Stolzenau, Germany. After the death of Johann Frederick HOLSTE, she married a man named RICHARDS. She is buried near the entrance of the Lancaster IL cemetery.

On the back side:
-----------------

The HOLZE Family arrived in New Orleans LA on the river boat Bark Kepler, 30-Nov-1849 and came by river boat to Evansville IN. Then overland by oxcart to settle in just west of this spot. The original name HOLSTE, bears a change to HOLZE. A copy of the passenger manifest of the Bark Kepler is in the library at New Orleans LA. Wedding documents and birth certificates of all members of this family are in the records of the Saint Jakobi Church in Stolzenau, Germany.

Surviving family members in Jul-1852 were:

Holste, Sophia Dorothea
B. 13-Nov-1807 In Stolzenau Germany, 1st H. Johann F. Holste, 2nd H. ? Richards,
F. ? Bode (Boden)

Holste, Sophie Elsie Wilhelelmine
A. 17 (B. 1832?), H. August Brausa, P. Johann F. & S.D. Holste

Holste, Johann Henrich Freidrich
A. 11 (B. 1835?), W. Nancy Jane Keneipp, P. Johann F. & S.D. Holste

Holste, George Herman Heinrich

Holste, Henriette Conradine Louise
A. 5 (B. 1844?), H. Henry Corrie, P. Johann F. & S.D. Holste

May succeeding generations of these four pioneer families BRAUSA-CORRIE-KENEIPP-HOLSEN
keep this plot as a part of their family heritage.
