Kunigunda Eberlein arrived in Baltimore in 1862. She married Georg Kuhn who arrived on the same ship. It is unknown whether they knew each other before the voyage. She was born in Laub, Bavaria in 1839, the daughter of Johann Eberlein & Maria Lay/Leyh.

They had 12 children; four of which outlived them. One son, John, drowned at the age of 18 and was buried in the "St. Joseph" section of St. Alphonsus in 1883. The family church was St. Michael's Catholic Church. Interment records are missing from 1871-1881. I have only created FindAGrave records for known burials but it is assumed that George Joseph Kuhn (March 1871 - September 1871) and George Karlatz Kuhn (June 1874 - August 1874) were also buried at St. Alphonsus.

Georg and Kunigunda were buried at St. Alphonsus cemetery. George died from Dropsy, Kunigunde died from Heart trouble. According to http://www.germanmarylanders.org/cemeteries/st-alphonsus they would have been buried at St. Alphonsus III-Loney's Lane and Biddle Street near Edison Highway...and their remains moved to Most Holy Redeemer but we do not have confirmation. Some of the children would have been buried at St. Alphonsus II (today, assumed to be at the intersection of Druid Hill Road and Madison Avenue, Baltimore).

Kunigunda is also known as Kunigunde; Cunigunda; Cunigunde; and Jennie (not quite sure where that came from...but her niece Cunigunde Arch-Lang also used the nickname Jennie).
