Happy Wedding Wednesday! Today we have a lovely couple – Heinrich & Betty – whose wedding day was on September 14, 1921, in Ludwigslust in Germany.
And eventhough the dedication does not mention the couple’s surname, I was lucky to find their marriage record on Ancestry according to which they were Heinrich Clemens Müller and Betty Emma Sophia née Saffan.
Heinrich had been born on December 11, 1895, in Boppard, Germany. And Betty’s parents Adolf Friedrich Heinrich August Saffan and Maria Hermine Auguste Schmidt welcomed their daughter Betty on June 12, 1900. Betty lost her father early in life, before the age of 15. By then, she and her mum had moved to Ludwigslust where she was confirmed in the local church in 1915.
Heinrich was a man of the law, he served as the district court judge (Gerichtsaktuar) according to the marriage record.
I don’t know if the couple had children. Heinrich died on August 28, 1984, in Ludwigslust. Betty outlived her husband by 15 years, and passed away at almost 100 years of age on September 13, 1998, in Bad Kreuznach.
