Mollenbrock, Belle, Lippe

Anne Marie Ilsabine Möllenbrock★ of Belle married Johann Carl Düvels★ of Belle in 1718.

I cannot find the baptism of Ann Marie lsabine Mollenbrock which may have occurred before the records start in 1691 (as available through LDS.). The marriage record does not state her father; only that she was from Belle. Marriage of women in their late 20s and early 30s was relatively common in Belle.

Since there is no way to find her parents (given the records as available to me) I have just taken a brief look at Mollenbrocks in the village of Belle in general.

When a House (farm) number was give for a Mollenbrock record it was always No 22.
