Wilhemina Buermeyer (Thompson)

Barbara Andrews of California writes: "Wilhelmina died when Louisa, the youngest was about 18 months old. John (Thompson) remarried to my ancestor, Mary Dunlop, and had a number of additional children (mine was Samuel Frost Thompson, the first of the "second batch." Louisa took care of her father in his later years."

"Louisa had a son named *Frederick and a daughter named Ethel. She was somewhere in NE US a few years ago, in her 90's, and in a nursing home-- but very alert. She had two sons. Some one in the family tried to talk to her about her grandmother and John Thompson - but her memories were not pleasant she did not want to answer any questions. If we ever find her sons, perhaps they will give us bits of information.

"John Thompson was supposed to have been taken under the wing of someone at the docks and then married the daughter. But we thought that person was also a glass maker. So it would not have been Buermeyer. Since John named my grandfather Samuel Frost Thompson, that may have been the glass maker. Perhaps Buermeyer (Ernst Heirich Buermeyer, 1813-1886) gave him his first job - John was 14 when he arrived."

The following information was researched and compiled by George Buermeyer.
