Born in Oberpfannenstiel bei Bernsbach, Sachsen, Germany to Christian Gotthold and Christiane Henriette (Schuerer) Goethel. Death registration and church register indicates her date of birth as 18 July 1824, which differs by a month from the date on her tombstone.
Wife of Friederick August Weigel. Mother of Emil Friederick Weigel, Friederick August Weigel, Auguste Anna Cassler and Albin Herman Weigel.
Died in Aue, Sachsen, at the home of her daughter and probably buried in the Protestant Cemetery at Aue, but grave likely no longer exists due to the custom of reusing graves. Tombstone photo found among the effects of Karolina's granddaughter in America, courtesy of the late Richard Steinmeyer.
