A 17th-Century Barthen Wedding

February 21, 2013

Today we celebrate the marriage of my 8th great grandparents, Petrus Barthen and Barbara Brixius on 21 Feb 1658 in Lieser, Rheinland, Prussia, Germany. Petrus was born ca. 1633 while Barbara’s age is still unknown to this author. The couple had seven children between 1658 and 1670: Michael (my 7th great grandfather), Margreta, Nicolaus, Petrus, Joannes, Susanna, and Matthias. Barbara died 21 Mar 1673 according to Barthen family research. Petrus later married Maria Schneider and they had three children: Balthasar, Anna Maria, and Anna.
