My fourth great grandmother Catharina Dorothea DAEHN, born 1786. I cannot yet prove exactly when. I only have her age from her death entry.
On November 3, 1811 she married the day laborer Franz Joachim Hinrich Christian SCHAPER in Mustin, grandduchy of Sachsen-Lauenburg (today on the territory of Schleswig-Holstein), Germany. The couple had seven children I know of:
- Hans Joachim Hinrich 1812-1812
- Johann Joachim Heinrich 1814
- Anna Catharina Elisabeth 1816
- Franz Joachim Hinrich 1818
- Anna Catharina Dorothea 1820-1846
- Johann Jacob Hinrich 1823-1882
- Johann Heinrich Friedrich 1826-1854
Following a stroke, Catharina died on April 15, 1847 in Mustin and got laid to rest on the church cemetary on April 19, 1847
And then there is my 3rd great grandaunt Kathrin Magdalena ORTH, of whom I don’t know that much. She was born on January 11, 1786 in Mönkhagen, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany as fifth of eight children into the marriage of the day laborer Hans Hinrich Christopher OHRT (yes, the spelling is different from entry to entry) and Ann Malen JÄGERS.
She received her christening on January 15, 1786 in Zarpen, the main village of the parish.
And that is the last trace I have of her.
