Grzybau (Grzybowo)

Grzybowo (Grzybau) is a village near Lipusz (Lippusch) and Berent in Kreis Berent; this area is central to the Kasubian region of Poland. It is of interest to me since Marianna Remus married Matthias Litterski and subsequently lived in this village. It is likely that she was born to the Remus family of Gustomie. Their genealogy is shown below.

As shown by the pictures below, the village has a lovely setting. So now it depends on tourism more than farming:

 

Descendants of Matthias Litterski

1. MATTHIAS1 LITTERSKI was born Bef. 1794. He married MARIANNA REMUS Bef. 1816. She was born 1794 in (see note), and died January 23, 1862 in Grzybau, Lippusch Parish, Kreis Berent, West Prussia.

Notes for MARIANNA REMUS:

Marianne Remus was born in 1794. In the records of 1780. I presume she was born somewhere near Gryzbau where she lived with her husband Mathias Litterski. And there is an Adam Remus (Remaß) in Sommin (Sominy), Kr Butow not far from Gryzbau. No proof but perhaps a lead. By the way, Adam Remus was not in Sommin (Sominy) in 1747. They would have gone to church in Sommin (Sominy) if Lutheran or Bernsdorf if Catholic. The (Sominy) Lutheran Church is in the old wooden style and dates back to 1755.

 

Hufenklassifikation in Hinterpommern von 1717/19 is available at http://www.pommerscher-greif.de/hufen/

There are no Remus families listed so Adam Remas and any other Remus must have arrived after that date. Note that not all counties (Kreis) are covered.
