Descendants of Andreas Hoonerlagen-Grete Greteman



1-Andreas Hoonerlagen-Grete Greteman was born in 1789. Andreas married Anna Maria Johann. Anna was born from 1795 to 1800. They had one known son, Johann Otto.

2-Johann Otto Greteman was born on 27 Mar 1817 in Bornholte, was christened on 29 Mar 1817 in Verl, died on 23 Nov 1867 in St. Lucas at age 50, and was buried in St. Lucas Cemetery. Johann married Maria Catherine Magerkohl Hahno on 31 Jul 1840, daughter of Joannes Magerkohl Hahno and Elisabeth. Maria was christened on 10 Apr 1808 and died in 1852 at age 44. They had one son: Eberhard Bernhard.

Born as Honerlagen-Grete, he changed his name to Greteman when he came to the United States. Two of their children died in infancy in Liemke, Prussia. In 1851, Otto and his wife, Maria, and 2 children emigrated to the United States. Maria and youngest son died at sea of cholera. Johan Otto and his remaining son, Eberhard, age 5, landed at New Orleans and traveled up the Mississippi River to Chicago. He married Elizabeth Kemen circa 1853. After residing in Chicago for a few years they moved to Minnesota for one year. They came to Iowa, and farmed in Fayette County.

3-Eberhard Bernhard Greteman was born on 26 May 1847 in Liemke, Paderborn, Nordrhein-Westfalen, died on 20 Mar 1928 in Canute, Washita Co., Oklahoma at age 80, and was buried in St. Francis Cemetery. Eberhard married Elizabeth Clusterer on 30 Sep 1869. Elizabeth was born on 5 Dec 1847, died on 10 Feb 1921 in Scheidel, Oklahoma at age 73, and was buried in St. Francis Cemetery. They had ten children. This was translated from Der Carroll Demokrat, a German-language newspaper published in Carroll, Iowa, between about 1874 and 1920. It was originally published in a special 25th Anniversary Edition of the paper on Friday, 20 September 1899. No changes were made to the place or name spellings, but notes at the end were added. It reads as follows:
Eberhard Gretemann
This gentleman was born in Neukarnitz, jurisdiction of Nieberg, administrative district of Prussian Minden, on 26 May 1846. When he was 5 years old he immigrated to America with his parents, but during the trip the family suffered a heavy blow from fate. A murderous cholera outbreak occurred aboard the ship, and Mr. E. Gretemann's dear mother and also a brother were taken by the sickness, whereupon they and many other deceased passengers found a watery grave at sea. His father then settled down in O'Plain, a small town twelve miles from Chicago, where the old gentleman worked as a hired man. After about three years his father moved to Fayette County, Iowa, where he devoted himself to farming, and little Eberhard attended school and received his First Holy Communion. He now helped his father in running the farm, and assisted until his father died on 20 November 1867. He worked another year for other farmers, and then married a respectable young woman, Elisabeth Kloesener, who also had been born in Neuckarnitz on 5 December 1845. The young couple rented a farm in Winneshiek County, and in 1879 they moved to Pleasant Valley Township, Carroll County, where they purchased 80 acres of prairie. Small was their start and small was the first little house where they lived happily and peacefully, but little by little they worked with God's blessing and untiring diligence. At first they purchased another 20 acres, and then an additional 40 acres. They also purchased another 80 acres in Minnesota for their son, and built on their farm assorted buildings such as barns, stables, storehouses, and a beautiful large residence. The Gretemann family are honest Germans who enjoy the respect of all their acquaintances. Ten children are the fruit of this Christian marriage, namely: Maria, Mrs. Jos. Hoffmann; Heinrich, married to Anna Backer; Anna, Mrs. Joh. Hausmann; Johann; Franziska, Mrs. Jos. Spitz in Minn.; Katherina; Anton; Eberhard; Bernhard; and Frank.
Notes: The family names Gretemann and Hoffmann were spelled in the article with a double "n" but I think today the families use only one "n" at the end. The name Kloesener is spelled sometimes with an initial "C" in some sources. There does not appear to be a German town anywhere called "Neukarnitz" or "Neuckarnitz" as spelled in the article. I am reasonably certain that it refers to "Neukaunitz," a village which today is part of the town of Verl, south of Bielefeld, and just east of Guetersloh.

History of Winneshiek County Vol. II George W. Kruse, who is successfully engaged in general farming and stock-raising in Washington township and who is numbered among the most successful and progressive of the younger agriculturists of this vicinity, is one of Winneshiek county's native sons, born July 10, 1881. His parents, Joseph and Mena (Kramer) Kruse, were also natives of Winneshiek county and the father turned his attention to farming here at an early age, being today in control of one of the finest agricultural properties in Washington township. His wife passed away in February, 1913.To their union were born eleven children: George W., the subject of this review; John, of Jackson township; Catherine, the wife of Nicholas Lusson, of St. Lucas; Casper and Louis, both residing in Jackson township; Frances, living in Washington township; Edward, who also makes his home in Washington township; Philip, deceased; Martin, of the same township; Cilla, who has passed away; and Cilla, residing in Washington township.
George W. Kruse was reared under the parental roof and by assisting his father with the work of the homestead gained at an early age a comprehensive and practical knowledge of the essential details of farm operation. He remained at home until he was twenty-five years of age, when his father gave him eighty acres of land on section 26, to which Mr. Kruse of this review afterward added eighty more, turning his attention to its cultivation as an independent agriculturist. Upon the property he has made excellent improvements, erecting fine outbuildings and installing the necessary machinery, and the place is today valuable and desirable in every particular, its condition being a visible evidence of the owner's well directed energy and thrift.
On the 20th of June, 1911, Mr. Kruse was united in marriage to Miss Catherine Greteman, a daughter of Jacob and Susan (Lusson) Greteman. Mr. Kruse is a member of the Roman Catholic church and is connected fraternally with the Knights of Columbus. He is a democrat in his political beliefs and is now serving as township trustee, discharging his duties in a straightforward, capable and practical manner. He is, however, not an active politician, preferring to give his undivided attention to his business affairs, which are capably conducted so that he is justly classed with the progressive farmers of his native county.

Translated from Der Carroll Demokrat, a German-language newspaper published in Carroll, Iowa, between about 1874 and 1920. It was originally published in a special 25th Anniversary Edition of the paper on Friday, 20 September 1899. Mr. Gretemann was born in St. Lucas on 4 April 1866, to honest and Christian people who provided their intelligent son Bernard a good education. Here he bustled about in the exuberance of youth, attending the parochial school with his spelling book under his arm. He was an industrious and well-behaved student, which pleased his parents as well as the nuns. Of course, the happiest time for little Bernard was when his First Holy Communion approached. After adequate instruction, he received the Bread of Life from the good pastor. During this period of time he assisted his father in running the family farm until he was 21 years old. He then entered the employment of the Union Telephone Co. and, after a year, relocated to Roselle Township, Carroll County, Iowa, where he was employed for half a year with Mr. C. Kohorst. Then he worked for four years as a teacher in Pleasant Valley Township. In 1888, he joined with his brother, Mr. Frank Gretemann, and erected a general merchandise store in the little town of Willey. While his brother Frank conducted the business, he worked one more year as an elementary school teacher.
On 10 November 1891, he married Miss Anna Schmitt, a well-brought-up and respectable young woman, who was born in St. Lucas on 8 November 1865.
In the following year, Mr. Bernard Gretemann took over the business on his own, and since 1890 he has served as Postmaster of Willey. Within a year of taking over the business, he had to enlarge the store area with an addition because the business had experienced an unexpected boom. As he enlarged the space for the business, he also increased his inventory, so that today the business is among the most notable in the county, and the abundance of inventory leaves nothing to be desired. This significant success alone speaks to the quality of merchandise and the honesty of the management. The residents of Willey and Pleasant Valley Township have long understood that it is unnecessary to do their shopping in Carroll or other large towns. In the substantial business of Mr. Gretemann they can shop just as cheaply and receive quality as good as in any better store in a large city. Therein they have the benefit of being able to rely on the respectability of Mr. Gretemann, who is always ready to please his customers. In order to supply a long-standing need, he has been renting the business space across the street since last year, and here stocks a selection of farm machines and implements, oils and paints. In truth, the business of Mr. Gretemann is a very solid one that enjoys the support of all the residents of Willey and the surrounding area.

B. Greteman, who has been identified with mercantile interests at Willey for the past twenty-four years, is one of the most prosperous and enterprising residents of the town and is now at the head of one of the largest general stores in Carroll county. His birth occurred at St. Lucas on the 4th of April, 1866, his parents being Otto and Elizabeth (Kemen) Greteman, both of whom were natives of Germany. The father, who was a farmer by occupation, crossed the Atlantic to the United States in 1850, landing at New Orleans and making his way up the Mississippi River to Chicago. After residing in that city for a number of years he was married and removed to Minnesota, where he remained for one year. On the expiration of that period he came to Iowa, locating on a farm in Fayette county, where he continued to reside until called to his final rest in 1867. His wife passed away in 1885.
B. Greteman, who was the sixth in order of birth in a family of nine children, attended the common schools in the acquirement of an education. He then went to work in order to earn money sufficient to buy books that he might continue his studies. In 1887 he began teaching school and followed that profession for four or five years, imparting clearly and readily to others the knowledge that he had acquired. In 1887 he also embarked in the general mercantile business at Willey in association with his brother Frank, who now resides at Templeton. During the period that our subject taught school, the store was conducted by Frank Greteman. In 1891, however, B. Greteman became an active factor in the management of the establishment and now conducts the same independently. He carries a large and well selected stock of all goods handled in the modern department store, including machinery, hardware, etc. Having at all times manifested an earnest desire to please and satisfy his patrons, his trade has steadily grown until it has assumed large and profitable proportions.
Mr. Greteman has been married twice. On the 10th of November, 1891, he wedded Miss Anna Smith, a daughter of Jacob Smith, who was a farmer by occupation. By that union there were six children, namely: Jacob, who is a student in St. Benedict's College at Atchison, Kansas; John and Clem, who are employed in their father's store; Victor and Joseph, both of whom are attending school at Willey; and Rosie, who lives with her aunt, Mrs. Victor Croatt, at Waucoma. The wife and mother passed ay in 1903 and in January, 1907, Mr. Greteman was again married, his second union being with Mary Meisner, a daughter of Leonard Meisner. Unto them have been born three children: Frank, Bernhard and Lawrence. Mr. Greteman is a democrat in his political views but not bitterly partisan and supports the men and measures that he deems will best conserve the general welfare. He has held the positions of town clerk, school treasurer and postmaster of Willey, ever discharging his official duties in a most prompt and capable manner. An enterprising and progressive citizen, he assisted in the installation of the first telephone system in Willey. In addition to his mercantile interests he likewise owns a creamery. Fraternally he is identified with the Knights of Columbus at Carroll, while his religious faith is indicated by his membership in the German Catholic church at Willey. His success has been won entirely along lines of old and time-tried maxims. He has carefully planned his business, has the ability and executive force to carry it forward and has gained thereby a gratifying prosperity.
In 1900 they lived in Pleasant Valley next to the George Balk Family.
