records and documents:
Hand-written, wax-sealed birth/baptism certificates from home towns for self, wife, and first two children, who were born in Schwirsen, Pomerania.

additional information:
Meyer's Gazeteer [3] does not list a "Cölpin" or "Coelpin" in Pomerania. However, according to information from Dieter Wallschläger of Berlin, she was born in Pinnow, Kreis Regenwalde, and baptized in Cölpin, Kreis Kölberg, Pomerania. [However, the baptism certificate I have says she was born in "Coelpin".] These locations are quite near the kreis (county) of Cammin, where her husband and first two children were born, so this seem logical. My map of Pomerania (c. 1928), shows a village of "Kölpin" in Kölberg, so apparently the spelling changed. Trinity (Milwaukee) church records list her birthplace in one place as "Pinnow", but as "Kölpin" or "Cölpin" in other places. Her maiden is spelled "Barthelt" in some entries, though in at least one case, that is crossed out and "Bartel" is written in. There was a family of Barthelts in Trinity at the time.

The information from Dieter also says that their marriage banns were posted in Rottnow, but they were married in Pinnow. The Trinity records say they were married in Rottnow in 1848.

Her second child, Wilhelmine, was less than 16 weeks old when she departed Hamburg and spent more than 11 weeks on board the Aurora.
