Remembering Marianna “Mina” Allwardt

July 12, 2013

Today is the birthday of Marianne “Mina” (Allwardt) Heiden, my third great grandmother on my father’s side of the family. Mina was born in Germany on 12 Jul 1829. She married Fredrick Carl August Heiden, likely sometime around or before 1853 when their son, Theodore Frederick, was born. When she was 27 years old, she boarded the Charles Fowler ship with her husband and son, and immigrated to Illinois. The family arrived on 20 Jun 1857.

Mina and her family lived in New York for a period of time, then moved to Effingham County, IL. She gave birth to ten children, three of whom died in infancy. My great-great-grandmother, Mary Albertine Heiden Aderman was her sixth-born.

Mina lived a long life of 77 years and died of tuberculosis on 31 Jan 1907.
