Anna Catherina Pletschette Palen
Birth: Feb. 6, 1801
Wiltz
Diekirch, Luxembourg
Death: Mar. 17, 1855
Harlange
Diekirch, Luxembourg

My maternal fourth great grandmother, Anna Maria Pletschette.
Her Father was Jean-Pierre Pletschette and Anna Maria (Asselborn) Pletschette from Nengsen, Neunhausen, Canton of Wiltz, Luxembourg.
Married: Josef Palen Sr. on 4 April 1820 in Bachlieden, Diekirch, Luxembourg.
Children: Maria, Dominque (Dominick), Marie-Josephine, Joseph Jr., Nicholas Gregorie, Marie-Francois Christine, Pierre-Joseph, Anne-Marie Francois, Marie-Josephine, Leopold Frank, Marguerite, Julien, and Christine Palen.
Anne & Joseph Palen had fifteen (15) children, five (5) of whom died in infancy, among them twins.

The old Palen homeplace is about 100 feet across the street from the Saint Servatius Catholic Church Cemetery.

Saint Servatius [2] (Dutch: Sint Servaas; French: Saint Servais) (died in Maastricht, traditionally in 384) was bishop of Tongeren —Latin: Atuatuca Tungrorum the capital of the Tungri— and is revered as a Roman Catholic saint. Servatius is patron saint of the city of Maastricht, Schijndel and Grimbergen, and is venerated on May 13. He is one of the Ice Saints.~~~Wikipedia

***********************************************************
DEAR ANCESTOR
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.---Anonymous
