SOURCES:

Anna Margaretha's date (Sep 24, 1893) and place of birth and parents' names were found on Martin Scheper's FTM website. Because her birthdate was after 1875 it could not be checked in parish records on microfilm available to researchers. The family's emigration however was listed in the book Auswanderungsliste fuer die fruehere Pfarrgemeinde Twist in den Jahren 1838 - 1910 nach Amerika which noted her birthdate as March 8, 1893 (instead of Sep 24) and was presumably based on parish records. Information about her death, husbands and children was from Martin's FTM webpage.
