Presuming it's them, but left towards end of 85 :-\

Hi

Quote
Familysearch has her as Salome Merklin, born 12th November, 1850, daughter of George Mercklin and Madelilaine Ostheimer, in Barr, Bas-Rhin, Alsace, France.

So her birth record should be found in this online archives:
http://archives.bas-rhin.fr/rechercher/documents-numerises/

By the way Strasbourg/Strassburg has its own online archives:

His father - Konrad Denhard (Missionary)
Mother Anna Margrethe Ratz
Birth:   1848 Gambach Main-Spessart Bayern Germany

Were they catholics or lutherans? The catholic parish records are at the archives in Würzburg.

Religion-wise, Salome/Florence seems to list her religion as Church of England on her workhouse admissions. I don't know if she or her first husband Tobias would've been raised Catholic or Protestant, though.

Looks like they had another daughter who perhaps died young:

   DENHART, SALOME       MARKLING 
GRO Reference: 1874  S Quarter in MILE END OLD TOWN  Volume 01C  Page 489
 
As for the surviving daughter Florence Denhart, she's working as a cook in a household in Islington in 1901: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X9ZT-9KL

In 1911 she's working as a manager at a private hotel: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XWLY-3H1
