Family's record of Maria Charlotte Fiegenbaum's birth & baptism

This is a portion of a family register which appears to have been kept by Hermann Heinrich and Wilhelmine Florentine Charlotte (Wehrmann) Fiegenbaum in which they recorded the names and the dates of the births, baptisms, and sometimes the deaths, of their 12 children. Maria Charlotte Fiegenbaum was the 7th child.

A transcription of this entry is:

Unser Tochter Maria, Scharlotte geboren den
22 März morgans um 9 uhr Im Jahr 1867
Und getauft den 19 april

A translation is:

Our daughter Maria Scharlotte born on the
22nd of March at 9 o'clock in the morning in the year 1867
And baptized on the 19th of april

Maria Charlotte's birth and baptism were also recorded in the baptism register of the deutsche evangelische Kirche am Charette (known since 1957 as Immanuels United Church of Christ) at Holstein, Warren County, Missouri, USA. The sponsor was Charlotta Wehrmann.

Maria Charlotte was confirmed in that same church on 13 February 1881. According to the confirmation register, which also made note of her date of birth, Maria Charlotte was the only confirmand listed in the class in February. On 10 April 1881, fourteen more young people were confirmed into the church. And another young woman was confirmed on 3 June 1881.
