11. August Ernst Diedrich (b. June 17, 1840 d. 1925)

"This data, in as far as birthdates are concerned, were found in a small German bible. August was youngest of 14 children, hence 3 children apparently died before becoming adults. Data apparently furnished by Minnie Koester (sic!), according to a letter.

According to A. E. Koster (#11) there were 14 children in all, of he was the last. Apparently 3 died before they became adults and were probably of little moment. A. E. Koster said that 2 went to China as missionaries. I do not know the names of these 2 sons. The majority of the family were highly religious. Two or three were not particularly of religious bent."

All the above remarks and genealogy by Hollis Koster.

Note: my research indicates that only one brother, Heinrick (#4), went to China as a missionary. He went to Hong Kong in 1847 and died there six months later.
