   Notes   Linked to 
1901 Three of Clara's younger children (boys) from her marriage to Henry Kemper died during the cholera epidemic in 1840s as well as Henry.
Clara may be of Indian heritage - Aunt Pearl per Mervel
This family folklore persisted until I was able to gather the source data showing that Clara was born in Germany. What probably started this rumor is the picture of Clara where she "looks" Indian. In my research I found that some of the women from Buer, Germany have similar facial shapes (thin, high cheekbones).

May have found something for you here it is:
FRANZ KAMPER
and
CLARA KUHLMANN
all their children were baptized at Saint Paul Ev. Lutheran Church
New Melle, Missouri
I will get a complete listing of the children to you, this will help in establishing their birth and christening dates.
Also I found:
WILHELM BREDENKAMP
and
MARIA KEMPER
married MAY 11, 1853
by a Ev. Lutheran Minister named CLAUS.

I will get you all this information, I was in a hurry today and only wrote down the names and dates.
The family folklore may have it's tale some what straight, the Kemper family could have suffered their losses during a cholera epidemic but it wasn't in the early 1840's. The time doesn't fit I strongly believe it was the epidemic of the early 50's.

If this is your ancestors dismiss the American Indian theory on Miss Clara, I have KUHLMANN in my line also and they were pure Prussian(German). I am positive that the marriage that took place in 1853 is that of your FREDERICK WILLIAM and CLARA M. KEMPER, I am sure you know WILHELM is German for William and Maria is correct for Mary. Like most Germans they had several first names and they picked the one they liked. For example Clara, she might have been baptized CAROLINE CLARA MARIA, the three names more than likely came from the godmother and her name was CAROLINE CLARA was her given name and MARIA was her baptismal name. It was not unusual for all the females in the family to bear the name MARY(Maria). And KAMPER/KEMPER the Minister wrote it as he thought it sounded to him. I have a surname in my Ancestry of HEI, I have found it Hay, Hey, Ahe.
Also don't be surprised and I hope you are that the probate record of 1843 maybe that of Henry Kemper's father. Clara would have been in her 30's when she married FREDERICK BREDENKAMP, I figured her first marriage took place about 1841-42 she was about 18 maybe 20 so her birth was in the 1820's. I am positive she was not widowed long not with small children. At the time of our Ancestors there was a saying "A husband or wife would walk in church behind their spouse's casket and walk out with a dozen proposals or engaged to be married." One of my Ancestors was widowed in January 1850 and in Aug. 1850 he was married to a woman who was widowed in July of 1850.

Hope I gave you more help and I will get and copy the baptismal records and marriage record for you.
Take care and hope to see you on the screen soon.

Trinity German Evangelical Lutheran Church
Bishop Martin Stephan and 700 Lutherans arrived via steamboats in 1839. Stephan was expelled, and Otto Hermann Walther was the pastor of the congregation that worshiped in Christ Episcopal Church and which later became Trinity Church, the first German Lutheran church in St. Louis. His brother, Ferdinand Wilhelm Walther, succeeded him upon his death, and for 48 years was the dominant figure in the Lutheran movement. In 1842 they occupied a chapel on Lombard between 3rd and 4th. They relocated at 8th and Lafayette in 1865. The 1896 tornado destroy the church built in 1865, and reconstruction began immediately. Located at 1805 S. 8th Street, 63104)

The steamboat era began in Saint Louis on July 27, 1817, with the arrival of the "Zebulon M. Pike." Rapids north of the city made Saint Louis the northernmost navigable port for many large boats, and Pike and her sisters soon transformed St. Louis into a bustling boomtown, commercial center, and inland port. By the 1850s, Saint Louis had become the largest U.S. city west of Pittsburgh, and the second largest port in the country, with a commercial tonnage exceeded only by New York.

The record which appears responsible for the incorrect identification of Arthur's wife is an agreement, dated 6 June 1643, by John Walker, "sonn in law of Arthur Howland," to appear before the next General Court. But John's marriage to Lydia Reed did not take place until eleven years later. Clearly then, this marriage had no connection with his being a "son-in-law" of Arthur Howland and so there is no basis for the contention that Arthur's wife Margaret was the mother of John Walker's wife, Lydia Reed, and therefore a Widow Reed.
Then why was John Walker called Arthur Howland's son-in-law? John had not married one of Arthur's daughters, for Arthur's will plainly speaks of "my wifes grandchild Mary Walker." However the term son-in-law had a broader meaning in the severnteenth century than given it today, and then meant any son by law including a step-son. The fact that John Walker was a step-son of Arthur Howland is revealed in a deed dated 19 May 1663:
Arthur Howland Senir of the towne of Marshfeild ... in consideration of moneyes payed for my use in old England by my wife Margarett Howland to the sume of seaventeen pounds fourteen shillings and ten pence which said sume was given by the above said Margarett in the time of her widdowhood unto her son John Walker ...
