John Weinert 1859 - 1925



John Weinert was the first boy born to August and Fredericka, also the first boy born in the Arago community along the Missouri River, November 4, 1859. Since that was the year recorded that they arrived in the area it is assumed that dear Fredericka could have had quite a rough trip! 

Of course his first home was apparently the hillside dugout.

He grew up in the southeastern part of Nebraska and with his brothers helped his father in building houses and barns.
John married Anna Kaiser April 4, 1885 in Falls City, Nebraska. Anna Kaiser had moved from Dundee, Illinois with her parents, Christopher and Elisa Kaiser. They made their home in the Preston area on a farm where their first four children were born: Rosa, Henry, Edna and Arthur. They were to have three more children: Luella, Theophilus and Lawrence. 

He was a trustee in the Zion Evengelical from 1904 - 1909. In fact he held Youth Parents Association meetings in his home in 1916. He later attended the Preston Evangelical Church.


John Weinert was a successful dairyman in Rulo, Nebraska. John made a good living farming in the community and in 1919 he and Anna and Edna took a trip to the West Coast to visit the families who had moved out that way some years before. They traveled by train in December and postcard messages tell of the "unwanted" snow that Portland had when they landed at sister Fannie's house. They also visited George Scholl in California who was his nephew.


There was a concern on John's heart that his children would have a good education so after much consideration they sold the farm just east of the Zion Cemetery and in 1920 moved to Naperville, Illinois where the Evangelical church had a college and seminary. There they opened their home for boarding and later rooming, also, to the students. In order to meet the needs of their new situation they raised a big garden, having already learned the rigors of hard work back in Nebraska. Records show that they enjoyed their work. 


In the fall of 1925 John came down with pneumonia and passed away the 17th of October, 1925. Anna and daughter, Edna, continued on with the "club" as they called it. Anna suffered a slight stroke which affected her right side but was still able to help with the work, particularly the kitchen work, which was their livelihood. Then on July 9th, 1938, thirteen years after John had died, Anna went to be with those "who had gone before."


They lived at 104 S Wright Street, Naperville, DuPage, Illinois. A note of interest surrounds the house they lived in. In 1959 when Edna had to sell it the selling price was $25,000.00 and in 1996 when it was sold it commanded the price of $425,000.00! And now it is located in the "historic" area of Naperville just on the edge of C h i c a g o: 


 
John and Anna are buried in a very beautiful cemetery called "Heritage" Cemetery in Naperville, Illinois. Later Edna was laid to rest there, as well.

Map of the area where John grew up:





John Weinert was a Trustee and Steward in the Zion Evangelical Church in Arago from 1904 - 1909. This is the same church August and Fredericka went to. I had the column titles translated.  The Weinert’s were very religious people. These records came from the Tabor Church, Arago, NE.  Kent

P.S. Elizabeth aka Lizzy Scholl’s husband Ben Apel is listed as an Exorder  on this page.

Top center: Verzeichniss der = Registry of  ( the next page is actually part of this and would give us the answer for what this registry is, and the columns there most likely go with all of these entries.

Note:
MG:  I can't find the John and Anna's Census for 1920. I have even looked at their children to see if they were with them. I think the trip to Wyoming was to visit someone or on official business. John was involved in his community in Rulo holding a number of positions.  Rulo is just south of Arago.   Note that Henry is not with them in Wyoming, he was 21 and not married. He was likely home watching the farm.  John is listed in the Nebraska Dairyman's association Annual Report from 1912 to 1915.

4 Nov 1859


John Weinert was the first boy born to August and Fredericka, also the first boy born in the Arago community along the Missouri River, November 4, 1859. Since that was the year recorded that they arrived in the area it is assumed that dear Fredericka could have had quite a rough trip! Of course his first home was apparently the hillside dugout.
He grew up in the southeastern part of Nebraska and with his brothers helped his father in building houses and barns.
John married Anna Kaiser April 4, 1885 in Falls City, Nebraska. Anna Kaiser had moved from Dundee, Illinois with her parents, Christopher and Elisa Kaiser. They made their home in the Preston area on a farm where their first four children were born: Rosa, Henry, Edna and Arthur. They were to have three more children: Luella, Theophilus and Lawrence.  
He was a trustee in the Zion Evengelical from 1904 - 1909. In fact he held Youth Parent Association meetings in his home in 1916. He later attended the Preston Evangelical Church.
John Weinert was a successful dairyman in Rulo, Nebraska. John made a good living farming in the community and in 1919 he and Anna and Edna took a trip to the West Coast to visit the families who had moved out that way some years before. They visited George Scholl in California who was his nephew. They traveled by train in December and postcard messages tell of the "unwanted" snow that Portland had when they landed at sister Fannie's house. 
There was a concern on John's heart that his children would have a good education so after much consideration they sold the farm just east of the Zion Cemetery and in 1920 moved to Naperville, Illinois where the Evangelical church had a college and seminary. There they opened their home for boarding and later rooming, also, to the students. In order to meet the needs of their new situation they raised a big garden, having already learned the rigors of hard work back in Nebraska. Records show that they enjoyed their work.

Anna suffered a slight stroke which affected her right side but was still able to help with the work, particularly the kitchen work, which was their livelihood. Then on July 9th, 1938, thirteen years after John had died, Anna went to be with those "who had gone before."
