Peter Mobes (Moebes) (Germany)


Generation No. 3


3. HENRIETTE SABINE ELISABETH3 MOBES (JOHANN GEORG2, PETER1 MOBES/MEWES) was born January 15, 1798 in Germany. She married AUGUST LAUE in Wusten-Rogasen.

Notes for AUGUST LAUE:
Extract from the letter of Paul Moebes born 1832:
(speaking of Henriette Sabine Elisabeth Mobes)
..... She shall has been the most beautiful girl of the whole district and was merried with the forestman August Laue in Wusten-Rogasen. He hisself has also fighted 1813/15 (war against Napoleon) and had got the "Iron-Cross".
The man must have been money; he has equipt himself and was shurely a "volontary hunter".
The reason of his leaving from Wusten-Rogasen (today called Wald-Rogasen) was a market in Zerbst how me was told. Alle the gentlemen of nobility sitting in front of the "Lion"; suddenly sitting on a horse Laue comes with spurs of silver. All are astonished and cry out: "Who is that?" The answer: "Such a forestman You can pay?!" After some time he got his demission and bought the mill in Theresen (seems to be near by Ransdorf 25 km south of Berlin). This mill he kept only for a few years and after that he went to the post to Berlin. The old August I met once in Schwedt/Oder by the Markischen-Forst-Club. When I came the first time (1852) as a Gardejager (soldier) to the parade in Berlin, I visited Laues. I can't discribe the pleasure this was. When the aunt got to see a Ringelsdorfer, she pressed me to her heart and kissed me.
.....Laue's have had 2 sons and 2 daughters. The sons have become forestmen and have served by the Gardejagern (hunter-guards) and were several times in Ringelsdorf wearing uniform. The one daughter was such a beauty that it was a sensation in Berlin. A doctor-Dr. Michaelis-falled in love to her and merried her. He worked up hisself to a Medizinalrat in Magdeburg.

4. CHRISTOPH FRIEDRICH WILHELM3 MOBES (JOHANN GEORG2, PETER1 MOBES/MEWES) was born November 14, 1799 in Ringelsdorf, Germany, and died November 20, 1871 in Kothen, Germany. He married SOPHIE AMALIE ZIEGLER March 27, 1826 in Ringelsdorf, Germany, daughter of PASTOR OF WARCHAU.

Notes for CHRISTOPH FRIEDRICH WILHELM MOBES:
Known as Friederich. Called "Fritz."
Friedrich was geometer and in the position of a royal-gouvernment-conducteur. At the end of his profession career he was from 1848 in Kothen a ducal "General=komissionsrath". By the separation (lying together the fields) of the villages around Ziesar, around Burg and around Koethen he made the surveys with two or three assistants. In Ziesar he owned a big house, in Burg he rented a big house. 1848 he moved to Kothen. There he lived in the opposite of the hospital of Dr. Lutze.
He was an enthusiastic hunter. Around Ziesar he rented the hunting-ground of six villages. By one hunt, Paul Moebes born 1832 carried the waggon. There at one day Friederich Lebrecht August Moebes born Oct. 20, 1801, George Ludwig August Moebes born Mar. 23, 1828 and "Pottmuller" Busse shooted 32 common snipes. Living in Burg he rented the community hunting-ground of Ihleburg. (Paul Moebes writes: "For a Moebes never could be without hunting-ground.")

Often Elise must be ill, for Otto Moebes, her brother, writes at May 26, 1901 to her:

Your sickly constitution has made me deeply sad.....It is amazing how you always have beat through the many different illnesses....I hope, now, it will become better with your health and you will enjoy a pleasant age.

John Gregory (Jack) Moebes born Apr. 10, 1911, living in Amerika reports that Elise has educated the son of her brother Ernst. He carries on to repart, that Otto invites her to come to Amerika to live there, but she was afraid to do so.

It seems to be that Elise got mad in the age for she died in a mad-house in Dessau.

Otto Moebes writes at May 28, 1902, to Richard Borgmann:

....You write to me sometimes aunt Elise is rather odd and often she was a hard burden for your mother.... Upon my word, Richard, I asked her hearty for comming to me in dozens of letters after dear father's death and it shouldn't cost for her absolutely no penny, we would carry her on our hands....
But no! She couldn't leave her darling Ernst!

In his letter to Richard Borgman Otto Moebes writes about Ernst, May 28, 1902:
".... Then I have invited brother Ernst too comming over here and offered him 16 0 'Morgan' (1 ha = 4 Morgen) ground for present. But no he would be to old for bringing ground under cultivation........ To this time he wasn't married, so he could have come over easily and if he wouldn't give up Coeleste he could made her following him."

Otto Moebes writes May 26, 1901, to his sister Eliese: "I felt deeply sorry about your sickly constitution and the death of our dear brother Ernst..... Poor Ernst! How few, few of luck and pleasure life has given to him and also to you. It is awful. And would I only have had you near by me, I could have helped you both so much."

Known as Ferdinand.
Paul Moebes (5/5/1832) writes: Now I'm comming to Ferdinand. Was inspektor (steward) in Doberitz, a big farm, to the time when I visited the school in Zerbst. He came once a week to Zerbst, where he brought alcohol. (Dobritz is situated 12 km northeast of Zerbst.) An inspector was an important person to this time. His wife was the daughter of pastor Nade of Straguth near Zerbst. I suppose she was my godmother, for twice I have got a big cracknel to my birthday. From Dobritz he went to Mecklenburg, there he had a farm and distillery. My brother (Friedrich Ludwig Eduard born 1842) did learn there the farming. To this time the tally was still important and by delivery corn to Rostock it took three days.
Ferdinand had one sone and one daughter, who died early both. (q.v.)
Uncle Ferdinand went from Gliening, this may be situated in Micklengurg (Glienike 5 km northwest of Wittstock ? ), to Coethen together with his sister in law, his wife was already dead for many years. The sister in law nursed Ferdinand until his death. From Coethen he was in Ringelsdorf. How glad was the old uncle to see his old home again, where he had picked hazel-nuts and shot the first hare. When he was died, I got a message from the sister in law. Then I went to Coethen. By my staying there she handed to me the watch of Waldemar, which I wear still today. What to the heritage happened I don't know, from our family we have had no title to.
