Surnames: Meyer, Bennett, Stevens
I saw your listing for Menke in the Calumet Co WI Query Forum and was struck by the similarity of the name of your great-aunt with that of my husband's ancestor. My husband, Lew's grandfather was Louis Fredrick Charles Meyer, b 2 Mar 1887 in Neenah, Winnebago, WI. His mother was Mathilda Meyer, b 16 Sep 1871 in Harrison, Calumet WI.

She had a sister Wilemina Louise Meyer, b 24 May 1879 probably in the same city. They also called her Mina; Minerva; her first husband was Bennett (he died in the 1906 San Francisco earthquake); I don't know the name of the second husband, but he committed suicide in Denver CO; the third husband was Stevens. She had no children.

The other brothers and sisters were: Charles, Anna John, Frederick, William, Edward, August and Augusta. Their parents were John (b about 1833, Prussia) & Augusta Meyer (b about 1835, probably also in Prussia). That's as far back as we have any information about the family.
