Altreuter was the oldest of the four siblings. She was known as May to
much of her family. In her own Bible she calls herself both Mary and
May. It appears that Mary Emma was her birth name but she often used
May. We are grateful to her grandson for providing photocopies of her
handwritten family records from inside her Bible.
Mary married Burgess F. Morhous on August 9,1904
at St. George's PE Church in Brooklyn, NY.. They had two children, Burgess
F.Morhous, Jr and John A Morhous. More of the Morhous genealogy is available
elsewhere on the web. Mary has several living descendants.
Any information about the family would be appreciated and can be sent
to Ken Altreuter at
