1. Carolina Wilhelmine Beck

Johann Jacob Caspersen 2 3

  • Born: 1798
  • Marriage (1): Carolina Wilhelmine Beck <18 Oct 1829> in <Bov (Bau), Åbenrå, Sønderjylland (Schleswig-Holstein), Denmark> 1
  • Died: <3 May 1869>, <Bylderup, Tønder, Denmark> at age 71 4

   Another name for Johann was Jorgen Jacob Caspersen.

  Research Notes:

The transcribed death record gives his parents as Peter Caspersen and Hedewig Petersen. The only thing that throws this in doubt is Johann's wife's name, which is recorded as Caroline Hedewig Beck. Knowing how naming went in those days, however, it is possible that Caroline/Carolina had both Wilhelmine and Hedewig as middle names.

  Death Notes:

Death date in doubt. There is a death record for Johann Jacob Caspersen at age 71 on 3 May 1869 in Bylderup, Tønder, Denmark, but his wife's name is given as Caroline Hedewig Beck. Other records have "our" Johann Jacob's wife as Caroline Wilhelmine Beck.

  Noted events in his life were:

• Occupation: goldmith(?). The marriage record has his name as "Johann Jacob Caspersen Goldschmiedt." Does Goldschmiedt mean "goldsmith" in Danish?

Johann married Carolina Wilhelmine Beck, daughter of Andreas Beck and Gerthro Johannsen, <18 Oct 1829> in <Bov (Bau), Åbenrå, Sønderjylland (Schleswig-Holstein), Denmark>.1

  Marriage Notes:

A marriage record for 18 Oct 1829 in Bov gives the bride's name simply as Caroline Beck. It also lists the grooms parents as Peter Caspersen and Hedewig Petersen. Those are the same parents who appear in the death record for a Johann Jacob Casperson on 3 May 1869. The death record give's Johann's wife's name as Caroline Hedewig Beck. That was certainly the wife from 18 Oct 1829 in Bov. Caroline/Carolina's middle name(s) then are in doubt. Did she have both Wilhelmine and Hedewig? Or was this Johann's wife an entirely different person?
