August Ferdinand Kunz – Catherine Elisabeth Albrecht

The family of August Kunz and Elisabeth Albrecht lived in Neuteicherwalde in Kreis Marienburg, Westpreussen (West Prussia). August was a Hofbesitzer (Farmer). It is believed that Hermann Recht and Auguste geboren Kunz inherited the family farm with their marriage three plus years following the death of August Ferdinand (facts are being sought to confirm this). We do know that as late as 1895 Elisabeth continued to live in Neuteicherwalde (even after Hermann and Auguste Recht had moved to Pietzkendorf). This fact is confirmed via the birth and baptismal record of Erich August Albrecht.

August Ferdinand Kunz (was born on 7 Feb 1844 in Neuteicherwalde the son of Andreas Kunz and Caroline Concordia Woelke) he married Catherine Elizabeth Albrecht (born on 10 Aug 1842 in Neuteicherwalde the daughter of Georg Albrecht and Marie Schroeder) on 3 January 1869 in Neuteicherwalde.

During their marriage August Ferdinand Kunz and Catherine Elisabeth geboren Albrecht had 5 children of whom perhaps only two survived into adulthood. This included:

  • Name: Auguste Alvine Caroline (wife of Hermann Recht).

  • Name: Friedrich Gustav

Catherine Elisabeth geboren Albrecht died in 1916 approximately two months after her daughter Auguste. It is probable that she had been in residence with the Recht’s in the last years prior to Auguste’s early death from Gout.
