Mary Brueggemann Barlag, a brief introduction

I haven't written much about some of Clamor's other children.  His daughter, Anna Marie Ilsebien Brueggemann was from his first marriage and she was very young when they came to Cleveland.  The ships records has her listed as six months old but this seems wrong given that her mother had died and her father had remarried.  My best guess is that she was three at the time of their arrival.

She married Friedrich John Barlag on December 22, 1870 at the family church, Trinity.  She was only 15 years old at the time.  The Barlag family were neighbors of the Brueggemans, just living a house or two away as listed on the 1870 census. 

She was known as Mary in the census records.   I have included the family group sheet that lists her family details.    She had seven children, six who lived to adulthood.  Her husband is listed on multiple census forms as a Tailor and in 1900, two sons who still lived at home were listed as Cloak Makers.  In the 1886 Cleveland City Directory, there are two Frederick Barlags listed both living on Monroe Street.  One is listed as a tailor and the other is listed as working for Phypers and Barlag.  In an earlier directory, a firm is listed F & W Barlag, tailors.  

I don't know too much else about the Barlag family.  I'll keep working on this.
