Her date of birth in the Eustis Area history matches her date of birth in her defective death record (which doesn't even give her given name), and the dates of birth and death on her death record match those on her gravestone in the Odd Fellows Rest Cemetery, Columbus, Colorado County, Texas.

Christiana Gengenbach was born 4 June 1865 at Kaltenwesten, Germany, daughter of Johann Friedrich and Christine Katharine (Müller) Gengenbach. She came to America in 1887 and married Jacob Schmeeckle on 4 Nov. 1888. “It is interesting how my grandparents Jacob and Nannie Gengenbach met. Jacob’s sister, Caroline, married a Gengenbach and when she died in childbirth, my grandmother, Nannie, came from Germany to take care of the baby, Christ Gengenbach, and there met Jacob. They were the first couple to be married in that ‘new’ Lutheran church in Eustis.”[1]
