Continuing on with the genealogy of the women who married into the Guill family of Luxembourg, the Modert branch that married Michael Guill will be presented.

Eva Guill

Michael Guill 1845-1881—Catherine Revenig 1842-1920

Michel Guill 1820-1847—Eve Modert 1818-1895

Michel Guill 1773-1850—Ann Marie Lethal 1778-1844

Petrus Guill 1757-unk—Ann Marie Beck 1739-1811

Johann Guill unk-1758-Margaret Hardt unk-1756

  1. Eve Modert born 30 October 1818 in Macthum, Luxembourg to Henri Modert and Ann Marie Fischer.  

Eve was married to Michael Guill 18 January 1842 in Grevenmacher and they had 3 children: Anna Marie 1843, Michael 1845, and Barbara 1847. Her husband, Michael died in 1847 and Eve married Mathias Donckel 13 Dec 1848. They had Maria and Catherine.

Eve died 23 November 1895 in Grevenmacher.

     2. Henri Modert was born 18 Sep 1790 in Machtum to Nicolas Modert and Catherina Heim. 

Henri was married 29 January 1812 to Marie Fischer in Macthum. They had the following children: Michael 1812-1831, Elisabeth 1815-1883, Catherina 1823-1891, Barbe 1826-1892, and Heinrich 1829-1849.

Henri can be found in the following censuses in Wormeldange: 1843, 1846, 1847, 1849, 1851, 1852, 1855, and 1858 He was a vigneron which is a winemaker. The region in Luxembourg that the Modert family lived in is known for winemaking. The region is part of the Moselle valley and it produces white wine. There is a festival in the area in September featuring Riesling wine.

Henri died 1 Jan 1864 in Machtum. 

    3. Nicolas Modert was baptized 12 June 1752 in Machtum and was the illegitimate child of Angela Gorgen and Nicolas Modert. Nicolas was born 4 months after his parents married.

Nicolas was married to Anna Catherina Hein 15 Dec 1778 in Machtum.  The only child found so far is Henri 1790. The records are scant so I suspect there are other children. I suspect he was also a winemaker.

Nicolas death see below.

Anna Catherine Hein was baptized 28 Dec 1755 in Machtum. Her parents are Wilhelm Hein and Elisabeth Schneider. She died 27 Apr 1796. 

   Wilhelm Hein died 7 Jan 1779 in Machtum.

   Elisabeth Schneider died 21 Sep 1780 in Machtum.

    4. Nicolas Modert was born to Nicolas Modert and Catherina Wolf. It is unknown when he was born but subsequent records indicate he was born in Machtum.

Nicolas was married to Angela Gorgen 28 Feb 1752 in Machtum. They had the following children: Nicolas 1752, Anna Maria 1755, Johan 1757, Maria Magdalena 1759, Catherina 1762.

Nicolas death see below.

Angela Gorgen was born in Nittel according to the marriage record, her father was Friderich Gorgen but unfortunately her mother wasn’t named. Angela died 12 Apr 1793 in Machtum.

    5. Nicolas Modert it is unknown when he was born. His parents are not named in any records with him.

Nicolas was married to Catherina Wolff the date is unknown. They had at least 3 children: Nicolas, Eva, and Johann. All 3 children are found in marriage records with Nicolas and Catherine listed as the parents.

Nicolas death see below although it is unlikely this record belongs to this person.

Catherine Wolff unknown when she was born and no parent names have been found. Died 26 June 1777 in Machtum.

One record for Nicolas Modert death has been found I have not been able to figure out which Nicolas it belongs to. The date is 26 March 1794 in Matchum. The record is below:

 

I have also found a notarial record from 1778 for a Nicolas Modert and names Catherine Wolff, Angela Gorgen, and the children of Nicolas and Angela Gorgen. That is all I have been able to recognize on this 6 page document.

FISCHER

  1. Marie Fischer was born 22 feb 1790 in Machtum to Mathias Fischer and Catherine Abel.

See above entry with Henri Modert for marriage and children. Marie can be found on the 1843, 1846 and 1847 censuses in Wormeladge.

Marie died 16 March 1849 in Macthum.

     2. Mathias Fischer was born 1751 in Nittel, Germany. His parents are Nicolas Fischer and Anne Marie Conter.

Mathias married Ann Catherine Zimmer in 1779 and they had 1 child, Pierre 1780-1840. Ann Catherine died in 1782. Mathias then married Catherine Abel in 1783 in Machtum. They had 4 children: Jean 1785, Mathias 1786, Marie 1790, and Michel 1792.

Mathias died 21 August 1796 in Macthum.

Catherine Abel was born 5 July 1760 in Nittel, Germany to Joannis Abel and Elisabetha Lelig. Marriage to Mathias Fischer above. Died 13 August 1834 on Wormeldange, Luxembourg.

Most of the ancestors are from either Nittel Germany and Macthum, Luxembourg. They are very close to each other and are separated by the Moselle River. See map below.

    3. Nicolas Fischer and Anne Marie Conter, no other information is know other than they are on the first marriage record for Mathias. 

A note on the unknown births and marriages. The records for Machtum begin on 1752. I also looked in the Wormeldange records and they begin in 1718.
