Welcome rhonda parker.

From memory Friedrich and Mary had a few children in South Australia.
I remember the name KRANZ very well.

Where were Frederick and Mary married?

They were married in Gawler SA on 6/3/1869. Frederick was my husband's great grandpa and we do have information about the Kranz side (the book is called "The Circle grows" written by Imelda Schulz) We were wondering about Mary's side of the family.

Could not find a marriage for Friedrich KRANZ and Mary KENNY but this must be their marriage going by the date you gave in the comment above.

Groom: William KRANZ.
Age: 23 years.
Status: Single.
Father: William KRANZ.

Bride: Mary KENNEDY.
Age: 21 years.
Status: Single.
Father: Henry KENNEDY.

Date married: 06 March 1869.
Place: Presbyterian Manse, Gawler, South Australia.

KENNEDY must be an index error. Looking at the births of their children Mary is recorded as KENNY and KENNEY, and William is recorded as Friedrich Wilhelm KRANZ.

I know you will have this information and I just wanted to point out to new members that what they see in the records may not be what they see.

Will let you know if I come across any details on Mary's side of the family.

Thank you so much for that. It certainly is interesting that what one sees may not be right.
