100 DIAMOND JUBILEE

Priests from St. Boniface Parish.



This list includes the names of such priests only who w
at one time members of this parish. Some of them, bef<
their ordination, had affiliated themselves with other cong
gations and hence it is that we find them mentioned on otl
lists and in other company. Willing to share her title in
such cases with their mother of adoption, St. Boniface s
claims them as her sons by prior right, and hence we subi
the following list of priests from this parish, following in
order in which they were raised to the priesthood:

1. Rev. Henry Kalmer, Born Dec. 4th, 1834 at Bowinl
Hanover; came to Quincy in 1850; received Holy Ord

pelled him to seek the milder climate of California, his present
home.

10. Rev. Aug. Tolton, first negro priest in the United
States, was born April 1st, 1854 in Bush Creek, Rails Co., Mo., of
slave parents, his father having been baptized by Father Lefevre
and given the name of Peter Paul. He came to Quincy with his
mother when only 7 years of age and after working for several
years in a tobacco factory, he attended St. Boniface School,
where he learned to speak the German language. Later he went
to St. Peter's School, where Father McGirr first detected the
marks of a latent vocation to the priesthood. Received his first
education in the classics from the local priests, Fathers Weg-
mann, Reinhart, Ostrop, Francis Albers, O. F. M., and Engel-
bert Gey, O. F. M. ; until, through the mediation of Father
Michael Richardt, O. F. M., he was enabled, in 1880, to go to
Rome and complete his studies at the College of the Propaganda,
where he was ordained in the Church of the Lateran on April
24th, 1886, by Cardinal Parochi. He was assigned at once to
take charge of the colored population of Quincy, amongst whom
he labored with heroic zeal, until Nov. 28th, 1889, when he took
up his duties in Chicago, holding services at first in St. Mary's
Church, until the gift of $10,000 from Mrs. Anne O'Neill enabled
him to build a church of his own, which he dedicated to St.
Monica. Of this church he was still in charge when he died July
9th, 1897, in consequence of a sunstroke.

11. Rev. John Bernard Schlotmann, was born Aug. 7th,
1860, in the village of Hausstette, Oldenburg; received private
instruction till the age of 17, after which he spent three years at
college in Vechta. Came to Quincy Oct. 1st, 1880, where he
lived with his uncle, the late Bernard Schlotmann, on Jersey
street, and was an active member of St. Boniface Parish and St.
Joseph Young Men's Society. After working a year at the paper
mill, he continued his studies at St. Francis College and later at
St. Meinrad's, Indiana, where he was raised to the priesthood
June 9th, 1887. On the 12th of June he celebrated his First Mass
at St. Boniface, and is now pastor of St. Boniface Church at

ST. BONIFACE CONGREGATION 103

trade, working four years for Henry Schenk. He then continued
his studies at the local St. Francis College and St. Meinrad's, In-
diana, where he was ordained June 13th, 1895. His First Mass

native of Quincy, was born April 15th, 1866. After graduating
from the parish school, he took a course of pharmacy at Wash-
ington, D. C., and received his degrees in 1886. After working
for about two years in this profession he began his studies for
the priesthood, going abroad to Innsbruck, Austria, where he
was ordained to the priesthood, June 26th, 1896. His First Mass
was celebrated at St. Boniface Church, on Sept. 13th, after which
he was appointed assistant and later pastor at the cathedral of
Belleville. After a few .years of very successful work in this ca-
pacity, his health began to fail and he left for Gabriels, New
York, in the hope that the invigorating climate of the Adiron-
dacks would restore him ; but his condition continued to grow
worse until on Dec. 20th, 1901, he passed to his eternal reward,
sincerely mourned by a host of friends and admirers.

14. Rev. William Schemer, son of William Schemer, Sr.,
was born in Quincy, April 3rd, 1876, and baptized at St. Boniface
Church. Deprived of both of his parents when he was only three
months old, he was placed in charge of the Sisters of St. Aloy-
sius Orphan Home, from where he was afterwards sent to St.
Francis College. He continued his studies at St. Meinrad,
Indiana, and at St. Cloud, Minn., where he was ordained priest,
June loth, 1902. He brought his First Offering to God, on June
22, at St. Boniface Church and is now located at West Union,
Minn., in the diocese of St. Cloud, where he is pastor of
St. Alexis Church.

15. Rev. Solanus (Paul) Rooney, son of the late eminent
physician and philanthropist, Dr. Michael Rooney, was born
Sept. 17th, 1877, received his first education at St. Boniface
School, where formerly his father had volunteered his services
as teacher; after which he made a brilliant course of studies at
the local St. Francis College, the St. Louis University and at
Harvard. Was received into the Franciscan Order, June 24th,



104 DIAMOND JUBILEE



1899, and elevated to the priesthood, June 27, 1903. Since then
he labored most zealously amongst the Mexicans and Pima
Indians at Phoenix, Arizona, until declining health compelled
him to seek the milder climate of Santa Barbara, Cal., where
however he died already, May 24th, 1906, in consequence of pul-
monary hemorrhage.

16. Rev. Herman Joseph Tenk, son of the late John
Herman Tenk of this city, was born Oct. 27th, 1874. He was
educated at St. Francis College, being a graduate in the class of
1894. In Aug., 1895, he went abroad to continue his studies in
Rome, where he became a member of the Jesuit Order. Return-
ing to this country in the following year, he attended the St.
Louis University, where he received Holy Orders in 1909. and
celebrated his First Mass on August 28th. For several years
that followed, he was professor at the Jesuit Universities, at St
Louis and Cincinnati, until in the summer of 1911, he was sent tc
the missionary fields of Central America, there to labor amongst
the Indians.
