My GGGM Maria Schnurmann (maiden name) lived 1800 to 1881, in Schmieheim, Baden, and is buried in the Schmieheim Jewish cemetery.  She is not listed in the town records as having a husband.  If she had been married to a man also named Schnurmann I would expect to find that in the town records, which seem accurate in all respects.  She had three children so it seems to me unlikely she was an unwed mother three times over.  Could she have married outside the Jewish faith?  If so, would that have not been recorded?  Is there any other reason she might not have a husband recorded in the town records?
