Re: LENERTZ Family - Luxembourg / Australia
Your great-grandfather's great-grandfather (Peter, married to Maria Hoffman) is the brother of my great-great-grandfather (Peter -- yeesh, did they have NO imagination when it came to naming children back then?I have 5 Peters in that household alone!!!).I don't know when he (my GGGrandfather Peter) was born, but the chart I have says he died in 1828 and was married to Catherine Mathes.They had 6 children -- Nicolas, Henri Pierre (b. 1793, d. 1861), Georg (m. Magdalena Schmit, 13 children, d. 1861), Peter (my great-grandfather, 1806-1868, m. Magdalena Muller (1817-1871) in 1836, 9 children), Bernard, and Annette.
The only information I have about your Peter, married to Maria Hoffman is that he was born in 1779, lived in Zittig, and had 14 children.
I'd love to fill in some blanks on my chart, and help you fill in some on yours.
