The house and farm in Kornelimuenster was confiscated by the German nazi regime and Fritz Klaber, her son-in-law inherited all or a part of the estate which was settled in a post-WWII restitution settlement.

Source: German Federal Archive:

At least in the case of the December 11, 1941 transport from Düsseldorf, the train was composed of third class passenger cars for the Jews and a second class passenger car for the guards. Apparently efforts were made to keep the train heated. Source:

German Federal Archive: erroneously mentions Dortmund as the place of transport for Margarethe Kaufmann, geb. Kahn.
In the Riga Memory Book under the name-lists of killed people, Margarethe Kaufmann, geb. Kahn is listed as being on the Duesseldorf Transport.
This seems to be more acceptable, as her last registered address was with her daughter and grandson so they were deported together.

Age 56

Date of Death is after December 11, 1941.
