Konitz was and still is the major city in this region of Poland. Today and in past years, it contained lots of businesses and churches centering on aMarket Plaza. The Remus family were mostly schultz, millers, and farmers but occasionally family members like Christian Remus (and his wife Elisabeth Marie Schmidt) lived in towns like Konitz.
