Hermann Bernard Köster

MotherMaria Catharina Elisabeth von der Haar2 (April 17, 1793 - February 26, 1861)
ChartsSelected Descendants of Hermann Gerhard Köster
Descendants of Johan Henrich Köster (c. 1712)
Name Variation Hermann Bernard Köster was also known as Johann Hermann. 
Birth*16 August 1826He was born on 16 August 1826, at Dalvers bei Berge, Kreis Bersenbrück, Hanover.3 
He was the son of Hermann Gerhard Köster and Maria Catharina Elisabeth von der Haar.1,2 
Baptism19 August 1826Hermann Bernard Köster was baptized on 19 August 1826, at St. Servatius Catholic Church, Berge, Kreis Bersenbrück, Hanover; Godparents were Christopher Brokhaus, Bernd Witte and Margr. Elisabeth Bruns. This record calls Bernard "aus Höfen", which I think is from the farm or Höf. 
Marriage*6 May 1852He married Margaretha Maria Adelheid Krümpelmann, daughter of Gerard Herman Krümpelmann and Anna Margaretha Adelheid Kühlen, on 6 May 1852, at St. Servatius Catholic Church, Berge, Kreis Bersenbrück, Hanover;
The record lists Herman as a "heuerling" or tenant farmer living on a rented piece of land. These renters worked for the farm owner for a contracted time and also paid rent. They kept animals and had a small piece of land on which to raise crops and to garden. The record lists Herman's parents as Herman Gerhard Köster and Elisabeth von der Haar, who were also "heuerling" farmers in Dalvers.

"This marriage record also records a dispensation to the "third degree". If we look back in the ancestry, we see that Herman Bernard Köster's grandfather, Johan Herman Köster was first married to Phenemia Alheid Krümpelman and may have had two sons with her. Phenemia was likely the sister of Johan Bernd Krümpelmann, the grandfather of Margaretha Maria Adelheid. Since the Catholic Church equates marriage ties and blood ties, Herman Bernard and Margaretha Maria Adelheid would have been half-first cousins."
