Elizabeth Mary Kreke Meiners
Birth: May 10, 1845, Germany
Death: Feb. 10, 1922
Highland County
Ohio, USA

The daughter of Johann Heinrich Kreke and Maria Catharina Wilhelmina Alberding Kreke, Elizabeth Mary Kreke Meiners was born in Alfhausen, Germany on May 10, 1845, and in Cincinnati, Hamilton County, Ohio she became the third wife of Herman Heinrich Meiners. They had nine children: George Gerard Meiners, Rose Elizabeth Meiners Helmers, John H. Meiners, William G. Meiners, Agnes Meiners Schninner, Bernhard F. Meiners, Joseph Peter Meiners, Leo Meiners, and Gertrude Meiners Uhl. Herman and Elizabeth were married on May 13, 1869 at Saint Francis Seraph Catholic Church in Cincinnati. She died at age 76 on February 10, 1922 at the home of a daughter in Greenfield, Highland County, Ohio. She is buried on one side of her husband, and his second wife is on the other side at Saint Joseph Catholic Cemetery in Cincinnati. Family tradition has it that both Hermann's first and second wives picked out their successor before dying. Apparently each told Hermann whom he should marry next, and he obliged.

Thanks so much to descendent Mary Donnelly Minges for so much of this information. Any errors, however, are mine alone. Please go to the "edit" link on this site with any corrections or additions.
