  • Notes 
    • In 2012, I visit New Zealand in November and December. I had the chance to meet relatives down under. One of them was Ralph Dearlove, also a keen family historian. He is a descendant of Abraham Honore and therefor also a Devantier descendant. Abraham Honore went to New Zealand and back in Denmark he left siblings and parents. When I was down under Ralph asked me if I could take a look at one of Abraham Honore's siblings. Her name was Marie Honore. The reason for Ralph's interest was her dead year. It was 1848. In that year Denmark were in war with Germany. So Ralph had speculated whether her much too early death, had something to do with that.

      Back in Denmark I was in for a surprise. After a look in the reformed Church book for the year 1848, I found the entry for Marie Honore and the death date (May 30 1848) we knew, was OK. But there were added more information. It turned out that she was wounded in a bombing on May 8. That was new for me, I had never heard about a bombing of Fredericia May 8 1848. I had always thought the big battle about Fredericia was in 1849. So it was back to the history books..

      After a little searching and reading, I learned that it was good enough. But it all turns out to be something different, than I thought. I mentioned earlier that we were in war with Germany, It's not absolutely true. The war from 1848-1850 was more or less a civil war. The Duchies of Slesvig-Holsten was under the Danish king. And in early 1848 they tried to separate from Denmark. After some negation war broke out. In the beginning Denmark lost several battles and was more or less on the run. The soldiers from Slesvig/Holstein with help from Prussia discovered that the soldiers had left Fredericia, and the night of May 2-3. They occupied the City and hoisted a German Flag. That was too much for the Danish Navy and on May 8 they arrived outside Fredericia with 6 cannon boats. They started bombarding the Prussian troops and they retaliated with their guns. And a battle started....
      As it is with wars, it's not only the soldiers who suffered losses. Manny of the Danish Cannon balls hit civilian houses and places in Fredericia, with several casualties among civilians.
      Back to Marie Honore, so it was not, as I had believed, the Germans that wounded her. . No not at all, she was hit by a Danish cannonball or whatever, they used. And later she died of her wounds.
      Another thing happened that day, which affected the Reformed congregation in . The Gunpowder Tower together with the fortress burned or blew up; it meant that, when the Danish soldiers came back to Fredericia after May 25. The Reformed Church was confiscated and used as ammunitions depot for the rest of the 3-year war.
      Sometimes a little question gives a long answer.
