RE: Gertrude Mathe and Martha Jehner
Hi Bonnie,
I looked all over for the Martha Maria Gertrud Mathe (nickname Gertrude, with an "e" at the end; birth name without the "e") death cert and finally found a record of it, but no photo, on Where did you locate hers and her mother's??
Re MARTHA JEHNER: your original birth and death info was correct as was her name and there shouldn't be a link to Kurt Bruno Mathe. She was married to Karl Ernst Jehner (later spelled Carl Ernest Jehner) Find A Grave# 83965841. Despite what the death certificate says, Martha was granted a divorce from him on 5 Jul 1919 (filed in 1918; grounds for divorce: 2+ years desertion by Karl. (Karl married Florence 3 Feb 1930.)
Re MARTHA MARIA GERTRUD (JEHNER) MATHE: Known by the name Gertrude, born Cotta, Dresden, Sachsen, Sachsen, Germany 1 Feb 1900. First wife of Kurt Bruno Mathe, who is Find A Grave #86355587. They were married on Oct 19, 1919 in Berlin, Germany.

RE: Martha Jehner
Bonnie, apparently I have screwed up royally! This must be the mother of Martha Marie Gertrud "Gertrude" Jehner Mathe! I had info that her mother and father both died in Germany, different date than this, but obviously they too came to the USA at some point and settled in Ionia, Michigan along with their daughter and son-in-law. So it seemed this memorial must be the daughter's who died in late 1922 or early 1923. I know the mother and father of Gertrude were Karl and Martha, so this must be her mom. I guess I am back to "square 1" looking for the daughter's death cert. I am so very sorry (actually, mortified!) I was incorrect about the edits I suggested! --Sheila

RE: Martha Jehner
I cannot say for certain what the thinking was, but both she and her husband were born in Germany and in some European countries or localities death certificates list maiden names as do headstones. I looked for a death cert. for her but never could find one. Have you a copy of her death certificate? If so does it list her parents' names? Her marriage certificate to Kurt Bruno Mathe lists her father as Karl Ernst Jehner and her mother as Martha Marie Auguste (maiden unintelligible, but looks something like "Zer??")Jehner.

I will gladly make the changes you have requested but have a request for you. Will you please delete the photo of her death certificate that you have posted at her memorial? I have saved it to my computer and do thank you for it, I just prefer not to have death certificates posted at my memorials.

Thank you,

RE: Bailey
Thank you, Bonnie. Are you directly descended from James H. and Melissa J. Bailey? My great-grandmother is their daughter, Hattie Bailey, who married Herbert Becker.
