I am trying to establish the identity of Magdalena, wife of Johann Andreas Martini of Schadeck Castle. She married him on 5 Aug 1651 there, bore three sons, and was buried at the same on 31 Mar 1658.
Her eldest son Georg Wilhelm Martini was christened there 9 Jan 1653, with his godmother being Juliana Walpurgis, Fraulein zu Leiningen-Westerburg.
Her second son Simon Philipp Martini was christened there 5 Nov 1654; four of his godparents being: (1) Sophia Elisabetha (1626-1688), Graefin zu Leiningen-Westerburg, (2) Simon Philipp (1646-1670), heir-apparent of Grafschaft Westerburg, (3) Johannes Valentin Holweg, praeceptor aulicus, and (4) Anna Christina, wife of Samuel Schlosser, pastor of Schadeck Castle. Simon Philipp Martini married Elisabetha Catharina Ackermann (1657-1728) on 24 Jan. 1682 there, and was buried at the same on 11 Feb. 1729.
My question is:
Given the godparents of her children was she the Magdalena who was born on 21 Sep 1613 at Schaumburg in Grafschaft Schaumburg to Christoph (1575-1635), Graf zu Leiningen-Westerburg, by his wife Philippina Catharina Walpurgis (d.1647) zu Wied und Runkel? This placement would make her the sister of Juliana Walpurgis mentioned above, the sister-in-law to Sophia Elisabetha mentioned above, and the aunt of Simon Philipp (1646-1670).
My line of descent from Simon Philipp Martini is through his daughter Anna Juliana [fourth of nine children] who was christened at Schadeck Castle on 21 May 1689. She married her first husband Johann Adam Schreiber there on 25 Nov 1707, and her second Johann Ludwig Schmidt on 2 Sep 1710 also at Schadeck. She died there on 9 Jun 1740.
Any assistance is appreciated.
