Anna Schmeckpeper Siebrandt
May 24, 1856 - May 21, 1928
Mrs. Anna Siebrandt, nee Schmeckpeper, was born the 24th day of May 1856 in Hastedt, Germany. While yet in her teens she immigrated to America with her parents, who settled down in Cook Co, Ill. In the year 1875 on the 22nd day of October, the departed entered into the estate of holy matrimony with Herman Siebrandt. This union was blessed with 12 children, 5 sons and 7 daughters. Her husband and oldest daughter have preceded her into eternity. In the year 1885 the Siebrandt family came to Nebraska and since that time have lived in Cuming Co., the first year after arrival in Neligh Township, since then in Cleveland Township. Mrs. Siebrandt was in reality one of the earliest pioneers of this community and endured all the hardships, which are the lot of all true pioneers.
She was blessed with a strong constitution and mostly enjoyed excellent health. An ailing however, an open wound, caused her much trouble during the declining years of her life, and was finally to cause her death. Blood poisoning developed and permeated her body. This caused her great pain and suffering for the last months of her life. Two weeks before her death she began to lose consciousness and the last days of her life were spent in total oblivion. Quietly and peacefully she dosed her eyes on the 21st day of May about 11 o'clock at night, having reached the age of 71 years, 11 months 27 days.
Mrs. Siebrandt was a member of St. John's Lutheran Church in Cleveland Township from the time of its organization.
