Frederick August and Clara Elizabeth (Wiszmann) Barkmeier


Frederick August Barkmeier and Clara Elizabeth Wiszmann were married in 1916. Clara was the sister of Anna Catharine Wiszmann who married Fred's brother, George Henry Barkmeier.

A 1918 Fillmore County atlas shows that Fred and Clara rented a 80 acre farm southeast of Exeter, Nebraska from Fred's brother, William "Bill" Frederick Barkmeier. George and Anna Catharine owned a farm just a quarter mile east of the farm that Fred and Clara rented. Frank Ferdinand Barkmeier, a brother, also lived immediately east of George and Anna Catharine.

A 1905 plat map shows that the farm rented by Fred and Clara in 1918 was then owned by Fred and Bill's brother August Frank Barkmeier.
