Margaretha (Schwenk) Sperr, died 1833, Odessa City, Bessarabia

Margaretha Sperr (nee Schwenk) died at Odessa City, Russian Empire on 6 Mar 1833 at age 44 years, 7 months, 22 days.  She died of "Nervenfieber" (nervous fever, which is typhoid). 
The death record notes that her husband, Philipp Sperr, was a Wuerttemberger emigrant.  They may have been in Odessa to seek medical care.  A note on the right side states that a death certificate was issued on 13 Mar 1833.  The other entries on the same page note "allhier" for people who lived in Odessa; this is not the case for the Sperrs, so they must have lived elsewhere (supposedly Friedensthal, Bessarabia).

She was born to Johannes Schwenk and Johanna Maria Ade in Rielingshausen, Wuerttemberg and baptized on 14 Jul 1788. 

She had married Philipp Sperr on 22 Nov 1815 at Rielingshausen.  After her death, Philipp Sperr, remained in Friedensthal, Bessarabia and remarried.
