Dear Friends, remembering my Great Grandmother, Minna Demmel nee Henselück. Today, 15th December, is her birthday. She was born in 1870 in Nuestettin Germany, 148 years ago.
Minna married George Demmel, in St Boniface Church Mile End Old Town, London in 1888 at the tender age of 17.
In 1890 gave birth to my Grand Mother, Amalia Demmel, when Minna was 19 years old.
In 1892, their son, my Great Uncle, was born. George Francis Demmel served in the Royal Navy during WW1.
In 1893, their youngest daughter, Minnie Demmel was born.
RIP Oma, your family remembers you with love and pride.
Their WW1 story is told in my book, Mizpah Cousins: Life, love and perilous predicaments during the Great Was era.
