11. Johann Georg Lather and Louise Gade.
The following were consecrated in marriage on the twelfth of December in the year of the Lord eighteen-hundred fifty-eight without proclamation because they reported that they already had a child with each other, after written certification from the sector court and the district court that there were no civil or legal constraints regarding the marriage standing in the way and after canonical requirements were fulfilled:
Johann Georg Lather, up and coming citizen and day laborer here, twenty-seven years four months and eighteen days old [born on 24 July 1831], the legitimately born, surviving, single son of the deceased Heinrich Lather, former citizen and cow herder here in Kirtorf, and Sophia Katharina née Bräuer; and
Louise Gade, twenty-three years nine months and sixteen days old [born on 26 February 1825], single daughter born of the marriage of Peter Gade, citizen and wagon maker and Katharina née Pfeiffer.
The groom explained that he recognized that the bride’s illegitimate child was his own. This child, a son named Heinrich, was born on the eighteenth of October of this year and was baptized on the twenty-fourth of the same month.
The witnesses were:
1. Balthasar Wahl, citizen and farmer here, and
2. Peter Gade, citizen and wagon maker here, the bride’s father, who signed the present document next to the bridegroom and me, the vicar and minister who performed the marriage.
