1/2/2018 - Caroline Konold Haury

At age ten, Caroline Konold (1844-1938) came to Collinsville from Germany with her parents, the youngest of ten children. She married Ulrich Haury on February 14, 1864, two years after he emigrated from Germany. He was employed by the Collins Company and later ran a very successful grocery store. As a result, Caroline had many connections to the business life of Collinsville, which included many fellow immigrants.

Haury was a member of the Collinsville Congregational Church. She had a son and a daughter. One news report called her “a woman of strength of character and of a loveable disposition that endeared her to a large circle of friends.”

She underwent surgery at Hartford Hospital and died there after a month’s stay. The pallbearers were six of her nephews.

Caroline Haury is buried in the Village Cemetery, Collinsville.
