Re: Marriage of Fredrick George Schneeberg to Wilhelmina "Minnie" Maack on 29 April 1891, in New York #germany #usa
What you see as Louth Tarbor is actually "Luth. Pastor," as the words "Official Station" refer not to a place but rather "...is taken and deemed to mean the office by virtue of which said person solemnizes such a marriage; and to describe such office in returns of marriages the words "justice of the peace," "minister of the gospel," "priest," or "rabbi," only shall be used." ("Registration of Vital Statistics" chapter, in Charles V. Chapin, Superintendent of Health of the City of Providence, 1901). Rev. Leo Koenig was the Lutheran pastor named here, and his family residence at 80 W. 12th St. in Manhattan matches that named in family obituaries. He was affiliated with the St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Congregation--see attached articles.
