Liskau or Ziskau (Liskowo or Czyzkowo or Ziskowo)

Liskau is a small farming village near Ossowo (a home village for the Remus family) and the parish church in Battrow. The village head (schultz) was Christoph Weisjahn at the turn of the 19th century. His family married well including the marriage of his daugther Florentina to schultz Karl Remus of Ossowo (Karl also owned property in this village).

The Klawitter family was also an important family in this village. Andrea Zimmermann <andrea1303@freenet.de> is a descendent of this family. As far was I can tell, this Klawitter family is not related to the Klawitter families of Okiersk, Kreis Tuchel and Zbosse, Kreis Flatow that married into the Remus family.
