“Henry” Hoener was born in Prussia and was orphaned at an early age. To avoid military conscription he emigrated to America at age 23, earning his way by shoveling coal for the six week-long voyage. He found his way to Gasconade County where he farmed and married Wilhelmine “Minna” Brinkman on March 13, 1871.
The German message on his gravestone translates, “After the sorrow of death and the rest of the grave, Jesus Christ will lead us into heaven.”
