December 27 – Wilhelm Martin Franz Stüwe

Christmas is over, all the food is eaten, time to recover and prepare for the end of the year 😉

Let’s see what we have on my family tree for this day. On December 27, 1882 the husband of my great grand aunt Wilhelm Martin Franz STÜWE is born in Teterow, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany.

As you can see above he received his christening on January 6, 1881. He was the fifth child of the day labourer Johann Friedrich Heinrich STÜWE and his wife Johanna Dorothea Luise née Asmuß. 

According to the cenus the family moved to Bristow by 1900. 

On November 1, 1904 he married my great grand aunt Anna Maria Frieda SCHMIDT in Grubenhagen, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany. The couple had 2 children I know of so far. One son born in 1905 and a daughter born in 1906. Both of the children were already born in Nienhagen, which means the family moved again. 

The 1919 census shows the family living with Anna’s mother (in column 3 you see “Schwiegermutter” (mother-in-law)) in Nienhagen.
