Jeannetta Catherine Mahrt was born January 29, 1892 in Dayton, Ohio.  Her parents are August J. Marht, born June 1860 in Germany and Ellen Fulwiler, born May 1860 in Tennessee.  Her marries married on May 29, 1884 and eight children were born from their union.  Maria, Joseph, Lizzie, Jeannetta, Electa, Daniel, William and August.

In 1900, the family is living on High street in Dayton, Ohio.  August is working as a cabinetmaker.  Jeanetta is 8 years old and listed as going to school with her siblings Joseph and Lizzie.  Later in the year on October 28, 1900, Jeanetta’s mother Ellen dies.

Ellen Fulwiler Mahrt’s Obituary

Mrs. Ellen Mahrt, wife of August Mahrt, and daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fulwiler, died Sunday at her home on Potomac street.  The deceased was 40 years of age.  The funeral will be held on Tuesday morning; services at the family residence at 8 o’clock, and at Holy Trinity church at 8:30.  Burial will be private at Calvary cemetery.  Ben Westbrock.

Mr. Mahrt has been in the employ of the Stomps-Burkhardt company for the past 25 years, until about three weeks ago, when he was discharged without any apparent reason.  This, added to the loss of a good wife, makes his affliction all the more sad.  He was held in high esteem by his fellow-workmen, who extend to him their sincerest sympathy in his bereavement.
