    • Michael Matter will long be honored in Waltham township for the part he had in the upbuilding of the St. Michael German Lutheran church.
      The first services of this congregation were held in his home, and at the organization of the church in 1873 he gave sixty acres of land for the church, school, cemetery, etc.
      Michael Matter was born October 19, 1798, in Luchentin, Germany, came to America in 1841, located in Wisconsin, and there lived until 1869, when he brought his wife, whose maiden name was Friderike Zulke, to Mower county, where he purchased eighty acres in section 20, Waltham township, from his son, Michael F., who came the same year.
      He died January 19, 1880, in Milwaukee, Wis., and his corpse was brought to Waltham, Minn., for burial at the side of his wife, who died October 18, 1872.
