Hanna Jacoba and Carl Esaias Rønnebergs headstones, an short story by Per Rønneberg Bremnes

Hanna Jacoba Hoffmann (1868-1905) and Carl Esaias Rønneberg (1854-1912) headstones were made by the Danish sculptor Anne Marie Carl-Nielsen (1863-1945). She probably was in close contact with Hanna Jacoba's mother, Karen Marie Bøe (1838-1908). This connection is learned from a letter between Anne Marie and Carl Esaias dated July 1908. In the letter it appears that the Hanna Jacobas headstone was not finished. Further more we read from the same letter that Carl Esaias had already ordered his own headstone.

Why the Rønneberg family used an Danish sculptor has been a question researched by the Odense Museum, among others. The answer to that question can possibly be found through Hanna Jacoba's father. His name was Frederik Christian Steenbuch Hoffmann (1827-1887). Even if he was born in Norway both of his surnames could have originated in Denmark. If that is the case, I am sure we have the connection between the Rønneberg family and the sculptor.

Hanna Jacobas headstones was placed at Ålesund church by the sculptor in 1910. Carl Esaias headstone was placed at the church in 1914. A great monument to the man who laid down the foundation stone of the Ålesund church.

Hanna Jacoba og Carl Esaias Rønnebergs gravstener, en kort historie av Per Rønneberg Bremnes

Hanna Jacoba Hoffmann (1868-1905) og Carl Esaias Rønneberg (1854-1912) gravstener var laget av den danske skulptøren Anne Marie Carl-Nielsen (1863-1945). Hun hadde muligens god kontakt med Hanna Jacobas mor, Karen Marie Bøe (1838-1908). Dette kan forståes av et brev mellom Anne Marie og Carl Esaias i juli 1908. I brevet fremgår det at Hanna Jacobas gravsten ikke er ferdig. Videre kan det leses av det same brev at Carl Esaias allerede hadde bestilt sin egen gravsten.

Hvorfor Rønneberg familien brukte en dansk sculptor har vært et spørsmål for Odense museum. Svaret fines kanskje i Hanna Jacobas far. Hans navn var Frederik Christian Steenbuch Hoffmann (1827-1887). Selv om han er født I Norge, kan begge hans etternavn ha sin opprinnelse I Danmark. Skulle dette være tilfelle, er jeg rimelig sikker på at vi har funnet forbindelsen mellom Rønneberg familien og skulptøren.

Hanna Jacobas gravsten ble oppstilt ved Ålesund kirke av skulptøren i 1910. Carl Esaias gravsten ble oppstilt i 1914. Et flott monument over mannen som la ned grunnstenen til Ålesund kirke.

They are buried at ”Vestre kirkegård” on Ålesund kirke. On Hannas grave the inscription is from Psalm 61-V. On Carl Esaias it is 23 – V
