Anna Elisabeth Henriette Geisberg born in Stromberg, Westphalia, Kingdom of Prussia to Max Friedrich Geisberg and Johanna Huffer. Known as "Jette." Married Dr. Johann Bernhard Bruns on May 24, 1832 in Prussia.

"Jette's letters home to Germany were made into the book "Hold Dear As Always: A German Immigrant Life in Letters", edited by Dr. Adolf Schroeder of the University of Missouri at Columbia. Of her ten children, she lost three -- Max, Johanna, and Rudolf -- within a few weeks due to scarlet fever in Westphalia, MO, where the family was then living. Another was killed fighting in Union Army in the Civil War.She was a remarkable lady with great strength and endurance."
