Anna Katarina Emma Drees was born on June 8th, 1886, the first of Frederick and Anna Drees' children to be born in America.

She married Ben Maschman not long before her eighteenth birthday. They had been under some pressure to get married from Ben's mother, whom after losing a husband and her son marrying and starting a family of his own, was anxious to have a daughter-in-law to share with. Ben's mother moved in with them after their marriage and stayed until her death in 1918.

Ben and Anna farmed and raised their thirteen children on a farm two miles south and two miles west of Daykin, Nebraska. They stayed on the farm until August 1948.

Anna dled in 1974 and is buried in Saint John's Lutheran Cemetery in Daykin, Nebraska.

The German spelling of Maschmann is correct with two 'n's. Eventually, many of the family members would spell it using only one.
