  • Notes 
    • “Lina” von Rosenberg was born at Eckitten Estate, was baptized at St. Johannis Kirche in Memel, and was confirmed at the Landkirche in Crottingen. She spent much of her youth with her mother’s relatives in Königsburg where she attended school and enjoyed musical entertainment.

      She came with her family to Texas in 1849 and married Arthur Meerscheidt a year later. They lived in a log house near Nassau, but later moved to La Grange. After the death of her husband, Lina moved to San Antonio where she kept house for three of her children, Max, Otto, and Martha. She and Martha also raised Max’s two sons after his wife passed away. In old age she returned to La Grange to live out her days in an invalid’s chair, cared for at the home of her daughter, Lieschen Scholz. She enjoyed reading and stayed abreast of politics. [14]
