I am researching the Labs family from Pommern, Germany. Frederick Ernest Labs was born in August 1854 , but I don't know where he was before that. He married Augusta Anna Carolina Rusch in 1878 and they had 5 daughters: Anna Rosemarie, Minnie Wilhelmine, Marie Anna Ernestine, Martha Christina Katharina, Paula Kunigunde Ottilie and 4 sons: Gustav Herman Carl, Carl Friedrich Heinrich, Walter Immanuel William, & 1 Stillborn.
Father & Mother of Frederick Ernest Labs
Karl Friedrich Wilhelm Labs, lived at Heyde, Kr. Belgard,Pommern
- birth information unknown
- died before 1878
- marriage data unknown
Johanne Henriette Friedrike Radtke
- birth and death data not found
Heyde was part of the Arnhausen church parish. Those records have been lost or destroyed. The only source of information available is civil records which began in 1874 and are available through 1905. From birth, marriage and death records in the archives in Koszalin, Poland, we learn the following:
As a widow, Johanne lived in Heyde in 1878 (marriage of son Fred), and 1883 (marriage of daughter Wilhelmine). At the time of son Johann's (2nd) marriage, in 1895, Johanne was living in Buslar. Her daughter Wilhelmine Riechow was living in Buslar at that time, so perhaps Johanne was living with the Riechow family. We were unable to find her death in the records up to 1905, so she either died after that date, or she died some other place.
Any information would be appreciated. I am also willing to share the information that I have.
