Age 57 years.

Johann Peter Friederich Wilhelm Köster was born on August 17, 1844 in Selow Mecklenburg-Schwerin to Johann Jochim Peter Köster and Catarina Maria Beata Propp. He was christened on August 18 in Neukirchen Parish. He emigrated from Bremen in 1872 (probably on March 27 to New York). He married Sophie Maria Molly Hamann on October 14, 1872 in New Bremen, Ohio by Reverand Weisse. He and Molly had 6 children in New Bremen before Molly passed away in 1892. He moved to Oklahoma with all but one of his children in 1899 to live on the farm he inherited from his brother Joseph. This cemetery is on that land.
