Families at Christiansbrunn

This list attempts to gather all the married couples who lived at Christiansbrunn. Married men, wives, and families are invisible in most membership catalogs produced for Christiansbrunn, which typically record only single brothers, young men, and boys. Information about them often appears elsewhere. This list is surely incomplete and will be updated as we learn additional information.
