According to her Widows Pension record she was born at Bersenbrück and her parents names were Gerd Hermann and Elisabeth Marie (Zumberge) Korte. She had a brother, Henry who became the Damm childrens' guardian for the pension payments; and two sisters who remained in Hastrup (Bersenbrück). She lived the majority of her life in the USA at Buffalo City, Buffalo County, Wisconsin until after 1900 when they moved to Winona, Minnesota. She continued to live with her daughter Franziska "Frances" Damm Fischer's family until she died.
