SOURCES: All information about Maria Anna was taken from the book St Clement Parish Bowling Green, MO, Family of Faith 1871-1996. Parish records on microfilm for Bokeloh and other Emsland parishes only go as far as 1875 so Maria Anna's birthdate could not be verified. Even so, the date is being quoted here because birthdates for her older siblings noted in the same St Clement book were all found to be correct when Bokeloh parish records were checked.
