Those Places Thursday: Katholische Pfarrkirche St. Johann Baptist, Kendenich, Germany

Katholische Pfarrkirche St. Johann Baptist (St. Johann Baptist Catholic Church) is located in Kendenich, Hürth, Rhein-Erft, Nordrhein-Westfalen (North Rhine-Westphalia), Germany. It is the oldest church in Hürth. A single-nave Romanesque church was built in the 13th century. The west tower dates back to 1682. In 1859, construction began on a neo-Romanesque church building. Architect Kart Band constructed a new building in 1954-1956.

My 2nd-great-grandmother Christina Nagel was born in Kendenich on 27 February 1851. At least three generations of Christina's ancestors were also born in Kendenich: her mother Anna Maria Aussem (born 18 October 1815), her maternal grandmother Theresia Erp (born about 1781), and her great-grandmother Agnes Schunk (born about 1744).
