  • Notes 
    • Cholera Pandemic in Erckartswiller.

      A pandemic of cholera went through France around 1832-33-34-35-? The records seem to indicate a number of people dying during that time, especially young people. Jean Pierre's half-brother, Georges, lost 4 children plus his second wife during this time. In all, his 6 children and 2 wives died around this time. Georges later visited Jean Pierre in Allen County. Georges stayed with my Great-grandmother Catharina Schlemmer Jackemeyer in the home on Seiler Road that she and her husband, Conrad Jackemeyer, built. pilaukikuchi originally shared this

      In 1841, the first election was held in Monroe Twp. They were voting on the Justice of the Peace. Only thirteen men voted. Peter?s vote was challenged, for he was a native of Germany. The vote was a tie. After much dispute, Peter went home and returned with the legal proof of his right to vote. His vote broke the tie. Noah Clem was the first Justice of the Peace for Monroe Twp.



      Written by Dolly Kikuchi-Jackemeyer-Schlemmer. Jean PIERRE Schlemmer was born on 14 Jan 1795, as his age is given in his children's birth records. He was born in the village Erckartswiller in the mountains of what is now southeast France. When Pierre was born the area was under German control, thus the mixture of French and German records. In 1836 the population of Erckartswiller was 327; in 2005 it was 212. In 2009 I visited the village with my daughter Kristina. Pierre's name must have been Johannes Peter Schlemmer in German, as it is Jean Pierre Schlemmer in French. Pierre signed his name as Johannas Schlemmer in the church records from Erckartsweiler. Peter Schlemmer and his family came to America from Germany in 1835. The Schlemmer family first settled in Stark Co., Ohio, where they stayed until 1839 when they moved to Section 21, Monroe Twp., Allen Co., IN. The property is at the corner of Lortie and Hoagland Roads. In 1841, the first election was held in Monroe Twp. They were voting on a Justice of the Peace. Only thirteen men voted. Peter's vote was challenged, for he was a native of Germany. The vote was a tie. After much dispute, Peter went home and returned with the legal proof of his right to vote. His vote broke the tie. Noah Clem was the first Justice of the Peace for Monroe Twp. In the1850 census, age 60, Pierre was living with John 18 (born in Erckartswiller), Katharina 16 (born in Ohio) and Christopher, 4 (born in IN). Note: Christopher is Peter's grandson, son of Peter's daughter Sophia Schlemmer. Peter and his wife Katharina Barbara, nee Saling, are buried on their farm, now known as the Schlemmer Cemetery. It is on the corner of Hoagland and Lortie Roads, just outside of Monroeville, IN. It is south of Monroeville and very close to Ohio. It stands next to the one room, brick Monroe Township schoolhouse, District No. 7. Its cornerstone reads 1882. Lying between the school and the house is the Schlemmer family cemetery.

      Re: SCHLEMMERS in France/Germany

      A researcher checked both volumes of The Alsace Emigration books and sent me following information: "In Vol. 1 I found: Schlemmer, Pierre, father of 8, born Erckartswiller, emigrated 1/1/1828 and Schlemmer, Marguerithe, born Eckartswiller, emigrated 1/1/1828. Note that the date 1/1/1828 means that the exact date wasn't known.The children are not listed.

      Note from Dolly: Marguerithe was Mary Margaret Schlemmer, Pierre's younger sister. She was born in 1807 in Erkartswiller and died between 1870-1880 in Madison, St. Joseph, IN. She married Cretien Helmlinger. Cretien was baptismal sponsor for Pierre's daughter Sophie (born 1830 in Alsace-Lorraine, died in 1897 in Cape Girardo, Missouri). Her married name was Frederich.
