Note: Newspaper article:
"Fire Destroys Two Barns
The two large barns and the ice house on the Philip Faulhaber farm north of town burned to the ground early Monday morning. The cause of the fire is unknown but is thought to have been due to
spontaneous combustion caused by the storage of a a quantity of alfalfa in one of the barns. The fire originated in the barn farthest south and the wind from that direction soon had the other barn in flames. As soon as the second barn caught fire all effort to save either building was abandoned and efforts were concentrated toward saving the house. This building was in flames several times and only prompt work saved it from burning to the ground. A cow shed setting eight feet to the south of the barn in which the fire originated failed to catch fire. All live stock and harness were gotten out of the buildings. The loss, estimated at about $7,500, was partially covered by insurance."

"MANY CHARGES
Made Against Henry Merchantell A Well Known Business Man of Forest In Divorce Papers Filed by His Wife Thursday Morning.

There promises to be quite a sensational divorce case in the next term of court. The case is brought about by Mrs. Merchantell, who sues for divorce from her husband Henry Merchantell, one of Forest's well known business men. The prominence of the parties make it all the more sensational.
In the petition filed Mrs. Merchantell says that they were married at Ada, Ohio, on the 31st of May, 1882. Since then she has been a faithful and obedient wife but during that time he has disregarded his duties as a husband and is guilty of extreme cruelty and gross neglect. His treatment has become unbearable and it is impossible to live with him, that they have been separated since the 28th of February of this year.
The plantiff claims that defendant has been cold and indifferent to her evder since their marriage, and has made her life wretched and beyond endurance. She claims that only last May a few days before she was to undergo an operation for the removal of a cancer, he left for Europe on a pleasure trip and that when he returned he never even as much as enquired the result of the operation nor the condition of her health. Not only this but she was compelled to pay $50 doctor bill and has been required to pay her own physician's bills ever since that time. The defendant, she states further, is a Dowieite and persecuted and harassed her for having a physician. The plantiff further stated in her petition that her life since their marriage has been one of hard labor, and during all that time she has done his household and other labors until her health failed. He even then refused to furnish or pay for help, and she was compelled to pay for her own help out of her private funds. By keeping boarders she was able to pay for the groceries and for other things for the table and house. Through all their married life he refused to furnish her with necessary clothing, and during those eighteen years bought her only one cloth dress, one calico dress and a pair of spectacles. She was compelled to buy all other clothing used by her during those eighteen years from her own personal fund, which was created by the income left her from her first husband.
The petitioner claims that she has paid $200 per annum amounting to $3600 in the eighteen years from her own estate. As a result they together accumulated a large amount of money. This is all in her name. The plaintiff asks that he be compelled to answer all and singular the promises. She prays for a divorce, that she be restored to her maidenname and that he be required to pay reasonable alimony."

May 2, 1901

"The Merchantell divorce case has been settled by arbitration, Mr. H. Merchantell agreeing to pay a certain amount of money deciced upon by a committee appointed by both parties concerned, to Mrs. H. Merchantell. -- Forest Review." Philippine Faulhaber died on 27 May 1901 at Forest, Hardin Co., OH, at age 71 May 27, 1901

"SUDDENLY

Death Came to Mrs. Merchantell of Forest.

Mrs. H. Merchantell, of Forest, died very suddenly Saturday afternoon. Her death was due to heart disease and came to her while sitting in her chair. She had felt in her usual health at noon but shortly after dinner began to feel badly. The announcement of her death was quite a shock to her friends.
Deceased was about 60 years old and was a well known and highly respected lady of Forest. Her remains were taken to Ada Sunday and the funeral occurred there at 2 o'clock today." She was buried in May 1901 at Woodlawn Cemetery, Ada, Hardin Co., OH.

Notice from newspaper, May, 1942:
"VIRGINIA WAS NEVER LATE NOR ABSENT
Virginia Faulhaber, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Faulhaber, of Walton, has made a record for herself during her school days.
She has been neither absent nor tardyin a dozen years, eight of them in District No. 24 and four in the Walton high school."

Notice from newspaper:
"Proves a girl can take over farming work
So you don't think a girl can do farm labor work? Well, Virginia Faulhaber, 17, is a girl who does the work of a hired man.
Now a high school graduate, Virginia was born and raised onher father's 180 acre farm near Bennet. She milks cows, grinds chicken feed, runs a tractor, drives a team of horses, raises chickens, shucks corn and does all the other farm jobs of a hired hand.
Virginia thinks anyone who wants to work on a farm can do the work. However, a city girl shouldn't try to do it unless she has some farm experience. It is important, Virginia feels, that the farmer take time to tell his new helper how to do things.
Virginia, who has always liked the farm, took over the job as top helper when her two older brothers went to work in war factories. She says farming is a lot of fun and she would not live in the city for anything. When something happens to the tractor Virginia drives the team of horses.
A member of the 4-H club for two years, she took sewing, but she didn't find out about the livestock group until later. Out of the farm's 1000 chickens, Virginia has about 37 of her own."

Walter Ludwig Faulhaber

M, b. 15 November 1824, d. 15 May 1907
     Walter Ludwig Faulhaber was also known as Walter Louis as an adult in America.
Note: The following was taken from the book by the Chapman Bros. of Chicago, "Portraits and Bigraphical Album of Lancaster County, Nebraska." Printed in 1888.

"LOUIS FAULHABER, one of the most thrifty German farmers of Stockton precinct, owns and occupies a fine estate, embracing 320 acres of land on sections 3 and 4, his residence being on the latter. The homestead is noticeable for its good improvements, and especially the large number of fruit and ornamental trees, which he has planted to the extent of about 700, besides a large quantity of grapes. Like most of the enterprising men about him, he makes a specialty of stock-raising, and has acquired a fine property, besides surrounding himself and family with all the comforts of life.

"The first years of our subject were passed on the other side of the Atlantic, in the little Kingdom of Bavaria, where his birth took place November 18, 1826. When a child five years of age his parents emigrated to America and settled in Seneca County, Ohio, where they spent the remainder of their lives. Louis remained on the farm until a youth of fourteen years, and was then apprenticed to learn the shoemaker's trade, which he followed for a period of nine years. In the meantime he had been married, and in June, 1850, turned his face toward the farther West, and crossing the Mississippi, accompanied by his wife, took up a tract of land in Manitowoc, Wisc., where he lived until the spring of 1875. His next removal was to this county, when he took up the land which he still occupies.

"The wife of our subject, to whom he was married in Tiffin, Seneca Co., Ohio, March 1, 1848, was in her girlhood Miss Helen Sauter, a native of the same country as her husband, and born April 1, 1830 She was a little child three years of age when she came to America with her parents, and they settled first in Tiffin, Ohio. Later they removed to Wood County, that State, where the father died about 1856. The mother still survives, and is living at Perrysburg, Wood Co., Ohio.

"Of the thirteen children born to Mr. and Mrs. Faulhaber, the record is as follows: Their eldest son, John, died when one and one-half years old, in 1849; Louis is on the police force of the city of Lincoln; William is farming in Stockton precinct, this county; Mary is the wife of John Lemke, and lives in Stockton Precinct; John is traveling salesman for a firm in Milwaukee; Theodore is farming in Brown County, this State; Charles and Henry are residents of Cherry County; Phillip, the youngest, is engaged in farming for himself in Stockton precinct; Frederick and Emma are at home with their parents, and Clara is the wife of Frederick Retzlaff, of Stevens Creek Precinct.

"Mr. Faulhaber, politically, is a conscientious Democrat, and a man who keeps himself well posted upon matters of general interest. He was particularly fortunate in his choice of a wife and helpmate, having a lady who looks well to the ways of her household and those little matters which have so great an influence in the happiness of a home. They have labored industriously in acquiring their fine property, and are now in the enjoyment of the fruits of their early toils, while surrounded by hosts of friends who have learned to value them at their true worth. They were reared in the precepts of the German Lutheran Church, to which they still loyally adhere, together with their children."

The following was contributed by Mrs. Emma Maahs and told to Junerose Kayser in the spring of 1959, after Junerose had started the research on the Faulhaber family tree several years before:

"We left Reedsville, Wisconsin in March, 1873 for Lincoln, Nebraska. The day we left Reedsville it was very cold. The roads were blocked with snow, the neighbors had to shovel the snow for a road. From our home near Reedsville, we went by sled to Grimm Station where we boarded a train to Manitowoc. There we had a short visit with mother's sister, Aunt Christina. Then on to Chicago, arriving in the early evening. Then we left Chicago around midnight. We spent the following night in Plattsmouth, Nebraska. Albert was just a baby and we all took turns holding him and entertaining him on the trip. Early the next morning we boarded another train for Lincoln, arriving shortly before noon. There we were met by cousins, Mr. & Mrs. George Weber, who helped father find a home to live in until we could locate a farm. Father and my brothers Lewis and William, with agents, went to locate a farm near Steven's Creek Precinct. After about two weeks father moved us out to the new farm. We enjoyed the trip of about ten miles very much. We rode in a spring wagon. The weather was mild and we saw many wild ducks on small ponds and many prairie chickens and rabbits on our way to our new home.

"In fact, we had two houses on our new farm. They were small, so my brothers slept in one and my father and mother and we girls slept in the other one. A number of families came to Nebraska from Wisconsin after we settled. The Grimmes, Stebers, Luthers, Manleys, and some others that I have forgotten. All lived with us until they could locate a farm and build a home."

He was born on 15 November 1824 at Bruchmühlbach, Palatinate (now Rhein-Pfalz), Germany. He was the son of Isaak Jakob Ludwig Faulhaber and Anna Louisa Munzinger. Walter Ludwig Faulhaber was christened on 18 November 1824 at Evangelical Church, Lambsborn, Palatinate. He married Helena Eliza Sauter, daughter of John Sauter and Helena Hoffman, on 1 March 1849 at Tiffin, Seneca Co., OH, Ceremony by Rev. John J. Beilharz. Walter Ludwig Faulhaber lived in 1870 at Rockland, Manitowoc Co., WI.1 He lived in 1888 at Stockton Precinct, Lancaster Co., NE. He lived in 1900 at Stockton Precinct, Lancaster Co., NE.2 He died on 15 May 1907 at Walton, Lancaster Co., NE, at age 82. He was buried on 17 May 1907 at Trinity Lutheran Church Cemetery, Walton, Lancaster Co., NE.
