Bruce A. Wetter was born in New Ulm, MN on December 31, 1930, the son of Otto and Hazel (Coomes) Wetter. He grew up on the family farm north of Lamberton. He attended grade school in Wanda and graduated from Lamberton High School in 1948. Upon graduation, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy and served until 1952. Bruce returned to Lamberton after his discharge, and lived in the community his entire life. On October 17, 1953, he married Arlene Arends. They had two children and were married for 63 years. For the last nearly 50 years they lived in the house that he designed and built for the family, spending evenings and weekends doing nearly all of the work himself. Bruce worked as a lineman for Interstate Power Company from 1952 until retiring in 1987. After his retirement he worked for Kluegel Funeral Home and then Sturm Funeral Home for many years, an occupation he very much enjoyed. Bruce was instrumental in the development of the Lamberton Community Center, overseeing its construction on a daily basis. He started nearly every day of his retirement enjoying a cup of coffee with his wife and reading the Wall Street Journal. Bruce was a talented and intelligent man with a wide variety of interests which he nurtured through the years. He was a gifted and accomplished woodworker, creating beautiful furniture and intricate turned bowls and vases. A love of nature and watching things grow were another passion. He had beautiful flower and vegetable gardens and enjoyed learning and experimenting with new and different varieties. Numerous species of trees that he cultivated filled his yard and "the park" across the street. The birds and squirrels that inhabited the trees were a source of enjoyment and he fed them regularly. Together Bruce and Arlene traveled to numerous flea markets, antique shops and auctions collecting pottery, crystal and antique tools. In his later years, Bruce found an interest in cooking and especially enjoyed experimenting with new recipes. Grilling and soups were his specialties.

Bruce is survived by his wife, Arlene; son, David (Michelle) of Mendon, NY; daughter Julie (Randy) Heller of Phoenix, AZ; grandchildren, Stacy (Travis) Downs, Molly (Ryan) Volenec, Joseph Heller and Jenna Heller; great-grandchildren, Maxwell and Vivian Volenec and Caroline Downs; and brother, Myrland. He was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Maurice, Merle, Duane, and Milo; and sisters, Zona Krinke and Donna Goolsbay.

Born in Schmeds house in Wunderthausen. Came to the US before her parents and other siblings on the ship "Johann Schmidt" out of Bremen, landing in New Orleans on June 1, 1857. She had nine children, of whom eight were alive in 1900. Unfortunately I have had difficulty tracing many of them.

Known as Ludwig. Apparently raised in Haase Haus in Wunderthausen. With his first cousin, J. Ludwig Riedesel, and his mother he traveled to New York on the ship Lesmona out of Bremen, debarking on June 24, 1844. Their destination was Crawford County, Ohio, where the cousins' aunt and uncle (the Gerhardts) lived. Family legend has it that he built a barn for someone in exchange for his passage. Exactly where he lived is uncertain. It is likely that he and his family lived outside the towns of Galion and Bucyrus. Just prior to his marriage, the 1850 Crawford County Census found him living in the household of a German-born wagonmaker, John Miller.

While living in Ohio, he received some theological tutelage from the Rev. Max Stern of the German Reformed Church in Galion. The Dürrs, the Riedesels, the Gerhardts and the Schneiders appear not to have been members of that congregation. Instead, they evidently met in homes and perhaps a rough meeting house for religious services. Reports differ on when he settled for good at Wheatland. The reported birth places of their children imply a move to Iowa between 1855-1857.

Their family scattered. Unlike many of the other Wunderthäuser, they had no "home place" (farm) to pass down to another generation.

Dürr was a carpenter, not a farmer, and lived in the town of Wheatland. He was a founder of St. Paul's Church in Wheatland and had served as a lay leader of worship services in Wheatland before a regular minister was available. Before the founding of St. Paul's in 1861, he is recorded as a founding member of a German Reformed congregation or community (Gemeinde) in 1857. He was an elder in the first Kirchenrat (Board) of St. Paul's church in 1861. He and Caroline are buried in St. Paul's Cemetery, but no marker exists.
