Tombstone Tuesday - Margaret Tanreuther (1830-1874)

Margaret Montebaugh Tanreuther, wife of Frederick Tanreuther, born in Maryland in March 1830 and died in Farmersville, Montgomery County, Ohio June 4th, 1874.  No cause of death was given on her death record.  She was Frederick's first wife and the mother to 11 of his children - John W., Mary C., Sarah E., Charles, Rebecca*, Ellen, Catherine, Anna E., Emma, Franklin and Anna M.

Margaret and Frederick were married Feb 18, 1851 in Hagarstown, Washington County, Maryland. Margaret & Frederick are my GGG grandparents. They are both buried in the Farmersville Cemetery, Farmersville, Montgomery County, Ohio. 

The names of Margaret's parents are unknown to the compiler as of this writing. I do believe her mother's name was Sarah however, there is much to be proven at this point.

After Margaret's death Frederick marries Susan Bailey and together they have an additional 10 children.  If you have ties to the Tanreuther family I'd love to hear from you.  You can contact me by either leaving a comment below or by emailing me at karenatmiprofgeniedotcom. 

Happy Researching!
