52 Ancestors: #23 A June Wedding in 1901

Week 23 (June 4-10) – Wedding: June is time for weddings. Write about a June bride in your family or highlight a favorite wedding photo. Maybe there’s a serial marry-er in the family — that could be a fun post!

A June Wedding in 1901

1901marriageMy great-grandparents Catherine PÖPPELREITER and Johann WILDINGER were married in Ernzen, Germany, on 4 June 1901.[1] Instead of a wedding photograph, my mother has this tag which was attached to a bag of wedding favors, most likely dragées, and given to family and friends in memory of the wedding. Catherine and Johann were featured in my 52 Ancestors: #9 Close to Home and Close to My Heart.

The Wildinger-Pöppelreiter Family (ca. 1909). From left to right: mother Catherine Pöppelreiter, daughter Marie, son Jean-Pierre, and father Johann Wildinger. The little boy in front of Marie and Jean-Pierre is their son Nicolas, my maternal grandfather.

Catherine was the daughter of Mathias PÖPPELREITER and his first wife Magdalena WAGNER. Her marriage is the only one I know of for the children of Mathias PÖPPELREITER and his two wives.

The PÖPPELREITER-WAGNER Family 1868-1884

Mathias PÖPPELREITER was born on 22 June 1843[2] and baptized on 23 June 1843[3] in Mettendorf, Rhineland, Germany. His parents were Theodore PÖPPELREITER and Maria Katharina GROELINGER.[2]

Mathias married first Magdalena WAGNER on 18 November 1868 in Mettendorf.[4] In the Mettendorf Family Book (above) the compiler included the church register (KB) number, page number, and record number for easy access to the marriage record which would be located in the archives of the diocese in Trier.

Magdalena was born 21 Mar 1842[5] in Mettendorf to Johann WAGNER (some records show the surname spelled WAGNER) and Anna Maria KERSCHT. She was baptized on 22 March 1942 in Mettendorf.[6]

Mathias and Magdalena had eight known children in a dozen years.

  • Theodore b. 18 Sep 1870 d. 1 Dec 1879 § [4]
  • Johann “Joannes” b. 23 Jan 1873 [4]
  • Katharina “Catherine” b. 16 September 1874 [4] d. 4 September 1950 [7], [8]
  • Mathias b. 17 March 1876 [4]
  • Gertrude Marie b. 17 March 1876 d. 7 March 1877 § [4]
  • Margaretha b. 27 May 1878 d. 22 October 1893 § [4]
  • Katharina b. 19 January 1880 d. 19 May 1882 § [4]
  • Maria b. 3 May 1882 d. 3 May 1890 § [4]

All of the above children were born in Mettendorf. The place of death of the children who died young (§ = symbol I use for the end of a line in my database) was also Mettendorf. It is not known if sons Johann and Mathias married and had children. Catherine, child #3, is the only child of this union known to have married and have children.

Magdalena died 20 March 1884[4] in Mettendorf leaving Johann 11, Catherine 9, Mathias 8, Margaretha 5 and Maria nearly 2 without a mother.

The PÖPPELREITER-JUTZ Family 1885-aft. 1892

Mathias PÖPPELREITER had been widowed exactly 10 months when he married Katharina JUTZ on 20 January 1885[9] in Mettendorf. Katharina was born 26 January 1847 in Sinspelt, a neighboring village of Mettendorf. Although Katharina was close to 40 years old when Mathias married her, she gave him three children.

  • Regina b. 11 July 1887 d. aft. 17 July 1942 [9]
  • Anna Maria b. 11 July 1889 [9]
  • Georg b. 28 June 1891 d. 5 November 1892 § [9]

M1964
Werner Naumann, compiler, Familienbuch der Pfarrei Mettendorf Dekanat Neuerburg, Band 1 A-M Band 2 N-Z (compiled in 1992), Band 2 p. 39 family no. M 1964. [Pages of book photographed in Archiv Peter Daus (Wittlich) on 4 May 2013].
As with Mathias’ first family, all of these children were born in Mettendorf. Little Georg died in Mettendorf at the age of 16 months.[9]

Mathias and Katharina’s daughter Regina wrote to her half-sister Catherine’s family in Luxembourg during World War II given them genealogy information on the PÖPPELREITER family. The letter survived the war and was saved by Catherine’s daughter Marie and later passed on to my mother, her godchild. This letter was transcribed and translated in my 52 Ancestors: #9 Close to Home and Close to My Heart.

Where will I find the original records?

Werner Naumann who compiled the Mettendorf Family Book used the church registers (Kirchenbuch = KB) 1 through 13. KB 12 has marriages from 1860 to after 1900 and KB 13 has births and deaths from 1860 to after 1900. A 1999 version of Naumann’s compilation gives the location of the church registers in the front matter of the book. KB 1 through 11 are kept in the Diocese Archives in Trier and KB 12 and 13 were in the archives of the parish in Mettendorf. For the protection of privacy, records are not made available to the public for a certain amount of years from the date of the record. Baptismal records: 120 years; marriage records: 100 years; and death records: 40 years. Complete volumes of the death registers may only be viewed in their entirety 100 years after the last entry made. Information about deaths may be requested on an individual basis per the 40 years rule.

Dates of death for Mathias PÖPPELREITER and his 2nd wife Katharina JUTZ were not listed in the 1992 compilation. They most likely died after 1892 as Mr. Naumann would have only had access to death records up to 1892 when he compiled his book. For the same reason, records of marriages of Mathias’ children were not available to the public. It is only due to the tag saved from their wedding favors and the family book for Ernzen[1] that I have the date of marriage for Mathias and Magdalena’s daughter Catherine.

To find the missing documentation I will have to visit the Mettendorf parish archives and/or the diocese archives in Trier. When I take the trip to the Rhineland Archives in Koblenz later this month with my genealogy society Luxracines, I might be able to view the civil records for this family if someone in my group ordered the BMD records for Mettendorf. I ordered only Ernzen and Ferschweiler and would gladly share time with someone interested in these villages. Wouldn’t it be fun to work with another researcher on the same village? One can always hope and, as they say, two heads are always better than one.

52 Ancestors: #19 The Heinrich GRISIUS Family of Hoscheid-Dickt

Week 19 (May 7-13) – There’s a Way: What ancestor found a way out of a sticky situation? You might also think of this in terms of transportation or migration.

Instead of an ancestor, I was the one who had to find a way out of a sticky situation. I think everyone has a family similar to the one I researched (again) this week. A family you keep coming back to but push away until later because of the amount of work required or not knowing where to look. There’s a way I usually do my research and there’s a way to take a short cut. I had to use both approaches before I could begin to write about this family.

I spent hours searching the census and civil records of Luxembourg for my husband’s great-great-grandfather Heinrich GRISIUS, his two wives, and thirteen children. This is my usual way of doing Luxembourg research as none of the records are indexed. You won’t find shaky leaves on Ancestry for records in Luxembourg. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t other sites that are helpful.

Rob Deltgen, who is well known to anyone researching families in Luxembourg, shares his work online. Rob’s site is the oldest and most visited genealogy site in Luxembourg and the short cut I used. [Access to the site is free but you need to register and login with a password.]

I went through the children and grandchildren of the GRISIUS family checking the dates and places Rob had with the online records at FamilySearch. Since Rob does not cite his sources online this is a good exercise in searching for records in browse only collections and comparing the information.

The reason I included grandchildren in this project was due to the time period. The GRISIUS chidren lived longer than the records are available on FamilySearch – 1922. The National Library of Luxembourg has the newspapers online. Obituaries may contain names of children but not always names of siblings. The grandchildren’s names make the search easier. But not all families published obituaries in the newspapers.

The GRISIUS-MANGERS and the GRISIUS-WECKERING Families

Heinrich “Henri” GRISIUS was born 25 June 1839 in Hoscheid-Dickt, Commune of Hoscheid, Canton of Diekirch, Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. His parents were Frederique “Friedrich” GRISIUS (1805-1852) and Catherina SCHAEFFER (1815-1898). They named him Heinrich per his birth record.[1]

Heinrich married his first wife Marie MANGERS on 8 November 1860 in Wilwerwiltz in the canton of Wiltz.[2] Marie gave birth to four children:

  • Ch 1: Michel GRISIUS (1861-aft. 1900) born 19 September 1861 in Hoscheid-Dickt[3]
  • Ch 2: Anna Marie GRISIUS (1864-1921) born 3 March 1864 in Hoscheid-Dickt[4]
  • Ch 3: Cathérine GRISIUS (1866-1927) born 16 Jun 1866 in Hoscheid-Dickt[5]
  • Ch 4: Elisabeth GRISIUS (1870-1871) born 10 June 1870 in Hoscheid-Dickt[6]

Heinrich’s first wife Marie died on 2 January 1871.[7] Six days later the baby Elisabeth GRISIUS died on 8 January 1871.[8] Both deaths took place in Hoscheid-Dickt.

In December 1871 Heinrich, a widower, was seen on the census with his three young children: Michel 10, Anna Marie 7, and Cathérine 5. He did not have anyone in the household to help with the children.[9]

Heinrich waited a few more years before marrying again.  On 29 October 1874 he married Elisabeth WECKERING (1853-1905) in Hoscheid.[10]

Elisabeth was born 9 May 1853 in Hoscheid to Antoin WECKERING and Margaretha BERNARD. Her father was 72 years old and her mother 36 years old.[11] Her parents had been married 10 years and had buried 5 children during that time. Elisabeth was the only child of this couple to reach adulthood.

Elisabeth and Heinrich had nine children in 18 years:

  • Ch 5: Marguerite GRISIUS (1875-1913) born 28 August 1875 in Hoscheid-Dickt[12]
  • Ch 6: Nicolas GRISIUS (1877-1939) born 14 August 1877 in Hoscheid[13]
  • Ch 7: Cathérine GRISIUS (1879-1918) born 7 September 1879 in Hoscheid-Dickt[14]
  • Ch 8: Cathérine GRISIUS (1881-1938) born 25 December 1881 in Hoscheid-Dickt[15]
  • Ch 9: Mathieu GRISIUS (1883-aft 1912) born 5 December 1883 in Schlinder-Haut[16]
  • Ch 10: François GRISIUS (1885-1946) born 22 December 1885 in Hoscheid-Dickt[17]
  • Ch 11: Martin GRISIUS (1888-aft. 1900) born 15 August 1888 in Hoscheid-Dickt[18]
  • Ch 12: Léonard GRISIUS (1891-aft. 1923) born 2 March 1891 in Hoscheid-Dickt[19]
  • Ch 13: Nicolas GRISIUS (1893-aft.1934) born 22 September 1893 in Hoscheid-Dickt[20]

While Elisabeth was pregnant with her 6th child (Heinrich’s 10th) her stepdaughter Anna Marie was also pregnant and had to get married. Anna Marie married Michel BURGEN on 18 May 1885 in Hoscheid[21] and the first grandchild Anne BURGEN (1885-1937) was born on 10 July 1885.[22] Three more children were born to this couple and each time the child’s surname was spelled differently: Angelica Bürgen 1891, Georg “Joseph” Burghen 1899, and Susanna Birchen 1904.

Heinrich’s second daughter Cathérine GRISIUS married Albert MEYER (1863-1928) on 1 March 1889 in Bastendorf.[23] Their first child Marie was born on 31 December 1889 in Weidingen les Wiltz.[24] She was followed by (another) Marie 1893, Anne 1897, Elisabeth 1901, Michel 1904, Nicolas 1906 and Catharina 1908.

Heinrich and Elisabeth’s oldest daughter Marguerite married Dominique DONNER on 25 February 1895[25] in Hoscheid three weeks after giving birth to a son they named Henri after her father.[26]

Heinrich’s oldest child Michel GRISIUS married Elisabeth JAEGER on 31 January 1898 in Wiltz.[27] He was 36 and she was 47. It is not known if the couple remained in Wiltz were they were seen in the 1900 census. No children were found in that community and it is not very likely that his wife had a child at her late age.

To make things a bit more difficult Heinrich named three of his daughters Cathérine. On census listings they were all seen with the same first name.

1885census
1 December 1885 Census[28]
1887census
1 February 1887 Census[29]
Because of this naming pattern in the family it is important to read the marriage records closely to see which of the three daughters named Cathérine married which men. Marriage records include the dates and places of birth of the bride and groom making it easier to keep the girls apart.

The first daughter named Cathérine b. 1866 married in 1889 as seen above. The two others married in 1900 and 1902:

  • Cathérine GRISIUS (b. 1879) married Nicolas KREMER (1875-1951) on 28 November 1900 in Bettendorf.[30] They were my husband’s great-grandparents.
  • Cathérine GRISIUS (b. 1881) married Edouard DAUBACH (1880-1948) on 26 December 1902 in Hoscheid.[31]

Heinrich “Henri” GRISIUS died on 14 October 1904 in Hoscheid-Dickt[32] and was followed by his wife Elisabeth “Elise” WECKERING four months later on 14 February 1905 in Hoscheid-Dickt.[33]

When Heinrich and Elisabeth died their six sons were not yet married. Marriages were found for all of them except Martin.

  • Nicolas GRISIUS married Susanne JACOBY on 6 January 1909 in Heiderscheid[34]
  • Mathieu GRISIUS married Susanne Cathérine SCHNEIDER 20 July 1909 in Boulaide[35]
  • François GRISIUS married Marie Sophie WIEGAND on 7 February 1911 in Diekirch[36]
  • Léonard GRISIUS married  Madeleine Susanne LEINENWEBER on 11 April 1913 in Wiltz[37]
  • Nicolas Grisius married Mathilde REUTER on 4 July 1920 in Bissen[38]

Before the last son married the two oldest daughters of Heinrich and Elisabeth died. Marguerite on 8 June 1913 in Luxemburg City[39] and Cathérine GRISIUS (b. 1879) in childbirth on 19 April 1918 in Moestroff.[40]

It is not known when Heinrich’s oldest daughter Anna Marie GRISIUS died. She was last seen alive in November 1921 when her youngest child married.[41]

Cathérine GRISIUS (b. 1866) died 3 October 1927 in Weidingen.[42]

Nicolas GRISIUS, the youngest child of this family, became a father on 28 February 1934.[43] It is not known how long he lived.

Cathérine GRISIUS (b. 1881) died before 31 May 1938, the date her son Marcel died. His obituary lists only his father and siblings.[44]

Nicolas GRISIUS died 26 March 1939 in Weidingen.[45]

François GRISIUS died 16 November 1946 in Bettendorf.[46]

The research on this family was time-consuming but it was a good feeling to be able to work on a family with thirteen children and find that only one died at a very young age. Eleven of the twelve children married and had children giving Heinrich and Elisabeth 55 grandchildren.

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.
