Many early German residents of the Bremen area were members of the German Evangelical Association (missionaries started coming through the area in the 1840s), which published obituaries for deceased members. You can search for an obituary on the Allen County Public Library website (http://www.genealogycenter.info/search_evanmessenger.php
) and then request a copy of it from them for a small fee. I've ordered several and found them to be usually very detailed. I saw that they had one for Ulrich Weiss and Jacob and Anna Berger Beyler among others. Anna was the sister of my ancestor, John W. Berger.
