The date of her first marriage was found in the St. Louis marriage index but the parish is not known. Her sister Margaretha was known to have been born in Doerpen, so that parish's records were checked and a baptismal entry was found there for Anna Catharina. It is not known who the parents of the 3 oldest children on the 1860 census were. Because of their ages, Wilhelm and Mary were probably Bernhard Jansen's children but Elisabeth born ca 1854 may have been either his or Anna Catharine's.
