Elkader Register, Thur., 02 Maar. 1922. Farmersburg columns.

At the home of her daughter, Mrs. John Schrader, another of the old settlers of our County passed quietly away.

Marie Dorethea Nevermann was born in Gnavesdorf Mecklenburg Schwerin, Germany, on October 16th, 1837. Being educated in the schools of the old country, she grew to womanhood in the parental home.

On Nov. 4th, 1862, she was married to Fritz Nevermann, who preceded her to the eternal shore on October 25th, 1918.

In 1870 they decided to leave the old country and came to the United States settling here in Iowa, in Clayton County. For 4 years they lived in Farmersburg and for 22 years on a farm in Monona township and afterwards in Farmersburg again. When Mr. Nevermann became feeble they moved to the home of their daughter.

Their married life was blessed with five children. Two are dead, Ida dying in the old country and Henry near Castalia, Iowa.

The living are Paulina, Mrs. John Schrader; Bertha, Mrs. August Schrader; and Fred Nevermann of Giard township. Mother Nevermann failed rapidly since last fall.

Since December she was bound to her bed. The end came very peacefully in the early morning hours of Sunday, Feb. 19th.

She leaves besides her children, fourteen grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. She was laid to rest on Wednesday, Feb. 22nd. The funeral was conducted from the house to the Gudden Church and Cemetery [sic]. The Rev. G. F. Braun officiating, assisted by Rev. Hillman of Monona. The Rev. and Mrs. Hillman rendered very fine music.


Note: Gooding cemetery. Gravestone spells surname NEVERMAN
