Heinrich Wilhelm Nühring

Nuhring is spelling on stone, Nuehring is the Americanized spelling.

Heinrich Wilhelm Nühring was born January 31, 1825 in Husum, Germany Lived, Schessinghausen and died April 19, 1898 in Wilhelemina Kregel Home, Guttenburg, IA. He married first Marie Dorothee Wilhelmine Homeyer October 17, 1852 in Germany, Husum Church. She was born 1825 in Germany and died December 23, 1869 in Guttenburg, IA, daughter of Johann Juergen Homeyer and Sophie Catharine Mueller. He married second Caroline (Lena) Kreplin December 1869 in Clayton county Courthouse has the record, last of 1869. She was born January 16, 1850 in Germany, and died 1932, daughter of Carl Kreplin and Maria Von Stade. Gravestone reads in German-translation:
Dear beloved father you have in our hearts departed, you left gladly to eternal peace to the kingdom of heaven. In sweet memory we look up to the high, that is where the Lord will present us with the happiest reunion.

Note: This was difficult to translate due to the document having so many missing parts. It is possible that some words could have a different meaning but I believe this to be somewhat close.
Record of marriage: Proclaimed and united in 1852. Heinrich Wilhelm Nuhring, legitimate son of the laborer and shepherd Heinrich Nuhring and Louise Hohmann (maiden name) of Gr-Varlingen, and Marie Dorothee Wilhelmine Homeyer, legitimate daughter of the pioneer settler Jurgen Homeyer and Sophie Muller (maiden name) of Schessinghausen, were united here after 2 publications of banns of marriage on the 17th of October.
