Theodore Jakob Franke
Birth: Apr. 4, 1861
New Hamburg
Ontario, Canada
Death: Apr. 27, 1861
New Hamburg
Ontario, Canada

**Great Uncle**

Theodore Jakob was the son of Theodore and Wilhelmina Franke, and a brother to my Grandma Erbes. He lived for only 23 days. He was a twin to Gotlieb Hermann who lived for 2 and 1/2 years.

The Old Baden Burial Ground (Cemetery) was closed years ago and the stones were piled in a corner. Some were broken. Recently, a large Memorial was made from some of the markers found, honoring those buried in this cemetery in Ontario, Canada.

The twins, Theodore and Gotlieb, were on the same grave marker. Their stone marker was prominently positioned on the Memorial marker.

Translation of the German inscription on the twins' stone:

Here lie in peace, twins of the married couple Theodor Franke/Wilhelmine Stephan

1.Theodor Jakob 1.Theodor died 27 April 1861
2.Gottlieb Hermann 2.Gottlieb died 18 Nov. 1863

May God watch over you and me/in the silent bedchambers/we hope for your resurrection/look forward to when we will meet again.
