    This record is a little harder to explain. Elizabeth Bartholomay (1851-1912) married John George Becker (1847-UNKNOWN) at Trinity Church, Baltimore. John had several siblings, Emma, John A, and Benjamin (passed before 1860). Emma Becker, his sister, never married. This is her death certificate. As far as I know, they had the same parents. The parents are listed as John D Becker and Wilhelmina Walz. From what I can tell from other users on Ancestry.com, the Walz family moved away from Maryland and only Wilhelmina stayed behind. There are trees on Ancestry.com for the Walz family that go further back in time. The name of the informant is significant on this record as this surname has been linked with census data for Wilhelminia.
    The name of the Trinity Church book I referred to is called "Trinity German Lutheran Church Records 1853-1877 by Gary B. Ruppert". I will photocopy the page with the marriage of Elizabeth Bartholomay and John Becker. I do not know if there is other data points for the Bartholomay family in this book. I see there are a few entries in the index for them but I do not know if they are all related.
