Psalm 90.12

"So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom."

The Bible reference above was noted in the Death Church record for my g-g grandmother, Maria Monath in the last column of the page below.  I am not familiar enough with the ways of our German immigrants and am finding interesting things like this in my research.

The church record was found in a collection for the Trinity United Church of Christ, located at 3229 York Road in Manchester, Maryland (a.k.a. Zion Lutheran Church, 1760, for German Reformed and Lutheran congregations). 

As I continue to research my Monath family, I plan to continue to learn about this practice.  Should you have clues to this mystery, I would love to hear from you.  Just send me a quick email message. 

I hope to hear from you.
