EMILIE ZIOCK

Emilie - was born 1 June 1846 in Hattingen, Germany & was the daughter of Heinrich Ziock.  Emilie had a deformity - she was hunchbacked.   Emilie never married. She died at 1700 S. 10th street, ward 8 - 16 Dec. 1915 in St. Louis, Missouri.  Cause of death: intercostal rheumatism - acute pericarditis.  She is buried in New Pickers Cemetery.

Lilian Ziock Palmer told me that they always used to call Emilie Tantemeekin.  I'm not sure if I'm spelling the "meekin" part of the name correctly.  Aunt Lil didn't know how to spell it & didn't know what it meant.  Tante is German for aunt but I still don't know what the "meekin" part means.
