Tombstone Tuesday - Hulda Polsfuss

This is the tombstone of Hulda A. Polsfuss located at Westfield East Cemetery, Westfield, Marquette, Wisconsin. She was the mother of Alma Marie (Polsfuss) Schauer and she is my 2nd Great Grandmother.

According to my notes, Hulda A. Schulke (or Schuelke) was born 1866 in Posen, Prussia to Wilhelm and Caroline Schulke. She was naturalized in 1876. She married Gottlieb Polsfuss July 7, 1885 and they had at least 8 children. She died in 1946 and was buried at Westfield East Cemetery near her son Edward, who died in 1927 and her husband Gottlieb.

The tombstone is transcribed as follows:
Hulda A.
1866 -- 1946
