Reithmeyer—On Thursday, March 3, 1910, at 7 a.m., Florian Reithmeyer, in the seventieth year of his age.
Funeral from the residence of his son, Frank P. Reithmeyer, 529 Quincy street northwest, Petworth, on Monday, March 7, at 9 a.m. thence to Shrine of the Sacred Heart, where mass will be said at 10:00. Relatives and friends invited to attend. Interment at Mount Olivet Cemetery.
The photo is of the house he lived in with his son, Frank.
He was Christened on May 3, 1840 as a Catholic in Allfel, Mosbach, Baden. He immigrated to the United States in 1867 and settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was married to Amelia and they had the following children:
Only being able to find two census records for him this is what shows:
1880 Census shows Florian was living in Philadephia, Pennsylvania. His occupation was at a Beer Saloon but not sure if he owned it or just worked there. There was a servant by the name of Annie Welsh, and her daughter Annie Welsh, living with the family. Both of Florian's parents are listed as being born in Germany as well as him.
1900 census has Florian remarried for 7 years and living with his 2nd wife, Elizabeth, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with his son, Joseph, and her two step-daughters, Anna and Christianna Miller. His occupation is listed as being a janitor. He is shown to have immigrated here in 1867. He has been in the United States for 33 years and is not a naturalized citizen. He owns his own house on North Fourth Street.
His first wife, Amelia is buried at Old Saint Josephs Church Cemetery in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and his second wife, Elizabeth Berg Reithmeyer at New Cathedral Cemetery in Philadelphia, Pennsyvlania.
Florian was laid to rest on March 7, 1910. The cemetery records have him listed as Florine Keithmeyer.
I want to thank Stan Jett and Beth who took the time to get the photo. I especially would like to thank Beth who walked the area for an hour, in the cold and wind, to make sure she had the correct stone to photograph.
I also want to thank eobancestry for sponsoring his page.
