Cecilie Marie Georgy Moore Krueger was born in Brooklyn, New York October 7, 1891. She graduated from Columbia University in New York City in 1912. At some point prior to 1920, she met and married Theodore Henry Carl Krueger who was born in Nebraska in 1889. The two of them lived, for a time, in Manhattan and at some point, prior to 1930, moved to the Putney section of Stratford.

The Krueger house was located at 5590 Main Street which house is adjacent to the Putney Cemetery. In 1933 Mrs. Krueger gave birth to her only child, Theodore. She lived the remainder of her life in this house and passed away June 18, 1991.

Former Stratford Historical Society President, Elden Dustin, and his wife, interviewed Mrs. Kreuger in her home in Putney in 1982. Mrs. Kreuger described life in Putney up through the World War II era. She related her experiences of living next to the Boothe brothers. The recording ends suddenly likely due to the cassette tape filling up.
