Birth: Sep. 22, 1866
Baden-Württemberg, Germany
Death: Mar. 19, 1948
Baden-Württemberg, Germany

Magdalena's mother was Barbara Woerz from Wilsingen, Wuerttenberg, Germany. Magdalena was born and died in Wilsingen and never married.

Joseph Meyer married Barbara Woerz (16 Nov 1842 - after 1909) on 24 Jan 1865. Joseph left Barbara and Magdalena in Germany when he immigrated to the US. After Joseph died, Barbara claimed that he never divorced her and that their daughter Magdalena was the only legitimate child. There is a court case in the Missouri Supreme Court in 1909 that details this. The court ruled that Barbara had to prove Joseph did not divorce her which she could not do. Magdalena did consider moving to Missouri with Joseph in 1885 when he visited Germany.

The disposition of Joseph Meyer's estate in Jasper Co, MO, gives Magdalena her share of the estate.
