Birth: May 5, 1838, Germany
Death: Dec. 3, 1916
Missouri, USA

December 8, 1916, Warrenton Banner, page 1
Aged Mother Laid to Rest. Mrs. Henry Wegener, nee Christina Schwartz, was born in Rehme Muenden, Westphalia, Germany, May 5, 1838, and spent her childhood days in the Fatherland. While she was still quite young, her parents came to America to make their home, and they settled at once in Warren county, which continued to be the family home. In 1856 she was united in the holy bonds of matrimony with Henry Wegener, and for sixty years they traveled the rugged pathway of life together. While there were sorrows and reverses, yet there were many, many happy, contented days, and we arc sure the world is better because of their lives. This union was blessed with twelve children, seven sons and five daughters, six of whom preceded the mother to eternity. Those surviving are: Henry, Joseph and Louis, all of near Warrenton; Edward of near Wright City; Charles of Mayview, Mo., and Mrs. Charles Harder of Higginsville. The latter was unable to attend the funeral of her mother on account of the serious illness of a granddaughter.
In her early life Mother Wegener became a member of the German Methodist church, but about 12 years ago transferred her membership to the M. E. church, South, at Macedonia where she remained a faithful and consistent member until the Lord called her home. She was a devout Christian, a devoted wife, a loving mother, and a kind neighbor. She leaves her aged companion, five sons, one daughter, forty-two grand-children, 21 great-grandchildren and a large number of friends. The eventful career of Mrs. Wegener came to a close at the family home in the Macedonia vicinity Sunday, December 3, at the age of 78 years, 6 months,' and 28 days. The funeral services were conducted at the church where she held her membership, Tuesday, December 5, and were conducted by Rev. Davis, Rev. Schlicter and Rev. Kies.
Note: She is a sister to Friedrich Christian Schwarze
