The Fort Alamo in San Antonio, Texas is conquered by the Mexicans lead by General Antonio López de Santa Anna on March 6, 1836. Almost all of the 200 defenders (among them William Travis, James Bowie and Davy Crocket) who held the Fort for 13 days got killed during the attacks.
Okay, I admit it. My entry for today in my family tree is not so fancy or heroic ;)
We celebrate the birth of the husband of my 2nd cousin 4x removed Dorothea Henriette Catharina REUTER.
He married Dorothea on September 28, 1888 in Diedrichshagen, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany.
In this wedding certificate, Carl is stated as “a fee farmer’s son” from Börzow. His father Johann Heinrich HOLST is already deceased.
So far I didn’t find any children for the couple.
Carl died on August 28, 1919 in Upahl, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany and got laid to rest on September 2, 1919 on the church cemetary of Diedrichshagen, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany.
