Meta Petermann

Birth

January 18, 1886.

Notes:

  • I cannot find the birth record of Meta Petermann in the civil records in New Jersey. Her birth information was taken from family history and information provided by St Matthew's German Church in Hoboken.

  • According to Saint Matthew's Trinity Lutheran Parish, 57 Eight Street, Hoboken 07030 (201) 659-4499, Meta Helene Petermann was born in Hoboken on January 18, 1886 to Bernhard Petermann and Sophie Steuer and was baptized on March 15, 1901. She was 15 years old in 1901.

Confirmation

Meta was confirmed on Palm Sunday 1901 at St Matthaus German Lutheran Church in Hoboken, New Jersey (St. Matthew).

Note:

  • In a letter dated September 15, 1999 from Saint Matthew's church in Hoboken in response to my inquiry regarding Meta's baptism, they listed March 15, 1901 as the date of Meta's baptism.

    They also indicated that their records are kept by date and not by name. Since Meta's confirmation and baptism apparently occurred when she was 15 years old, St Matthew's is not a reliable source of birth information for the Petermanns.

  • According to information obtained at the Hoboken Public Library, this church was founded in 1858 by the Rev. V. M. Wossifle, a native of Prussia. According to information obtained at the Jersey City Library, the founder was Rev. C. M. Wossidlo.

    The present church was built on the corner of Hudson and 8th Streets in 1877.

    The Rev. Eirich was pastor until 1890. Other pastors who served in this church were; the Rev. Alexander Richter and the Rev. Herman Bruckner.
