Dubuque Daily Telegraph – Jan. 5, 1901
Davenport, Ia. Jan. 5 - Andrew Werthmann, administrator of the estate of the late Maggie Werthmann, is suing Rev. Father A. Niermann, priest in charge of one of the largest Catholic parishes of this city, for $1,488. He claims that his sister, deceased, entered into a verbal contract with Fr. Niermann by which she was to receive $2. 50 per month as a housekeeper, but that, though she worked for him for eight years, she never received the stipulated compensation. Father Niermann is fighting the claim, and the case is attracting a good deal of attention.
