January 24 – Wilhelm Hermann Heinrich Karl Hagedorn

On January 24, 1848 James W. Marshall finds a gold nugget near Sutter’s Mill. This incident marks the starting point of the Californian Gold Rush.

The first Apple McIntosh, the McIntosh 128 is presented to the public on January 24, 1984.

I have another “cousin bait meets today in my family tree” post. I would like to introduce you to Wilhelm Hermann Heinrich Karl HAGEDORN, my 3rd cousin 3x removed.

Wilhelm was born on January 24, 1901 in Boienhagen, grandduchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany. He was the third of six children of the farm owner Joachim Karl Johann HAGEDORN and his wife Wilhelmine Maria Dorothea née WARNKE.

He received his christening on February 17, 1901 in the church of Diedrichshagen, the main village of the parish. In the same church he got confirmed on March 28, 1915, in the midth of WWI.

The 1919 census shows him living with his parents, two sisters and one sister on the family farm in Boienhagen.

Are there any HAGEDORN of Boienhagen or Diedrichshagen out there?
