Walter Holder:
Bit of an oddity here. Both listed as being born in Germany, yet Germany didn't exist as a single country in the 1840s. It would have been Bavaria, Prussia or some such. I guess the family couldn't ascertain where, resources such as we have now not being available back then.
E Janette Joubert:
The unified German Empire (Deutsches Reich) was proclaimed on 18 January 1871.
The use of "Deutschland" for the country was well-established by the time this gravestone was carved & erected, 1902 or soon after.
