Here is the sad death notice (above) and the death entry in the church books (below) for my 2nd Great-grandfather, Leonhard “Heinrich” Lämmle, who was born 9 December 1836 in Brackenheim and died 11 June 1868 in Grossgartach of pleurisy. Heinrich was only 31 years, 6 months old, leaving a young wife named Maria Magdalena Justine, and two sons.
Johann Heinrich Wilhelm (age 5) was born 3 Jan 1863, and Herman Albert was born 21 July 1867, not quite a year before their father died. They had a sister named Maria Katharine Louise who was born 1 Jan 1865 and died 4 March 1865. Mother Maria never remarried. She lived to be 63 years old, dying in Grossgartach on 16 July 1897.
Johann Heinrich Wilhelm Lämmlen was my Grandpa Rudolf’s father.
