March 29 – Friederike Maria Magdalena Kähler

During the War of Roses Edward of York wins the battle of Towton against the Lancastrians lead by Henry Beaufort, 3rd Duke of Somerset on March 29, 1461. Three months later Edward of York will be crowned as King Edward IV. of England.

On March 29, 1648 swedish settlers found the first settlement at the Delaware and name it “New Sweden“.

On my family tree we meet Friederike Maria Magdalena KÄHLER, a farmer’s daughter born on March 29, 1854 in Gostorf, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany as the youngest of five children to Gottlieb Christof KÄHLER and his wife Margarethe Sophie Elisabeth née TRETOW.

The 1867 cenus shows her living in her parent’s household in Gostorf.

In 1880, on October 29 she married Joachim Peter Matthias (sometimes called Thies) CALLIES

Of Thies I only know that he was a day labourer from Grevesmühlen and that he had one younger brother called Johann.

The 1900 census states that they moved to Büttlingen in the parish of Diedrichshagen, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany.

That’s also where Friederike died on January 9, 1914. She got laid to rest in Diedrichshagen on January 14, 1914.
