Picture to right is of Herman Heinrich Schoppenhorst's father, Herman Wilhelm Schoppenhorst (1795-1876), and is courtesy of Dr. Martin Schoppenhorst, Berlin, Germany. More than likely, the picture dates to circa 1860-1870. Therefore, the woman is not Wm Schoppenhorst's first wife, Anna Katharina Gravemeier, but is his second wife, Anna Christine Elisab König.
