Meta Buermeyer

1882-1966

      I haven't come across much in the way of information regarding Meta Buermeyer. I can tell you she appeared to enjoy traveling abroad. She sailed to Italy in 1908 and in 1920, 1921 and 1924 she traveled to France. In each case she was listed as single. Her place of residence was listed as Brooklyn. She was a bridesmaid at her uncle's wedding, Henry (Harry) Ernest Buermeyer, on June 10th, 1896.
