Gustav Bergmann Family

I can’t believe it! It’s the second week of October. Even though friends were visitng, I thought I would be able to squeeze in a post or two last week. But as you can tell, that didn’t happen. On Monday morning, October 3, my son called. He was in the hospital. It seems his appendix didn’t like him anymore and wanted to leave and it did just that! I am thankful he didn’t try to “tough it out” thinking the pain would go away. As a result, the week quickly slipped by.

St. John's Lutheran Church San Antonio, Texas

Great news! I have new information about Wilhelmina Bergmann, wife of Gustav Bergmann and daughter-in-law of Joseph Bergmann. I received an email from Maria Pfeiffer, archivist at St. John’s Lutheran Church in San Antonio. She checked their burial files and found that Wilhelmina’s maiden name was Knopp and not Finger as was stated on Mina Bergmann Federolf’s death certificate. Mina was her second oldest daughter. Wilhelmina’s birth and death dates were also listed! Yea!! She was born 2 April 1832 and died 5 May 1904. Her tombstone had 1905 as her death date and no other dates.

The Bergmann families were members of St. John’s Lutheran Church which is located on Nueva Street in downtown San Antonio. All three daughters married there.

Tombstone Tuesday: Bergmann

Yesterday, my friend Donna and I went on a genealogy field trip. We visited five cemeteries and since it was the end of September we thought the 100 degree weather was over, but not so. Nevertheless, I found everyone I’d thought I would find including, someone I hoped I would find!

Our first stop was the Old St. John’s Lutheran Cemetery sometimes called the Old German Lutheran Cemetery. It is located East of downtown San Antonio near several other cemeteries.Gustav Bergmann, Joseph and Theresia Bergmann’s oldest son, was buried there according to the St. John’s Lutheran archive records.  Of course, there always is a chance that there isn’t a tombstone, but I was not disappointed. A beautiful gray granite stone with curbing around the plot.

Next we went to City Cemetery #1 to locate Johanna Bergmann Toepperwein’s tombstone. Johanna is the youngest daughter of Joseph and Theresia Bergmann.

We visited the Hermann Sons’ Cemetery which is located in the same area as the Old Saint John’s Lutheran Cemetery and City Cemetery #1. We found Gustav’s oldest daughter, Rosa,  and some of his grandchildren plus Ida his youngest daughter. I didn’t know where she was buried and was excited to find her and her husband!

Ida Bergmann Groos and her husband Fred. “Fritz” Groos. The lucky find!! Woo hoo!!

Ida was born in 1873 and died in 1901.

Fritz belonged to the Woodman of the World. They always have the most interesting tombstones.

He was born in 1857 and died in 1906.
