Mary Ann Martin

1853 Feb 7: Born to Hiram Martin and Esther Erb in Elmira, Waterloo Co. Ontario, CA. (2)

1871 Dec 31: Henry E. Wismer marries Mary Ann Martin. (1,2)

  1873 Jan 30: Laura Helena
  1874 May 18: Ella Etta
  1876 Jan 26: Angeline Minerva
  1878 Feb  1: Amsie Anderson
  1879 Apr 28: Noah Alexander
  1880 Jul  9: Ervine Isaiah
  1882 Oct 20: Clarence Arthur
  1885 Jul  7: John Henry

1876-1878: The first three children were born in Province of Ontario, CA. The rest were born in Marion Co., KS. (1,2)

1887 Aug 8: Henry E. Wismer dies; buried Brunk Family Cemetery. (3)

1921 Apr 23: Mary Ann Wismer dies; buried Brunk Family Cemetery. (4)

?? Is this Mrs. Henry E. Wismer?

The Brunk Cemetrery is where Henry E. is buried, so it also is a reasonable location for his wife. Sources (2) and (4) agree on a date of birth of Febrary 7, 1853 for Mary Ann Wismer.


Canada Area Land Owners, 1885 (5 p31)

However, (2) shows a second marriage of Mary Ann Martin Wismer to John Schwindemann on April 28, 1893. No location is given. Fina-A-Grave for the Brunk Cemetery shows both a Mary Ann Wismer and a Mary Schwendiman, with both born in 1853 and dying in 1921. Something seems to be confused here. The same lady probably does not have two separate graves. Some boots on the ground may be required to resolve this.
