Anna Elisabeth Riedesel (1844)

Anna Elisabeth Riedesel was born May 10, 1844 in Wunderthausen to Ludwig Heinrich and Maria Amalia (Beitzel) Riedesel. The next year, her entire extended family left Germany to settle in Crawford County, Ohio.

Anna was dead by 1848, apparently the victim of an epidemic that claimed her mother, grandparents and others. To the best of our knowledge she was buried in what was then a family “Settlement Cemetery” near Galion. No permanent markers exist.
