Hélène SCHWARTZ 1909-2012

Hélène FASSBENDER-SCHWARTZ, a granddaughter of Johann SCHWARTZ and Catharina SCHMITT was a centenarian and the longest living person in this family. Hélène was born on 22 October 1909 in Osweiler[1] in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg to Nicolas SCHWARTZ and Maria WEILAND. She married Adolf “Adolphe” FASSBENDER with whom she had one daughter. Adolf passed away at the age of 33 years in 1942. Sixty years later on 11 February 2012[2] Hélène passed away at the age of 102 years, 3 months, and 20 days. Her unexpected death followed a fall from which she did not recover. At the time of her death she was the second oldest member of L’Amiperas Ettelbréck (a club for elderly, retired, and solitary persons). She was an active committee member until the age of 97. She played cards twice a week with her friends at the club meetings and she did not like to lose.

The SCHWARTZ-SCHMITT Family

My husband’s 2nd great-grandfather Johann SCHWARTZ was born on 10 March 1823 in Osweiler to Mathias SCHWARTZ and his wife Anna TRIERWEILER. This date was found on his 1855 marriage record.[3]

I haven’t been able to locate the birth record online at FamilySearch in the Luxembourg, Civil Registration, 1662-1941 collection. At one time they listed town/hamlet names in this browse only collection but during rework of the collection these were combined into the commune/municipality level. I have a birth record from 1821 for his older brother Hari that I downloaded on 22 May 2011. At the time I failed to include the link or the browse path. Links at FamilySearch are not supposed to change so if I’d have had the foresight to note this at the time I might not be sitting here pulling my hair and trying to locate the record. I sent an email to the support team at FamilySearch and hope that they may have a solution for the issue. Lesson learned: Since I began blogging I’ve been more careful about citing sources correctly but the dozen years of research from pre-blogging era still have sources that need to be corrected and/or updated.

My husband’s 2nd great-grandmother Catharina SCHMITT was born on 14 June 1829 in Kalberger Hof, Burgermeisterei Heidweiler, Kreis Wittlich, Preussen (Germany) to Nicolaus SCHMITT and his wife Anna Maria WOLLSCHEID. Once again I must rely on the birth information given in the 1855 marriage record as I am not familiar with where to find the German records.

Johann SCHWARTZ married Catharina SCHMITT on 27 January 1855 in Rosport, Grand Duché de Luxembourg. Present at the wedding were Johann’s widowed father Mathias who declared that he could not write and did not sign the marriage record, his brother Christophe, and Catharina’s widowed mother. The three other witnesses were not related to the bridal couple.[3]

Johann and Catharina’s first child Maria SCHWARTZ (1855-1859) was born six months later on 28 July 1855 in Osweiler.[4]

Johann, Catharina, and their daughter Maria were living with his parents and his paternal grandmother – a four generation household – when the census was taken on 3 December 1855 in Osweiler.[5]

When the next census was taken on 3 December 1858 Johann, Catharina, and Maria were living in  a house called “Millesch” in Osweiler.[6] Catharina was very pregnant with her next child Anna SCHWARTZ (1858-1860) who was born on 12 December 1858 in Osweiler.[7]

When Anna was nine months old her older sister Maria, age 4, died on 8 September 1859 in Osweiler.[8] Four months later on 11 January 1860 Anna, age 1, died in Osweiler.[9]

Following the deaths of their daughters, Johann and Catharina were childless until their first son was born. Heinrich SCHWARTZ (1861-1935) was born on 25 May 1861 in Osweiler.[10]

On 3 December 1861 when the census was taken Johann and Catharina were enumerated in their own household with their son Heinrich.[11] Their names were listed as Jean, Catherine and Henri.

Little Henri’s brother Peter SCHWARTZ (1863-1866) was born 27 April 1863 in Osweiler.[12] He was seen as Pierre when the family was once again enumerated on the census on 3 December 1864. The family was made up of father, mother, two sons and Nicolas SCHMITT, a brother of Catharina SCHMITT.[13]

A third son, Johannes SCHWARTZ (1866-1920), was born on 26 January 1866 in Osweiler.[14] Ten months later his brother Peter, age 3, died on 10 November 1866 in Osweiler.[15]

By the time that the census was taken on 3 December 1867, Johann and Catharina had had five children but only two were still living, Heinrich and Johann.[16] Catharina was pregnant with her sixth child. On 23 July 1868 son Nicolas SCHWARTZ (1868-1946) was born in Osweiler.[17]

The family must have been relieved when the next census was taken on 1 December 1871 and they could list their three sons: Heinrich, Johann, and Nikolaus.[18], [19], [20]

Soon after the 1871 census Catharina was once again pregnant. Her daughter Maria SCHWARTZ (1872-?) was born on 13 October 1872 in Osweiler.[21]

Johann and Catharina had three children living at home on 1 December 1875.[22], [23], [24] Their oldest son Heinrich was living with the SCHOMER-MARX family a few houses away and working as a Knecht or farmhand.[25], [26], [27]

By 1 December 1880 all of Johann and Catharina’s sons were likely working and living with other families as only daughter Maria was seen with her parents in Osweiler.[28], [29], [30]

Heinrich and Johann were once again living at home with their parents and sister Maria on 1 December 1885. Only their younger brother Nicolas was missing and probably working and living with another family.[31], [32], [33]

On 1 February 1887 this tight-knit family was seen together again on the census. The three sons were now 25, 21, and 18 years old. Maria was 14.[34], [35], [36]

Johann and Catharina’s oldest son Heinrich was missing from the 1 December 1890 census. Sons Johann and Nicolas were living at home. Daughter Maria is noted as living and working in Paris for the past 13 months.[37], [38], [39]

A year later the first of Johann and Catharina’s children finally married. Their son Johann, age 25, married Margaritha GORGES (1868-1938) on 24 August 1891 in a civil ceremony in Rosport.[40] It is very likely that they also married in a religious ceremony in the Catholic church in Osweiler.

Son Johann may have taken over the family home as he was seen as the head of household on 1 Dec 1895 in Osweiler. In his household were his wife and their four children, his parents and his younger brother Nicolas. On the back of the census page it is noted that his sister Maria had been living and working in Trier, Germany, for the past 6 months. Also his brother Heinrich had been living and working in America for the past five years. This is very likely the answer to the question of where Heinrich was when the 1890 census was taken.[41], [42], [43]

Johann SCHWARTZ, the father of this family, died on 13 February 1898 at 12:30 p.m. at his home in Osweiler. His son Johann was the informant.[44]

Two years later in Rosport the youngest son of this family, Nicolas, married Maria WEILAND on 14 May 1900.[45] Nicolas and Maria had a 2 1/2 years old son who was legitimized at the time of their marriage.

Heinrich, the oldest son of this family, had returned from America and married Margaretha “Marie” SCHULER (1876-aft. 1935) on 20 November 1900.[46]

When the time came for the census on 1 December 1900 all of the sons of this family were married and living on their own. The mother Catharina was living with her middle son Johann, her daughter-in-law, and their children, her seven grandchildren.[47], [48], [49]

The daughter Maria has not been located after 1895. In 1890 she was living in Paris and in 1895 in Trier. Was she married by 1900 and perhaps no longer living in Luxembourg?

The sons of Johann and Catharina had many children who, for the most part, lived to adult age. Heinrich had 11, Johann had 12, and Nicolas had at least 8.

Nicolas’ daughter Hélène, who would later be the centenarian of this family, was a little over a year old when her paternal grandmother Catharina SCHMITT died on 1 December 1910 in Osweiler.[50]

Ten years later Johann SCHWARTZ died on 4 January 1920 in Osweiler at the age of 53. His brother Nicolas was the informant on 5 January 1920 in Rosport.[51]

Another fifteen years later Heinrich SCHWARTZ died on 7 May 1935 in Osweiler at the age of 73.[52]

The last living child of this family, Hélène’s father Nicolas SCHWARTZ, died on 16 March 1946 in Echternach at the age of 77.[53]

52ancestors-2015This is my weekly entry for Amy Johnson Crow’s challenge:
52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks – 2015 Edition. It was so successful in 2014 that genealogists wanted to continue or join in on the fun in 2015. Be sure to check out the other great posts by visiting Amy’s blog No Story Too Small where she’ll be posting the weekly recap on Thurdays and allowing all participants to leave a link to their post(s) in the comments.

Author: Cathy Meder-Dempsey

As a military brat I've lived in Georgia, France, Idaho, West Virginia, Spain, South Carolina, Texas, and Luxembourg. Married 39 years with two grown children. When I’m not doing genealogy, I spend time riding my racing bike with my husband through the wonderful countryside in Luxembourg and surrounding countries.

  1. Wow! No one in my direct lineage made it to 100, Cathy. The best I can do is my GG-grandfather who supposedly died aged 91, but his actual birth record still eludes me. Next was a GGGG-grandfather, who made it to 88.
