She came to this country with her parents in 1848, and settled near Hazel Green, Wis. On March 30th she was married to Henry Rister of the Town of Paris. To them were born nine children, Mary, Ida and William dying in infancy. She leaves to mourn her death, an aged husband, four daughters, and one son, namely, Mrs. George Reynolds of Georgetown, Wis., Mrs. Wm. Taylor and Mrs. Tobias Beckett of Platteville; Mrs. Edward Egan, who makes her home with her father, and John, residence near the Town of Paris. A daughter, Olive, Mrs. John Shinne, of North Dakota, died January 12, 1904 leaving a family of eight children, the youngest a babe of three months. A telegram called this aged mother to their home in N. Dakota, but when the mother had arrived there, the daughter was dead and buried, The Husband and some of the children were still confined to their beds, all having typhoid fever. The grandmother returned with three of the children. The following spring the father and four children came leaving the babe with a neighbor, where she still is. This family of seven was taken by the grandmother into her home, where she minstered to all their wants. Here was a labor of love and sacrifice for six long years, when the father remarried and took his family home. Mrs. Rister was loved by all who knew her. The example of her life will be a monument to her memory. She has gone from those she loved and has gained the reward promised to the good and faithful servant - "Enter into the joys of thy rest." Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also. There's a land far away, 'mid the stars we are told. Where they know not the sorrows of time. Farewell, dear mother-a last, a long, a sad farewell. Long and unbroken will thy slumber be.

  • Portrait of Erastus and Louisa (Spyker) Mercer Family.
  • Marjorie Ellen Mercer was christian.
  • Written by J. W. Ehrlich regarding Marjorie Mercer: "She was just past twenty and as femininely attractive as only a white uniform can make a woman when I first met her, this Marjorie who became my lifelong wife in a world and society where multiple marriage is a commonplace. I've never known a finer woman. I've never known one who knew more about love and loyalty.

    Along about my sixth month in San Francisco I had obtained another little extra job, and it was this that brought us together. On weekends I joined the staff at the Marine Hospital, a facility of the U.S. Public Health Service, and my function was to conduct a sort of inventory of the medical supplies and other properties in the pharmacy. Part of my wages were luncheon and dinner in the officers' dining room of the hospital. My appetite has always been small, and the dietitian soon became professionally aroused at how little damage I did to the trays of food that were sent out to me.

    She decided to interview this apparent nonenthusiast for her carefully planned menus. If I couldn't work up an appetite for the diet I could certainly do so for the dietitian. Marjorie Mercer was a pretty little Quaker girl from Frank Lloyd Wright's hometown, Spring Green, Wisconsin. And I was hooked.

    Marjorie was a little less sold. It wasn't easy to convince her that I was the great man whom she heard about almost continuously (from me) during the weeks that followed. At first she suffered from the misapprehension that I was merely a very busy, very glib yound man with very large plans.
    ...

    We went to numerous cake-and-lemonade orgies which were by courtesy of Marjorie or her girl friends at the hospital. We attended movies at the hospital, courtesy of the U.S. Public Health Service. We organized picnics on the shores of the little lake close to the hospital, and we went for long walks along the green cliffs above the ruggedly beautiful Golden Gate. Eventually my arguments (or perhaps my remarkable examples of thrift) mesmerized Marjorie, and one day I was able to ferryboat her across the bay to neighboring San Rafael for our wedding.

    My total capital, after paying for two boat fares and one marriage license plus the fee of the justice of the peace, consisted of three cart-wheel dollars, a fifty-cent piece, and two dimes. For the honeymoon there was a salt-water voyage - the return trip across the bay - and the wedding banquet was a bag of hot roasted peanuts shared on the promenade deck of the old and long-gone Northwestern Pacific ferryboat Ukiah as we watched the sun drop into the Pacific through the Golden Gate and the beam of the yellow from Mile Rock begin its nightly sweeping of the harbor. As soon as we landed in San Francisco we both reported to our respective jobs."11
  • She obtained US Social Security Card at California; last residence San Francisco, San Francisco, California.
  • Marjorie graduated from college and was a dietician for the U.S. Army during World War I.

    Jake Ehrlich was close friends with Nancy and Ronald Reagan. Jake's wife, Marjorie was very close friends with Nancy's mother.

The present deacons are: O. v. Davis, S. S. Davis and O. R. Jaquisb. The trustees are: S. J. Freeborn, O. V. Davis and C. A. Hatch.

  • Henry Hartwell Spyker and Sarah M. Zintz were married by Reverand Simon S. Spyker on 30 January 1884 at at the residence of Chester William Davis, Ithaca, Richland, Wisconsin; Seldom has the quiet stream of social events of our peaceful neighborhood been disturbed by so huge a wave as swept over us on the evening of January 30th, on the marriage of Mr. Henry Spyker and Miss Sarah Zintz, not more on account of the high social position of the contracting parties, than on account of the social and individual worth of each. Having been reared in each other's society from infancy, they form that rare thing under the sun, a happy union, with which no one can find fault and if kind wishes of friends would do it they would be surrounded by Heaven's choicest blessings.
    The ceremony was performed at the residence of Mr. C. W. Davis, at eight o'clock by Rev S. Spyker in a most solumn and impressive manner. The bride was arrayed in a brown silk made in a simple and becoming style. The groom, groomsman and bridesmaid were all elegantly and tastefully dressed. Miss Mattie Spyker served as bridesmaid and Mr. Clarence Inman, of Sauk County, as best man. Scarcely were the solumn ceremonies making them man and wife ended before the guests were agreeably surprised by a serenade from the Ithaca coronet band, and considering the time they have had for practice they did well. The boys were invited in and after the happy couple had received the congratulations of friends. All were invited to partake of one of the suppers which is a joy to behold, much more to eat. The tables fairly groaned under their load of fruits, confectionery and all manner of eatables. To say the host and hostess had done their best is to say it was grand, for "Chet" and his wife do nothing by halves. The festivities were kept up until a late hour, and continued the next morning by a reception at the groom's parents, Rev. and Mrs Spyker, where the guests were served to one of Mrs Spyker's best dinners, and anyone who has ever "broken bread" with them know it ws second to none. About sixty guests were present at both places. Taken all in all it was one of the most enjoyed and enjoyable events of a lifetime.

  • Mart was never married. He lived with his brother, Amos Jr., on the old homestead, settled near Spring Green, Wisconsin, by their father and mother.10
  • Martin H. Mercer witnessed the death of Amos Erastus Mercer on 24 May 1910 at Spring Green, Sauk, Wisconsin; Amos Mercer, a Pioneer of Spring Green, Died May 24. Died at his home in the town of Spring Green, May 24th, 1910 Amos Mercer. The subject of this sketch was born January 5th, 1821, at Redbank, Clarion county, Pennsylvania, and of a family of thirteen children he was the tenth. At the time of his death he was 89 years, 4 months and 19 days, and only one of the thirteen survived him, his brother Joseph. At the age of five years he removed with his parents to Ohio and settled near Columbus, where his father followed the trade of blacksmithing, and a few years later removed to Golconda county, Illinois. On December 7th, 1843, Mr. Mercer was married to Emaline Tanner. A notable indicent in connection with this is that the marriage license was issued by Judge Rhaum, father of the present Judge Green B. Rhaum of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Owing to hard times Mr. Mercer concluded to seek a home in the north west, and in June, 1947, with a team and light wagon, he took his wife and children and few household goods and traveled overland via Peoria and Galenda, Illinois, and Mineral Point, Wisconsin. He stopped at Mineral Point two or three weeks and engaged in lead mining, but failing to make a success of this occupation he left his family there and came north, striking the Wisconsin river at what was known in an early day as Leech's ferry, a short distance below Richland City. He crossed the river in a log canoe furnished him by Mr. Leech and went to the home of "Bob" and "Bill" McCloud, now known as the old Loomis farm, near the mouth of Bear creek, and bargained for eighty acres of land now owned by Andrew Harter. In 1852 he disposed of his farm, after making some improvements, to Elder Benton, and purchased the farm on which he resided for fifty-eight years. When Mr. Mercer came here only three men were residents - Dalby, on the D. E. Mead farm; Rodgers, on the farm where Vet Peck now lives, and Evan Jones, near where the village of Spring Green now stands. His post office was Franklin, Iowa county, now known as Highland. Deceased was the father of twelve children. One daughter died in infancy, and a son, William, was accidentally shot while hunting. Mrs. Mercer died June 23d, 1895, and he is survided by ten sons and daughters, eight of them residing in Spring Green: Erastus, Eliza Shafer, wife of Henry Shafer, M. H. Mercer, A. J. Mercer, Emaline, wife of Bradley Sherwood, Ellen, wife of Edward Sherwood, R. F. Mercer and Warren; Joseph of Tonapah, Nevada, and Matilda Crotchett, who resides with her husband at Gunemo, Kansas. When Mr. Mercer and family crossed the Wisconsin river at Old Helena at that early day nobody was there to greet them save Evan Jones, who lived near the river bank. They drove to the next house, that of Mr. Rodgers, on what is now knows as the Peck farm. Mr. Mercer then settled down to pioneer life and made a struggle against the many disadvantages of the new country. Here he worked early and late and many times thought himself fortunate when he was able to buy a few pounds of cornmeal to supply the needs of his family, yet he succeeded, and as stated above, on the farm where he died he toiled for fifty-eight years, raised his family and accumulated property, and in no instance was it ever said that he failed to conduct his business in an honorable and upright manner. He was one of nature's noblemen, and though his religious views were never fully known he was an honest man, which is the noblest work of the Almighty. The writer personally knew him for over fifty years, and is prepared to say that the poor and needy were never turned from his door, and the neighbors and friends gave testimony by meeting to pay him a last tribute of respect. The funeral service was in charge of Rev. A. H. Schoenfeld of Spring Green, on May 26th, and five sons and a grandson, as bearers, silently laid him to rest in the Spring Green cemetery beside the grave of his wife. The children desire to thank their neighbors and friends for their kindness in their hour of affliction.1,11
