Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jun. 29, 1819
Bavaria (Bayern), Germany
Death: May 17, 1905
Osage County
Missouri, USA

Born in Bavaria between June 28-30, 1819. Died May 17, 1905. He and his family came to America in 18 Dec 1856 and according to the 1900 Census, he never learned to speak English. He was married about 1844 in Bavaria to Barbara Richter. They left their home in Barenfels, which is listed as the last place of residence on the ship records. Barenfels, Kingdom of Bavaria, is now part of Germany. It is on the south eastern side of Germany. They left with their young children, Johann 9 (1847-?), Frederick Franz 7 (1848-1934), Georg 3 (1853-1925) and Anna 2 (1854-1858) and immigrated to the US on a ship named, Itzstein & Welcker, commanded by a Captain Balleer, which left Bremen mid-October 1856 and arrived 12-18-1856 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Captain Balleer filed the papers 12/30/1856. According to immigration ship papers, they were heading to Cincinnati. Not sure if they got off in St Louis and migrated west down the Missouri to Hermann or Osage City, or went to Ohio first and came back this way. There were other family members that had already established places in the Rich Fountain. Their son George was born in Mo 1857. And they lost their young daughter Anna age 4, July 23 1858. Anna is buried at Rich Fountain's Sacred Heart cemetery. They also had another son, and daughter named Frances Anna born in MO as well. They lived between Freeburg (which had not been established as a town yet) and Rich Fountain, Missouri near some of their siblings (see below). Johannes George & Barbara had 3 more children born in US John G 1857-1929, Joseph 1959-1936, and showing up on 1870 census, Franciska(Frances Ann). By 1870 Joh Georg is widow. They lived on a 90 acre (two tracts 40a & 50a)farm known in area as "Hoeller hill", between Freeburg and Rich Fountain. The farm was purchased in 1928 from estate of his daughter Frances Ann Hoellerer. I have checked, they are not on the newly re-worked list at Rich Fountain's Scared Heart Parish cemetery unless they have been dumped in with the HALLER familes (often confused but no connection). The rest of their kids are buried at St Boniface Cemetery at Koeltztown, MO and Vistation Cemetery at Vienna, Missouri.
Johann's sister, Maria Margaretha Magdalena Hoellerer 1820-? was married to Johann 'Georg' Theim (1804-1866). George and family are on the 1850 census in Osage county same place as 1860 census. Barbara's brother was Franz Richter (1824-1877), he was married to Mary Margaretha Merz. Found them on 1860 & 1870 Census'. Johannes & Barbara's siblings (and wives) are buried at Rich Fountain, Mo. I have a copy of the funeral bill, and receipt for a coffin which is what lead me to this search in Freeburg.
According to Meg Poettgen, member of Holy Family Parish, who looked it up in the Parish records, latin version of his name..Johannes Georgius Hoellerer...was the first person buried at the Holy Family Cemetery. Rev. G Fick performed his funeral. Unfortunately, he is probably buried with no headstone or grave marker, there's no receipt for one anyway. Church cemetery records say, Old Section, Row D, Grave #30.
