And on my family tree Helene Dorothea Maria DÜBROCK, the wife of my 2nd cousin 4 times removed was born on November 29, 1857 in Wotenitz, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany.
She was the second of three daughters of Johann Joachim DÜBROCK and Katharina Margarethe Dorothea FRAHM, farmers from Wotenitz.
The 1867 census shows her living with her parents, her two sisters, a servant and a farm hand on their farm in Wotenitz.
On February 1, 1878 she married Heinrich Johann Joachim REUTER in Grevesmühlen, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany.
I couldn’t find her in the 1900 census yet, although I found her husband.
