Memo1861Fred Bremer is a mystery in some ways. When we started our quest all we knew was that family lore told us that he came to America with his father and brother, fought in the Civil War, and was never heard from again -- although it was believed that he did not die in the Civil War. Since then we have found his birth and baptismal records (see above). We also found that his brother, Henry, fought in the Civil War in Company B, 4th Missouri Calvary between 1862 and 1865. We also found, with the help of Howard Piepenbrink, that there was a Fred (age 23) and Henry Bremer (age 20) from Prussia in the 1860 census in Richardson Co, NE (the very SE tip of Nebraska) Henry enlisted in the Civil War at Forest City, MO (just a few miles away), so we are pretty sure we have the right Fred and Henry Bremer. Henry mustered in on 25 Feb, 1862 in Forest City, MO for 3 years, and mustered out on 22 Mar 1865 at Warrensburg, MO.
With that we looked for a Fred Bremer in the same outfit, and did find a Fred Bremer that served in Company C of the 5th Missouri Calvary and Company B of the 4th Missouri Calvary from 25 Sep 1861 to 18 Oct 1864. The age at enlistment was recorded as 32 (should have been 23), and a note in the records indicated that he had deserted in 1861.
Note: We visited the local courthouse and reviewed the records that were available. A fire in the courthouse destroyed most of the records during the time frame of interest. Not enough information to prove anything.5
Militaryfrom 1862 to 1865Military: Fridrich (Fred) Heinrich Ernst Bremer served in Union Army during the American Civil War and is believed to have died during the war from 1862 to 1865.5
