Fredericke Pauline "Freda" Bernecker Obenland
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Dec., 1846
Death: Dec. 26, 1922

As per the 1900 Census, Fredericka was born in December, 1846. She was born in Grossgartach, Neckarkreis, Wurttemburg, Germany. As per her death certificate, her parents were Philip Bernecker and his wife, Minnie Glotz. On the LDS website, her parents were listed as Arrissian Bernecker and Wilhelmine H. Klatz. On her marriage certificate, Fredericka's father is Arrissian and her mother Wilhelmina H. Klotz or Klatz. Her father was probably Peter Arrissian Bernecker. Since the marriage information came from Freda herself, we can safely say her mother was Wilhelmina H. Klatz or Klotz.

The 1900 Census also states that she immigrated to the United States in 1865. On May 20, 1866, Fredericka married Charles Karl Obenland in Manhattan County, New York. They were married by a Lutheran Pastor whose name is not legible on the certificate. Witnesses for the marriage were Johannes Michel and Paul O Gnatz.

On the marriage application, Charles listed his occupation as a miller. He later worked in a brewery, then at a hotel. Whether he owned the hotel or just worked there is unknown.

The couple had eight children but only 5 lived. Their children were: Julie, Charles, Louisa, Frieda and Gustave.

In the 1900 Census, the family was living on Neptune Avenue in Brooklyn. By 1910, they are at 110 Neptune Avenue. This might be the same house as in the 1900 Census, but it's hard to tell because that Census doesn't list a house number.

By 1910, Charles and Fredericka were retired. Charles was 70 years old and his wife was 65.

By 1920, Charles had passed away. Fredericka was living with their daughter Frieda and her second husband, Jack Walsh. They were still on Neptune Avenue, but the address then was 446 Neptune Avenue.

Fredericka passed away in Brooklyn on December 26, 1922. The exact address was a private home at 2838 West 1st Street in Brooklyn. This was probably her home. She was buried in Green-Wood Cemetery on December 29, 1922. According to her death certificate (#23129) Fredericka died from "Cerebral Appoplexy" with contributing causes listed as areterio schlerosis, myocarditis and Diabetes.
