Agnes Kramer Meiners was born in November 1822 in Haverbeck, in the province of Oldenburg in Germany. About 1848 she became the second wife of Hermann Heinrich Meiners in Cincinnati, Hamilton County, Ohio. Before her death in Cincinnati at age 46 during childbirth (and the death of the baby) on December 17, 1868, she gave birth to four children: Edmund B. Meiners, Hermann Meiners, Jr., Mary Meiners Burdick, and Henry G. Meiners. She is buried on one side of her husband, and his third wife is on the other side at Saint Joseph Catholic Cemetery in Cincinnati. Family tradition has it that both Agnes and Hermann's first wife picked out their successor before dying. Apparently each told Hermann whom he should marry next, and he obliged.
