Tombstone Tuesday: Jordan
Two tombstones with a German text. The plaque on the stone on the right has fallen off, someone put it upright at the foot of the stone.
The text on the stone on the left reads: Hier ruht in Gott Frau Emilie Jordan geb. Muller *5.8.1845 +10.6.1927 Ruhe sanft. (Here rests in God Mrs. Emilie Jordan née Muller, born 5 August 1845, died 10 June 1927. Rest in peace.) According to her death record on Genlias, the Dutch database of birth, marriage and death records, Natalie Emilie Müller, daughter of Ferdinand Müller and Amalie Kraftzig, widow of Friedrich Jordan, died on 10 June 1927 in Doorn, at the age of 81.
To the right of Emilie rests her daughter Martha. The inscription (also in German) reads: Hier ruht in Gott meine iniggeliebte Frau, unsere herzensgute Mutter, Martha Turke geb. Jordan, *8.10.1880 +28.9.1921. Die Todesstunde schlug zu früh, doch Gott der Herr bestimmte sie. (Here rests in God my dearly beloved wife, our heartily good mother, Martha Turke née Jordan, born 8 October 1880, died 28 September 1921. The hour of her death came too early, but was decided by God our Lord.) From the death record on Genlias: Martha Maria Wilhelmina Jordan, daughter of Friedrich Julius Jordan and Natali Emilie Müller, wife of Gottlieb Samuel Adolf Turke, died on 28 September 1921 in Doorn, at the age of 40.
