Birth: May 6, 1866
Gießener Landkreis
Hessen, Germany
Death: Jul. 20, 1912

Daughter of Johannes Bourrée and Catharine Rieb. She was born in Laubach, Germany. Her siblings, Christian Bourree and Marie Bourree Bach both became US citizens. One sister, Barbara, married and stayed in Germany.

My great grand aunt served as a governess to the Harvey family in Pennsylvania. The family spent half the year in Europe and the other half at their home in PA. She died of a pulmonary embolism from Chronic Bright's Disease at the age of 46. Her occupation in 1912 is listed as a nurse. She is buried in the Harvey family burial plots in Wilkes Barre, PA.
