Weller Anna Margareta [Female] b. 27 DEC 1754 - d. 24 NOV 1794 Girkhausen

One source gives her parents as Georg Mannus Weller and Anna Gertraud Althaus. I cannot find independent records of this relationship, though it is plausible. Margaretha's birth does not seem to have been recorded in the Girkhausen church book.

Homrighausen Johannes [Male] b. BEF 1675 Wunderthausen - d. 9 MAR 1745 Wunderthausen

Tenant at the house name variously as Weißkopfs and Seimes. The latter derives from a dialect term for honey, so the occupants were probably bee keepers at one time (honey being the only real sweetener available). He was known as the village as der alte Weißkopf (white head), hence the other name.

Homrighausen Johann Ludwig [Male] b. 22 MAR 1804 Wunderthausen - d. 3 AUG 1878 Wunderthausen

He was born in Brückeschneiders house in Wunderthausen. He inherited it from his father, but it may have had little if any agricultural land. In his early youth he was employed as a shepherd in neighboring Diedenshausen and then as teacher in the small settlements at Dachsloch and Langewiese. However, in 1833 he began what would be a lifetime of employment as one of the school teachers in Diedenshausen. His family continued to live in Wunderthausen (2km away), but during school he was only there two nights a week.

Originally, his compensation was mostly in grain though he was later paid a cash salary. It was meagre, and like most men in the region he pursued a side craft to help make ends meet. Homrighausen carved spoons, a common trade in Wunderthausen. His birthday was the same as that of Kaiser Wilhelm I, which was a great source of pride.

He married twice. All five children of his first marriage died in childhood, and his wife died shortly after the birth of the last child. The children of his marriage to Amalia Riedesel were healthier
