iii. ANNA MARGARETHA "MAGGIE" BOSSE was born on 18 Aug 1854 in Baltimore City, Maryland,
USA. She died on 04 Jan 1923 in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois, USA.
She married George Cline on 16 Aug 1881 in Elkhart IN. She was born in Maryland and
both of her parents were from Germany.
According to the 1900 Census, Geor.ge J Cline was an inventor that was born in the
state of New York.
The 1900 Census indicates he had two daughters.
Mary A. Cline was born in 1873 in Indiana, her father was born in New York, and her
mother was born in Ireland.
Anna Frances Cline was born in 1880 in Indiana, her father was born in New York, and
her mother was born in Ireland.
The 1900 Census also indicates that Margaret Bosse gave birth to 4 children
and none were alive at the time of the 1900 Census. This leads to the conclusion that Margaret Bosse was the step-mother
of Mary A & Anna Frances Cline.
The 1910 Census in Chicago, Illinois shows Margaret Cline is a widow living with
a widowed step-daughter named Anna Tennis who was born in Indiana in 1880. Anna's husband is Henry J. "Harry"
The 1920 Census in Chicago, Illinois indicates that Margaret Bosse is a widow
living with Victor Trudeau and his wife Anna Frances Cline Tennis Trudeau.
The 1920 Census indicates that Anna's mother was born in Ireland, also.
It appears that Margaret Bosse Cline is not the biological mother of either Mary
A Cline or Anna Frances Cline Tennis Trudeau and produced no live children of here own.
It is believed that she is buried in an unmarked grave beside her parents in the
Goshen family burial plot.

Barnhardt Bosse and Elizabeth Schneider Marriage Record
Bernard Bosse & Elizabeth Schneider -
Marriage record 24 Jul 1849. Married in the German Speaking - St Alphonsus Roman Catholic Church in Baltimore,
Baltimore, Maryland. Witnesses are Joseph Adam & Bernadine Zephardt. (?) hard to read.
I copied the marriage record page below from
Ancestry.com from the Heiser Family Tree. I later was directed to the on-line Maryland Catholic Church Records
where I was able to download a higher resolution copy and clip out the portion dealing with this marriage. I photo-shopped
the clip which I posted below. It's still almost impossible to read all of the entry as it appears to have been wedged
between an existing entry.
The 1850 Federal Census for Ward 2, Baltimore, Maryland shows Elizabeth's husband Bernhardt
& his older brother, Anton as both coopers and living on the same street. Bernhardt & family are # 409 and Anton &
family are # 413. Both of their first daughters have been born. Notice the last name is shown as "Bush" instead
of "Bose". However it's definately the right family.

The 1960 Federal Census shows Bernhardt and Elizabeth living in Clifton, Greene County, OH with
their children. Note the last name is spelled "BeBosse", likely because he gave his name as Bernhardt B. (for Ben) Bosse.
