At the age of nineteen, she married August Casper Pfannstiel on 31 March 1867. They had nine children: Emma, Alwina, Augusta, Thekla, Alwin, Ida, Otto, Ferdinand, and Elfrieda. Dora died in Guadalupe County, Texas on 13 March 1935. Her husband August preceded her in death on 30 September 1915. Dora and August are buried in the Marion Cemetery in Marion, Texas.
If you don’t recount your family history, it will be lost. Honor your own stories and tell them too. The tales may not seem very important, but they are what binds families and makes each of us who we are. Madeleine L’Engle
Remember the days of old; consider the generations long past. Ask your father and he will tell you, your elders, and they will explain to you –Deuteronomy 32:7
To forget one’s ancestors is to be a brook without a source, a tree without roots – Chinese Proverb
