how many hours
it took you to compile all the data and pics...
I recall Mrs. Sprague ALWAYS wore dresses--usually all one piece (below the knee, of course) with a flower pattern of some kind, and she usually embellished them with a nice pin or a scarf.
She wore makeup and lipstick (I always remember those things), as well as nail
polish, and those thick clunky shoes (kind of like pumps, but with more SUBSTANCE)--in other words, her style didn't change much from that which she had adopted as a younger woman in that picture.
She was ALWAYS a lady - something I can't seem to manage, what with my potty mouth:(
Anyway--one moment in particular I also remember:
It was Halloween, and each child was asked to draw a "Halloween" picture.  All pictures were displayed in the hallway, and the teachers got to vote on what picture was the best, and that student would win a little prize.
I drew one of a haunted castle, a witch flying past the moon, gravestones, Dracula, Frankenstein, etc.
I remember being very excited, waiting to see whose picture would be chosen--and doubly so when I noticed that my picture was missing from the display after awhile.  Needless to say, I WON. 
I think the prize was a gift certificate to McDonald's or something-but the important part was how the teachers made me feel about winning.  Mrs. Sprague was especially nice, and told me she was "proud" of me.
She really helped alot of kids, Scott.
Have a great day!

Only muuch younger, and without the glasses.  I'm sure she was a good 20 years older when I had her as I teacher (yep-attending Webster School for 3rd grade), but only briefly-
here's another cool interesting "recovered" childhood memory: There was a bumper crop of kids that year, so they hired another new young teacher (whose name STILL escapes me), and after about a week, I transferred into her class...which was held in the LIBRARY, because there wasn't any room anyplace else.
Mrs. Sprague WAS very kind and very nice, however, and we all had a very nice time...until my parents bought the house on North 19th street, and I had to transfer to the ever-eerie-and-now-plowed-over-and-rebuilt WEBSTER school.
Thank you all for playing:)

Hi Andrea,
Thanks for the note,
I do not know of any living Wietermann relatives.
I've enclosed a pic a George, and Lizzy Wietermann dated 1936, they are
from the Manitowac, Wisconson area.  The girl is their granddaughter LaVerne,
I don't know her last name.
Brother and sister, George and Ema Wietermann (Richter) emigrated to the USA
from Germany in the late 1800's, I don't know exactly when.
Could you tell me the correct pronunciation of Wietermann?
Is it a common name in Germay?
Do you know what the name means or where it's origins are?
Good luck in your future research!

Subject: Re: Richter/Bloom

    Great thought, but I already tried that.  I accidentally found the Ellis Island info, which did not include Charles.  Charles name was Charles Gustav Richter, and later he went by Charles George Richter, and was familiarly known as Charlie.  Thank you for your response, I appreciate it.
    If you are interested, here is some additional information.
    We understand that he crossed when he was young, about 5 or 6 years old.  The passenger lists do not list the names of children of that age.  I do not know his fathers name, nor his mother's or wife's names, or his uncles names.  Charles was born in Berlin, approx 1841-2, if our information is correct.  Different information was given at different times.  We know he passed away in 1917, because there is a record of his death.  Based on the information provided by family at that time, and based on census information that he personally gave.  Franz and Ernest were supposedly born in Iowa, in 1873 and 1874, respectively, as I mentioned before.  On either a birth certificate or marriage license, the place of birth for Franz was listed as Wisc for Wisconsin, all other records show Iowa.  Iowa was split into Iowa and Wisconsin within twenty years previous to his birth, or there was some other close association between Iowa and whatever Wisconsin was twenty years prior to the birth.  Charles father ran a store, and probably owned land.  They came to California, where Elisabeth was born in 1875, and Stella(Estella) some time after that, maybe a half dozen years.  Ernest was a mason, and in the Commandry in Pomona, and was fairly well to do.  Ernest owned several two story buildings, a large house, and at least one orange grove.
    We know that Charles' father had money, and that he was from Berlin, and supposedly Charles' fathers family rejected Charles' mother, supposedly from Hamburg.  This suggested that the family was proud of whatever their heritage or background was, and rejected the wife of Charles's father simply because she was from the supposedly low class town/city of Hamburg, or so the family story was related to me when I was a teenager, I am in my late forties now.
    Once again, thanks.
Ernest Richter

It's possible that they were brothers/cousins etc, but I don't have any supporting
documentation.  If you haven't already, try the Ellis Island search below:

    If they crossed at the same time, your ancestor could have been a brother.  In my family, the name Ernest flows!
    If you find anything, please let me know, or post it on the genealogy boards.

Hi Ernest,
  Thanks for the family update.  I cannot make a family
connection - I don't have much info other than what is
on the WEB site. 
It is my understanding (facts not confirmed) that
John Richter (1854-1941) came to the US from Germany.
I don't know exactly when or from where, but I am assuming it
was before 1881.  He had 2 sons, Ernest and Charles (Carl) and one
daughter Adele.
I agree, there are many similiarities.
Good luck in your research and thanks for the email!

    This Richter family is different than my family, but there are some interesting similiarities.  I am Ernest Harold Richter, and I am named after my cousin Ernest Richter, who was named after his father, also Ernest Richter.  This eldest Ernest Richter was married to a Mildred, and their son Ernest Richter is my cousin Ernest Richter.  This eldest Ernest Richter passed away approx 1937, and my grandfather Franz Richter passed away in 1945.  My grandfather Franz Richter and the eldest Ernest Richter were two of four children of a Charles Richter, who passed away approx 1917.  Charles Richter had four children, Franz, Ernest, Elisabeth, and Stella(or Estelle).  Franz Richter and his brother Ernest Richter were born in Iowa in 1873, and 1874, respectively.  Charles was born in Berlin, approx 1841-2.  Charles crossed the Atlantic with his father, possibly his mother, and possibly one or two uncles approx 1848. 
    Does any of this family match with the Richter family on your web site, and if not, do you know of anything?  I have contacted some places in Iowa, and have visited the genealogical websites.  So far, I have turned up empty.

Manitowoc County, WIGenWeb Combined Query/Surname Page

WEITERMANN - Hello, my GG grandmother was born in Centerville 
Wisconsin. I've been told her parents died when she was young. 
They were John and Wilhelmina Weitermann. She had to raise the 
family. Do you have a listing of when and where they are buried? 
Birth and death dates would be appreciated. Any children would be 
helpful also. Lory Brasel
