From Most Holy Redeemer Cem., Baltimore, MD:
Braun, Magreta, 2/9/1821? - 12/22/1891, section D
Braun, Moritz, 1850 - 1928, same stone as Josephine, section D
Braun, Josephine, 1847 - 1930, same stone as Moritz, section D
Seeing as how this date is only off by a "1" from the birthdate of Anna Margaretha Emge Braun (2/19/1821), and this moritz being the correct age to be the nameless "M" person from the 1860 census, I am pretty sure that this is the correct family. The other 3 children are not mentioned in this cemetery transcription, but may have lived elsewhere, or in the case of the daughters Mary and Barbara, gotten married.
