Birth: Sep. 21, 1817, Germany
Death: Apr. 11, 1910
Forest County
Pennsylvania, USA

Mrs. Anna Margaret Behrens, wife of Ernest Behrens, died at the family home on German Hill, Green township, Monday morning, at five o'clock. Her death was due to ailments incident to old age and came after an illness of eleven weeks. She was born in Gumbert, Hessen Cassel, now Hessen Nassau, Germany. She came to America in 1848, sailing from Antwerp on May 27th, and locating first in Allegheny, Pa. There on April 25, 1850, she was united in marriage with Mr. Behrens and in 1859 the family came to Forest county, settling in the then almost unbroken wilderness on German Hill. For one year they resided on the Adam Sibble farm and since that time on the farm on which she ended her days. During all these years she was a faithful and loving helpmate for her husband, who survives her at an advanced age, being in his ninetieth year and yet hale and hearty. Five children were born to this worthy couple, three of whom survive, as follows: Lewis Behrens of Starr; Rudolph Behrens of Lindsay, Calif. and Mrs. Sophia Kiser, living on the old homestead. There are also thirteen grand-children and six great-grand-children. In early life she united with the Lutheran church and faithfully followed its precepts until the Lord called her home. An affectionate mother and a good neighbor, she will be sincerely mourned in the community. Funeral services will be held at two o'clock this afternoon in the Mt. Zion Lutheran church, German Hill. The services will be conducted by Rev. H.J. Reimann, of Oil City. Interment will be made in the Lutheran cemetery.
