Marie Minna Mathilde Hoffmann was my great grandmother. She was born 7 FEB 1863 in Wierzoncka, Prussia. She was married twice. Her first marriage was to Karl (Carl) Bessert. She had 2 children, my grandmother Helene Hedwig Bessert and Walter Ernst Bessert. Her second marriage was to Johann Leonhard Dubro with whom she had one son, Alexander Leonhard Dubro. According to the marriage certificate between Marie and Johann, her parents were Julius Hoffmann and Anna Juliann Wendtlandt.
I really want to know about Marie’s parents – Anna Juliann Wendtlandt and Julius Hoffmann. One thing I know is that Julius Hoffmann liked to paint. I still have a single watercolor he did, though I do not know anything about the town he portrays.
Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.
