|Elisabetha Scholl Speck age 48 death 7 May 1840 film 102550540 page 14|
In the year of Christ 1840, on the 7th of May at 6 pm died and was buried on the 10th at 8:30 am Elisabetha Scholl, left-behind wife of the deceased Johann Georg Spoeck, a local citizen and shoemaker; age 28 years 3 months 2 days.
Witnesses are Philipp Blau, citizen and master smith, and Philipp Herbster, citizen and master turner.
Graben, the 10th of May 1840 Pastor Henhöefer
Note: Elisabetha was "left behind"? This makes sense if Johann Georg Spoeck died 12 Feb 1839 as see in the familybook below. It doesn't make sense if, as seen in the next document, he dies in 1846. What doesn't make sense is that she died at 28 years as seen in the above document. If that is true she was born in 1812. Actually she was born in 1792. She is 48 years old in 1840.
Pastor Aloys Henhöfer served in Graben from 1823-1827. "In 1830 Julius von Gemmingen-Steinegg had a Protestant church built in Mühlhausen and a Protestant school with teachers' and pastors' quarters established. However, at the request of the Catholic church management, Henhöfer was denied a position as a Protestant pastor in Mühlhausen. Instead he was transferred to Graben near Karlsruhe." So pastor Henhöfer came back to Graben but is not listed after 1827 as a Graben pastor.

Translation by Robert Seal:
In the year of Christ 1846, on the 23rd of April, early at 4:00 am died here, and was on the 25th of the same month in the morning at 10:00 am buried here: Georg Friedrich Speck, widower, citizen, and shoemaker here, age: 74 years, 5 months, and 20 days.
His deceased wife was: Eva Elisabetha Scholl. His long-deceased parents were: Lorenz Speck, former citizen here, and Anna Maria Werner.
Witnesses: (1) Christoph Lind, citizen and mason here, (2) Christoph Braun, citizen and mason here.
Graben, on the 25th of April 1846. T. Crecelius, pastor.
Left margin: Speck. Widower.
Notes: Our Elisabetha Scholl is never referred to as Eva. This is the wrong person for Elisabetha b 1792. Also Georg's age should be 67 not 74 if the birth noted above is correct. Also based on this document Georg Friedrich Speck was born in 1772. That is not possible based on the familybook below and his birth document above.
|Elisabetha Scholl b 6 Feb 1792 familybook I page 236 film 102118620 page 1019|
The information on this familybook appears to be correct based on the above documents. Elisabetha was born in 1792 and George in 1779. Christine's birth also matches with her birth record above.
|Christina Spock b 4 May 1823 familybook II page 183 film 102118620 page 1169|
(1) Did Maria b 1842 have two illegitimate children and go to America?: Yes, Maria Christina had two illegitimate children: (1) Martin Ludwig (1865-1865) and (2) Lina Friederika (1867-1867). Maria Christina died in America. [I don't know what "/4" means.]
(2) What is the first name of the second child at the end of the list?: Lina.
(3) What is written below Martin Ludwig?: acknowledged [that Martin Ludwig is his child] by Martin Hassler.
(4) What is Wilhelm b 1872's middle name?: If you are referring to Wilhelm Scholl, the father, at the top of the page, he was born in 1812. His occupation, rather than his middle name, is written after "Wilhelm"; the occupation is "Straußwirth" = innkeeper at the sign of the bouquet (who sells wine).
(5) What about Luise Karoline? Did she get married in 1871?: Yes, she got married in 1871. I am unable to decipher what is written before "1871", possibly the place where the marriage took place. Below this a a note in parentheses which states the following: "(NB. geschieden)" = (Note well: divorced).
Notes: Wilhelm Scholl was born in 11 Nov 1812. Wilhelm's occupation is "Straußwirth" = innkeeper at the sign of the bouquet (who sells wine). Wilhelm is the great grandson of Matthias Scholl b 1718. He married Christina Speck 1 April 1841 and they had four children:
1. Maria Christina Scholl 13 Mar 1842. Maria Christina had two illegitimate children:
(1) Martin Ludwig (1865-1865) acknowledged [that Martin Ludwig is his child] by Martin Hassler.
(2) Lina Friederika (1867-1867) Fridericka 5 Feb 1867
2. Wilhelm 3 July 1845
3. Karl Ludwig Scholl 1847
4. Luise Karoline Scholl 1853 married in 1871 and then divorced.
