Christina Anna Pfister

Christina Anna Pfister


Christina Anna was born 10 Apr 1845 in Pennsylvania to Francis Anna and Maria Seiler. She married Vitus Pfister on 14 Jan 1862 in Carrolltown. They purchased land northeast of Carrolltown near Baker's Crossroad. Christina gave birth to ten children. Due to the fact that her husband died early, she was left to raising the children and running the farm on her own.

Christina died from heart disease 8 Nov 1904 on her farm near Carrolltown. She is buried in St. Benedict's Cemetery in Carrolltown. It is interesting to note that she gave birth to their daughter, Anna on the same day as her husband's burial.
