February 21, 1916 is the day one of the Battle of Verdun in World War I. This battle should last til December 18, 1916.
On my family tree, we meet my 2nd cousin 4x removed August Joachim Johannes FREYTAG who died on February 21, 1893 in Diedrichshagen, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany.
His father Joachim Heinrich Claus FREYTAG registered his death with the officials on the same day.
August was born on December 6, 1891 and received his christening on February 21, 1891 in Diedrichshagen, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany. As far as I know by now he is the second son of Joachim Heinrich Claus FREYTAG and his wife Caroline Auguste Elisabeth née KABEN. But I have a gap of 7 years between the two sons, therefore I guess there are more children which I just have to find.
August got laid to rest on the church cemetary of Diedrichshagen on February 25, 1893.
