Cologne - Krieler Dömchen

Cologne - Krieler Dömchen
Cologne is the fourth-largest city in Germany - and one of the oldest. A Germanic tribe, the Ubii, had a settlement here, this was named by the Romans "Oppidum Ubiorum". In 50 AD, the Romans founded "Colonia Claudia Ara Agrippinensium", the city then became the provincial capital of "Germania Inferior".

Around the small Romanesque church "St. Stephanus", named "Krieler Dömchen" is an old graveyard. Here are two gravestones.

The right one is in memory of Adam Ploog (1763 - 1849) and his wife Margeretha Ploog nee Krosch (1774 - 1849).

Hilger Ploog (left stone) must have been their son. Hilger (1812 - 1860) is described ans a honourable , unwed retiree (with only 48 years of age!). He died at "Stuttgerhof", what was a part of the Kriel parish at that time.

The small brick building in the backdrop was the first school here.
