Obituary of Rosa Bergmann Dietert

OBITUARY

Mrs. Rosa Dietert, died in San Antonio, Sunday evening at the age of 76 years, 10 months and 20 days. She was born on August 10th in the year 1841, in Reichenberg, Austria. She came to America in the year 1853, at the age of twelve years; her maiden name was Rosa Bergman, she spent most of her life in Boerne and got married in the year 1860 on April the 8th, to William Dietert. She was the mother of nine children, eight living and one dead. Those that survive her are four sons, Theo Emil and Ed. of Kerrville, Ernst of Boerne, and four daughters; Mrs. Ida Dienger, of Boerne, Mrs. Olga Seffel ad Mrs. Rosy Vernon, of San Antonio, and Miss Alma Dietert of San Antonio.  She leaves seventeen grandchildren and one great. Services were read by Rev. Geo. Belsey, the Pall Bearers were Mesdames Joe Vogt, Paul Holekamp, Gus Bower, Charles Phillip, Chris. Schrader and August Dienger.”

Her funeral notice states she died June 30, 1918 and the funeral took place in the “family residence of her son, Ernest Dietert on July 2nd, at 5 p.m.”

The obituary in a San Antonio newspaper states she died at her home on “427 Montana Street, San Antonio where she had resided the past five years”

Rosa’s death certificate states she died of typhoid fever which she contracted in Boerne, Texas (yikes) and her father’s name was Bergman and mother maiden’s name was Ohnesorge.  Riebe Undertakers prepared the body for burial and sent it to Boerne. Her name on the death certificate is Mrs. Rosie Dietert. Miss Alma Dietert of 427 Montana provided the information.

It is amazing how much information I gathered about Rosa ‘Rosie” Bergmann Dietert from four small pieces of paper! Now on to census records, San Antonio City Directories, and descendants. I wonder if there was a typhoid outbreak in Boerne in 1918.

 Rosa is Adalbertha Bergmann Adam’s sister and the wife of Wilhelm Dietert.

A Visit to the Boerne Cemetery

Since the temperature was below 100 degrees today, I decided to visit the Boerne Cemetery. I wanted to find the graves of Adalbertha’s siblings.In 1867, Adam Vogt deeded the land to the city to create the Boerne Cemetery. Conrad Adam purchased his plots in August, 1867, as many of the early settlers did. Conrad and Adalbertha tombstones are the white marble stones. Kathinka Toepperwein, their oldest daughter, is buried next to them.

To the left, under some huge oak trees, I discovered Adalbertha’s sister Amalie Bergmann Dietert!

Amalie Bergmann Dietert’s Tombstone

Rosa Bergmann Dietert was near her sister Amalie.

Anton Bergmann, their brother, was buried in another section and was fairly easy to find.

Anton Bergmann’s Tombstone

Success! I found all three!

There is one more sibling Johanna Bergmann Toepperwein. She is buried in San Antonio.

I Don’t Know Much About Joseph Bergmann my 3rd Great-Grandfather

Joseph Bergmann

I don’t know very much about  my 3rd great-grandparents, Joseph and Theresia Ohnesorge Bergmann. They arrived in Galveston on the ship Texas on 12 June 1853. Their destination was Bexar County. In New Homes in a New Land, Joseph Bergmann from Reichenberg, Bohemia arrived with 11 persons in his group. I have 7 accounted for and possibly one more named Gustav, that’s a total of 8. Who are the other 3???

Children are:

  • Adalbertha, born 30 October 1836 married Conrad Adam
  • Rosa born 10 August 1841 married Wilhelm Dietert
  • Amalia Margaret born 27 August 1844 married Heinrich Dietert
  • Anton born 2 April 1846 married Ernstine Beyer
  • Johanna born 16 September 1849 married E. A. Ferdinand Toepperwein

Some facts about Joseph Bergmann:

  • 30 September 1856 applied for citizenship
  • 1859 signed petition for create Kendall County
  • 14 March 1864 applied for a cattle brand BI and lived near Menger Creek near Boerne
  • By 1870 is eligible to vote
  • In June 1880, he is 80 years old. He and his wife are living with Henry and Amalia Bergmann Dietert
  • He died 2 January 1882 and is buried in the Boerne Cemetery
  • In September 1882, William Dietert was appointed temporary administration of the Estate of Joseph Bergmann. His main job was to “collect from Anna and Rosalia Schubert, of Reichenberg, Bohemia, the amount due by them to the heirs of Joseph Bergmann deceased.”
