The Steinhauer Family



 According to Mrs. Esther Aloi at one time there were three people from the Steinhauer family living in Clermont. John was a prominent person in the Clermont area. He was married to the former Augusta Weidel.  Both were descendents of families from the early settlement of Teutonia. John was active in the community by serving as Justice of Peace, was a member of the International Order of Odd Fellows, and was very active in the Methodist Church . A photo of John and also a picture of John with Augusta can be seen here.


In addition to large land holdings John and Augusta owned the house just west of the factory. This house was often called the Superintendent's house because the superintendent for Clermont Clay Products Company and his family usually lived in this house. The following superintendents lived there: John Clay, W. E. Ringrose, and H. K. Leighow. After Kaul Clay Products Company took over the factory the house was occupied by Iroe Dibler and his family. This photo shows the house.

Mrs. Aloi informed me that John Steinhauer's sister was Lena Meisel and she owned the first house west of John's house. Later John and Lily Anderson owned this house.

According to Mrs. Aloi John's brother Louis Steinhauer owned the house where she lives now. She said that Ralph Aloi was renting the house from Louis who had moved to Farmers Valley . In 1929 she and her husband John Aloi went with Ralph and Angelina Aloi to Farmers Valley to buy the house from Louis. Here is a photo of the house.

While Ralph and his wife lived they lived on one side of the house and John and Esther and their family lived in the other half. After the death of the older couple the house was converted to a one family home. In 2004 Mrs. Aloi is still living but is in a nursing home in St Marys where her two sons live.
