Armbruster, Constantine

Constantine Armbruster
b: 19 JUN 1833
d: 29 DEC 1912
Constantine is the #2 child of Anton & Maria Hund Armbruster.

I was told by Helen Kern that Constantine arrived at the same time
that Sigmund did (1865), but according to information compiled by a
Constantine descendant, Lois Armbruster, he arrived in 1862. And
since he was married in Riverside Iowa in 1862, it makes sense.
According to Lois, he got on a train in New York heading for Iowa
City, Iowa. When they got there and he got off the train, there was
nothing there so figuring he had gotten off at the wrong place, he got
back on the train. At the next stop the conductor informed him he
should have gotten off back at Iowa City, so they put him and his nap
sack on a return train. He settled in Riverside, Iowa.
Notes taken from the 50th Anniversary of the Gehlsen article.
Constantine established his home on a farm North of Riverside, Iowa,which is now resided by his grandson, Paul Armbruster, son of FrankArmbruster.
Constantine and Anna celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary in1912. Their first home was a log house, out in the field west of thepresent brick house, a two room house which was enlarged as the familygrew.
