Maria Barbara Beilstein was born in Bürglen, Canton of Bern, Switzerland, the daughter of George Nicolaus Beilstein of Lichtenberg, Hessen-Darmstadt and his wife Elisabetha Salome "Lissette" Bickel, a native of Jalsberg, Canton of Bern, Switzerland. Marianne's birth occurred while her father, obviously a Hessian mercenary, was serving in the French Army's occupation of Switzerland. The young family moved back to Lichtenberg following their daughter's birth. Maria Barbara "Marianne" Beilstein married Rohrbach native Johann Georg Reisinger in the village of Wembach on October 20, 1825. The couple made their home and raised their family in that same village, where her husband and father-in-law practiced the stocking weaver trade. Marianne departed Bremen in late 1859 on the ship Columbia with her two youngest children, arriving at the Port of Baltimore on January 17, 1860. Her new home in America was with her daughter Maria Christiana, who had immigrated to Baltimore in 1852, and Maria's husband Nicolaus Ruppel, also a native of Hesse-Darmstadt. Following her 1868 death, Maria Barbara Beilstein Reisinger was buried in the Ruppel family plot, which sits in a corner of St. Paul's Cemetery, near a tennis court.
