  • Notes 

    • Wilhelmine Johanne Amalie Ducker was the last and ninth child of Gerhard and Regina Ducker. Gerhard was 61 years old and is listed as a gardener on her birth record. He probably worked on the grounds of the castle that was in Furstenau, Germany. Her mother was 42 years old and there was a span of 20 years of childbirth. The oldest child, Christian was 19 when Amalie was born.
      In 1893, Christian and the 3 youngest, with their parents,sailed to the US from Bremerhaven , Germany to New York on board the vessel the "Havel" arriving in New York on May 4, 1893. Christain had been living in Boston and apparently earned enough money to go back to Germany and bring his parents and the 3 youngest children to America.
      Amelia was always called Minnie and her namesakes were Wilhelmine Mann from Fursentau and Amalie Schroder, from Schilthorst.
      Minnie met her husband, George Carl Lang, when she was learning English in the school near where they lived in Mass.
      George thought that she was the prettiest girl he had seen and fell in love with her. Minnie was fair with blond hair and blue/grey eyes and somewhat taller than George.
      Carl and Gus Lang owned a pet shop at 11 Portland Street, Boston, Mass. and Minnie also worked in the bakery with the Duckers. Minnie was a kind, generous and loving mother. However, she was also very excitable and controlling- She worked as a dance instructor and at the bakery and pet store. She liked to crochet and sew and was always making clothes for the family. They owned a two family house and rented out during the depression- but the tenants had a hard time paying the rent, but she let them live there anyhow. She had a soft heart. She lived at 13 Windsor Road, Somerville, Massachusetts at the time of her death. She is buried in the Ducker Family plot at the Village Cemetery in Weymouth, Massachusetts.
