Paper written by Leah Schrotberger Olfson:
The following information regarding Meier relations comes from the will of George Schrotberger, who died 2/21/1936 in Lincoln, Nebraska and was married to Margaret Meier. who apparently predeceased him. He bequeathed money to each of the following:

Mrs. Allie Hewlett and Mrs. Ada Rathbun both of DeWitt Nebraska, both of whom were identified as children of his deceased sister Mrs. Barbara Maria Meier. Later in the will he makes another bequest to these same people as children of John N. Meier, deceased brother of
George's wife, Margaret. Apparently he considered it unfair to deprive them of the share they would have on the Meier side just because they already had a share on the Schroiberger side!

His sister Mrs. Minnie Meier of Dwight, who survived him.

Herbert Meier of Dwight and Chloe Kelch ofDwight, children of his wife's deceased brother George L. Meier.

Henry L. Meier of Dwight, his wife's brother.

Unnamed children of his wife's deceased brother. John L. Meier, described as formerly living at Fort Wayne, Indiana. As this seems to be the same brother who was the father of Allie Hewlett and Ada Rathbun, this reference is unclear. He may have had a second family.

Curtis, Elmer and Clyde [my father] Schrotberger and Julia Gantzert, the children of his wife's deceased sister Augusta Barbara Schrotberger [my grandmother].

Estella E. Unz of Louisville, Ky, and Vema Couse of Beaumont, Texas, children of his wife's decease sister, Mrs. Caroline Philapina Unz of Reddick.
