Somehow the day yesterday went by so fast that I couldn’t publish my daily blog. But of course, I don’t want to keep November 18 from you 😉
November 18, 1841 was the day of the Battle of Ingavi. The Bolivian Army under General José Balliván Segurola defeated the Peruvian intruders headed by their President Agustín Gamarra. This battle ended the Peruvian-Bolivian War.
And on my family tree?
On November 18, 1879 the widowed brickmaker Gottlieb Christof KÄHLER died in Gostorf, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany at the age of 71 years. His son Carl registered his death one day later with the authorities as you can see above.
According to his age when he died, Gottlieb was born abt. 1808 in Zülow, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany as the son of the brickmaker Burghard KÄHLER and Sophia STERNBERG.
Gottlieb was married to Margarethe Sophia Elisabeth TRETOW. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find their wedding entry yet. But I know of 5 children they had between 1840 and 1854 via the 1867 census which shows the family living in Gostorf.
I didn’t find the church record for his death yet. When I find that I can add when he was laid to rest.
