     According to family tradition, Herman emigrated to the USA as part of an extended family group, which included his brother,Heinrich, and Heinrich's wife, Friederieke (Nolte) Rabius. Accompanying the Rabius family was Friederieke's father, Frederick Nolte; her brother, Carl Nolte; and the family of her other brother, Wilhelm Nolte (Wilhelm; wife, Maria; and their two oldest children, Heinrich Frederick and Friedericke).
     According to descendants, Heinrich and Friederieke (Nolte) Rabius emigrated from England about 1867 or 1868. Their only child, Gustav, was born at Louisville, Kentucky in May 1868 and by 1869 the family had arrived in Missouri, settling in Washington Township, Lafayette County, with addresses in Higginsville and Mayview, Missouri.
     It is not known whether all of this extended family stopped in Louisville, or if some members traveled directly to Missouri.

     The following biographical sketch appeared in A History of Moniteau County, Missouri, written by J. E. Ford and published in 1936.

          Rev. J. C. Bierbaum

     J. C. Bierbaum, pastor of the California Evangelical Church, is a native of Treloar, Missouri, born July 11, 1891. His father was A. J. H. Bierbaum, born in Marthasville, Missouri, who died in 1914. Mr. Bierbaum is the youngest of a family of seven children, five boys and two girls. All of the boys became preachers. His mother, born at Cecil, Wisconsin now eighty-two years old, lives at Aurora, Illinois.
     Mr. Bierbaum was married April 30, 1919, to Miss Marie Hoflander, daughter of John George and Elizabeth Hoflander of Billingsville, Cooper County. They have one child, Dorothy, five years old.
     He graduated at Elmhurst College, Elmhurst, Illinois, and at Eden Theological Seminary at Webster Groves, Mo. His first charge was at Berlin, Wisconsin, where he remained two years. He was then for ten years at Lexington, Missouri, and is now in his twelfth year with the California Evangelical Church. He has been president and moderator of the West Missouri District of the Evangelical Church for the past eight consecutive years.
     The unique record of three pastors, of which Mr. Bierbaum is the last, in building the present organization of the California Evangelical church is discussed in Chapter X. This church has the largest average attendance at church and Sunday School of any church in the county. In effective working organization, in attendance and in interest it will compare favorably with most of the stronger churches of large cities.

The historical sketch of Rev. Bierbaum's charge mentioned above, appeared in Chapter 10, on page 257:

     CALIFORNIA - This church, organized in 1866, is one of the outstanding churches of the county. Fifty-five per cent of its membership is from rural territory adjacent to California. The present building was erected in 1895 and enlarged and remodeled in 1930-31. During 78 years of its existence the church has had but three pastors, Rev. F. A. Umbeck, who served 47 years, his son, Rev. F. P. Umbeck, eleven years. The present pastor, Rev. J. C. Bierbaum, succeeded the latter in 1925.
     The average Sunday School attendance is more than 300. The big modern building contains nine separate rooms for class meetings, a kitchen and large assembly room in addition to the main auditorium. All organizations subsidiary to the church are active parts of a powerful and efficiently conducted organization.

     The following is a transcription of an English language obituary kindly provided by Thomas Lee Scribner. This item was probably published in a Lafayette County, Missouri newspaper:

          Wm. Nolte Passes Away.
     Wm. Nolte, an old resident of this place, passed away at 12:30 p.m. Thursday, January 1, 1914, at the age of 77 years, three months and 29 days. He was born in Barver, in the Kingdom of Hannover, Germany, September 3, 1836 and came to America in 1870 and settled in this community in February 1871.
     He was married to Maria Feldmann May 3, 1865. Of this union were born nine children, of whom six are left to mourn the departure of parents. He also had 23 grandchildren. The sons are Fred and Otto of this place, and Lewis of Blackburn. The daughters are Mrs. F, W. Rechterman, Mrs. Henry Leffman and Miss Rose Nolte, all of this place. Those gone on before are Charlie, August and Mrs. T, R. Brock. His lifes companion died June 28, 1901.
     He was a good man, attending strictly to his own affairs, and every one spoke well of him. He had been a member of the Evangelical Church for 63 years, and served as Deacon of the Mayview Church four different terms of three years each, 12 years in all. Also Superintendent of the sunday School for some years.
     He bore his last illness patiently and only waited the call of his Lord and Master to come on and join the loved ones gone on before. The funeral was conducted Saturday morning, January 3rd, by Rev. Mr. Rieger of Higginsville, in German, assisted by Rev. T. L. Powell in English. It was one of the largest funerals ever held here, the Church could not hold all of those present. The German Choir sang some beautiful hymns and a Quartet, consisting of Mrs. C. W. Kincheloe, Miss Kate Bullard, E. S. Butt and B. B. Cassell, and Miss Lydia Belle Butt as organist also rendered some beautiful anthems. The body was buried in the Evangelical Cemetery east of Mayview.

     The following is a transcription of an German language obituary kindly provided by Thomas Lee Scribner. This item was probably published in a Lafayette County, Missouri newspaper:

          Wilhelm Nolte
     Am Neujahrstage ist Herr Wm. Nolte, einer der angesehensten und besten Bürger der Mayview Umgegend, vom Tod abgerufen worden. Er hatte die Verwandten in der Blackburn Gegend besucht, und da sich das Befinden des wackeren Mannes, das schon länger hatte zu wünschen übrig lassen, verschlimmerte, begab er sich nach Hause, eine Meile westlich von Mayview. Die Kräfte des Patienten schwanden rasch, und am Neujahrstage, eine halbe Stunde nach der Mittagszeit, schloß er die Augen zum letzten Schlummer. Das Leichenbegängniß [sic], an dem sich Verwandte, Freunde und Bekannte zahlreich betheiligten, fand am Samstag Nachmittag [sic] um halb elf Uhr vom Sterbehause aus statt. Der Trauergottesdienst wurde kurz nach elf Uhr in der evang. Zionskirche in Mayview abgehalten. Pastor Rieger von Higginsville hielt eine trostreiche Leichenpredigt über die Worte des 102. Psalms, 12 and 13. Ihm folgte Rev. Powell, Prediger der Baptistenkeriche [sic] in Mayview, welcher dem berstorbenen einen warmen Nachruf widmete. Der Gesang des Chors der Zionsgeeminde [sic] machte die Trauerfeier zu einer besonders eindrucksvollen. Auf dem Zions-Gottesacker fand der müde Erdenpilger die letzte Schlummerstätte. Möge er ruhen in Frieden.
     Wilhelm Nolte war geboren in Barver, Hannover, am 3. September 1836, erreichte also ein Alter von 77 Jahren, 3 Monaten und 29 Tagen. Um 3. Mai 1865 schloß er den Bund der Ehe mit Maria Feldman, welche am 28. Juni 1901 duch den Tod von der Seite des Lebensgefährten genommen wurde. Im September 1870 kam die Familie nach Amerika, nud [sic] in Februar 1871 ließ sie sich bei Mayview nieder. Die glückliche Ehe war mit neun Kindern gesegnet, von denen drei dem Vater in die Ewigkeit vorausgegangen sind, nämlich Frau T. R. Brock, Charles und August Nolte. Die überlebenden Kinder sind: Friedrich, Otto, Louis (zu Blackburn), Frau Wm. Rechtermann, Frau Heinrich Lefmann und Frl. Rosa Nolte. Ferner hinterläßt der Heimgegangene 23 Enkel, eine Schwester (in Deutschland,) [sic] sowie andere Verwandte, wie auch ein großer Kreis von Freunden dem verstorbenen deutschen Biedermann ein ehrendes Gedächtniß bewahrt. Seit seiner Kindheit war Herr Nolte Glied der evang. Kirche. Wie geachtet er gewesen und wie hoch seine Dienste geschätzt wurden, zeigt die Thatsache, daß er viermal mit einem dreijährigen Termin als Vorsteher der Zions-Gemeinde betraut wurde und Jahre lang Superintendent der Sonntagsschule war. Ehre seinem Andenken!
     Die trauernden Hinterbliebenen versichern wir unserer aufrichtigen Theilnahme.

     An English translation of the above obituary:

          Wilhelm Nolte
     On New Year's Day, Mr. Wm. Nolte, one of the most notable and best of citizens in the Mayview area, was called to his death. He had visited relatives in the Blackburn area and because of the deteriorating health of this brave man, which had for some time been less than desirable, he betook himself to his home, a mile west of Mayview. The vigor of the patient waned rapidly and on New Year's Day , a half hour after midday, he closed his eyes for his last slumber. The burial, attended by countless relatives, friends and acquaintances, took place on Saturday afternoon [sic] at 10:30 , starting from the deceased's home. The memorial service was held shortly after 11:00 in Zion Evangelical Church in Mayview. Pastor Rieger of Higginsville gave a fully consoling funeral sermon on the words of Psalm 102: 12-13. He was followed by Rev. Powell, preacher of the Baptist church in Mayview, who gave the deceased a warm eulogy. The singing of the Zion Church choir lent an impressive air to the funeral. The weary pilgrim of this earth found his final resting place in Zion's cemetery. May he rest in peace.
     Wilhelm Nolte was born in Barver, Hannover, on the 3rd of September 1836, reaching an age of 77 years, 3 months and 29 days. On the 3rd of May 1865, he contracted a covenant of marriage with Maria Feldman, who death stole away on the 28th of June 1901. The family came to America in September 1870 and in February 1871 took up residence in Mayview. The lucky marriage was blessed with nine children, three of whom preceded their father in Eternity, namely Mrs. T. R. Brock, Charles and August Nolte. The surviving children are: Friedrich, Otto, Louis (of Blackburn), Mrs. Wm. Rechtermann, Mrs. Heinrich Lefmann and Miss. Rosa Nolte. In addition, the deceased left behind 23 grandchildren, a sister (in Germany), as well as other relatives and a large circle of friends who preserve the memory of this honest German man with honor. Mr. Nolte was a member of the evangelical church from his childhood. How respected he was and how highly his service was treasured is demonstrated by the fact that four times he was entrusted with a three year term as head deacon of Zion Church and had served for years as Superintendent of the Sunday School. Praise be his memory!
     We extend our sincere sympathies to the grieving survivors.

In the Principality of Lippe until about 1870, it was customary for engaged couples to register their intended marriage with the nearest office of the Lower Court (German = Amt). This registration, or Eheprotokoll, typically recorded the couple's names and intended place of residence after marriage, the names of their parents, and most importantly, the dowry and any other financial arrangements connected with the marriage. By registering these details with the judicial court, the Eheprotokoll served as a marriage contract. In the 1870s, as license bureaus were established and civil marriages became more common, the use of Eheprotokoll began to died out.

Linwood (Nelson) Jungerman wrote this sketch of Emma's life:

     "Henrietta Emma was a twelve year old girl when her family moved to Saline County, Missouri. After her father's stroke they moved to Blackburn for a few years. In the winter months she furthered her education by staying in her brother Julius' home and attending school in Higginsville. While her brother, George, was attending Veterinary School in Kansas City, he brought home a friend -- one Walter Randall. The course, nor the courtship, was a very long one. Soon the young couple were starting life together in a small town in Nebraska (Genoa). Here they remained for over fifty years and made for themselves a place of honor and respect in the hearts of the community.
     "We are sure the first few years were very lonely ones for Emma as she had always been part of a large family. Added to the difference was terrain -- the dry heat of summer was hard to bear and the intensity and duration of the severity of storms of winter were often frightening. The death of her first-born was another disheartening factor.
     "In time, her brother Theodore, came to make his home there. Later her mother came, then Meta and her husband came to retire there. Much of the information about the early family ties of her father, Aunt Emma gave us in a letter written some time before her death." 
Jungermann, Henrietta Emma (I3518)

Linwood (Nelson) Jungerman wrote this sketch of Theodore:

     "Theodore was a very small boy when the family came to Saline County [Missouri]. In fact, he was only thirteen years old when his father was forced to retire.
     "One of his first financial ventures was to sell milk in the town of Blackburn [Missouri]. He had a novel form of delivery. He would drive the obliging cow down the street and milk the required amount at the customer's door. One of his first investments was $2.00 for a bicycle. He was with his parents when they were in the home of his brother Julius. But the necessity to become independent led him to go to Nebraska as a farm hand as he could get $35.00 a month there which was ten dollars more than he could get in Missouri.
     "He soon grew to love the prairie -- its rich soil, wonderfully clean air, and the kindly people of that state. He still remains there although none of the family are there at present.
     "It was from Nebraska that he joined the Army during World War I. He stayed in the army of occupation because he could speak German and returned there briefly the year of the fiftieth anniversary of that armistice.
     "Although he never had a family of his own, his interest in his nieces and nephews have made him almost a second father to them. He has also befriended and helped many boys in his neighborhood. We all hope Father Time deals lightly with him." 
Jungermann, Theodore August (I3520)

Linwood (Nelson) Jungerman wrote:

     "Julius is, we believe, the first of the immediate family of Christian Andrew's to come into the Lafayette-Saline County. He came in search of work and a future home some time during the 1890s. He arrived in the Higginsville [Missouri] area and found no shortage either of work or eligible young ladies among the largely German congregation of the Evangelical Church he attended. He found his bride and they were married in 1900. Their happiness was short-lived as she died within nine years of their marriage. It had also been saddened by the death of their oldest son, Earl. Julius re-married in 1912 and two children were born to this marriage."

Linwood (Nelson) Jungerman, in her history of the family, wrote this sketch of Christian and Katherine's life:

     "Christian Andrew and Katherine Wilhelimena first lived in St. Charles, MO, later farmed near there. It was on this farm that all the children were born and some grew to adulthood. This farm home was unusual then and still is today. It had been built before the Civil War, three stories high, of solid brick construction. Bricks were probably burned on the farm and labor was possibly slave. Rooms were spacious, ceilings were high, cool in summer, and warm in winter. It was to this home that Fred, Andreas' son born in 1861, came in need of a family home. He was only a child, but he felt that his room was more desirable than his presence in the home of his step-mother. Christian and Katherine welcomed him and there he remained for twenty years. In this way Christian could repay his brother Andreas for bringing him to the New World and providing a home for him. Through out life Katherine's motto was 'the house is always big enough if the heart is.'
     "Another incident that happened in this home had to do with the arrival one evening of [a] sick and weary veteran of the Confederate Army. He was given food and lodging and when he was better, he asked Christian A. if he had any type of light work he might do for his 'keep.' Christian had long talks with him, realized he had been seriously wounded, and also realized here was an educated Englishman. The upshot of the matter was he offered this man a room in the upper story of the house where he could operate a subscription school in exchange for teaching his children the proper use, pronunciation, reading and writing of English. They spoke German entirely in the home. How long this lasted we do not know but the teacher remained until his death. We are also sure that many a long winter evening was spent by the two old soldiers, on in blue, the other grey, refighting the campaigns of the war.
     "Life was very pleasant and comfortable in this farm home. They were near their church home and many of Christian Andrews family had come to St. Charles County as well as innumerable Wesseler family relations. As the children grew to man and womanhood Christian realized there was not work or room for all on so small a farm. He began to look westward. He found a purchaser for his land among the descendants of Andreas family. The fourth generation descendants live in this home today. The house has been re-modeled and is very comfortable and beautiful. On the east side of the house runs a road, Jungerman Road, on local maps.
     "In the spring of 1894 the family moved to Audrain County near Rush Hill, Mo. Christian Andrew was in search of a larger farm and better soil. Finding the soil of Audrain County not up to their expectations, they moved on to Saline County around the turn of the century. Christian suffered a stroke in 1907 and remained an invalid the rest of his life.
     "They moved to the town of Blackburn after his stroke. When the wife of Julius died, they moved to his home. After Julius re-married, they spent some time with their daughter, Anna, who lived near by. He died in 1917 while in the home of Julius. He is buried in the Mayview Cemetery as are a number of his descendants.
     "Christian's youngest son, Theodore, attended his father's funeral. He was then in training to go back to fight against the country Christian had left so long ago.
     "Christian Andrew has been portrayed to me as a very stern man - a strict disciplinarian. Life and the army had left its mark on him and he ruled his family of fun-loving children with a firm hand. His wife was rather prone to spoiling her children. She could never conceal her love for them. In her eyes they were perfect, so between the two they created a family of well-balanced children.
     "After her son, Theodore, returned from the army, he began farming in Nebraska. His mother made a home for him there as he never married. Her greatest pleasures in her later years were in planning the family reunions which they held in Nebraska around Thanksgiving."

     A history of Lafayette County Missouri published in 1910 stated: "Gustave H. Rabius was born in Louisville, Kentucky, May 31, 1868, the son of Henry and Frederica Rabius [i.e., Heinrich Rabius (1838-1904) and Friederieke Nolte (1842-1905)], who came to the United States from England in 1867, but were natives of Germany. One of his mother's grandfather's was a colonel in the English army, the other a surgeon in the same army, and both served in the French and English wars. His mother's maiden name was Nolte, derived from the Hessian nobility. His father [i.e., Heinrich Rabius] was a shoemaker and saddler as a young man, later a sugar refiner in England, but in Missouri a farmer. His parents came to Lexington, Missouri, in 1869, coming by boat."
     Family researchers have not yet been able to confirm that Frederick Nolte was born in England, or to explain why his birth might have taken place there instead of in Hannover, where the family seems to have its roots. Indeed, research from Germany indicates that Friedrich was from Barver, in the Kingdom of Hannover, and that his daughter, Dorothea Friederike Henriette Nolte, was born there in 1842.
     It is not clear why the author of the 1910 biographical sketch wrote that the Nolte surname "derived from the Hessian nobility."
     It is suspected that Frederick's father may have served in the Hanoverian army and that, because of the connection between the royal houses of Hannover and England, he was at one time stationed in England for military service. This fanciful explanation has not yet been tested by any research.

     A photo of Doss appeared in the Girardot, the yearbook of Central High School at Cape Girardeau. He was a member of the senior class with a major in mathematics. The quote associated with him was "He sticks by his friends."
     According to information on his World War II draft registration card, filed on 1 August 1928, Doss Robert Heath and his next of kin, Lucille Heath were residents of Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Doss, 18 years of age, was employed by Superior Electric Company. He was described as 5 foot, 10 inches tall; weighing 152 pounds; with brown eyes, brown hair, and a dark complexion.

     According to a 1915 biography, "George enlisted in Company C, Forty-fourth Missouri Volunteer Infantry, and with his comrades took part in all of the regiment's marches, campaigns and battles, seeing service in Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama."

     According to a biographical sketch published in 1888, after Julius Neumann finished attending the public schools in Henry County, Illinois "...he worked on the farm with his father until seventeen years old, and then started in business for himself, establishing a hardware store at Bishop Hill, which he carried on successfully for a period of three years. Next he embarked in the dry-goods trade at San Jose, Ill., and since that time has been in this business, having now an experience of twenty years."

     "Julius Neumann, Mayor of Wymore, and engaged in general merchandising, besides having other important interests in the city, and whose portrait is herewith presented, is one of its most prominent and influential business men. Besides his proprietorship in the Wymore Rolling Mills, he owns the Neumann Block, a beautiful residence on Newton street, and other valuable city property. He holds the warranty deed to a fine farm of 160 acres in Pawnee County, and a whole section in this State and Kansas."

     "Mr. Neumann came to this county [Gage County, Nebraska] in the spring of 1882, and that same year put up a fine brick block on Niagara avenue. In partnership with A. E. Winter he conducted a successful business until the spring of 1888, then, desiring a rest, sold out. Among the men most largely engaged in those enterprises which have furnished an impetus to the business interests of the town, the subject of this sketch has occupied no unimportant position. He has been a member of the School Board most of the time since coming here, and holds the office of President, both of the Building and Loan Association and the Board of Trade. Of the Methodist Episcopal Church he has been a generous contributing member for years, also holding the office of Trustee, and serving on the Building Committee and in other positions where he could do effective work."

     No doubt the successful business mentioned in this account was the Neumann & Winter Mercantile Store located at Wymore, Nebraska. It seems probable that the A. E. Winter identified as Julius's partner was Adolph Edward Winter, first cousin of Julius's wife, Amelia Christine Wellemeyer. Adolph, the son of Wilhelm and Maria Wilhelmine (Fiegenbaum) Winter, was born in Wapello Township, Louisa County, Iowa in 1857 and in 1884 at Wymore, Nebraska he married Katherine Elma Jaynes. Maria Wilhelmine (Fiegenbaum) Winter was a sister to Christine Elisabeth (Fiegenbaum) Wellemeyer, Amelia's mother.
     At some later date, Julius founded the Julius Neumann Company at Wymore, Nebraska. This is probably the "business establishment" mentioned in a biographical sketch published in 1918:

"March 19, 1882, he came to Wymore, Gage county, Nebraska. Here he built a fine brick block, on Niagara avenue, and here he has been engaged successfully in business since that time.

     According to one account, Robert and Frances were married at her parents' home by the Rev. John Crozier, of the Olney Presbyterian church.
     The following account was published in the Holt County Sentinel, of Oregon, Missouri, on Friday, 19 November 1915.

          Their Golden Wedding

          Mr. and Mrs. Robert Montgomery
          Celebrate Their Fiftieth
          Wedding Anniversary

     That marriage is not a failure is demonstrated beyond the least shadow of a doubt on such occasions as that of Sunday last, November 14, when Mr. and Mrs. Robert Montgomery, of this city, were accorded a most pleasant surprise on the 50th anniversary of their wedding at the home of their son, Mr. and Mrs. Hiram W. Montgomery; their only child.
     The celebration of the 50th anniversary of a wedding event is of more than ordinary occasion, and few couples live to celebrate such an event.
     The life of these two people has been beautifully blended, and have lived such a long series of years together in such Christian harmony, that it may well be said that such marriages are ordained by the Master. Their lives together in our midst for the past 44 years has been an inspiration for all that was good, pure, and ideal in life. With the exception of six years, their entire married life has been spent among us, and they surely enjoy the esteem and love of all our people. They have gone hand in hand and heart with heart; the ups and down of life together so beautifully, and they doubtless have had them. In the religious, literary, and social circles they have been conspicuous figures, and have done their part toward the keeping of our city and community morally clean. Mrs. Montgomery in her younger days was an active and conspicuous member of the Women's Union, of this city.
     Their joint services to the Master's cause has been of many years standing of the Presbyterian church and Sunday school, and they have never wavered in fulfilling their every obligation that would advance the cause of this church and Christianity.
     No doubt as the day approached, Mr. and Mrs. Montgomery talked over the days of their courtship fifty years before the cabaret, the musical comedies; of the mighty little use of the divorce court, and of the few hasty marriages - marriages then lasted until death do them part. The courtship days of fifty years ago included the straw ride; the huskin' bee; the spelling school; apple pairin' [sic]; school house debate; Sunday buggy or sleigh riding.
     The coming together of the immediate relatives at the home of their only child was a fitting occasion in honor of the many years of prosperous and blessed union that has been the privilege of these two to enjoy and be happy in the reminiscences of the past, and pleasures of the present.
     Mr. and Mrs. H. W. Montgomery conceived the idea of having Father and Mother Montgomery with them on the occasion of their half century of wedded life, and so notified them. Mr. and Mrs. Montgomery consequently went to the home of their son, Hi, on the Saturday evening previous, so they would be sure to be on hand to enjoy the occasion, and along with them went Mr. and Mrs. Harry M. Dungan, and of course, we presume the aged couple supposed these two together with the son and family would constitute the guests, but when the wedding day arrived, there arrived also to celebrate with them, Mrs. Ed. Fiegenbaum, of Geneva, Nebraska; Mrs. Henry Fiegenbaum, of Springfield, Nebraska; his brother, Hugh Montgomery and wife, of Mound City; their niece, Mrs. Will McRoberts and husband, of Mound City; Mont. Austin and family, of St. Joseph, and Mrs. Neil Hoblitzell, of Skidmore.
     Every detail looking to the completeness of arrangements for this happy and unusual event was carefully planned and carried out by the son and wife, and with the help of most pleasing environments the whole affair was one that will ever linger a green spot on the mind's tablet.
     An elegant wedding feast was served, and around the table no doubt sat as happy a group of people as ever assembled in any one home at any one time.
     As to what constituted the menu, matters not; but one may be assured it consisted of all the many good things that the bride and groom of 50 years enjoy, carefully studied out, cooked and baked by the hostess and served in a most appetizing way.
     Every detail looking to the happy event was most extraordinary success - successful in detail; in execution; in finis, and Mr. and Mrs. Montgomery have reason to be proud of the successful affair and its perfect surprise as to the coming of the guests.
     While the presents were numerous, the most conspicuous perhaps was a gold-headed cane, from that "boy" of his and his dear wife.
     At the principal table, at which were seated Father and Mother Montgomery, was a miniature roadway reaching from end to end, and along this road were marked the various wedding anniversaries. the home was elaborate in decorations, and liberality shown in the use of the chrysanthemums.
     Their two grandchildren, Miss Frances and Niel [sic], were necessarily absent by reason of being away to school.

          Biographical

     Robert Montgomery's parents were Irish, and Robert insists that he is Irish, too. He was born in Bangor, Ireland, August 9, 1837, and is therefore well on his journey to his 79th milepost, and most remarkably well preserved. At the age of 17 he turned his back to the Emerald Isle, crossed the ocean, landing in New York, January 13, 1854. He went to Jackson, Ohio, where he made his home with an uncle and where he attended school, and clerked in a wholesale store, and also clerked for the Latrobe Iron Furnace Company, and in 1860 went to Greenup county, Kentucky, where he remained a year and then returned to Ohio, and entered the employ of the Keystone Furnace Company.
     In 1861 he returned to Kentucky and assisted in recruiting a company for the Union army at Greenup, and was chosen 2d Lieutenant of Company C, 22d Kentucky Infantry. He was afterwards promoted to Aid-de-Camp on the staff of General Geo. W. Morgan. He resigned this position and was named as the sutler of the 1st Ohio Heavy Artillery.
     He participated in the battle of Pond Gap under General Garfield; at the taking of Cumberland Gap, under General Morgan; Yazoo Bluffs under Sherman and the capture of Arkansas Post.
     On being mustered out of service in 1864, he returned to Ohio, and entered the servive [sic] of the Berkley Iron Works.
     While a resident of Jackson, Ohio, he met Miss Frances White, love, courtship, and this marriage was the result of a golden wedding anniversary Sunday last.
     The bride of fifty years ago was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Hiram W. White, and was born in Londonderry, Ross county, Ohio, March 28, 1841. When a babe of five months her parents located in Jackson, Jackson county, Ohio, where she grew to womanhood, attended the schools of that city and then entered and graduated from the Western Female College, of Oxford, Ohio. At the close of the war, the White family moved to Olney, Illinois.
     It was in Olney, Illinois, at the home of the bride's parents, in the presence of a few of the more intimate friends, on November 14, 1865, that Robert Montgomery and Miss Frances White plighted their faith until death do them part, the ceremony being performed by the Rev. John Crozier, of the Olney Presbyterian church.
     To them was born one son, Hiram W., who was born in Oregon, educated in our schools here, and is now cashier of the Farmers' Bank, of Skidmore, Missouri, of which his father is the president. The son is one of Nodaway county's highly honored and respected citizens, who has inherited much of his father's business acumen. They have four children, two of whom - a son and daughter, are students in the Northwestern College at Evanston, Illinois. As far as known, there is not a single survivor of that wedding excepting the bride and groom.
     Mr. and Mrs. Montgomery were also foster parents to three nieces, whom they educated and developed into splendid and most beautiful womanhood, and they are now married, situated happily - these are Mrs. Ed. Fiegenbaum, of Geneva, Nebraska; Mrs. Henry Fiegenbaum, of Springfield, Nebraska, and Mrs. Harry M. Dungan, of Oregon.
     Mr. and Mrs. Montgomery went to Jackson, Ohio, for their wedding tour of a few weeks, and then returned to Olney, Illinois, where they remained, and where Mr. Montgomery filled various positions, before and after a tour through parts of Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, and Missouri, and a visit here with Dr. Asher Goslin, whom he met at Olney, while the Doctor was a resident at Olney.
     In 1871, Dr. Goslin wrote Mr. Montgomery that James Scott, of this city, desired to dispose of his banking interest, and as Mr. M. had had some experience in that line as an accountant in the First National Bank of Olney, he came here at once, and took over the Scott interest. This was the beginning point in the long and successful business career of Mr. Montgomery, the firm being the Montgomery Banking Company, the company being a Mr. Phillips, of Olney, Illinois.
     In January, 1872, the bank firm began as Zook & Montgomery, which continued to 1875; then Montgomery & Norman. In 1877 it became Montgomery & Roecker. In 1890 Levi Zook and his son, Charles D., became interested in the bank, and in 1895 C. D. Zook took over his father's interest and also took over Mr. Montgomery's stock, who retired from business.
     Thus closed Mr. Montgomery's active business career of 24 years - a career no man need be ashamed.
     During 1903 Mr. Montgomery and his son organized the Farmers' Bank, of Skidmore, Missouri, the former being its president, and the son, H. W. Montgomery, its cashier. It has enjoyed a good business since its organization.
     Mr. and Mrs. Montgomery live a quiet, beautiful life in the old VonLunen home, one of the old historic residences of our city.
     From early life, this couple has been prominently identified with the Presbyterian church and Sunday school, and for 44 years they have been earnest, steadfast helpers in this old historic church. Mr. M. was for 30 years its Sunday school superintendent, and for several years past has been the teacher of the men's Bible class. For thirty years Mrs. M. had charge of the women's Bible class.
     Mr. Montgomery has been a member of our city council, and during the year 1903 was our mayor, having been elected to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Henry Shutts.
     He is a member of the Oregon lodge, A. F. & A. M., and also a chapter member of the order.
     Mr. Montgomery has only two brothers living: David, of Dayton, Ohio, and Hugh, of Mound City.
     Mrs. Montgomery has only one brother living: Wallace White, of Yankton, South Dakota.
     Many beautiful tokens of love and esteem came to Mr. and Mrs. Montgomery from relative and friends.

     According to the 1900 enumeration, the head of household was Anna Feigenbaum [sic], age 42, born August 1857 in Ohio, a widowed and the mother of three children, all of whom were still alive. Two of these children were Mary Feigenbaum [sic], a 10 year old daughter (born July 1889 in Nebraska); and Clara M. Feigenbaum [sic], a 7 year old daughter (born June 1892 in Oklahoma Territory.
     Also in the household was Mary Broderrick [sic], a 71 year old widow (born May 1829 in Ohio). Mary's identity as a "daughter" of the head of household was crossed out at some point.
     The final resident of the home was May [sic] B. Broderrick [sic], age 39 (born June 1860 in Iowa). She was identified as Anna Feigenbaum's niece.
     There are some problems with this enumeration apart from the misspelling of the surnames of all concerned. The head of the household, Anna B. (Bradrick) Fiegenbaum was born in Ohio, but the date of August 1857 may not be correct. She was indeed the mother of three children, but her eldest appears to have died at an early age (before the death of Anna's husband in 1896). Two daughters survived: Helen Mary had been born in 1889 in Nebraska, and Clara Marguerite was born in 1893 in Oklahoma Territory.
     The 71 year old widow, who had first been mistakenly identified as Anna Fiegenbaum's "daughter," was no doubt the mother, Mary (Rankin) Bradrick, born in 1829 in Ohio.
     The woman identified as May [sic] B. Broderrick [sic], age 39, was in all probability Anna Fiegenbaum's younger sister, the second child born to Isaiah Allen and Mary (Rankin) Bradrick. Mary B. Bradrick appeared in subsequent enumerations of Anna's households in Chicago.
