Looking for information on Christiana Figge who married Carl Bruene in then Waldeck (now part of the state of Hesse), Germany. Have the names and birth dates of the couple's children w/ the first born in 1851. Presume the marriage may have occurred sometime in 1848 to 1850. Would like to uncover Christiana's date of birth, parents' names. Information obtained in 1977 from a granddaughter, Emelie Stede, indicated that Christiana was born at Benkhausen Place. The Bruene Family came from the Rhenegge area. Christiana and Carl had the following children: Ernst, Carl, Karolina (who married Christian Stede), Friederike (who married a Pohlmann), Johanette, Luise, and Christian Friedrich. Any information would be most appreciated.
