According to the New York City marriage record, Marie's last name was Schmittinger and her parents were Matthew Schmittinger and Appollonia Mueller.("New York, New York City Marriage Records, 1829-1940," database, FamilySearch ( : accessed 5 June 2016), Bernhard Lieber and Maria Schmittinger, 12 Jun 1902; citing Marriage, Manhattan, New York, New York, United States, New York City Municipal Archives, New York; FHL microfilm 1,570,818.)

Maria arrived in New York (indexed as Schnittingen) on 16 Mar 1891 aboard the Rugia. Her parents were not with her.(New York, Passenger Lists, 1820-1957 [ database on-line].

Marie is shown as being born in Schesslitz, Oberfranken.  Her ship left Hamburg on 1 March 1891.(Staatsarchiv Hamburg. Hamburg Passenger Lists, 1850-1934 [database on-line].
