Marie Anna Hermscheips Brueggemann

Maria died on February 20, 1889.  She was the second wife of Clamor V.L. Brueggemann.  He lived for 20 more years.    She was buried on this day.

We are somewhat uncertain about her age.  A family tree that was done in 1922 had her birth year as 1828.  The City of Cleveland Death Certificate listed the year as 1828 but the ship's record when she immigrated list it at 1819 but I think that was an error on the part of the clerk aboard the ship, maybe he meant 1829.  The 1870 census lists the year as 1824.   The death certificate lists her cause of death as Heart disease.

They are buried together in the Lutheran Cemetery in Cleveland.

Thanks to a volunteer of for these pictures.
