The Neumann-Walter Home PageUpdated February 24, 2003
I'm searching for information on relatives of JOHN NEUMANN. John came to America from Mehlgast, Germany (now Walcz, Poland) via Hamburg, Germany on the Prince Albert in 1862. He was married to Anna Hundt. John and Anna farmed in Newburg's Corners, WISCONSIN. When Anna died, John married a woman named Theresa NIKOLA and moved to Cashton, WISCONSIN. John died June 6, 1915, in Cashton and Theresa died about four years later. Would like to know more about John, his siblings, parents, anyone related to him. Also would like more information on Theresa.
I'm also looking for information on relatives of JACOB WALTER. He was born in Baden in the village of Overmoellrich in 1834 or 1835. Came to America in 1855 and married PAULINE SONNENBERG in Buchanan Township, La Crosse County, WI, in 1860. His descendants have mainly centered in WISCONSIN. Am particularly interested in finding information on the SONNENBERG name as I have very little information on my great, great-grandmother.
These are my great, great-grandfathers.
Any information would be appreciated. I'm also willing to share what I've gathered.

Grandpa stayed active after retirement by gardening. In a greenhouse built of screen windows covered in plastic, he grew plants for himself and to sell to others. The greenhouse could be disassembled for storage when not in use.
