Paul Gietzen and (Anna Mendges?)

Paul Gietzen was born about 1600 and was of Bremm, Rheinland-Palatinate, Germany.

Paul married Anna Mendges
(born in Sankt Aldegund, Cochem-Zell, Rheinland-Palatinate, Germany), according to the research of Stephan Eberhard. I have yet to confirm this with primary records.

Paul's child (probably by Anna) is:

  1. Margaretha Gietzen, married Johannes Schienen 19 Nov 1652 in Bremm, Rheinland-Palatinate, Germany.

In searching the Bremm kirchenbuch (church book), I found a record of a Petro (Peter) Gietzen and his wife Anna having a son Joannes christened in 1676 (see record image below). One of the witnesses was Joannes Schienen. There is a strong chance that Peter Gietzen may have been related to Johannes Schienen's wife Margaretha Gietzen but it is not conclusive that he was related. While Peter could have been Margaretha's brother, if related, he could also be a nephew, cousin, etc.
