 Jackson's Baptismal Gown was made by

was married to Hermann Roehl 
who drowned in a boating accident in 1913. 
They had four children.
 Dora Roehl was their daughter (1893-1974).
Dora married Martin Koschmann. 
Grandma Anna was a seamstress
 and made the gown for the baptism 
of her granddaughter- Helen. 
Helen Koschmann was born in1928.
The gown was then worn for baptism day 
by her son Peter Meier (b.1956).
Then grandson Daniel Meier (b. 1985)
and now worn by Jackson Meier in 2016.
The great news shared with the
 St. Matthew's School Community.
