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:
Susanna married Johann Jakob Schaefer 17 June 1845 in Grossgartach. Here is their marriage entry:
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:These 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!
