1765 - 1978
After Bernhardus’ death, his widow was to bear another child, at a time where Bernhardus’ daughter from his first marriage was already 80 years old. Even during the time shortly before his death, Bernhardus did not need glasses to read, and he is said to have taken a 2-hour walk on his final day. He was married four times. One of these marriages alone, to Anna Margarethe Baroness of Zinnenberg (*1930), yielded seven children. The family’s gravestone can be found at the Merano parish church.
