  • MEISTER
    Parents: Franz and Anna (Pines) Meister and descendants
    Franz and Anna (Pines) Meister were some of the first pioneers to Rost in 1870. They brought their 2 children, August and Mathilda, building the first sod house in Rost. Regular Sunday devotions were held in their home, with other families joining them. Franz called the first Lutheran minister to Rost, thus founding the Rost church. Anna died in 1904 and Franz died in 1908.

    August Meister (son of Franz and Anna) and wife Ottile (Milbrath), had several children interred at this St. Pauls cemetery. They are: Arthur, Alma, Anna, Ruth, Martin, Alice, Viola.

    Mathilda Meister married Ferdinand Milbrath (both interred in this cemetery) and they became the parents of 3 sons and 2 daughters. Children were Edward, Theodore, Reinhold George "RG", Bertha (Herman Kuhlmann) and Hermina Hulda (Alvin Glaser).
    Arthur and wife, Ida (Meyer) are also interred at this cemetery, as well as her parents, Rev. Arnold and Louise Meyer.

    Ed died in 1943 at age 39. Helen remarried Lawrence Mortenson.
    Helen passed away in 1959 at age 49. She was a sister to Carl, Harold and Rudolph/Rudy Wendel,
    (Harold and Rudy also interred here, Carl by Round Lake). I also learned in Sep 2009 that a infant stillborn daughter is possibly also buried here though there is no headstone.
