From History of Stearns County, 1915, pg 927


John Richter and his wife, the parents of Gerhard Richter, came to St. Cloud in 1866, and spent the remainder of their days on a farm on the St. Augusta road, south of St. Cloud. They had seven children: Catherine (deceased), Barbara, Catherine, Elizabeth, Bernard and Mary.

All of the Richter children were born in Prussia.

Johann and Elisabeth are buried in the cemetery behind "St. Mary Help of Christians" Catholic Church at St. Augusta, Minnesota. So is their son, Bernard (1859-1928), and his wife Margaret (1867-1947).
