We have two historical events for January 8, 1959:
- Fidel Castro reaches Havanna and achieved the final victory of the revolution on Cuba… and …
- Charles de Gaulle becomes first Président of the French Fifth Republic
And I have a “cousin bait” meets “brick wall” post for today.
At the time I write about, Staßfurt belonged to the province Saxony:
My great grand aunt Louise RIBBE is born there on January 8, 1868. She was the younger sister of my great grandmother Agnes Clara RIBBE. You’ve met her in my blog about her here.
Louise and Agnes had four more siblings, of which I don’t have any exact dates. Louise’s birthday was the only one, Agnes’ daughter could remember.
Her father Gottfried RIBBE, a local brickmaker was married to Johanne Lorenz.
It is a short blogpost today, since that is all I know from Louise. Any RIBBEs out there who could help me?
