Susanna Widenmaier b. 31 December 1824, Grossgartach


Susanna Widenmaier is my 2nd Great-grandmother.  She was born on this day in 1824 in Grossgartach, the daughter of Johann Gottfried Widenmaier and Agnes Johanna Kaiser.

Here is her 1824 birth entry:Widenmaier, Susanna b. 1824

Susanna married Johann Jakob Schaefer 17 June 1845 in Grossgartach.  Here is their marriage entry:Schaefer, Joh Jakob & Susanna Widenmaier m. 1845Schaefer, Joh Jakob & Susanna Widenmaier m. 1845.1

Susanna and Johann Jakob had 7 children:  Christof Wilhelm Schaefer b. 1846, d. 1899 was their firstborn (he’s my Great-grandfather).  His siblings are Katharina Friederika b. 1847, d. 1924; Carl Friedrich b. 1848, d. ?; Heinrich b. 1850, d. ?; Christiane b. 1852, d. 1854; and Christoph b. 1854, d. 1923.

Here is their Family Register entry:Schaefer, Johann Jakob FR.1These records are wonderful to have, but I wish I could read a bit more between the lines to know more about who Susanna was and what she did.  I will have lots of questions for her when I eventually get to meet her!
