Anna Maria's date of birth and parents were noted in the family listings at the beginning of St Boniface baptismal records.

That information allowed an entry for her to be identified in Walter Tenfelde's book Auswanderungen und Auswanderer aus dem ehemaligen Kreise Lingen nach Nordamerika which supplied place of birth and year of emigration with destination (Schulkriek near St Louis.)
