On This Day - RIENECKER and MERCER

22 Oct 1891 (119 years ago) - William Albert RIENECKER was born at Ropeley, Queensland, Australia. He was a son of Carl Ludwig RIENECKER and Emilie Auguste Albertine HAHN, and the husband of Margaret Wilson RITCHIE. [Mother's uncle]

23 Oct 1823 (187 years ago) - Ralph MERCER was baptised (as MARCER) at Kirbymoorside, North Yorkshire, England. His parents were William MERCER and Ruth AGAR. The baptism register names both sets of grandparents. [1st cousin 4 times removed, Peacock line]

If you are researching these families, I will gladly provide full details of my sources, which include parish registers.

The idea for this weekly feature came from Linda McCauley's Documenting the Details. I use On This Day, a companion product for The Master Genealogist, to generate a list of events for the week.
