Information from Katherine Marwede :
William Marwede was born in Lehe, Germany
December 30, 1907 [died February 25, 1965].
His parents were Robert Marwede and Katherine Weber Marwede. They
eventually settled in Buxtehude, Germany. (Katherine Marwede (July 2005)
He died of a massive heart attack January 23, 1965. For about five years before
his death, he was partially paralyzed on the left side from a head injury he apparently
incurred during the war. The injury over the years caused scar tissue on the right
side of his brain that eventually and gradually caused his paralysis. He used a cane
which I still have. (Katherine Marwede, October 2006)
Email, July 30, 2005
My father and his entire family [parents and five children] came to the US when
he was sixteen . His parents and two younger children [a sister and brother] returned to Buxtehude, Germany after several months and remained there their entire life. Two older sisters remained in Hoboken, NJ and my father and a brother went on to Canada to become fur traders. They eventually came back to the US, where his brother settled down in Manhattan, NY and my father enlisted in the US Army. He remained in the military for thirty years. He retired in 1951 while we were stationed in Trieste, Italy and then settled down in Columbus, GA where he lived until he died.
He and my mother were married in 1932. She was a first generation Russian.
Her name was Nadejda Pavlukovich [shorten to Nettie Pawlik to become more
Americanized] and born in 1917. Her family fled to the US in 1916 to escape
the 1917 Russian Revolution as they were White Russians. They settled in
Chicago, IL. When my mother was 15 she met my father who was stationed at
O'Hare Army Field. They married and became a military family. Moving was
pretty much in the Eastern part of the US and Italy with a lot of trips to
Germany to see my father's family.
Email, August 9, 2005
my oma and opa never wanted to migrate to the US.
They were only visiting. It was the children [except two] who decided to
stay. As for my father and his brother being Canadian fur traders, it was
just a job for two teenagers who were learning English. My understanding is
they only stayed a year or so, learning English, before permanently moving
to the US.
