June 29 – Dorothea Louise Christiane Lenschow

Happy Birthday Go-Mizunoo, 108th Emperor of Japan, born June 29, 1596!

And happy Birthday Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, best known as the author of “The Little Prince“, born on June 29, 1900!

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.
