240th Anniversary of Onkel Balthasar und Tante Maria

On 4 April 1780, in the Evangelish in Besigheim, Württemburg, Johann Balthasar Gaertner, son of Melchior Gaertner and Maria Barbara Stockheimer, and Anna Maria Moehl, daughter of Johann David Moehl, were wed.  Balthasar was my 4th great granduncle, the brother of my 4th great grandfather, Johannes Gaertner.  5 times great grandparents, Melchior and Barbara are as far back in that line as I am able to trace at present.   Their great-grandson, Wilhelm Gotthardt Gaertner, would be the first of the family to cross the Atlantic and arrive in the United States in 1854.  Shortly after his arrival, Wilhelm took the name William G. Gardner.

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.
