Married Henry Untiedt Sr. (1858-1950) Feb. 16, 1876.
She is the daughter of Hans (1/3/1836-10/11/1907) and Abel(6/4/1834-1/13/1906) (Veiths) Arp. They met at Davenport, IA. They lived and worked on a farm near Walcott for 7 years earning enough money to send for his parents and his sisters. His mother, Ernestine died in 1883 and is buried at Maysville, IA. In 1885, they, with Emma and Agnes and possibly Bertha as she was born in 1883, made the move to Minnesota. She would have been pregnant with Harry or he would have been a small baby at that time. Claus Untiedt, his father, came with the family and lived with them until his death in 1914. Arnold Untiedt thinks they would have come to Lake Park, IA by way of the Rock Island Railroad, then gone to the Wellhausen farm in Sioux Valley township where they lived until the house they were building on the Skunk Lake farm was completed in the spring of 1887. They then built the set of buildings that served the farm for many years. In 1918 they moved to Lake Park, IA. Alvena died in 1922.
Credit given to Inez Woodrum Edwards, his granddaughter, for much of this information.
