March 7, 321: Per decree does the roman Emperor Constantine The Great declare the “dies solis” (Sunday) as day of rest.
March 7, 1897: The physician John Harvey Kellog serves his patients at the sanatorium in Battle Creek (Michigan) for the first time cornflakes which he invented together with his brother Will Keith Kellog.
I just have one event again on my family tree for this day.
Anna Catharina LÜTH dies on March 7, 1881 in Bonnhagen, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany.
Her son-in-law Peter SCHLEUS registered her death with the officials one day later.
Anna was born on July 17, 1806 in Vitense, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany. She was the fourth of five children born into the marriage of Johann LÜTH and his wife Anna Maria née STEIN.
The 1819 census shows her living with her parents, two sisters, one brother and her maternal grandfather in Vitense. That document also provided me with her exact birth date.
I don’t have the exact date for her wedding with Heinrich BÖTTCHER. But on May 8, 1840 their daughter Engel Marie is born in Bonnhagen.
As far as I know, this is not the daughter married to Peter SCHLEUS who registered Anna’s death. That means there has to be at least one other daughter for the couple.
I put it already on my to-do list – which is getting longer and longer every day 😉
