Although her surname is Wilson on the certificate, I am quite certain this is our Bertha Nowasky, who was born around 1867 (not 1871). Our Bertha married Albert Kuntze in 1885. Albert died in 1897. I can only guess that she remarried after Albertís death in 1897, but I have found no evidence of that.

Her mother's surname appears to be Cechon. Curiously, Bertha's marriage certificate states that she was born in Ceckin Germany.

Although the informant's name is barely legible, it does say sister. Her only known sister was Amelia Nowasky who married Lawrence Leier.
