September 1 – Marcus Heinrich KRUSE

Looking on my family tree for today, we meet Marcus Heinrich KRUSE, a cottager and day laborer from the grandduchy Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany.

He was born on September 1, 1778 in Botelsdorf as the son of Hans Joachim KRUSE and Catharina Magdalena née PARBS.

I didn’t find out yet when he married Magdalene Elisabeth RUNGE but between 1806 and 1818 I have four children documented for them, which were all born in Botelsdorf:

  • Johann Heinrich (born abt. December 1806 / died January 16, 1869)
  • Hans Heinrich (born abt. August 1809 / died February 16, 1853)
  • Joachim (born February 2, 1814)
  • Katharina Elisabeth (born abt. January 1818 / died December 6, 1907)

The 1819 census of Mecklenburg-Schwerin shows the family still living in Botelsdorf.

When his daughter Katharina married in 1843, he was stated as cottager living in Sievershagen, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany.

Marcus died on November 16, 1851 of gout in Sievershagen and got laid to rest on November 21, 1851 in Diedrichshagen.
