Is Johanne Pauline Ernestine Bolte b. 1796 in Prussia possibly his Johann Heinrich Bolte's Daughter daughter?

+4 votes
My grandmother of 5 generations from Prussia, b. 1796, was a Johanne Pauline Ernestine Bolte. She married August Friedrich Ludwig Ernst Behling. There are no trees or records that record her parents. But I found 4 of her male children carry the name Heinrich which doesn't come from her husband's side. One of her sons has the name Friedrich Heinrich Christian (Behling), and if J. P. E. Bolte was a daughter of Johann Heinrich Bolte, this would have been the name of one of her siblings who had died at an early age. The record shows she is from Prussia Germany, the same general area and the Johann Heinrich were active making children at this time.

This Falkenhagen was in the Duchy Lippe, meaning it was never part of Prussia. It remained it's own political entity within the various conglomerations that eventually became the German state including the Holy Roman Empire until 1806, followed by the Rheinbund until 1813, then Deutscher Bund until 1866, Norddeutshcer Bund until 1871, then Deutsches Reich. There is, however a Falkenhagen in Brandenburg which was a constituent part of Prussia. It depends, therefore, on how reliable the Prussian origin is whether this is the person.
I have that she was born in May 1796 in:  Rischenau, Schwalenberg, Lippe. So I think these would be her parents! Thank you for the information!
