Elinore Boyd Altreuter is pictured here with her son, Louis B.
Elinore Boyd was
born in October 18, 1855. The spelling of her first name comes from
the family records of two of her children but is spelled Eleanor in her
daughter's Bible. Her name appears in the 1920 and 1930 census and in
her death notice in the New York Times as Eleanor Altreuter.
Elinore was born in Manhattan as was her father,
according to the census reports. Her mother was born in England. We do
not know her parents' names.
The only other mention of her is from a newspaper
article in the Brooklyn Eagle dated November 14, 1901. She is listed
among the members of the St. George's Protestant Episcopal Church participating
in a church fair.
She married Louis Altreuter on November 3, 1875
and had four children:
Mary Emma Altreuter
William Boyd Altreuter
Louis Boyd Altreuter
Royal Washington Altreuter
She died in June of 1936 and is buried in Evergreen
Cemetery in Brooklyn, NY.
