Anna Elizabeth SCHNEIDER m. Gustav HINTERMEISTER -Switzerland to Andalusia, IL.
Posted by: Mary Mc (ID *****8402) Date: January 18, 2005 at 08:40:05
  of 2978

I am searching for any info on the family of Gustav HINTERMEISTER, born March 30, 1852 and his wife, Anna Elizabeth SCHNEIDER. It is believed he was born in Zurich, Switzerland and was the son of Hans Jakob HINTERMEISTER and Anna MEYER.

On Feb. 18, 1878, (in IL.) Gustav married Anna Elizabeth SCHNEIDER, who was born April 17, 1850, Bern (Berne), Switzerland. They had a seventeen-acre farm about 20 minutes from Bern. They had dairy cows. While working in the fields, the children would stop to listen to the beautiful sounds of the church bells and the clock tower in Bern.

Anna, who sometimes used her middle name, Elizabeth, was the oldest daughter of Johann (John) SCHNEIDER and Christina STUKE of Bern, Switzerland. Johann and Christina brought their six children to the U.S. in 1870. Before sailing, the children learned poems about their new home - America. It would have been a sad time for Johann (John) and his children, when Christina, died less than 2 years later.

The 1870 census lists the SCHNEIDER children as:

Elizabeth (Anna), 20
Louisa, 19
Godfrey, 17
Ottof (Adolf), 12
Charles, 10
and Caroline, 6.

Their ages may be off a bit. One U.S. census lists their surname as SNIDER.

Gustav (Gus) and Anna were married in Rock Island County, IL. (1878). They raised their nine children on a farm close to Andalusia, IL. in Rock Island County.

The nine children of Gustav HINTERMEISTER and Anna SCHNEIDER are:

John HINTERMEISTER - born in 1879
Lucy - 1880
Albert - 1882
Mary - 1884
Rosa - 1886
Gus - 1888
Julia - 1889
Annie - 1891
Nellie - 1894

If you have any information to share on the SCHNEIDER or HINTERMEISTER families, it would be greatly appreciated.
