Fearless Females - March 9 - A Family Document

Fearless Females: 31 Blogging Prompts to Celebrate Women’s History Month.
March 9 — Take a family document (baptismal certificate, passenger list, naturalization petition, etc.) and write a brief narrative using the information.

This is the church record from St. John's Lutheran Church in Elyria, Ohio for my great-grandparents, Anton and Augusta Sprengel Werner. This shows their first two sons were born in Germany as were Anton and Augusta.  This record also shows the names of the second and third wives of Anton after the death of his first wife, Auguste.  These names were not previously known in whole to the family. My grandfather, Edward, is child number six born in Grafton, Ohio 15 February 1896.
