Friedrich Stache, Johanna Karoline Bergander, and their children

Friedrich Stache and Johanna (Bergander) Stache were my great-great-great-grandparents. Their son Carl Stacke was my great-great-grandfather, and his great-granddaughter Lydia (Stacke) Revie was Mary's birth mother.

Friedrich Stache's first wife was Johanna Brüche. Johanna was born on February 9, 1827, and she had five children with Friedrich before her death on March 17, 1867, in Breslawitz, Prussia (modern-day Wrocławice, Gmina Milicz, Milicz County, Dolnośląskie Voivodeship, Poland). Friedrich married Johanna Bergander two months later, on May 12, 1867, at the Lutheran church in Gontkowitz, Prussia (modern-day Gądkowice, Gmina Milicz, Milicz County, Dolnośląskie Voivodeship, Poland). Friedrich and his second wife had two children. The national borders in Silesia, the region where they lived, changed over the years. A part of the Kingdom of Prussia until the formation of the German Empire in 1871, Silesia became a part of Poland after World War II.
