Winterer Family Correspondence, 1884-1890
[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description: This collection consists of a series of letters sent primarily to Edward Winterer from his two brothers, William and Herman. There are 21 letters with 97 pages of correspondence. Most of the letters document William’s illness and the majority of the early letters (September 1884-March 1886) are written by him. William died in the summer of 1886 while residing in Tombstone, Arizona Territory. The remainder of the letters are primarily from Herman to Edward with four notable exceptions: two letters to Edward from friends, the letter dated May 29, 1886 (from William’s doctor in Yuma, A.T., J.L. Shibley, to Herman, discussing William’s health) and the letter dated September 9, 1886 (from J.H. Tippett to Herman, giving details of William’s final days).
