I have a Prayer book that belonged to my Great Grandmother. It has Marie Voss (and what I believe is = to nee) Flagel and Grs Markham (Markow)? The book was published in 1862. I was just looking at her listing at Ancestry and a William and Mary Voss with sons Charles and Frederick on the Mecklenburg-Schwein Census for 1867. It has them living at Groß Markow, Ritteramt Neukalen, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany.
I have always thought this was Great Grandparents, on the 1867 Census but not 100 per cent sure.
I had thought the Grs Markman or Markow on the page was a person’s name. Is it possible this is a location? Here is a photo with the German writing. If Grs Markman is a location, that brings an other piece of the puzzle together for this family. I have followed Marie across the ocean, and she remarried with 2 young sons. One being my Grandfather.
If any one can help me with this puzzle I would appreicate the help. I am still trying to find out what happened to William. I believe he would have died between 1868 and 1869 in Germany. As Marie and the boys immigrated in 1869. I think with the new husband, but not sure if the marriage took place before or after they immigrated.
