I am looking for information about McDERMEITs in Wadena and Becker counties. Specifically I am interested in the Charley Edward McDERMEIT family. Charley was born 1 April 1879 in Iowa to Thomas McDERMEIT and Clista Ellen CLATTERBUCK. Charley was married to Irene Altha, daughter of Charles H. and Harriet Eliza (COLBURN) NOBLE. Charley died 14 May 1954 in Blueberry Twp, Wadena County and is buried in Wadena Cemetery. Irene Altha died 11 Dec 1956 in Hubbard County.
Charley and Irene had the following children:
Vern E. McDERMEIT (14 Jul 1907 - Feb 1975)
Vera Marie McDERMEIT (14 Jul 1908 - 23 Jun 1982)
Clifford Harold McDERMEIT (6 Dec 1912 -16 Jun 1952)
Guy Levi McDERMEIT (b. Abt 1915-)
Hattie Viola McDERMEIT (20 Jan 1917 -29 Oct 1957)
Thomas G. McDERMEIT (16 Nov 1918 -29 Aug 1999)
Idella McDERMEIT (b. Abt. 1920)
Ethel McDERMEIT (b. Abt. 1924-)
Caroline McDERMEIT (b. Abt. 1926-)
Charles E McDERMEIT (b. Abt. 1928-)
Alymer C McDERMEIT (b. Abt. 1929-)
I noticed that the VFW Post in Menahga is named Guy L. McDermeit Post #6206. Can someone provide information about Guy and his association to the VFW Post?
Any help with the McDERMEITs would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
