Notes:
Born in Steinhude Nr. 138. Baptized as Wilhelm Hermann Brethauer, later spelled as W.H. Bredthauer. Master baker in Nr. 138 Steinhude. A short, jolly fellow, he met his wife at a dance, perhaps on Wilhelmstein, the island in the Steinhuder Meer. He came to the US on the ship Fulda (of the Norddeutsche Lloyd line), landing in New York on 16 June 1883, with his wife and four children. He came to be known as William Bredthauer. They first settled on Turtle Creek, near Elyria, Nebraska. Later the family moved to a farm just south of the Chalk Hills at Scotia Nebraska, with land in sections 21, 22, and 28. After they moved to Scotia, his son, William, lived and farmed there. The farm is presently (1982) occupied by Daryl Holt, a great-grandson. The three younger children were born in Nebraska. The original home burned down and was replaced. He opened the Bredthauer Department Store at 110 South Main in Scotia, later operated by sons Dick and Henry, then by Dick alone. In the 1910 census he is listed as a retired farmer. In 1911, he owned land in sections 21, 22, and 28 in Greeley County. He was a member of the German Lutheran Church Missouri Synod in Scotia.
