On my family tree, we meet the wife of my first cousin 5x removed Johann David Ernst FRAHM.
Maria Dorothea Anna TRETOW is born on March 26, 1832 in Kastahn, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany.
As far as I know so far she was the first daughter of the farmer Johann Joachim TRETOW and his wife Sophia née KOTH.
On February 9, 1855 she married my cousin in Diedrichshagen, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany.
Between 1856 and 1875 the couple had 10 children.
This 1867 census record shows Johann, Maria and six of their children and six farmhands/servants living in Boienhagen:
At the time of the 1900 census she is stated as widowed and as a visitor in Alt Jassewitz (compared to a permanent resident).
Maria died on July 21, 1912 in Boienhagen and she got laid to rest in Diedrichshagen on July 24, 1912.
