Surname: Hagedorn

Hagedorn - Ontrup marriage record
(click to enlarge any image in this post)

The Hagedorn surname comes to me via my grandma, Evelyn Hauer. Her fourth great-grandfather was:
  • Joan Henricus Hagedorn, whose wife was Elisabeth Ontrup (the widow of Erdman?). They were married 18 June 1765 in Wadersloh, Westfalen, Prussia. Joan died 22 January 1779 in Wadersloh. Joan and Elisabeth were my sixth great-grandparents.
  • Gerhardus Henricus Hagedorn, born 20 October 1766 in Wadersloh. He married Anna Gertrudis Brede on 29 May 1798. Together they had eight known children. Gerhardus Henricus and Anna Gertrudis were my fifth great-grandparents.
  • Clara Elisabeth Hagedorn, christened 22 July 1798 in Wadersloh. Clara was my fourth great-grandmother.
  • Maria Gertrud Hagedorn, born 13 December 1820 at Wadersloh and christened the next day. She married Johann Hermann Meyer-Schulte on 11 August 1840 at Beckum, Westfalen. She outlived Hermann, who died in May 1855. Maria Gertrud and Hermann were my third great-grandparents.

(The notation later added below this record indicates
Maria married Schulte of Herzfeld in Beckum.
The dates in this notation jibe with the marriage
record as it appears in the Beckum churchbook.)
