Anna was the child of Martin and Louisa Mader.
Sometime before 1904 she became the wife of N. Gehr and they lived in St. Paul, Minnesota. Anna probably went to Minneapolis to visit her older sister Angeline and stayed in the area. She was still living in St. Paul when her brother Willard died in 1941.
In 1929 Anna was a glazier for a company in St. Paul and lived at 163 State St. Her husband apparently had died before that time. (1929 was the only year Anna was found in the City Directory. She was the only one listed with the name Gehr.)
