Marriage Record of Lorenz Jaeger and Catharina Dannenmann

Today I had the pleasure of chatting with some descendants of the second wife of my Great Great Grandfather, Lawrence Yeager/Lorenz Jaeger. After Great Great Grandpa's first wife, Maria Schweighardt, passed away, he married the widow of John Christian Dannenmann, whose maiden name was Catherine Geigel. By searching for the marriage record of Lorenz Jaeger and a bride named Catherine, this record was retrieved. The couple was married in Erie County, Ohio on February 25, 1892. The second Mrs. Yeager passed away on March 15, 1911. She was buried at Sandusky's Oakland Cemetery, where her first husband was also buried. Here is information about the Yeager/Jaeger family, as it appeared in the 1900 U.S. Census. Theirs was a blended family. I am sure that Mrs. Catherine Yeager got to know my great grandfather, Andrew Yeager, and his siblings. In the census listing as it appears at, the surnames were spelled Jueger and Dunneman. Always keep in mind that in surnames of German descent, many spelling variations may be found!
