Gabrielem PLATZ & Anna Maria STRAUB were married 22 May 1832 in the Catholic Church in Maikammer, which is geographically in the Rhineland-Pfalz.Bayern is the German name for Bavaria, which has at times in the past administratively controlled the Pfalz, despite not being geographically continuous with it.In other words, they were not married in Bavaria, despite what the marriage record in the LDS IGI database says.
Four of Gabriel & Anna Maria (STRAUB) PLATZ's children were married in St. Joseph's Catholic Church in St. Louis, MO:
25 Nov 1858 Catharine PLATZ m. Anton PICKEL, s/o Jacob PICKEL & Catharina BELL Witnesses:Peter PICKEL and Clara PLATZ
(Gabriel is listed as deceased in the remaining marriage records.)
18 Apr 1861 Clara PLATZ m. Peter PICKEL, s/o Jacob PICKEL & Catharina BELL Witnesses:Jacob PICKEL and Emilia KRÜGER
16 Dec 1862 — a renewal of vows Margaretha PLATZ m. Christian KRIEGSHÄUSLER, s/o George Anton KRIEGSHÄUSLER & Margaretha DAM Witnesses:Anton PICKEL and Peter PICKEL
28 Oct 1869 Johann PLATZ m. Josephina NUNNEMAN, d/o Wilhelm NUNNEMAN & Theresia RAPP Witnesses:Johann Baptist DUMMLER and Maria HECHTEL
I know nothing further, and I have been tearing my hair out trying to find either Gabriel or Anna Maria in any census, especially 1860, for which at least Anna Maria had to have been living.If anyone has found them in any census, please share before I go nuts!
