I know that Stephan was Lutheran from a notation on the baptismal records for his children, and that Carolina was Roman Catholic. I've searched backwards through Catholic marriage records back to about 1860, with no success. There is also a brief list of mixed marriages in the register, but it seems to end in 1845.
