Pfeiffer descendent tree down to Henry1830, of Cedar.Falls, Iowa.

NOTE:  The 'skeletal' descendent tree pasted below was posted from Pfeiffer genealogy generated by a 1930-40's secretary of Gustavus1872 'Uncle Gus' Pfeiffer, son of Henry1830 of Iowa. The tree takes this specific Pfeiffer line up to the time of the immigration to America of Henry1830 Pfeiffer and a couple of his brothers in the early 1850's.  The tree was written in German plus in a form difficult to follow, thus is a best guess at the time of posted.  No connection to this tree could be found on Ancestry or related sites, as of the time last working on the material, bz/Sept2018.  The Henry1830 family tree is posted following Uncle Gus's tree.

Notes on lager beer and Iowa prohibition movement.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brewing
Brewing is the production of beer by steeping a starch source (commonly cereal grains, the most popular of which is barley) in water and fermenting the resulting sweet liquid with yeast. It may be done in a brewery by a commercial brewer, at home by a homebrewer, or by a variety of traditional methods such as communally by the indigenous peoples in Brazil when making cauim. Brewing has taken place since around the 6th millennium BC, and archaeological evidence suggests that emerging civilizations including ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia brewed beer. Since the nineteenth century the brewing industry has been part of most western economies.
The basic ingredients of beer are water and a fermentable starch source such as malted barley. Most beer is fermented with a brewer's yeast and flavoured with hops.Less widely used starch sources include milletsorghum and cassava. Secondary sources (adjuncts), such as maize (corn), rice, or sugar, may also be used, sometimes to reduce cost, or to add a feature, such as adding wheat to aid in retaining the foamy head of the beer. The proportion of each starch source in a beer recipe is collectively called the grain bill.
Steps in the brewing process include maltingmillingmashinglauteringboilingfermentingconditioningfiltering, and packaging. There are three main fermentation methods, warmcool and spontaneous. Fermentation may take place in an open or closed fermenting vessel; a secondary fermentation may also occur in the cask or bottle. There are several additional brewing methods, such as barrel aging, double dropping, and Yorkshire Square.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lager
...While cold storage of beer, "lagering", in caves for example, was a common practice throughout the medieval period, bottom-fermenting yeast seems to have emerged as a hybridization in the early fifteenth century.
...In
the summer months. To further protect the cellars from the summer heat, they would plant chestnut, which have spreading, dense canopies but shallow roots which would not intrude on the caverns. The practice of serving beer at these sites evolved into the modern beer garden.
...Lager beer uses a process of cool fermentation, followed by maturation in cold storage. The German word "Lager" means storeroom or warehouse. The yeast generally used with lager brewing is Saccharomyces pastorianus, a close relative of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast used for warm fermented ales.




Notes regarding early Iowa prohibition in the 1800's:
http://www.dsaiowacom/images/Prohibition.pdf
...1850’s...Iowa had a large influx of German immigrants in the early 1850’s as the German struggle for liberty failed in Europe. 
.....Bohemian and Solvakian, and other Austrian Empire immigrants were coming into Iowa at the same time. 
.....Beer production and consumption was an important part of their cultures. 
.....Beer was an important part of German/Czech celebrations, and on Sundays.
 
...Iowa had a history of prohibition since it’s territorial days.
......Temperance groups had been meeting in Iowa since the 1830’s.
.....By the 1850’s the temperance movement in Iowa well established when major German/Czech immigration occurred.
......Robert Lucas, first Iowa Territory Governor and appointees, were strong supporters of the temperance movement.
 
..1855...The Iowa legislature passed “An act for the suppression of intemperance.”
.....The act prohibited liquor (production).
.....But allowed that homemade cider and wine could be sold in quantities of “not less than 5 gallons.”
.....Liquor from other states could be imported “in its original packages”.
.....1855April...The ‘Act’ passed by a statewide special election.
.....By 1855, the number of German/Czech immigrants achieving citizenship and voting status was not significant.
 
...1858...As a concession to the growing German population, Iowa amended the law to allow the “manufacture and sale of beer, cider from apples or wine from grapes or other fruits grown in the state.
 
...1858>1870’s...The law in Iowa regarding liquor/beer/wine, remained generally as amended in 1858.
 
...1861-1865...During Civil War years,  temperance was not an active issue in Iowa.
.....German Americans were passionately anti-slavery and volunteered for the Union Army in large numbers, perhaps partly a continuation of their lost fight for liberty in Europe. .Prohibition and blue laws were considered infringements on Liberty.
......German Americans aligned strongly with the anti-slavery Republican Party during the Civil War.
.....In 1860, the Republican Party Platform in Iowa considered adopting temperance but was dropped to secure the support of the German-Americans.
......The Democrat party was divided into factions with varying positions on slavery.
 
...1866>1870’s
......After the Civil War the Republican platform was favorable to prohibition to varying degrees.
....The Democrat Party usually favored a local option on the sale of alcohol with high license fees for saloons where they were allowed.
.....Temperance again became a dominant issue.  Many German-Americans turned away from the Republican Party.
 
...1880 and 1882...The Iowa legislature passed a proposed amendment to the Iowa constitution that prohibited all alcohol.
......To amend the Iowa constitution requires two consecutive general assemblies of the legislature to pass the proposal, followed by a statewide general vote.
 
CONSTITUTIONAL PROHIBITORY AMENDMENT OF 1882 (prohibiting all alcohol production and sales).
 
...1882June27...Iowa citizens voted in a special election and passed the Constitutional Amendment that prohibited all alcohol production and sales.
.....The amendment 155,43 to 125,677, with 75 counties favoring the amendment, 23 opposed, with 1 county a tie. 
.....The most important factor of amendment pass/fail was the fraction of German descent in a county.
 
...1882Oct... Koehler and Lange Brewery of Davenport filed a lawsuit against John Hill. Koehler and Lange had delivered to Hill an amount of beer.
.....Hill maintained that beer was not legal under the constitution (the new 1882 amendment) and he could not be forced to pay for an illegal product John Hill was the proprietor of the restaurant and saloon at Turner Hall in Davenport.
..... Koehler and Lange contended that the amendment was not passed in the same form in both sessions of the legislature, so the amendment was not valid.
.....The real reason for the lawsuit was to get a ruling on this issue. The case was heard in district court and ruled that the amendment was not valid, therefore the court ordered payment.
..1882Dec...The case was appealed to the Supreme Court of Iowa and was argued in Davenport.
..1883Jan18...The Supreme Court ruled 5 to 1, upholding the ruling of the District Court  court, thus voiding the 1882 Prohibition Amendment.
...1883...The Iowa temperance forces in the Legislature did not pass another prohibitory amendment to the constitution until the next Iowa general assembly.
 
PROHIBITORY LAW OF 1884
(1884>1894)
...1884July04...The Iowa Legislature general assembly newly passed laws prohibiting the manufacture, transport, or sale of liquor went into effed
..... Prohibition was now the law of the State of Iowa.  Enforcement of prohibition was another matter. In the large cities enforcement was difficult or non-existent.
......In Dubuque and Sioux City the law was ignored.
.....Council Bluffs passed an ordinance that any saloon operating in the city would be fined $50 per month, ($600 per year).
.....The city council of Sioux City rejected a similar ordinance because “it would provide no protection to the saloonkeepers.”
.....In Davenport, Burlington, and Keokuk instead of ordering “beer” a customer would order “mum.”
.....In Clinton the saloons served “hopinine.”
.....In Des Moines, “while the saloons are apparently closed, two carloads of beer are received and sold daily in Des Moines.” 
.....The Des Moines Tribune would later reported:  Under the prohibitory law the state experienced a reign of terror. Bootlegging was common; “blind pigs” and holes in the wall flourished on every hand; official outrages of various kinds were committed; murders growing out of attempted enforcement of the law were numerous; shrewd justices of  the peace and constables waxed rich from outrageous prosecutions; private homes were invaded by alleged officers, and conditions assumed the status of a rebellion.
 
MULCT ACT of 1884
...1889...Largely because of the party’s position on prohibition, the Republican Party of Iowa lost the Gubernatorial elections in 1889 and 1891 and was in danger of losing control of the legislature.
.....Because of political pressures and the difficulty of enforcing the prohibition law of 1884, where the population did not support it, the Republican Party of Iowa changed its position on prohibition.
..1893...The Iowa Republican platform was changed to, “prohibition was never said to be a real test of republicanism.” On a national basis it had varied by state.
 
...1894...The Iowa legislature passed the Mulct Act, a law providing in effect the local option to allow saloons.
.....The 1884 Prohibitory law was not repealed, but would be violated upon consent of a certain percent of the people of a given community and the payment of a certain sum of money.
......Under the Mulct law was that the prospective saloonkeeper would circulate a petition and get a certain number of signatures approving his operating the saloon. The Mulct law also set a number of other operating restrictions.
......Enforcement of the Mulct law was local. Any citizen could file a civil case against a saloon violating conditions of the act and get injunctive relief closing the saloon as a nuisance or setting conditions on its continued operation.
