I am researching the history of August Wichmann (Sept.27, 1827, Germany - June 21, 1871) and Bernardine Reverman (June 8, 1830 - June 24, 1877). They had a total of 7 children, only three of whom survived childhood. They were, Elizabeth (April 13, 1862 - March 13, 1920), Charles (November 02, 1869 - April 5, 1928) and John August (May 25, 1871 - Dec. 10, 1922). August drowned while working on a coal barge for his brother, Leo Wichmann. Bernadine died just 6 years later, leaving her children to be raised by her brother-in-law, and his wife.
Elizabeth married John Windschiegl November 22, 1888 at Mother of God Church, in Covington, KY, and had three daughters and two sons. Their names were, Caroline, Mary, Elizabeth , John and Frank. The Windschiegl family moved to the Watson District of Saskatchewan, Canada.
Charles and John August "Gus" stayed in Covington, and regained the saloon that their father August had owned. Charles never married, and Gus married Elizabeth Schroder. They had 9 children, my father, Robert Frank, was the youngest.
I would like to find more information about August and Bernadine, when and where they married, and are buried. I have no information on their siblings at this time, but will gladly share any and all information I have on their descendants. Please contact me at the e-mail and regular mailing addresses listed.
