Rosa Marie Klaus, born in 1877 in Steinschonau, Austria. I know very little about her family. Her father was Gustav Klaus and her mother was Karolina Kraft Klaus. They had one boy, August, and five girls, Anna, twin girls names unknown, Rosa Marie, and a younger girl, Beatricel. I believe Rosa Marie Klaus worked as a fill-in artist in one of the local glass factories.

Her sister, Anna, married Josef Zinke about 1893. Josef and his brother, Franz Zinke were glass decorators in Steinschonau. They all eventually immigrated to Pennsylvania, USA, where they worked in glass factories.
