Mary Schon

ID#33, d. 1877
Father: not yet identified
Mother: not yet identified

Birth date: unknown
Birth place: Germany.12 The birth location of Alsace-Lorraine is an area that changed hands between France and Germany many times through the years. I have read that for a person whose birth country keeps changing back and forth between France and Germany, it is likely that they were born in the Alsace-Lorraine region. In fact, it has been suggested that it can be easier for a genealogist to simply treat Alsace-Lorraine as the birth place without specifying which country it was in at the time. Mary's country of birth was consistently recorded as Germany in every federal census that I have seen to date.

Mary married Nikolaus Kuhn before 1872 in Germany.3

Mary died in 1877.3
