Henrietta Mehnert Landgraf was born on 10 Nov 1847 in Saxony, Germany. She was Lutheran.

Her parents were Gotlob & Henrietta Mehnert. Henrietta had one known sibling, Gustav Mehnert.

While still in Saxony, Germany Henrietta married Herman Frederick Landgraf in about 1878. Before coming to America in 1891 the couple had 3 children.

They were:
1. Hedwig (Altz) 1879-1924 MI, 3 children
2. Frieda (Kennedy) 1883-1918 MI, 5 children
3. Herman 1886-1957 CA, 4 children

The only known other family (Landgrafs or Mehnerts) to also come to America was Henrietta's brother Gustave Mehnert. The families settled in the Detroit, Michigan. Henrietta & Herman lived on the East side of Detroit in Wayne County and Gustav and his wife Caroline & children Wm & Frederick lived in Macomb County.

Henrietta only lived in America for 4 years. On 28 Sep 1895, at the age of 47, Henrietta died after fighting Nephritis for 3 months.

Henrietta left behind Hedwig 16, Frieda 12, Herman 8 and her husband Herman 43.

Sadly Henrietta's daughters would also have a short life. Frieda died when she was only 35 and Heddie died when she was 45.
