The daughter and youngest child of Herman Bernard "Barney" Estermann and Maria Catherin Riesenbeck Estermann, Clara H. Estermann Meiners was born January 6 (the 12th Day of Christmas, Epiphany), 1876 in Cincinnati, Hamilton County, Ohio. Clara was one of five children. She married George Gerard Meiners on May 28, 1897 in Saint Lawrence Roman Catholic Church in Cincinnati, and they had 13 children, about half of whom survived into adulthood, including: Herman George Meiners, Clare Cecelia "Ceil" Meiners Donnelly, Lawrence H. "Bill" Meiners, Clara Meiners, Eleanor Clara Meiners, Paul John Meiners, George Meiners, Roger Sampson Meiners, Genevieve Meiners, Thomas Meiners, Martin Meiners, Lucy Meiners, and at least one additional infant. Despite giving birth to so many children, Clara saw only four of her children having children of their own: Herm and Bill each had one child, Ceil had five, and Paul had six. Clara's husband George was on the Board of Directors of the Kroger Company. Like her husband she was devoted to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. She died at age 87 on December 7 (Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day), 1963 in Cincinnati and is buried at Saint Joseph Catholic Cemetery in Cincinnati. Her heritage was German. She and her husband were born on the same date one year apart.

Thanks so much to her granddaughter Mary Donnelly Minges for so much of this information. Any errors, however, are mine alone. Please go to the "edit" link on this site with any corrections or additions.
