Shared Note

This couple sailed from Bremen, Germany to America, landing in New Orleans, Dec. 4, 1850. They traveled up the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers to Cincinatti, OH. Evidently some Trimpes were there as the city directory named Trimpes. He worked as a carpenter and his wife worked in a tavern. In 1856 the Trimpes, along with the Rud Schuermann, Chris Folkmann, and the H Bremer families, went to Sec. 28, Iowa Twp, Iowa County, Iowa. They bought 10 acres of timber and started to build their log house. Each family bought an 80 acre farm side by side in Sec. 27 where a kiln was built on the Trimpe farm for making bricks to build their new homes. The Trimpe home was completed in 1860 and bulldozed down in Dec. 2000. These four families were instrumental alont with others in founding the St. Johns Lutheran Church.
