Bredemeyer, John (6 FEB 1816 - 15 DEC 1888)

John Bredemeyer was born in Oldenberg, Germany, Feb. 6th, 1816. He came to America about the year 1845, stopped two years in Baltimore, and then made the trip to Wisconsin, after which he returned to Germany, where he married and, with his wife, immediately started for America again. He arrived in Wisconsin in 1850 and settled in Sheboygan Co., where he resided until five years ago, when he removed to New Holstein, Calumet Co, and has since resided there.

He was the father of five children, one son and four daughters, all of whom are living. Fred, the only son, has been a resident of this place (Colby, Clark Co., Wis.) 12 years. Of the daughters, Colby people are best acquainted with Mrs. Alex Mohr, and with Mary, who spent a portion of last summer here.

Mr. Bredemeyer was a kindly, genial gentleman, well liked by all who knew him.

He died Dec. 15th, 1888, and, besides his sons and daughters, leaves a wife to mourn his sudden death.
