Rosa von Tannenburg

Born: Au­gust 15, 1768, Din­kels­bühl, Ger­ma­ny.

Died: Sep­tem­ber 3, 1854, Augs­burg, Ger­ma­ny, of cho­le­ra.

Buried: Origin­al­ly in the ce­m­et­ery for cler­ics of the Augs­burg Ca­thed­ral. When the ce­me­te­ry closed, the cler­ics’ cof­fins were trans­ferred to the new ce­me­te­ry of St. Mi­chael’s on Her­mann­straße in Augs­burg. The site was hea­vi­ly dam­aged in World War II, though, and the lo­ca­tion of Schmid’s grave was lost. To­day, St Mi­chael’s Ce­me­te­ry has a com­mem­or­a­tive plaque in von Schmid’s hon­or.
