Charlotta Catherina Bullitschek (B6)


Charlotta Catherina Bullitschek (B6) was born 17 Jan 1775 at the Bullitschek farm near Germantown, Stokes Co., NC.  The Bethania Church Book records, "Charlotta Catharina, Joseph Fredinand and Maria Charlotta Bulitschek's little daughter born the 17th of January, baptized the 22nd of the same month in an open meeting in Bethania by Brother John Jacob Ernst.  Sponsors were Gottfried and Anna Maria Grabs and Helena Schmid."  Charlotta had a sudden illness at the age of seventeen and died 05 Jun 1792 in __________ Co., NC.  The Bethania Diary of a Moravian church official stated, "I was called to Bulitschek, who formerly belonged to us, and whose daughter had died.  They asked that she be buried in our God's acre, but the request was refused by the Committee."  Only members of the congregation could be buried in the Moravian Cemetery with few exceptions.  The Salem Diary reported that "on 09 June 1792, Br. Kramsch went ten miles from Salem to hold the funeral of Charlotte Boletzcheck, whose parents formerly belonged to the Unity (Moravian Church)."  A Forsyth Co., NC. record states that interment was in the Old Shiloh Lutheran Cemetery near Lewisville, Stokes Co., NC.  No gravestone was found in this old cemetery in 1986.  This church was also known as Muddy Creek.  Another report says that she was buried in Salem Lutheran Cemetery in Winston-Salem.  There is a Salem Cemetery adjacent to God's Acre Cemetery in Winston-Salem that is non-denominational, but the reference above suggests that she was not buried in Salem.
