Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: May 1, 1825, Germany
Death: May 24, 1917

Married 11 Nov 1844 at Dansville, Livingston County, New York.

Maria has appeared in records as Marie, Mary and Maria. According to the family bible of Daniel & Maria Lukenbill, her name was Maria, born 1 May 1825.

Her death certificate lists her father's name as John Folz.

In records and various family trees, Marie's maiden name has been spelled Folz, Foltz, Volz & Voltz.


Marie Folz was born May 1, 1825 in Meitzweller, Germany. At the age of ten years she came with her parents to America and settled in Dansville, New York. Nov 11, 1844, she was married to Daniel Lukenbill. Eleven children were born of this union, of which three daughters and four sons survive her. Her husband died Jan. 27, 1907. She was a member of the Evangelican Lutheran church.

Her life was spent mainly in her home and consequently her family knew her best worth. From them and my own observations in the home I have learned somewhat of the remarkable patience of our departed friend. An invalid for many years, she remained cheerful and pleasant in her disposition, something worth remembering by those who knew her. In the school of affliction she was thoroughly tried and found not wanting. Surely the loving care which she received was not in vain.

The funeral in charge of Rev. P. M. Phillips, was held at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Newton Harvey, in Postville, Iowa, where she died on the evening of May 24, 1917. The burial was in Postville Cemetery.

Published in The Postville Review, Postville, Iowa. May 1917.
