Grayson family

Notes


Thilo BREMERS

Was a cowherd in Barnsdorf, Germany.


Gottfried Heinrich KÜNNE

Born October 29, 1763, in Barnsdorf, Germany.  Baptised November 2.
Confirmed April 23, 1775, in Barnsdorf.  He was named Gottfried Heinrich at
birth, but later was called Heinrich Gottfried.  Lived in Barnsdorf, Germany.

The baptismal record for daughter Dorothea Elisabeth lists a sponsor named
Joachim Heinrich K\"unne, from the town of Dettleben.


Andreas KÜNNE

The State Archives in Wolfenb\"uttel contain vital records for Barnsdorf for
the years 1646-1747.  I wasn't able to find the birth record for Andreas, but
there are others such as: the marriage of Elisabeth K\"unne in 1675, the
marriage of Dorothea K\"unne in 1705, and the birth of Heinrich J\"urgen
K\"unne in 1723.  These early birth records don't seem to list the names of
the parents.


Jonas Friedrich Conrad HARTGE

Born in Osterode, Germany, in 1796 or 1797.
Osterode is about 30 kilometers northeast of G\"ottingen.


Charlotte Wilhelmine Friederike KÜNNE

There is obviously some problem with the two children both named Friedrich
Andreas -- could they really be two different children?  There were two birth
records, both listing the father, Hartge, and the mother, Charlotte K\"unne.


Marie Dorothea Friederike HARTGE

Born December 18, 1819, in Hedeper, before the marriage of her
parents.  Baptised December 25.  Died April 7, 1821, in
Hedeper, due to ``Frinsel'' or ``Friesel''.  Buried April 11.

Living in a nursing home in Fort Dodge, Iowa, in 1979.  
Died 1982.


Annetta Caroline Marie KINNE

Born January 22, 1887, in Dayton, Iowa.  
Known as ``Nettie''.
Lived in Blue Earth, Minnesota.
Died October 7, 1973.


Harold Thomas BUTLER

Born December 9, 1891.
Married March 8, 1916, most likely, or April 1.
