Grand Duchy of Schleswig-Holstein
Joachim (2Heinrich, 1Heinrich) Wiese of Schleswig-Holstein
Joachim Wiese was born 1772 in Ratjendorf, Probstei, Duchy of Holstein. During Joachim's life, Schleswig-Holstein, although a German province, was ruled by the King of Denmark. Growing up an ethnic German under Danish rule was probably difficult. History tells us that ethnic Germans began a series of revolts which culminated in the ill-fated 1848 Revolution.
In 1802 Joachim married Ester Stuhr b. 1775 Probstei, Duchy of Holstein. Although neither Joachim nor Ester immigrated, two of their three known children did--Joachim and Claus.
Joachim and Ester died about 1830 in Probstei, Duchy of Holstein.
