52 Ancestors: #37 Antoine WECKERING Becomes Father of his 13th Child at Age 72!

Week 37 (September 10-16) – Large Family. Did you know that all 10 of the most common birthdays are in September? (If you’re a chart geek like me, check out this heat map of birth date frequencies.) So let’s feature an ancestor who had a large family or who was a member of a large family.

Over a period of 54 years Antoine “Anton” WECKERING (1781-1857) fathered 13 known children, his first child when he was 18. He was 72 years old when his last child was born, my husband’s 2nd great-grandmother Elisabeth “Elise” WECKERING (1853-1905).

Antoine WECKERING was born 1 July 1781 in Unterschlinder, Grand Duchy of Luxembourg to Pierre WECKERING (1752-1820) and Marguerite LASCHEID (1753-1792). This date of birth was found in his 1799 marriage record.[1] The place of birth was mentioned in his 1843 marriage record[2], census records from 1846 through 1855, and his 1857 death record[3]. At the time of his first marriage, his surname was spelled without a g at the end – WECKERIN.

Index Card of Marriage [4]
The index card with the marriage information for “Antoine WECKERIN” and Marguerite MÜLLER includes most of the information found in the marriage record. Marguerite was the daughter of Nicolas MÜLLER and Marie Cathérine COLLING. The (+) indicates they were deceased at the time of the marriage.

The date 20 pluviose 7 calculates to 8 February 1799. Missing on the card but found in the “copie conforme” of the marriage record[1] is the fact that the groom was only 17 years old. As he didn’t have the necessary age to marry, his father Pierre gave his consent before the witnesses present.

This is an important item since Antoine’s  birth date was again recorded as 1 July 1781 when he married the second time in 1843. A record of birth or baptism has not been located. [Later research turned up a birth record for a brother born on 7 December 1781 making it impossible for Antoine to have been born five months earlier.] The baptismal records for Brandenbourg, where I believe the record may be found, have considerable shortcomings and are not in chronological order for the period Antoine was born.

1799 Marriage Record of Antoine WECKERING and Marguerite MÜLLER[1]

1799weckeringmarriage21799weckeringmarriage31799weckeringmarriage4The bride Marguerite MÜLLER (1773-1841) was twenty-six years old; both of her parents were deceased. The difference in age of the bride and groom and the fact that the groom was underage led me to this assumption: the marriage may have been taking place due to the bride being with child.

Finding Proof for this Assumption

Antoine and Marguerite were living in Merscheid, a village in the commune of Landscheid, when their daughters Margaretha (1803)[5] and Anne Marie (1805)[6] were born. I searched the birth records from 1799 to 1803 for their first child to prove my assumption. No birth was found in the Bastendorf where the Landscheid records for the time period were housed.

I checked the deaths records for possible stillborn children. I found a daughter Anne Marie who died on 14 February 1803[7] at the age of 3 years in Merscheid, also seen as her place of birth. Her age at death suggested she was born February 1800 or earlier. The birth records of the commune of Landscheid are missing for year 8 of the French republican calendar – 23 September 1799 to 22 September 1800. Anne Marie was not found in year 7 or 9 and since she died on 25 Pluviose year 11 or 14 February 1803 at age 3 years, her birth must have been in year 8, between 23 September 1799 and 14 February 1800.

She may or may not have been the reason for the marriage of her parents. If I had not made the assumption and searched for documentation to prove/disprove my theory their first known daughter Anne Marie (~1800-1803) may have remained hidden in the records.

The Children of Antoine and Marguerite (wife #1)

    • Ch 1: Anne Marie WECKERING born abt 1800 and died 14 February 1803, both events in Merscheid.[7]
    • Ch 2: Margaretha WECKERING (1803-?) born, a little over a week after the death of Anne Marie, on 23 February 1803 in Merscheid.[5] No further documentation was found for this child. It’s possible she died young as another daughter was given the same name in 1818.
    • Ch 3: Anne Marie WECKERING (1805-1880) born 29 November 1805 in Merscheid.[6] Anne Marie married Jean HAAN (1808-1870) on 18 January 1832 in Bourscheid.[8] She died 31 August 1880 in Lipperscheid.[9]
    • Ch 4: Catherine WECKERING (1808-1810) born abt 1808 and died 28 October 1810 in Lipperscheid.[10]
    • Ch 5: Théodore WECKERING (1811-1893) born 10 October 1811 in Lipperscheid.[11] Théodore married Gertrude FAUTSCH (1812-1847) on 8 February 1840 in Bourscheid.[12] He married 2nd Anna Maria STEINMETZ who survived him when he died on 11 December 1893 in Michelau.[13]
    • Ch 6: Marie Catherine WECKERING (1814-1884) born 16 April 1814 in Lipperscheid.[14] Marie Catherine married Nicolas MALGET on 9 February 1836 in Boevange les Clervaux.[15] She was present at the marriage of her daughter on 1 December 1884[16] and died after this date.
    • Ch 7: Margueritte WECKERING (1818-1871) born 1 April 1818 in Lipperscheid.[17] Marguerithe married Louis THILGES on 29 October 1847 in Basbellain.[18] She died 10 July 1871 in Trotten (Troine) in the Boevange-Clervaux commune.[19]

Antoine’s children from his first marriage were all born before the death of his father Pierre WECKERING on 17 March 1820 in Hoscheid.[20] Pierre was the only grandparent the children ever knew as their mother’s parents and their father’s mother were deceased at the time their parents married.

Marguerite MÜLLER, Antoine’s first wife, died 7 April 1841 in Lipperscheid.[21]

1843 Marriage of Antoine WECKERING and Margaretha BERNARD[2]

1843marriageTwo years after the death of his first wife, 61 years old Antoine found a new life partner. On 30 May 1843 he married Margaretha BERNARD (1815-1878) in Bourscheid.[2]

Margaretha, 27 years old, was born 2 November 1815 in Hoscheid and was about the same age as her groom’s youngest children. She was the daughter of the deceased Pierre BERNARD (1790-1820) and Antoinette GROEBER (1790-1843). Her mother Antoinette died less than three months before the marriage.[22] Antoinette had been widowed twice and left four daughters: Margaretha, her sister Marie Cathérine and their twin half-sisters Elisabetha and Anna Maria KAUFMANN.

The Children of Anton and Margaretha (wife #2)

Margaretha gave Anton six children, sadly only the youngest lived.

  • Ch 1: Marie Catherine WECKERING (1844-1845) born 25 April 1844 in Lipperscheid.[23] When she died on 25 March 1845 in Hoscheid her name was recorded as Anna Maria on her death record.[24]
  • Ch 2: Corneil WECKERING (1845-1848) born 2 June 1845 in Hoscheid.[25] He was seen with his parents on the 3 December 1846* and 31 December 1847* census. Corneil died on 23 May 1848 in Hoscheid.[26]
  • Ch 3: Anna Maria WECKERING (1847-1850) born 13 July 1847 in Hoscheid.[27] She was seen with her parents on the 31 December 1847* and 3 December 1849* census. Anna Maria died 15 June 1850 in Hoscheid.[28]

Antoine was seen with his second wife Margaretha BERNARD and children mentioned above (*) on the Hoscheid census on 4 December 1846[34], 31 December 1847[35], 3 December 1849[36], 31 December 1851[37], 9 December 1852[38], and 3 December 1855.[39]

Life After Antoine’s Death

Antoine WECKERING died 25 March 1857 in Hoscheid.[40] He left his widow Margaretha, four married children from his first marriage and his youngest daughter Elise who was not yet four years old.

His widow Margaretha and their daughter Elise were seen in the Hoscheid census on 3 December 1858[41], 3 December 1861[42], 3 December 1864[43], 3 December 1867[44], 1 December 1871.[45]

Elisabeth “Elise” WECKERING married Heinrich “Henri” GRISIUS (1839-1904) on 29 October 1874 in Hoscheid.[46] Her mother Margaretha was living with the couple on 1 December 1875 when the census was taken in Hoscheid.[47]

Margaretha BERNARD died on 15 April 1878 in the Central Hospiz in Ettelbruck.[48] She had been a widow for 20 years, without an occupation, and she raised her only living child Elise on her own. Did her deceased husband Antoine WECKERING leave her financially independent?

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.

As a military brat I've lived in Georgia, France, Idaho, West Virginia, Spain, South Carolina, Texas, and Luxembourg. Married 36 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.
