Caroline Anna Kohler

She was baptized in the Catholic Church in Marksville, LA on April 10 1897.  She was a truly beautiful woman, as can be seen in this photo of her with her eldest child Evans Martin.

She and her youngest child (a girl) were brutally murdered by her husband in a drunken rage. She is buried in the cemetery behind the Catholic Church in Hessmer, LA. Her other children were separated and did not know of each other's existence until much later. Her tragic story is described here but be warned – it is very harrowing and upsetting.
