August Hermann Edward Petersdorf
Birth: Dec. 25, 1863, Poland
Death: Sep. 17, 1900
Long Tom
Lane County
Oregon, USA

According to their marriage license, Hermann was from Neu Schonwalde, Pommern, Preussen(Prussia). Neu Schonwalde was a village in Eastern part of the Kingdom of Prussia which then became part of Germany until the end of World War II in 1945. Neu Schonwalde is now the Polish village of Zagozd and is located in the upper western corner of present-day Poland.

This area contained both Polish and German peoples. Hermann was German and spoke German, not Polish.

Hermann Petersdorf married Lina Fluckiger on February 16, 1894 in Dry Creek, Nebraska.

Grandpa Hermann became mentally unwell and killed Grandma Lina and then himself on September 17th, 1900. It's a horrible thing but it's true and part of our family history.

If only there was knowledge and treatment for mental illness then. Things might have turned out better.
