Researching Downeast Maine and Maritime Canada Families Together

Grace Dean Capen, b. 1876 Pembroke Maine; m. John Martin Bieler of Germany

Grace Dean Capen was born 8 May 1876 at Pembroke, Maine, the daughter of David Ross Capen and his wife Sarah A. (Dean) Capen.  Her paternal grandparents were John and Sarah Lydia (Leighton) Capen.   I don't have the parents of Sarah A. Dean, who was born in Pembroke, Maine, in November of 1852.

 

On 17 Jan 1903 at Eastport, Maine, Grace Dean Capen married John Martin Bieler, who was born in Germany about 1873.  His parents are named on his marriage license but they are very difficult to decipher: perhaps Conrad Muhlbaurn and Christina Bauselder.  Perhaps Conrad's last name was Bieler but it was assumed and not mentioned.

At the time, John Martin Bieler was the pastor at the Central Congregational Church in Eastport.

Invitation to 1903 Wedding of Grace Dean Capen and John Martin Bieler, at Eastport, Maine



Invitation to the wedding of Grace Dean Capen and John Martin Bieler, to be held Wednesday afternoon June 17, 1903, at the Central Congregational Church, Eastport, Maine.


Grace Dean Capen was born 8 May 1876 at Pembroke, Maine, the daughter of David Ross Capen and his wife Sarah A. (Dean) Capen, born in Eastport and Pembroke respectively.  Her paternal grandparents were John and Sarah Lydia (Leighton) Capen.  I haven't yet found the parents of Sarah A. Dean.


John Martin Bieler, a minister, was born about 1873 in Germany.  His parents' names appear on his marriage license but they are hard to decipher: perhaps Conrad Muhlbaurn and Christina Bauselder.  Perhaps Conrad's last name was Bieler but this was assumed and not entered on the license.


I found the couple with their daughter in the 1920 Census of Machias, Maine, where John's occupation was listed as Clergyman.   I found a reference where John Martin Bieler graduated from the Hartford Theological Seminary in 1901.
