… who doesn’t know that world famous chorus? It’s the Beatles’ song “All you need is love”. Published on June 30, 1967.
And since “Love” is this week’s theme for the 52 Ancestors challenge from Amy Crow at www.nostorytoosmall.com why not picking that date?
June 30, 1846 is the birthday of the wife of my 3rd great grand uncle Gottlieb Carl Christian FREYTAG.
Catharina Maria Elisabeth EVERT was born that day in Upahl, grand duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany. She was the daughter of the fee farmer Johann Joachim EVERT and his wife Wilhelmina Margaretha Elisabeth née WARNKE from Upahl.
Catharina received her christening on July 5, 1846 in Diedrichshagen, the main village in the parish.
29 years later, it is the same church she marries my 3rd great grand uncle in. They said their vows on April 9, 1875. From that day on she would live with Gottlieb on the family’s farm in Diedrichshagen.
I actually wonder, if that was the first marrige for both of them. Elisabeth (her calling name) was already 29 years would have been quite “old” for marrying the first time. And Gottlieb was even 10 years her senior. Mental note: Barbara check that ;)
So far I couldn’t find any children for Gottlieb and Elisabeth. And since Gottlieb died 3 years following their wedding I only have a short period to look for them.
I don’t know yet what happend to Elisabeth after Gottlieb died.
