Birth: Apr. 25, 1844
Brandenburg, Germany
Death: Jul. 13, 1939
Jackson County
Kansas, USA


An "Honored American Mother," Mrs. Louisa Schwindt of Holton, died July 13, 1939, at the age of ninety-five years. Capper's Weekly, Topeka, of July 22, featured her picture with the information that in the past two years she had received third honors, based on the number of direct living descendants, in Sen. Arthur Capper's "All American Grandma" contest. Mrs. Schwindt was the wife of a union soldier who came to Kansas following the Civil War. At the time of her death she had 209 living, direct descendants--nine children, 65 grandchildren and 135 great-grandchildren. "This was the same number which last year gave Mrs. Terence McCabe, Cresco, Iowa, first award as `Honored Mother of America,'" Capper's Weekly reported.
