Josephine Geiger Etter

Birth: unknown, Switzerland
Death: Jan. 1, 1880
Clinton County
Illinois, USA

Josephine Geiger married "Meinrad" Etter July 16, 1857 in St Louis, Missouri. They may have been married at the St. Louis Cathedral.

In the 1870 Clinton County, Illinois Census Menard Etter, 40, and wife Josephine, 35, have children Sophia, 12; Anna, 7; and Josephine, 3. The children were born in Illinois, Menard and Josephine in Switzerland.

Other children mentioned in the 1880 Census after Josephine's death are M. Jo. (Menard Joseph), 7, and Rosa, 4.

Josephine died at age 44(cemetery source) or 45 (US Mortality Schedule), from "Consumption," known after 1882 as Tuberculosis. She is a sister of Sophie Geiger Mueller (Muller, Miller).

Menard Etter, 80, can be found living with daughter Josephine, 42, and her husband John B Adams, 39, and family, in the 1910, Pleasant Mound, Bond County, Illinois Census. A listing of Illinois state deaths has Joseph Menard Etter died April 12, 1914 at age 84. His place of burial is unknown at this time.

In the New York Passenger Lists 1820-1957 there is a "Mairath" Etter, 24, Swiss origin, arriving in New York City August 22, 1854 on the ship Leonidas. It departed from Le Havre, France. I think this is likely Menard.
