  • Notes 
    • These Local Superintendents and their successors in office, who administered and directed the educational affairs of this county from 1853 to 1871, when the office was abolished, have not, in the opinion of the writer, received from the public the credit for their work to which they were entitled. They were all educated, broad-minded, unselfish men, ever ready and willing to assist and advise the teacher and explain the almost unexplainable school law to the trustees. The obstacles which they were continually encountering, in the performance of their duties, were many and difficult.

      In this connection special mention is due Rev. James Sims Local Superintendent for Wellesley for twelve years and chairman of the Board of Public Instruction for eight Messrs. Robert Brydon, Otto Klotz, Henry Liersch, James Colquhoun, Rev. Duncan McRuer, Rev. Geo. Cuthbertson, Rev. James Boyd, Henry F. J. Jackson and Isaac L. Bowman.

      ________________________

      In March of 1851, the name of "Der Deutschen Evangelishe Lutherische Emmanuels Gemeinde" was used, which translated word for word means, "The German Evangelical Lutheran Emmanuel's Congregation". For many years after, the congregation's name was misspelled "Immanuel's" or mistakenly known as "St. Emmanuel's" or "St. Immanuel's Church". Or was it not misspelled? If you take into consideration that Rev. Immanuel Wurster was our pastor and president as the church was being built, it is understandable why it was referred to as "Immanuel's Congregation". Subscriptions to financing and materials of the new church were now accepted, and the construction began in June of that year.

      The main contributors were: Nicolaus Busch, Christoph Seeger, Peter Wilker, Johannes Koch Sr., Johannes Koch Jr., Ludwig Zöger, Nicolaus Klein, Heinrich Liersch, Michael Karrer, W. Schrönan, Conrad Siebert, Abel Müller, Jacob Kollmann, Johannes Lippert, Adam Seyler and Johannes Bauer.
