Anna Magdalena Stehle was the eldest child of Francis Xavier Stehle and Sarah Day. According to some sources she was born in Bloomfield Township in Oakland County, Michigan, but the family was residing in Farmington Township at the time of her birth. Anna married Oswald Arthur Kynast in Detroit on September 18, 1878. The ceremony was performed by August W. Bruske, Oswald's relative from his mother's side. They had a daughter, Clara Emmeline Kynast, who was born in Farmington on September 8, 1880. Anna died in October of 1881 from what her sister Sarah later described as "measlia fever", but was most likely typhoid fever. This is confirmed by the October 19, 1881 edition of the Pontiac (Michigan) Weekly Poster Bill newspaper which mentioned Anna's death a week after it occurred during what may have been a typhoid fever outbreak in Farmington Village. There is no record of where Anna was buried, but there could only be two possibilities. She was either interred at the Oakwood Cemetery in Farmington near where she had lived or, more likely, she was placed next to her mother at the Franklin Cemetery in nearby Franklin, Michigan. While those early cemetery records were destroyed in a fire, an old cemetery map survives which shows that Anna's father Francis Xavier Stehle owned a plot there. His newer grave marker is located on that spot. This is also where Anna was probably laid to rest.
