SOURCES: Anna Adelhdeid's exact date of birth was on her tombstone. Her probable place of birth was given on the passenger lists of the ship Luentin . Because she and her husband had emigrated from Varloh, Jack Martens checked the Meppen parish records and found a marriage entry for them there. From that document, her parents' names were known and a baptismal record was found for her in the same parish. Information about the children came from St. Francis Xavier records.
