Ernestine Wilhelmine Moll




On ___ 1861, at ___

To Wilhelm Friedrich Lentz, on April 28, 1881, at ___, Braunschweig

March 24, 1883, at Frankfort




Franciscus Xaverius Moll, Dorothea Luisa Moll (later Ristow), née Heydtke

Anna Maria Louisa Moll, Franz Xaver Moll



We speculate that Ernestine Wilhelmine Moll was the second child of Franciscus Xaverius Moll. She is not mentioned in the death notices of her mother or father, probably because she long predeceased them. We do not know, however, whether she had other origins.

We speculate, also, that she may have died in childbirth, although no children's graves were found.
