I don't know if it's the format of the church records -- light on details -- or that his name varies in the records, but Jürgen Heinrich (a.k.a. Johann Jürgen) GEINER is kind of mysterious to me. Jürgen was probably born between 1727 and 1733, dates gleaned from the ages that were listed in records many years after the fact. Jürgen was said to be 47 when he remarried in 1780, but was listed as 72 when he died in 1799. Although many of the church records from the Borgholzhausen area are already indexed, where and when Jürgen was baptized and his first marriage are unknown.
