Jerome Henry Reider & Fredericka Bühler Family


This page is devoted to all of the documents and records collected for the Jerome Henry Reider family. There are few pictures of Jerome and only 2 presumed pictures of Fredericka. Jerome was the first of the Reiders of this line born in America. He was born in Scranton, Pennsylvania in 1857 which was 2 years after his parents had left Germany for America.


The family returned to Germany during the American Civil War so Jerome's sister Josephine was bornin Schramberg. They returned to America in 1866 and settled in Paterson, NJ. Jerome became a barber who later met and married a German immigrant named Fredericka Bühler. They had a total of 9 children.


Fredericka's father, Anton, moved from New Jersey to Los Angeles, Californio after she was married in 1883. When he died in 1909, his estate went to Fredericka so the family moved to Los Angeles and lived in his new house on Raymond Street. Unfortunately Fredericka died of kidney disease soon after. The family also suffered several deaths due to consumption (Tuberculosis). It was contagious and poorly understood at the time. Jerome, his father, mother, sister and three of his daughters all died of TB.
