Anna Drumm Werthmann and Kathryn Braunschlager Bieble

Anna Drumm Werthmann and Kathryn Braunschlager Bieble

Anna Drumm Werthmann is on the right, pictured with her aunt, Kathryn Braunschlager (possibly Braunswager). Anna was married to John Werthmann, who immigrated here in 1892. He was a Laborer at Fry's Glass Company and set up the furnace for Fry's. Anna immigrated in 1882. Kathryn was married to Anna's uncle, John Bieble. The 1910 Thirteenth Census of the United States lists John Werthmann and Annie Drumm Werthmann as residents of Rochester Borough, Beaver County, PA. Annie and John were both born in Germany, as were their parents. The census was enumerated on April 20, 1910. John Werthmann was 43. Annie was 35. They were married 16 years at the time. Their children were all born in Pennsylvania: John, 15, was a Gatherer at Fry's. Mary T., 14

They had two other children, Chuck and Helen, born after 1910. Chuck died in his late 20s from an accidental gun shot in a barroom. Apparently, they thought it was a play gun when it went off and ended his life. Chuck had planned to marry Gerry Skillinger, but it never happened.
