Default Laura Schlagentweith

I know very little about her - any help much appreciated!

Name - "official" name and what they were known as Laura Schlagentweith
Date and place of birth 1863 Friedrichshafen, Bodenseekreis, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany
Names of parents Johann David Schlagentweith and Rosine Katharine Kussmaul
Date and place of baptism - if applicable Don't know
Details of each of his or her marriages - if any 11 May 1889 at Stuttgart, Wurttemberg, to Leonhard Friedrich Otto Meyer.
Occupation(s) - if any Don't know
Addresses where they lived (including county if in UK) - and please list which censuses you have or haven't found him/her on. Sommerstr 9, Furth, Bavaria, Germany, in 1918
Date, place and cause of death Don't know
Date and place of burial / cremation. Don't know
Details of will / administration of their estate - if applicable Don't know
Memorial inscription - if any Don't know

All I do know is that she and her husband had two children - Elisabeth born about 1890 and a much younger son Ludwig. I will reread a family memoir that I have to see if there is any other info about her in it. Also it is just possible there is a photo of her somewhere so I will have a look for that.

Another spelling of surname is Schlagintweit.

Having read part 1 of the memoir, it seems she was born in Wurtenburg and she died not long before 1950 in Furth, having been injured in an air raid on Nuremberg.

Thanks, but it's a very common name, Allan. I had a look at the Bavarian WW1 soldiers on ancestry and there were loads of Meyers from Furth in there but I don't think any of them were related to me. All the German surnames seem to be very common, much like Welsh surnames!
