Herzlichen Glückwunsch, Großmutter und Großvater Weber

9 February 1796, 224 years ago, in Schomberg, Württemberg, Johann Adam Weber married Anna Barbara Holtzäpfel, the daughter of Johann Jacob Holtzäpfel and Magdalina Seegerin.  Adam and Barbara were my 3 times great grandparents!   Their children were: Johann Georg (1798), Gottlieb (1806) [my great great grandfather who became known as Goodliff Weaver after he migrated to the United States), Christiana (1812), Anna Maria (1814), and Jacob (1813-1816).

Grandmother passed away in 1839.  Grandfather followed 10 years later on 6 November 1849 in Schwarzenberg, Württemberg.

Names are confusing since a great number of the males are named Johann or a variation and a great number of females are named Anna.  That is where the German tradition of Call Names, Namen rufen, come into play where the person is always referred to by their middle name.  Hence, Grandfather Adam, Grandmother Barbara.

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.
