Born in 1825, Caroline Bergman Meiners was the first wife of Hermann Heinrich Meiners. Her heritage was German. She died at age 22 in 1847 in Cincinnati, Hamilton County, Ohio during her first childbirth along with the baby, and Hermann went on to marry a second and then a third wife. Family tradition has it that both Caroline and Hermann's second wife picked out their successor before dying. Apparently each told Hermann whom he should marry next, and he obliged. She is buried in Saint Joseph Catholic Cemetery in Cincinnati.
