About Carl Ronneberg

Cart Ronneberg was unmarried. He was the favourite uncle of Sophie Ronneberg (*1882).

The register of deaths of Münster, no. 151/1898, on Nov.2, 1898 says: "According to notification of the administration of St. Mauritz, suburb of Münster, of November 2, 1898 it is documented that the Amtmann a.D. Karl Ronneberg, 54 years of age, of catholic religion, residing in Lamberti, Geist 17, born in Münster, unmarried, son of the deceased Kanzleirath Wilhelm Ronneberg and his spouse Gertrud b. Holter, residing in Lamberti, was found dead on october 31, 1898 at four o' clock in his room of house Geist no. 17." By courtesy of Gerd Enning, Münster, for supplying this entry on Feb. 29, 2016, as obtained from an announcement of St. Mauritz of Nov. 2, 1898. The date of Carl's birth is documented in an announcement of the Münstersche Intelligenzblätter. Note: The given confession ("catholic") is somewhat surprising, since Carl was baptized Lutheran.

Story of the Ronneberg tradition:

Carl liked alcohol. Thus, he confessed this sin to his father confessor in his church. Unfortunately, his father confessor was hard of hearing and asked Carl to speak louder. Since Carl did not entirely fulfill this request as his father confessor expected, the latter again urged him to speak still louder. This continued again and again until all visitors in the church could hear Carl's confession.
