Heinrich Bergander, Helene Lebede, and their children

Heinrich Bergander and Helene (Lebede) Bergander were my great-great-great-great-grandparents. Their daughter Johanna (Bergander) Stache was my great-great-great-grandmother, her son Carl Stacke was my great-great-grandfather, and his daughter Lydia (Stacke) Revie was my great-grandmother.

Heinrich Bergander, the son of Daniel Bergander, married Helene Lebede, daughter of Gottlieb Lebede, on January 8, 1837 in Krotoschin, Prussia modern-day Krotoszyn, Gmina Krotoszyn, Krotoszyn County, Wielkopolskie Voivodeship, Poland). They had three children together. Helene probably died in or before 1845, because on May 18 of that year Heinrich remarried to Johanna Wengler, also in Krotoschin. Johanna was born in 1819. Heinrich and Johanna also had three children. The area where they lived, Silesia, was a part of the Kingdom of Prussia until 1871, the German Empire from 1871 to the end of World War II, and has been a part of Poland since then.

The three children of Heinrich and Helene (Lebede) Bergander:

Although records from Gustav's later life place his birth in 1841, he may have actually been born after his parents' marriage in 1845. Gustav, a ropemaker, married Johanna Knuth on April 17, 1865, at Saint Barbara's Lutheran Church in Danzig. Gustav and Johanna had six children: Adolf, Martha, Melitta, Hedwig, Helene, and Arthur. During this marriage, Gustav was most commonly known by his middle name, Gottlieb. Johanna died on August 14, 1876, in Danzig. Gustav married again on October 22, 1876, at Saint Mary's Lutheran Church in Danzig, to Justine Wilhelmine Unruh, who went by her middle name. Gustav and Wilhelmine had three children: Auguste, Rudolf, and Gustav. Gustav died in 1882 and was buried at Saint Barbara's Cemetery along with three of his children. His wife Wilhelmine and several of Gustav's children moved to Spandau, a district of Berlin, Germany. Wilhelmine died there on June 18, 1909.
