Birth: Mar. 2, 1826
Hessen, Germany
Death: Jun. 4, 1902

From the Canton German Paper
"Reiter-Anna Margaretha Reiter (Maiden Name Schaefer) was born on the 2nd of March 1826 in Niederkreisbach, grandduke estate Hessen-Darmstadt, and died blessed in the Lord on the 4th of June 1902 in Lewis County, MO. She immigrated in 1848 with her family to America and settle in Quincy, Il. The same year she married Johann Reiter and the marriage was blessed with 9 children. In 1864 her husband and three of their children proceeded her into eternity. The deceased lived for quite a while on her estate, where she raised her children as faithful, hardworking homemaker she was. She joined our church at a meeting led by David Huene in her house by Peri, II and found on September 10, 1853 after a long and hard repentance time the forgiveness of her sins. From that time on she tried to serve her Lord. For many years now, because of her age, visits to her church services are not possible, but she told the writer, that the Lord always keeps her company in her lonely hours. The Lords words and the Apologeten is what reads since 1854. Three of her siblings, her brother Schaefer and sister Schiermann from Chicago and sister Ebers from Quincy, came to her funeral.
