In Memoriam.

In loving remembrance of our dear mother, Mrs. Catherine Mayer, who departed this life five years ago, Jan. 27, 1908.

Five years have passed, our hearts still sore.
And as time goes on we miss you more;
Her loving smile, her welcome face,
None can fill her vacant place.

Sadly missed by her


Brief Genealogy

Katherine August Etling's family

John Mühlemann's family

Details of the birth family of John Mühlemann (1853/54 - ? ) are not currently known.

The exact spelling of "John" Mühlemann's surname has not been resolved. Apart from the questions of using an umlaut or not (ü or ue) or a double or single 'n' (mann or man), the rest of the name has been subjected to interpretation in U.S. census returns, probate court documents, newspaper obituaries and state death certificates. Variations include: Mühlemann, Mühlmann, and Mülhemann (you may review the sources in our database). A definitive answer may no doubt require research at the family's place of origin in Switzerland. In the meantime, I have chosen to use Mühlemann.
