Re: How to make sense of two death records that don't make sense to me #germany

Two sisters/cousins Henriette and Frederiecke Lichtensted married two men, both dancing masters. One of the men was  Levi Lichtenstein, the other Israel Levi Lichtenstein, who may  have been the brother of the first, or even to judge by their names his son. Each couple have a daughter, called Seraphine/a  who was called after some relative of a previous generation.  Henriette's daughter, b. 1813, marries Mr Wetzlar and has a son Leopold and dies aged 88 in 1901.     Frederiecke's daughter, b. 1806 doesn't,  and dies first. Her death, age 84,  is reported in 1890, possibly by an unmarried sister/ cousin called Henriette Lichtenstein  (although her aunt Henriette could also still have been alive in 1806?)   Henriette was a really popular name in Germany for years. 
I think it's very unlikely that two sisters even with different mothers would share a name, but cousins born around the same time often did.
