Maria Anna Pietz Kathol was widowed in 1873 and married her second husband, Herman Wiebelhaus, the following year. He brought three children to the marriage while she brought six children. Together, they had nine more children, producing 18 children between them.

After they married in 1874, Herman and Maria Anna decided to emigrate farther west, choosing to settle in Cedar County, Nebraska, where they took up a homestead about 1 ½ miles southwest of where the Bow Valley Catholic church now stands. In those days it was unbroken prairie, with the pioneer settlement of St. Helena 10 miles away, nearest and only town.

After Herman Wiebelhaus died in 1893, Maria moved into town. She lived with her sons Frank Kathol and Henry Wiebelhaus until she died in 1922 at the age of 79.
