Dorothea Luman of Nebraska from zu Eichdorf

Given to me by ms. Merten

The sister of my Catharina Margaretha Luhmann.


Do you love getting church records. I do. It's like getting a gold mine. A reap of information worth their weight in gold.
My Catharina Margaretha Luhmann married Juergen Friedrich Meyer geb.* 1814. + died 1879.
I have the church records of her with her mother and father included. Only one child - Catharina Margaretha was listed. I received this information from the Nahrendorf church through an email. From Herr Bock's research.

It is interesting.

I think, I am missing the burial record number at the end. It will take me some time to find the original copy to see, if it was there, or just cut off. I do believe this record was emailed to me from the Nahrendorf church. Of course it was done by Herr Bock. He had not remembered my name as the one, who had requested the information before. So he had resent the records that I already had. It was too bad, cause I bet my records arrived a day or two later after he sent me the email of information. I had hoped to save him from having to look up something that he had already done a few years back.

It is interesting that the family name spelling starts out as Lumann. You know Mrs Schlaphof[f] also went by the spelling Luman. At least, that is how she is named at the cemetery. I did translate the church records. But, I have forgotten what I learned. So, I won't be able to use that translation for you right now. I will come back and do so. As soon as I get a chance.

Note: My other records Of the Luhmann family have already informed us of Johann Juergen Luhmann's parents. They were Juergen Heinrich Lumann and Catharina Elisabeth Gehrke. Johann Juergens godparents were his fathers sisters husbands. However, in older records the Seil family was mentioned as being from Lueben and Breese.

[ I haven't made any connections yet between those Seil and any other Seil name I have acquired. None of those in Iowa. Not Henry Seil, who married Marie Ahrens nor August William Seil, who married Annie Vogel.
Not Annie Seil, who married Herman Meyer.

The Gehrke son's marriage to Luhmann is the first time that I have seen the Gehrke name mentioned in my history of Luhman, or any of my Meyer ancestors. I think his father was Andreas Gehrke. [Previous post].
Note: We will see this information in the village of Duebbekold in Heinrich Borstelmans book.

It is interesting to me that Anna Maria's mother is a Brese from Nahrendorf. In the very early years there was a marriage to Luhmann by name Brese or Brase from Nahrendorf.

Notice the place of residence for Catharina Maria Harwegen is "Boetze". That is how it was spelled in the OFB Himbergen book written by Heinrich Porth and gunda Friesch. Bötze. We have been assuming it is suppose to be the same as Boitze, which is very close to Neetzendorf. As is Ahndorf, Finndorf or Findorf.

The god parents info has been a surprise. Ms. Harwegen is probably Harweg[e]. If I go back to Behrens - Meyer records, I will find a Harwege.

4. Kind: BEHRENS, Margaretha Magdalena (F] ev
* 16.05.1772 Neetzendorf = Boitze
~ 17.05 1772 Dahlenburg
Auszung aus dem Taufregister der ev.-luth. Kirchengemeinde Dahlenburg
Nr. 22 /1772
Margaretha Magdalena Behrens, Johann Juergen Behrens, Hauswirths in Neetzendorff, und Cathrina Dorothea Schultzen ehel. Tochter, is am 16ten May gebohren, getauft am 17ten.
Die Gevaattern sind:
1.) Margaretha Ilsabe Harweges,
2.) Anna Margareta Niebuhrs,
3.) Margaretha Magdalena Schultzen.


Probably a daughter of those.
Notice the Luers. In Behrens records a mention was of Luhrs.

And then we see this :

Eltern: Hauswirth Johann Christoph Reinecke in Nahrendorf
und dessen Ehefrau Anna Dorothee geborene Breese,
gest.den zweiten December Abends neun Uhr
an Altersschwaeche, begr.den 6. December 1867.
(Vorname des verstorbenen Ehemannes richtig nicht Heinrich Christoph, sondern Johann Juergen



It seems to switch husbands on me. I shall have to get a little help on that one from babelfish - Yahoo?
http://babelfish.yahoo.com/translate_txt


Parents: Hauswirth Johann Christoph Reinecke in Nahrendorf and its wife Anna Dorothee born Breese, gest. den second December of evening nine o'clock at age weakness, 6th December begr. den 1867. (First name of the deceased of husband correctly not Heinrich Christoph, but Johann Juergen).


It is amazing that church records could make a recording in the books of the wrong spouse to a woman!!! wow!

I might have to go through my Luhmann records transcribed from the church archives records by Herr Kregel; and see if it is recorded any different from this. I don't believe there are any errors at that spot.

I just love church records. I went through this one briefly to cover the little details. Soon, I would like to cover some of the same surnames. As a result of this church document, I am now thinking that the Johann Juergen Meyer family and the residence members of the Behrens family [hauswirths] at Neetzendorf had contact and connections with hauswirths at Eichdorf. After all Landowners sons had to marry other landowners daughters. If the ones are all taken at your village, wouldn't you have to look to other villages?

That's enough for the day.
Thanks for hanging in there.
just me,
JO

  1. I have found Harwege tree of this area of Germany belonging to farming family in the new ways. Along with the farm they publish the farm ownership history which reflects the family history. Coming soon. Watch for it.
