The French discoverer Robert Cavalier de La Salle is the first European to reach the mouth of the Mississippi river on April 7, 1682.
And we stay with the French ;) The waiter Maxime Gaillard opens the today’s famous Restaurant Maxime’s in Paris today in 1893.
And I just have a short blogpost for today.
My 2nd cousin 3x removed Peter Iben Friedrich KRANZ was born on April 7, 1870 in Schlutup (today part of Lübeck), Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. His father registered his birth two days later with the authorities.
He was the only son I could find so far for the fisherman Hans Jürgen KRANZ and his wife Anna Dorothe née STEFFEN.
Unfortunately, Peter didn’t live a long and healthy life. He died being three months old on June 16, 1870 at 7pm in his parents’ home.
