Does someone have an obituary, or one of the marriage records, for Henriette (Bruett) Rueping Gallun Schlaebitz (Oct 1839 in Holstein, Germany - 1912 probably in Beaver Dam, WI)? I would like to verify the names of her parents and siblings.

About 1858, she married Wilhelm Rueping (1835 - 22 Oct 1867), probably in Fond du Lac Co., WI.

In May 1869, she married William Gallun (abt 1847 - 3- Aug 1879), probably in Beaver Dam, Dodge Co., WI.

About 1884, she married Walter C. Schlaebitz (Jul 1852 - 1918), probably in Beaver Dam, Dodge Co., WI.

I couldn't find these marriages online at Perhaps a volunteer could look at the marriage records for you. When Henriette married Wilhelm Gallum, she used her married name of her 1st husband.

When she married Carl W Schlaebitz, her last name is indexed as Leane. Could this be a misinterpretation of Gallum?

DIED - SCHLAEBITZ - At her home, 205 South Center street, this city, at 12:30 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 10, 1912, Mrs. Henrietta Schlaebitz, aged 72 years, 4 months and 16 days, of kidney and heart trouble.
After a protracted illness, which had extended over a period of ten years or more, the greater part of which she was a confirmed invalid and suffered much, Mrs. C. W. Schlaebitz passed quietly away at her home last Saturday morning. Miss Henrietta Bruett was born at Hademarshen, province of Holstein, Germany, Oct. 4, 1839, and was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jacobin Bruett. Her grandfather was the pastor of the village church and her father the organist and parish teacher. She was brought up in the Lutheran faith and received her education in the parish school taught by her father. When eighteen years of age she came to this country and joined her brother, who had lived at Fond du Lac for several years previous to her arrival. She was united in marriage the following year to William Rueping of Fond du Lac, and they came to Beaver Dam in 1869 [sic], when Mr. Rueping engaged in the tanning business. Mr. Rueping died in 1867 and his widow married Mr. Wm. Gallun of this city in 1869 with whom she lived until his death in 1879. She was united in marriage with Mr. Carl Walter Schlaebitz of this city on Dec. 18th, 1883, who survives to mourn her loss. The surviving children of the deceased are: William Rueping, Fred Rueping and Mrs. Max Lang, Fond du Lac; Robert Rueping, Chicago; Otto Gallun, Milwaukee, Mrs. Wm. Zeimet and Mrs. A. A. Zimmerman of this city. Mrs. Schlaebitz leaves three brothers, Gustave and Rudolph Bruett of Bloomfield, N. J., and Mr. John Bruett of Merrill, Wis. Her only sister, Mrs. Theodore Lattler, died last November. It was the repeated request of the deceased that her sons should be her pall bearers and her request was carried out at the funeral which was held at 2 p.m. Tuesday from her late home. Pastor T. S. Johnson spoke words of comfort and the interment was in the family lot at Oakwood cemetery.
Ihr meine lieben, klaget nicht
Beweint nicht meine Tod
Ich bin ja nicht zu fruh gestorben
Bin nur entnommen meiner not
Denn meine schmerzen waren gross
Nun bin ich allen jammer loss
Gott lob es ist vollbracht.
