Wolterman Genealogy - Week 16

My husband’s 5th great-grandfather was Mathias Woerdehoff, who was born in Hegensdorf, Westphalia, Germany in 1709. At this time I do not know anything about his parents or siblings. On 25 January 1735 he married Anna Maria Rinschen in Hegensdorf.

Mathias and Anna Maria had the following children: Johannes Georg born 1735; Johannes Antonius born 1737; Johannes Theodorus born 1739; Adam Joseph born 1742; Anna Maria Catharina born 1744, died before 1750; Franziskus Henricus (whom I wrote about last week) born 1747; Anna Maria Catharina born 1750; and Maria Elizabeth born 1752.

On 18 October 1775, Mathias passed away in Hegensdorf at the age of 66. Anna Maria lived the rest of her life in Hegensdorf, and was 76 when she died on 24 April 1787.

This marks the end of the Woerdehoff line in terms of documentation that I have found on the family.
