Note: Given the 20-year age difference between Hermann and Elizabeth, and the fact that Anna and Hermann did not have children, Lizzie was like a daughter as well as a sister, especially since she was born after Hermann left Gedern. Hermann dies suddenly in 1889 of a heart attack (and Anna moves to 815 N. Capitol St); Anna lives for 20 more years, leaving money to all her Stiebeling nieces and nephews in her 1906 will, and naming Lizzie and her brothers as her major heirs. Lizzie marries Charles Bischoff in 1882. Sister Sophia, who had been living in New York with sister Mary, moves to DC and marries cousin Philip Stiebeling who works in Hermannís restaurant; Sophie dies young in 1891 (committing suicide). Brother Edward died suddenly in 1878, and sister Riecke will die circa 1886.
