Petrus Sturmer

May 8, 2015

Petrus Sturmer, one of my maternal 8th great-grandfathers, has left little information about himself for his descendents to discover. I know he was born about 1633 and died before 1696. He also lived his life in Lieser, Rheinland, Prussia and was a member of the Roemisch-Katholische church in town. I have not yet found his parentage.

The church records do reveal, though, he married my 8th great-grandmother, Barbara Brixius, on 21 Feb, 1658. They had seven children; the oldest, Michael, was my 7th great-grandfather. Barbara died on 21 March 1673 and on 25 Feb 1675, Petrus married Maria Schneider in the same Catholic church. He and Maria had three children.

That’s everything I know (well, that, and the names of the children). There is much more to discover about this ancestor.
