Fannie Weinert 1853-1922

Fannie Weinert came to Nebraska when she was six years of age with her parents Augustus and Fredericka Weinert. Family sources recorded her birth on May 15th in 1853 in Buffalo, New York. The 1860 census verifies this. Her history recalls the fact that there were still Indians in the territory and that they often "frightened her." However, they gave her strings of beads so one can assume they were "friendly" in nature!

In 1876 at 23 years of age she married Frederick Scholl, who was also born in New York and came to Arago community at age 17 in 1866. Several children were born to this union, some who were stricken with tuberculosis. A younger sister of Fannie (Minnie) had moved west some years earlier so the Scholl's made plans to do the same. Around 1908 Fred and Fannie sold the farm (600 acres or one square mile) for $40,000 and around 1909 they moved to Oregon. Children Emma, Laura, George and August preceded their parents in the move and lived with their Aunt Minnie in her boarding house pending the arrival of the rest of the family. Elizabeth (Lizzie) married Ben Apel of the Falls City area and remained there for some time.  Fred Scholl build many houses in the Portland area with the help of his sons. It is believed that the family became members of the Mt. Tabor Evangelical Church (5441 SE Belmont St. Portland, OR 97215) in the southeast part of Portland and were faithful in their attendance.

Fannie passed away from breast cancer in Portland in 1822 on her wedding anniversary 1 June and Fred died 7 years later in 1929. Both are buried in the Rose City Cemetery on Fremont Street, with daughter, Edna. 

Mrs. Fannie Weinert was born  in Buffalo, N.Y., 15 May 1853. Her Christian life of nearly half a century was one of deep devotion to her Lord and of loyalty to the church. In 1876 she was joined in marriage to Fred Scholl by whom she is survived, as also by 2 daughters (One the wife of Rev. E. G. Hornschuch), 3 sons and 8 grandchildren. On June 1 1922, at Portland, Ore., she answered the call to her eternal home. revs. H. Schuknecht and F. B. Culver assisted in the funeral service. by Ezra Maurer, Reverend
