What happened during their lives?
1764 Jan 1, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (age 8) played for the Royal Family at Versailles, France.
1770 Dec 16, Ludwig Von Beethoven (d.1827), deaf German composer best known for his 9th Symphony, was born in Bonn. His Sixth Symphony "Pastorale" was in F-Major.

The Graben Pastor who wrote this is Ernst Frederick Wider.
On Tuesday, the 20th of January  were legally married and clerically/priestly blessed Friderich Wilhelm Raichert, the local "Bader", the surviving legitimate unmarried son of the late Georg Mich[a]el Raichert, former juryman and "Bader" here, and with him Margaretha Barbara Weÿdmännin, the legitimate unmarried daughter of Christoff Weÿdmann here. They had a wedding sermon and ceremonial pomp but no string music because of grief/mourning.
My comment: Note the small numbers "1" and "2" written above the bride's forenames. The scribe wrote these two names in the wrong order and the numbers are telling the reader to reverse the names making "Margaretha" the first name and "Barbara" the second name.

Friderich Wilhelm Raicher, former citizen and "Bader" here, age 63 years, 11 months, 2 days.
My comments: The first name is spelled "Friderich" in this record.The occupation "Bader" translates as bathhouse operator or barber.Note from Wikipedia:
Bader is a German occupational surname derived from the German word "Bad" meaning "bath". It originally referred to the owners or attendants of bathhouses, who subsequently took on other tasks including cutting hair and dentistry.
German Wikipedia: Bader, also called Stübner, Latin balneator or feminine balneatrix (bath woman), is an old occupational name for the operator or employee of a bathhouse. The profession has been known since the Middle Ages. On the one hand, bathers were the "doctors of the little people" who could not afford to seek advice from the studied physicians. On the other hand, they were important assistants of the academically educated medical profession until the 18th century (see Position and Rights). Like the field scissors, they practiced a highly respected healing profession, although not accredited by science. It included bathing, body care, cosmetics and sub-areas of the developing surgery, dentistry and ophthalmology. For example, cupping and bloodletting as well as the treatment of minor wounds belonged to the scope of activities. In addition to the bather, a shearer or barber often worked in the bathhouse, who was responsible for cutting hair and trimming beards. From these, sometimes difficult to distinguish, professions developed the craft surgeon, later called wound doctor.
Pastor: The Pastor who helped with the final arrangements regarding Frederich was Johann Jacob Ritter. He served as Graben Pastor from 1757 -1798. We are not sure who buried Frederich but most likely he was buried behind the church in Graben.

Mother: Magdalena, née Roeschin.
Baptismal witnesses: (1) Christoph Braun, the local citizen and master tailor, and (2) his wife Maria Sidonia, née Grünenmeierin. (3) Wilhelm Roesch, legitimate unmarried son of Joh[ann] Philipp Roesch, the local citizen and master shoemaker.
