Ok. Thanks! My brother and I have searched a lot (many years before and after, a few times over), but found nothing about it yet. Eighter this one is really challenging or we're doing something wrong here, lol.. But we'll keep looking.

Regarding „Sophia“....
-search for her death record in order to perhaps get an additional indicator pointing to her possible year of birth

-closely research her father‘s immediate(!) family ... as you will find, he had another daughter who had „Sophie/Sophia“ among her given names

Hi, Vera! I'd like to ask for some advice on finding records. We must be missing some, because we've tried searching for these you've mentioned (Sophia's death and the other Sophie(a) baptism) and haven't found them. We did that by passing page by page of the books on the same region of the ones we've found, but we couldn't see the lastname Erbig/Herwig (or something that resembles it) anywhere. What would you recommend?

Also, according to the record we found on the death of our Sophie's husband (Christoph Gottfried Dänzler), he was too young (only 28 years old, one year after the birth of their daughter) when he died, so we wonder if Sophie may have married again and then her death record could be under the new husband's lastname. In this case, to look for a second marriage, should we search for her maiden name (Erbig/Herwig) or her widow's name (Dänzler/Tänzer)?

Thanks a lot!!

Apparently.

You need to pay attention to both names since the priest may have recorded:

Sophia Erbig Wittwe von / verwittwete ....Dänzler/Dentzler

or

Wittwe Sophia Dänzler/Dentzler geb. / geborene Erbig

Thank you, Vera! We didn't have enough time to search for Sophie Erbig's possible second marriage, but we followed your tips and learned many things this weekend.
