Blugowo, Kreis Flatow, West Prussia
Blugowo is a manorial farm at the southern edge of Kreis Flatow. It is of interest to me as Erdmann Jacobi worked there as a blacksmith. His daughter Justine Jacobi was the first wife ofAugust Remus. The descendents of both August Remus and both his wives migrated to America and settled in MN and the Chicago area (click here for details).
