Born in Hanover, Germany. - Cem. records: buried 1903, age 62 yrs.

Death record: ALTHEN Christina Feb 13 1903 v.7 p.143

(Note: The following obits appear to be for Christina, however, the dates are about 2 weeks later than her death. I'm including them, as they were linked to her name in the cemetery transcription records. It's worth noting that the obit says she leaves 4 children, however, the 1900 census shows 10 children living.)

From Der Nord Westen, 26 Feb. 1903: (From the correspondent in Two Rivers, 24 Feb.)
Death of widow Mrs. Henry Althen, a resident of Town Two Rivers, last night at age 72. She leaves 4 children in good circumstances. The funeral will be Wed. from the Lutheran Church.
From Der Nord Westen, 26 Feb. 1903: (From the correspondent in Mishicott, 24 Feb.)
Death of Mrs. H. Althen of pneumonia Mon. morning at her home. The funeral will be tomorrow at the Two Rivers Cemetery.

Per 1880 census, Mishicott - She was age 40, husband was Henry age 43. 9 children: Sophia (20), Charlotte, Christina, Catherine, Henry, John, Mima, Louisa (4), & George (1 mo).

1900 census, Mishicott - Widow, 10 births, 10 living. Age 59, b. Nov 1840 Germany. Children at home: Henry (30), Louisa (24), & Julius (18, May 1882).

Maiden name:
A contributor/relative when providing info about her daughter Louisa, gave the maiden name of "Bender". However it appears (census's) there were 2 Christine Althen's living in the same area, both married to Henry/Heinrich. One was maiden name Bender, the other Meiner, per birth/marriage records. Both husbands died, 1893 & 1895. They were about 15 years apart in age, one born in Wisc., the other in Germany. Based on info found, Christina was born Meiner in Germany.)

(Note: located obituary for Carl Althen, stating his parents were Henry & Christina Meines Althen. He was b. 24 May 1882 in Mishicott...same year as Julius. However, he appears in no census with the family, nor could he & Julius be born in 1882, diff. months. 1900 census, he was born May 1883, and was listed on the farm next to his mother's as a servant. If he were her son, she would have 11 children, not 10 as per the 1900 census.)
