Bachenberg

This page contains census information and birth, marriage and death record information pertaining to my German family lines. As with most genealogy, it is a work in progress. The census information is from Des Moines County, Iowa. I only list township in the table. I have included dwelling and family numbers because I have found them to be the easiest way to locate a family. - Joan Bachenberg Shurtliff

Chase to Mr. Fred Bachenberg of Lewiston, Neb. At exactly four o'clock Miss Mary Brown, niece of the bride, stepped to the piano and rendered "Blesst be the Tie," with variations in a very sweet and impressive manner. At the close of the prelude the young couple entered unaccompanied, and took their places at the altar. The altar, the arch above it and the walls around were profusely and tastily decorated with sprays, sumach leaves and golden rod. The sacred words which made them man and wife were spoken by Rev. Harry F. Huntington in the presence of sixty of the relatives and most intimate friends of the two families. The out-of-town guests were Mrs. A.E. Bachenberg, Omer Bachenberg, Emma Bachenberg, Charlie Bachenberg, Mr. and Mrs. W.M. Jose, all coming from Lewiston; Mr. and Mrs. George Bachenberg of Armour, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Klein of Steinauer, Prof. L. W. Chase and family and Prof. F.J. Chase of Lincoln, Mr. and Mrs. Adin Plumb and Mrs. Jane F. Dix and son Newton, the last four named coming from Massachusetts and Vermont in an automobile arriving only two hours before the wedding. The groom is the son of Mrs. A. E. Bachenberg and is a most worthy young man of excellent habits. The bride is the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F.W. Chase, and is a refined lady of many accomplishments. The high esteem in which this young couple is held is plainly seen by the many beautiful and useful gifts presented them. The couple left overland for Lincoln the next day and will be gone for a short honeymoon. They will assist in the care of the Chase farm later on. - Pawnee Republican."
