Part 913bf – Brunhammer Fürst – 1818 GGGGG-Grandmother Anne Marie Bruhamer's Passing

22 September 2017

Good Day,

Last night flipping through electronic pages of the digitized images of Baptism, Marriage, and Death registers I was able to find the Death Registration for GGGGG-(5-times)-Great-Grandmother Anne Marie (née Fürst) Bruhamer. She passed away at one of her son's home in Hochstatt, Haut-Rhin at 10:00 pm on the 25th of July 1818. The son who reported the passing was GGGG-(4-times)-Great-Grandfather Sébastien.

GGGGG-Great-Grandmother Anne Marie was 68 years old at the time of her death, as it was reported, and further, she was recorded as the widow of GGGGG-(5-times)-Great-Grandfather Conrad Bruhamer.

Here is the entry as recorded in French.

This is my attempt at transcribing the document. I am having a bit of a problem transcribing, reading, the actual name of the street of GGGG-Great-Grandfather Sébastien's home.
