He immigrated to America in 1889 with his parents, Frederick John and Mary Catharine (Tepe) Barkmeier, a sister and four brothers. He was only one year old when the family settled near Exeter, Nebraska. Two other brothers, Frank Ferdinand and Henry Mathias immigrated to the United States in 1887 and 1888, respectively.
