170th Anniversary of GG Granduncle and Aunt Gaertner

It was on the 20th of May 1849, in the Evangelisch, Grosssingersheim, Neckarkreis, Wüerttemberg that Alexander Gaertner and Catharina Barbara Gaertner were wed.    Although the two have the same surname, I have found no familial connection.

Uncle Alexander and Aunt Barbara were the brother and sister-in-law of my great great grandfather, Wilhelm Gotthardt Gaertner who went by William G. Gardner after his arrival in the United States in 1854.   Uncle Alexander was one of the reported 5 brothers that were older that Grandfather.  Grandfather, being the youngest of 12 (there were also 6 sisters), there was going to be nothing in the family estate for him, so his lot in life was to head off to the new world.   Alexander stayed in Wüerttemburg, in the area now made up of metropolitan Stuttgart.

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
