DOB: July 26, 1907

Parentage & birth family uncertain
I cannot tell you much about Nellie. We do not have her obituary. Below is what we do know:
Nellie married Alexander A Maass around 1928 after the death of Alexander’s first wife, Louisa Priess Maass, who died in 1919.
After Alexander A Maass’ death in 1955, Nellie married August Freerking on April 18, 1956. August Freerking’s first wife, Lydia Maass, died Nov. 29, 1944.
August Freerking was the brother of Henry J. Freerking, who is interred in the mausoleum.
It has been mentioned that Nellie and Lydia Maass Freerking, the first wife of August Freerking, were cousins, but we cannot confirm that connection at this time.
If you can help us identify Nellie’s family, please let us know.
Nellie’s known family members also resting in the mausoleum are:
Second Wife to: Alexander A. Maass
Alexander A Maass’s first wife is also in the mausoleum: Louise M (Priess) Maass
