From Ancestry.com -
Stuber siblings of this generation, except for the youngest, Jacob, emigrated to America in 1853. (Note: that means Anna Maria was 15 when she emigrated!)
Anna Maria first married Charles Herr in 1857 and had two sons, Carl Walter, born February 14, 1858, and George William, born January 23, 1860. Carl died at six weeks and George at 6 months of age. Both were born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Charles Herr was killed in the Civil war. You can read a translation of a letter from Charles to Anna, download here.
