The Maier home - north of Atwater, Minnesota

When Amelia FÖRSTER Ryff became a young widow with four small children, she married German born Wilhelm (William) Maier, a young Civil War veteran. She had 10 more children by William and then was left a widow again. You can see her first four children by clicking on RYFF - Jacob Ryff was her first husband.


We were able to visit Amelia's farm home at Atwater, Minnesota in 1996. Someone is still living in the old home where she lived when she and William had their ten children and where she lived until her death in 1914. She and William are buried at the Lutheran Church cemetery about two miles from their home.


We have a lot of charts, pictures and other information about this family - please contact us if you think you are related.


Amelia, William and some of their children
are buried in the graveyard at this beautiful church.
