Tombstone Tuesday: Caroline Dienger

29 Dec
Caroline Dienger, sister to Karl Dienger and Bertha Staffel

Caroline Dienger

Geb. 26 Nov 1818

in Hausen, Baden

Gest. 4 Mar 1880

Caroline came to Texas with her brother Karl and her sister Bertha. She never married. On the 1870 Kendall County Census her year of birth is about 1825, but on her tombstone it is 1818. I am unsure which one is correct as she only appears on the 1870 census when she is living with her sister Bertha and family.

Caroline Dienger was one of thirty-three inhabitants to purchase burial plots in the Boerne Cemetery in 1867.
