I chose two birthdays as historical dates for today since I have a sad event on my family tree for this day.
We mourn the death of Dorothea Louise Christiane LENSCHOW who died on June 29, 1916 in Grevesmühlen, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany.
Dorothea was born on August 25, 1855 as second of (so far) three known children of Johann Heinrich LENSCHOW, a farmer in Sievershagen, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany and his wife Katharina Elisabeth née KRUSE.
On June 22, 1883 Dorothea married Hans Heinrich Christian BAUMANN, a tailor from Groß Pravtshagen, now living in Wotenitz, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany – a widow with one daughter just six months old.
So far I didn’t find any children for Dorothea and Hans, but I am sure it is just a matter of time.
