He was baptized in Diedrichshagen, the main village of the parish on December 26, 1871.

The same church he got confirmed into the lutheran religion 15 years later on April 18, 1886.

It is also the same church he married Dorothea on October 23, 1896.

Below you find their marriage certificate. He is stated working as a cooper.

And you see those notes on the side? Those are my sources for the dates of death for Heinrich and Dorothea.

But going chronologically 😉

Heinrich and Dorothea had four children.

  • Anna Dorothea Christine Elisabeth * March 11, 1899

Also in the census of 1900, he is stated as a cooper living in Upahl, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany.

The 1919 census shows him living with his wife, parents, Anna and Frieda in Upahl.
