After the death of Henry Brockwinkel, Mary Ann married a second time in 1872 to widower, John Conrad Wankum who was raising eleven of his twelve children from his first wife Anna Marie Bax. Mary & John then had their combined families of fifteen children to raise, but they added three more to their big family. Otto George Wankum born May 13, 1908, died 1980 and is buried in Meta. ( Otto married Barbara Marie Rackers.) John and Mary had another son named Martin who is also buried in Meta. Their last daughter was Angela Anna Wankum born 1910 ( who married Emil J Walther).

When John died, Mary Ann then married a third time in 1938 George W Schell (1863-1944) and outlived him too. All of Mary's husbands are in this same cemetery.
