Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Oct. 11, 1876, Germany
Death: Sep. 5, 1920
Miami County
Kansas, USA

Maggie, as she was known, was the
daughter of John Koerber and Hannah
Pruner. She was born in Germany,
possibly near Berlin. She had a
younger sister Anna Barbara (wife of
Silas Orin Sage) who was also born in
Gemany. The family came to the US in
1884. They went first to Kansas or
Nebraska, where John died during one
of their first winters of frostbite.
Afterward, Hannah, Maggie, and Anna
moved to Lewis County, Washington.
There, on 2/18/1887 Hannah married
August Schnarr. On January 14, 1893,
Maggie married Jacob Ast, a widower
with four children. They had eight
children of their own: Rosa (1895),
my grandfather William John (1897),
Margaret Elizabeth (1899), Earnest
(1902), Ida L. (1904), Henrietta
(1905), and twins Jakob Ludwig &
Minna Louisa (1908). Unfortunately,
only Rosa, William, Elizabeth, & Ida
survived to adulthood. In the early
1900's, the family changed their
surname to Aust, as it was easier to
pronounce. In 1913 the family moved
back to Ellis County, KS, settling in
Hays. Two weeks later, Jake died.
Maggie and the children remained in
Hays. Maggie died seven years later.
