We go way back in time for our historical events for today.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t trace my family that far back in time.. so please move roughly 1900 years ahead in time with me 😉
On February 5, 1917 Fritz Heinrich August EVERT died in Grevesmühlen, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany. He died of a stroke being just 57 years old. On his death certificate you can see that his day of death was originally wrongly stated with February 4 and corrected afterwards to February 5.
He was born on April 13, 1859 in Upahl, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany as the eighth of ten children of Hans Joachim Heinrich EVERT, a cottager and his wife Catharina Maria LEU.
Between 1867 and 1886 he moved to Hamburg, Germany working for the Railway company. On October 8, 1886 he married Helene Elisabeth Maria KÖRNER in his home parish: Diedrichshagen, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany. Also the family of the bride lived there.
While working for the railway company the family moved around a lot.

Their first child was born 1890 in Hamburg. The next two children I’ve found have been born 1894 and 1895 in Büchen, duchy of Lauenburg, Germany where he got transfered to working for the railway company.
In 1905 when his second son died, the family lived in Hemelingen which is close to Bremen, Germany (abt 200 km west close to the North Sea).
1914 his third son died while the family lived in Berlin, Germany.
Between 1914 and 1917 he retired and returned to his home area, settling down in the next bigger village Grevesmühlen, where he died.
But his dead body got transfered to his home parish where he got laid to rest on February 10, 1917.
