I have been searching just a short time for August Dietrich and Wilhelmina Bruss. This is what I have found.

Part 11 | History of Outagamie County, Wisconsin. Thomas Henry Ryan. Part 13 | Part 13
ALBERT DIETRICH, who was born in Outagamie county, Wisconsin, August 29, 1873, is now one of the well known agriculturists of Black Creek township, being the owner of 160 acres of valuable farming land on sections 22 and 23. His parents, August and Wilhelmina (Bruss) Dietrich, were natives of Germany who came to the United States about 1860 and settled first in the city of Milwaukee and later moved to Freedom, Outagamie county. Mr. Dietrich bought land and engaged in farming, living on this property until 1882, when he sold out and bought 120 acres in Black Creek township where Mr. and Mrs. Dietrich now make their home, he being seventy-nine years old and she sixty-four. Of their ten children, Albert was the next to the oldest. At the age of seventeen years he commenced working for wages on a near-by farm, and he so continued until 1900, by which time he had accumulated enough to purchase his present farm, a fertile tract of 160 acres on sections 22 and 23. He is engaged in general farming and stockraising, and ships hogs, cattle, grain and dairy products to the markets, and for five years has served as road commissioner. He and Mrs. Dietrich are members of St. John's Evangelical Church of Black Creek.

In 1900 Mr. Dietrich was married to Miss Anna Bartman, who was born February 18, 1878, the eldest of the children of Ferdinand and Minnie (Schmidt) Bartman. Mr. Bartman was born in Germany, April 2, 1853. Mrs. Bartman was born in Milwaukee, November 30, 1859, and died 1882. About two years later Mr. Bartman married Marie Zocholl, then lived on his farm until 1900. He then purchased a hotel where he and family are now living in the villaege of Black Creek, Wisconsin. Two children have been born to Mr. and Mrs. Dietrich, namely: Lora, born June 12, 1902, and Lillian, born October 5, 1904.

I all so have located Wilhelmina Bruss obit.
