Catherine Schnell Steinberger Genealogy
with Alice & Rosemary Prenatt
Family story by Rosemary Cleveland
Catherine is how her name is on the cemetery
stone, but the family spelled it Katherine.
12/18/06: I visited
Rosemary Cleveland today. She is the daughter of Clara M Steinberger
Prenatt, who was the daughter of Sam and Catherine Steinberger. She
is pictured above with her Grandmother Catherine and her sister,
Rosemary lives in Indianapolis, at St Augustine, where she has lived
for 20 years.
She thanked me many times for coming and said she wanted me to stay
all day, and asked me to come back as soon as I could. For 97 years
old, she is doing really well. The only medicine that she takes is
for blood pressure and we had a good conversation about family
history, places, etc..
I showed the photo of
Rosemary and her sister (above) with their Grandmother Catherine and
she said that Catherine learned to speak English but she would lapse
into German or a mix of German and English. She said her Grandmother
was very sweet and it was a huge trip to Madison back then but they
did ride the train and visited once in a while. It was always a big
family party when they went, they all had such fun together she
