Magdalena Maria Dorothea KORT is born on July 16, 1849 in Welzin, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany.

Her father Johann Joachim Heinrich KORT was a fee farmer in Welzin and married to Magdalena Sophia née ISENHAGEN.

On November 18, 1870 she married the blacksmith Johann Friedrich Gottlieb PÜSTOW from Groß Eichsen, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany in Damshagen in the same grandduchy.

I found six children for the couple so far, five sons and a daughter – born between 1872 and 1886. All the children have been born in Upahl, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany where Johann already lived when they married.

Magdalena died on November 6, 1918 in Upahl of the flu. She got laid to rest in Diedrichshagen on November 12, 1918.
