Anna Marie was born November 1, 1828 at Tripsrath, Germany and died at age 45 on July 26, 1874 at Teutopolis, Teutopolis, Effingham, Illinois, USA She is buried in the "Old Part" of St Francis Catholic Cemetery, N. Green Street, Teutopolis, Teutopolis, Effingham, Illinois, USA, the grave site from south bridge abutment, 64 feet west (uphill), 193 feet south, and 27 feet east (first row from east).
She was called "Gertrude." Anna M. G., a striking beauty, was a lady-in-waiting in one of the homes of the Kaiser Wilhelm of Germany, to whom she was distantly related. Anna M.G.'s tombstone was broken in half many years ago. William Bryan Lumpkin, Anna M. G.'s great grandson, replaced the old tombstone at the grave site in July 1979. Both pieces of the old stone were buried under the new tombstone.
Her son, Joseph Anton, was born aboard ship while she was traveling to the United States in May, 1863. See Joseph Anton Hutmacher for the details.
NOTEs by Ronald J Repking: The birth date shown above in the Yearbook is incorrect. She was born on May 24, 1831. The list of births for Geilichkirchen shows that Anton Joseph was born there on May 16, 1863. The ship landing manifest for the Ship "Johann", dated May 1, 1864, has the name "Joseph" with an age of 1/2 year. This means the story contained in the citation shown above is incorrect. Anton was born prior to the ship sailing.
