  • Notes 
    • “Minna was born in Austin, Texas. She was the youngest child of the family of twelve children. She grew up in an atmosphere of prosperity compared to the hardships of the older children during the Civil War and Reconstruction days. She received her education at St. Mary’s Academy in Austin and was very proficient in needlework. She attended St. Martin’s Lutheran Church from early childhood and later was a Sunday school teacher and treasurer.

      “She was tall and neat, with a frank and kindly disposition. In the prime of life she was fond of hunting and fishing and adept at handling horses. She loved pets, especially dogs and canaries.

      “For some years she kept house competently for her parents, and after her mother’s death she cared for her aging father. At various times after her father’s death one or another of her brothers and their families lived in the old home with her. Later she disposed of her property and lived comfortably in the Altenheim, where she was visited by her nieces and nephews, who still fondly remember the pleasant times with her in the old stone house on Guadalupe Street.” [1]
