Elizabeth & Johanna Renner

Elizabeth and Johanna Renner were the infant daughters of Gottlieb Renner, the Lutheran schoolmaster and his wife Marie. The location of these graves is unknown. Gottlieb Renner taught at the Neu Mecklenburg school at Westgarthtown from 1855-61. He also conducted church and funeral services when Pastor Goethe from Trinity German Lutheran Church, East Melbourne was unavailable. Two other infant Renner children are buried in the Melbourne General Cemetery. The Renner family returned to Germany during the 1860s.
