Notes: Artist last name after marriage has been anglicized to “Baxter” from Biersteker ; The artist has several birth dates listed for her but there was another person named similar born in 1881 which we believe is wrongly mixed up with the artist ; Immigrated to the United States in 1902 ; The artist retained her maiden name after her marriage in 1926 according to an article ;
