Martha Anna Aguste Reich, called Anna most of her life, was born to Rudolph Johann Carl Reich and Bertha Friedrike Auguste Schmeling 2 July 1878 in Grob Sabow, Naugard, Pomerania, Prussia, Germany (currently located in Poland). In 1882, at the age of 3, she immigrated to the United States with her parents on a ship named "Katie." Her mother died shortly after their arrival to America and her father married Anna Elske, who also had a daughter named Anna. To avoid confusion, Martha Anna was nicknamed "Big Annie" and Anna Elske's daughter, Anna, was nicknamed "Little Annie."
Big Annie married Ernest Fredrick Krienitz 18 April 1899 in Germantown, South Dakota. They lived the rest of their lives in South Dakota.
