Peterswald Pfarrey Chronicle: Summary 1825 - 1932

Copied in the archive in Aussig in March 2007:  until 1900 and in March 2008:  until 1932

What happened then ……..  The most important events recorded in the chronicle in Peterswald , the place where my ancestors lived until the expulsion in Sept. 1946.

          Summary of Renate von Babka, b. ax

Foreword It took me 52 years to finally learn about the past and life of my ancestors. It started with “surfing” the internet and typing “Peterswald” on Google. What came next was theWebsite about PeterswaldBernd Zechel and it has taken me immediately caught, learn about my parents, grandparents and great-grandparents, especially since I found a lot of documents in the estate of my parents that I could in the meantime evaluate nearly all , I owe this to Dr. Rudolf Püschel, sir Bernd Zechel, Mrs. Edith Fischer, Mrs. Liane Jung and many other people whom I was allowed to meet in the meantime. I must also especially thank the archive in Aussig, with Ms Iva Kolarova; a very nice and extremely helpful archivist.

In collaboration with Ms Martina Bisco, b. Heller, whose ancestors came from Tyssa, Dr. Ing. Rudi Püschel and Barbara and Herbert Klepsch, I have been able to translate the mentioned chronicle of the Pfarrey Peterswald from the old German writing into a today “readable”.   This proved to be very difficult on many occasions as some pastors were quite beautiful “smears” but very human often, as can be seen in the course of these records.  I will for the most part play the original recordings, though it should be noted that some words were written earlier than in the present; there are no spelling errors. The syntax is also very different from today’s. I also adopted the idiom as it was in the chronicle, so as not to change the original character.

Now I wish you a lot of fun in the journey into the past

Renate from Babka, b. Beil ( House No. 193, formerly Bail. – ” eim Beilkorl ” ) 

The recordings begin in 1825 In this year 1825 on the 26th of November the pastor Joseph Franzel, native of Johnsdorf as pastor of the past 6 took over the pastoral service. As will be reported later, this pastor suddenly dies at the burial of a corpse on August 28, 1856.

The inhabitants of Peterswald belonged in earlier times to the Protestant religion, but gradually converted ( whether voluntarily or not, put there ) to Catholicism, as on July 14, 1827, Mrs. Christina Weigand, wife of Prokop Weigand, button manufacturer from the house No. 339. In the presence of several people, she has discarded the Catholic Creed in her sickbed, and then, with the emotion of many, the St. Sacrament of the dying received. She died a few days later.  

In 1827 , according to an official episcopal order, on March 19, 1827, all pastors were told to teach Christian doctrine in the parish church on Sunday afternoon. About the young people of both sexes from the twelfth to the eighteenth century who were obliged to attend the Christian teachings, a proper list of names or catalogs had to be included in order to note the presence or absence of each Sunday every Sunday in order to obtain the conviction, as well as diligently the Christian teachings have been visited.

August 6, 1827 Protocol:                  The Peterswalder church was in earlier years a branch church belonging to the parish in Schoenwald, which was changed in 1785 to the religious fund. The Schoenwalder pastor has the so-called Pfarrgütel in Peterswald, so to 66 Metzen properties, as well as the questionable in a carriage Schupfen changed rectory, today still in possession and enjoyment. Plots of land and buildings therefore belong to the Schönwalder parish, as is the tax regulation form, which is awarded to the well-to-do kk Kreisamte by means of the official report of 6t. August 1827 was presented, evidences.  The Commission has decided to decide whether the reason on which the new wagon-slip was built, a parish or church land or to whom else at the time of the tax regulation had been attributed, the tax regulation sheet of Pfarrgütel in Peterswald NC 2 The building No. 2, the old pharmacy, was purchased by my parents Franz and Hedwig Beil in 1942 by the widow Schneider   .

Following in the entries of Wenzel Kara are very many quotes from the Bible and purely ecclesiastical, for someone who is not a pastor, a lot of incomprehensible and not so interesting. Therefore, these entries were largely ignored by me or adopted only in very short terms.

The fact that the school at Peterswald mentioned in the preceding report must have existed before the year 1607 is evident from the fact that in that year the congregation bought a good and dedicated it to the school for the better entertainment of the respective teacher. The related deed of the municipality is as follows:

My dear and unforgettable mother, who is at Kleinhau on the 28th. September 846 ( 1846), at 6:30 in the morning, gently fell asleep in the Lord. I suffered a not less severe loss also by the death of my good host Antonia Spindler which on the 9th. January 11 , 1873, at 11 o’clock in the morning, retired from this temporal life, after spending 23 years managing my household with rare fidelity, great skill, and particular diligence.    Jos. Hampel

The Austro-Prussian War of 1866 demanded huge casualties, brought with it even greater losses of property and possessions, and ended in peace, Austria’s province, its position in Germany, its claims to the Duchies of the Elbe, and a significant war contribution cost.

As in the night of the 15t. In June 866 ( 1866) the Prussian troops invaded Saxony, the Saxon federal troops withdrew to Bohemia, where they were presented to the Austrian army. As a result, Sunday came the 17th. In June, Minister Beust arrived in Peterswald, got off at the post office, and went to the office of the postmaster, where he deposed for an hour and then continued on his journey.

Monday the 18t. On the 12th of June, King John himself appeared at the head of a troop division, accompanied by the Crown Prince and his general staff, rested for an hour and returned to the march.

After the departure of the Saxons, Prussian patrols soon showed up at various points on the Bohemian frontier to reconnoitre (investigate) whether the frontier was occupied by Austrian troops, and when they were found occupied Thursday, on July 12, a Prussian troops moved Division of 5000 men in Peterswald stayed one night and moved to the 13th. back from here. I alone had to quarter and feed six officers and to feed me and the other nine men. If this Prussian vermin had stayed only a few days here, then I would   been completely consumed.  For Austria, the time of the unleashed hell followed this unfortunate war. By pushing the church out of the house as an abused and worn-out maid, one has already sent the dear state as “Moor, who did his duty” to her. Today God no longer governs in Austria, the emperor, the old law, the old custom, but the devil and his grandmother, the revolution with its whole clan of lies, deceit, inbreeding and all abominations.

God grant that in this flood of ruin Austria will not be buried.

After his death, the Leitmeritz bishopric was completed by 1 ¾ years. Bisthumsverweser became the most reverend Mr. Domcapitular Dr. Alois Hille from Schönau near Hainspach, a nephew of the + Mr. Bishop Hille Augustinus Bartholomäus, who held the position from 7th Oct. 1832 to 26th April 1865 as the 11th Bishop of Leitmetz, and after having done well and countless good works in Leitmeritz on the last day was different. 

Above-mentioned Mr. Domcapitular Alois Hille suddenly died in Prague on June 8, 1879.

1878 . On the 23rd of February 1878, 71 years old in Tyssa, 71 years old, the past Peterwalder Pastor Josef Hille died, after having stood for almost 21 years as pastor of local pastoral care. From October 1877 he retired to Tyssa and spent his last days there.

On February 7, 1878 Pope Pius IX died. in the 86th year of life. At 19. and on February 20 it was the Conclave, in which, after 36 hours from the beginning, the same Cardinal Joachim Perri, b. March 2, 1810, was elected pope, the name of Leo XIII. assumed.

On June 14, 1878, Jacob Knechtel, formerly a pastor in Ober-Ebersdorf near Bensen and born on July 25, 1830 in Hasel near Böhmisch Kamitz, was made pastor of Peterswald and confirmed on July 4 of the same year in Leitmeritz. On the afternoon of July 10, at 2 o’clock in the afternoon, I arrived in Peterswald, was greeted very warmly by the laudable community representative, the men’s teacher, all the existing associations, the school youth and a very large number of adults, to the church, where St Blessing with the hochw. Local singing club still several songs from the parish canceled.  On Saturday, July 13th, the high-ranking Mr. District Vicar Hampel from Kulm held the Canonical visitation. On July 14, 1878, I was solemnly installed by the aforementioned District Vicar in the presence of several sons of the Lord.

Since the old rectory was very dirty and damaged, I found myself urged to request a building inspection commission. The same appeared soon, on Aug. 6, 1878, requesting several preparations as immediately and urgently necessary. Unfortunately, they were soon postponed for 1 year.

There was much damage to the washing of the church and to the utensils necessary for worship. I therefore looked for benefactors, and found them partly too. So the button manufacturer Carl Kühnel, house no. 209, had both barrels of silver, which until now looked black and dirty, beautifully silvered. Then the church gave:    Mrs. Theresia Wolf, widow, No. 160, two massive beautiful tabernacles and candelabrums.

1879 . This year, on the whole, was not considered a lucky one, but due to its continuous downpours, floods, torrents, etc., it was a year that was very scary all over Europe. Also our area had to suffer hard. In February, the mine accident took place at Osseg-Dutt, where several coal shafts were completely submerged and some 20 people lost their lives.    With mine disaster was in connection that on 12/13. The Teplitz thermal springs had largely disappeared in February and were recovered after a great fear of the inhabitants and enormous efforts several days later.

In the middle of March 1879 the rinderpest broke out in Peterswald. The same was the result of a commissional finding, whereby the state district doctor himself had appeared in Prague, dated March 15, 1879, with the economic owners Wenzel Körtel, No. 322, and the widow Veronica Körtel, No. 326. In both farms the entire stock of cattle was  culled.

In 1879, after a long period of our diocese, the joyful news of the appointment of the new Lord Bishop came with the words: God has answered our requests. A long Sedisvacanz is finished. Sr. Kk Your Majesty was very generous. Resolution of April 25 th for the completed Bisthum Leitmeritz to present the most venerable Mr. Anton Ludwig Frind, inaugurated by senior attorney of the most revered and faithful metropolitan Kaplan of Prague, Knight of the quay. Austrian. Franz-Johsefs-Ordens etc.etc. Born in Hainspach on 9 Oct. 1823 ordained priest in Leitmeritz on 25 July 1847.  Mr. Auxiliary Bishop Leo XIII. have the most Prefection assumed in the Consistorium on May 15, the chosen preconized and him apostol. Authority entrusted the episcopal mission of this diocese.

The Einpfarrung and enrollment of the Antonsthaler settlement took place in 1875 to Tyssa:    The high kk Lieutenancy has by decree of 26 Nov. 1875 in agreement with the Leitmeritzer bischöfl. Consistorium the elimination of the new settlement Antonsthal at Peterswald from the parish of Peterswald, where the territory on which this one settlement rose, belongs, and the allocation, or  parceling of the new settlement of Peterswald about 1 hour, where Tyssa, however, only 25 minutes away was, according to § 20 of the law of 7 May 1874 approved. The Stolagebühren have from now on the Antonsthaler inmates to the parish Tyssa to make. 

Training: The children of the new settlement Antonsthal visited so far the school in Tyssa, since their parents were hometown to Tyssa. By the 1878 school year, however, these children were no longer accepted into the Tyssa school and, since the distance from Peterswald was too far, until the discharge of the whole affair, they did not attend school.  On January 24, 1879, therefore, a mixed commission of the Tetschner and Aussiger district school council took place, and the Ortschaftsrath of Peterswald reported on June 4, 1879 for better orientation, a report on the inability of the children to attend the Peterswald School at a distance of 3185 Meters to Schönstein and from there to Antonsthal 320 meters, altogether 3505 meters distance.

Finally, the decision was made: The high kk Landesschulrath found according to high decree of September 17, 1879, in view of the much smaller distance of the settlement Antonsthal from the school in Tyssa than that in Peterswald, assign this settlement to the school community Tyssa and that as required for school education in Antonsthal during the worst season by a ettcurrendo teacher from Peterswald care.

The winter of 1879 – 1880 was a very severe and sustained, so that the fuel purchased by the people often insufficient. On October 15, 1879, snow began to fall and the snow remained uninterrupted until mid-March 1880. Hunger emergency had also broken out in several areas of Europe, and despite great willingness to help, claimed several lives as victims.

Kr. Cost. The crosses were placed in the school classes immediately.

On the 17th of July, 1880, a terrible storm arrived which, worst in Nollendorf, shattered all crops there and dwelt in Königswald, but also in Peterswald, although to a lesser extent, caused damage. One estimated the damage in Nollendorf with 40000 Eq.

On August 16, 1880, between Peterswald and Schoenwald, in the direction of Streckenwald, a terrible cloudburst set in on the 9th morning. As a result of this and the previous several days of continuous heavy downpours, the runs of Peterswald and Schoenwald swelled to raging mountain streams whose water masses tore roads and meadows, bridges and bridges and severely damaged houses.   In the living quarters and stables penetrated, as the floorboards, scarf and in the cellars themselves brought beer and other barrels for swimming and a lot of wood, poultry cattle and other belongings by force continued. The oldest people did not remember a similar calamity. It was bad in Schoenwald, but worse still lived the flood in Peterswald, so the district and highway in many places badly damaged, bank fortifications were washed away and several houses ( here in the height No. 351 and 343 together with several in the Unterdorfe   ) were in great danger of being carried away by the terrible floods. Although the threatened residents had left their homes in time and in both communities were numerous helper hands with rescuing the cattle and salvaging the belongings busy, nonetheless grew the community members especially of Peterswald a great damage. Several tracts of land bordering on the Lochwasser, especially towards the Saxon border, among them also the church meadow “Blosch”, are not only very muddy, but also covered with rock scree and even animal cadavers.   The inhabitants of the whole ridge, not only as a result of the downpour, but also in consequence of the already preceding, probably 10 days continuously running rains great concern and fear for the future, because the crops were often difficult, even threatened to rot , It was fortunate that the calamity happened on the 16th of August during the day, at least no human life fell victim to the torrential torrents. Twenty years ago, on 17 August 1860, everything in the fields had been destroyed in Schoenwald and Peterswald by a terrible hailstorm.

On 3 Sept. 1880, the commissioning of the structural damage on the roof above the Sacristy and the tower, as well as inside the church, took place here.

For the church festival Nicolai 1880 brought Agnes Wolf, No. 160 and Caroline Schönbach, No. 356, the church beautiful white dining bags. For Christmas celebrations of the same year, Mr. Ferdinand Kühnel, Economic-Ausgedinger, No. 75, gave the church the gift of the beautiful chandelier in the middle in front of the Communion Bank. He had gradually bought the individual pieces and with great effort put together the chandelier within the year. Together with his son, Mr. Carl Kühnel, No. 75, he then raised and fastened the chandelier where it is now.

In late autumn, Jacob Hilt, Ausgedinger No. 213, had erected a large funerary monument on the grave of his wife Theresie Hilt, who died on June 8, and had it surrounded by a stone enclosure, without informing the local pastor.  At the latter’s request that Jacob Hilt either put away the enclosure or buy the burial ground, he appeared at the rectory, asked for leniency because he had acted out of ignorance, and he paid an amount of 6 Eq. For the acquisition of necessary ecclesiastical things, and since the harsh winter time, a clearing away was immediately impossible, so he renounced any further claim of the said place, so that the same can be occupied at any need again at will.

The sad year of 1880, which brought so much labor to humanity, came to an end, with dire signs of the future of our humanity, and every reasonable one passed in alarm the threshold of the new year.

1881 The first 3 months of this year were very severe with regard to the cold, so that the wood and coal stocks were very strong. The course of business was very bad, as a result of which many workers became evil, who sorrowfully faced the future.         Mr. Carl Kühnel, manufacturer no. 209, had silvered the inconspicuous lamp hanging before it without compensation in the month of March, and the proprietor Emilie Janke, No. 302, presented a new beautiful wreath to the Sacred Image of Jesus.

On July 16, at 3:30 pm in the afternoon of 1881, a heavy thunderstorm came over the Spitzberg; the lightning struck Franz Streit’s house, Schulmeister Nr. 375, and in a short time the same was burnt down.

Mission Cross Renovation 1881 The old mission cross set in 1858 was almost completely decayed and threatened to collapse.  At the request of the pastor and the use of Mr. Vikärs Hampel, the Gemeinde Peterswald delegation decided to set a new missionary cross.  By decree of the most venerable bischöfl. Consistorium, dedto Sept. 15, 1881, Nro. 5514, sr. Bishop Grain, Most Reverend Mr Bishop Dr. Anton Ludwig Frind the consent of the holding of the mission renovation in Peterswald on 30 and 31 October 1 and 2 Nov. 1881 by the high-level Mr. P.

All sermons held were numerous visited and what impression they made testifies to the continuous influx to them and the general praise. The Mission Cross itself was consecrated on All Saints’ Day in 1881 by HP Lechner on the occasion of the afternoon sermon. 

On 29th of Oct. the following party papers were sent to the rectory:    “The lord of life and death has passed the painful test of the leading diocese, the Most Reverend Dr.. Anton Ludwig Fried, Bischoff, knight of the kk Franz Josefs-Ordens, member of several learned societies, Mr. on Drum and Tebautitz etc.etc. after a brief practice of apostolic office, to call for eternal rest. He died after receiving de hl. Sacraments repeatedly strengthened and blessed by the blessing of St. Paters consoled, to acute pulmonary tuberculosis on Oct. 28 at 7:30 am, in the 59th year of life. The corpse of the beleaguered man will be in the hall of the bischöfl on Monday, the 30th of October, after 11 o’clock. Residence opened and Monday, the 31.

On March 21, 1881 died in Peterswald No. 352, the manager in the Linkenbach factory, Mr. Friedrich Wilhelm Heinrich Linkenbach, a native of Neuwied in Prussia. At the request of the widow, she was given the burial ground for 30 years with the permission of the Most Revered Bishop. Consistory to Leitmeritz:

10.Okt. 1881 Rekag.Gem.Vi.Jos. Seifert, Chancellor

On October 17, 1881, in the afternoon between half past four and six o’clock, the factory of Mr. Carl Kühnel, No. 209, was burned down in starving cloth, parish of Peterswald No. 91.

During the summer of 1881 the church was turned into Peterswald, the sacristy covered with new shingles, the presbytery partly covered with new stone slabs, and the church tower largely covered. The congregation chief Eduard Krauspenhaar had preceded the construction and the production was recognized as quite satisfactory in the Commisionellen takeover, which took place on Oct. 11, 1881.

In the fall of 1881, the necessary repairs were made to the organ, which had become completely defective, a completely new keyboard was used and the organ was re-tuned. Mr. Orgelbauer Heinrich Schäffner from Böhm. Leippa has done the work to the fullest satisfaction.

In the spring of 1881, as a result of the decision of the Municipal Office, the lower, very defective half of the old post office was demolished, and during the summer and autumn a beautiful new building, quite conformed to the old upper post house, was completed. Originally, the construction costs were estimated at 6,000 guilders. It should be noted for the respective pastor of Peterswald, that in the direction against the church stairs to about 1 yard has been built on church grounds.  Since only the way to the church was a little narrower and although only a piece in the width of the post office, so did the pastor on oral requests of the parish council no objection to hatred of the community to escape, since in any case already meets the mail shed on church grounds.

On February 23, 1882 , I was appointed pastor of Modlan, then confirmed as such on March 8.

I, Johann Pleschke, born. 9.Sept. 1834, son of Josef Pleschke, Niederkarbitz 82 and the Monika, born. Gange from Daubitz, was on May 18, 1881 with a high councilor’s decree for pastor preempted, on 15. -18. Confirmed in May 1882. On the day of the confirmation I left Leitmeritz to my fellow traveler Ignaz Körtel, pastor in Bohemian-Kahn, from where I arrived via Tyssa in the company of my friend at an unusually cold time in Peterwald. My reception was a friendly and cordial, if not more pompous, than that of my predecessor.   For reasons not to be discussed, the laudable associations were not present. In the name of Eduard Krauspenhaar, who was absent in urgent matters, I was greeted by the head of the municipal council in the presence of the entire teaching staff and the school youth, as well as many male and female residents of the community under the music of the band, the high Rath, August Wolf, Kaufmann , with a short and friendly speech, which was returned by me in the same way.   On the threshold of the church in the name of her classmate Antonia Kliem, a very good student, addressed me with the request that I, coming from the beautiful and devout Netherlands, the local youth of the mountains, a leader to the heavenly Oberland may.

Something about my past: Consecrated as a priest in 1860 on the 31st of July by the Blessed Most Venerable Lord Bishop Augustinus Bartholomew, I had to start my station as chaplain in Schönau near Schluckenau, in the birthplace of the Most Holy Bishop Lille, on the 7th of September.  At Dehant Anton Linke, now in Gutt, I found an equally clever and intelligent, simple and simple pastor, in whom I learned a lot, to which I owe much. I had the good fortune at his side to meet a fellow-chaplain, David Leutpfal, who was very well-oriented in all matters of science, namely ecclesiastical art, and who, after the death of Dehant Linke in 1865, was my pastor until I left.   I count the almost 22 years, with the settlement of this administration, namely from 18.4. until May 1875 in Niedereinsiedel, from May to the end of September 1875 in Krombach, from May to the end of Sept. 1877 in Zeidlow, the happiest not only of my priestly years, but of my entire life so far.

The night of the 27th to the 28th of June 1882 was a night of terror. In the high-lying scouring of the economist Ignaz Fischer, no. 204 (Schofferbauer), an unidentified cause of fire broke out, which spread with rapid speed also to the nearby elongated courtyard house and also set fire to two houses down the street. At the beginning, the church was in danger; the wind swiftly turned in the opposite direction, and owing to this circumstance, it is mainly due to the fact that the destructive element did not propagate to other objects.   The danger was all the greater, as had not come at the same time help in the night. The fire brigades of Tyssa and Peterswald proved themselves very well.

Although repairs were carried out in large amounts under the previous master, the present Sellsorger asked for a commission of the löbl. Kk district captain Aussig to, which was rejected. The oven in the parsonage was very damaged and inadequate, which is why the predecessor of the winter months used an iron stove, which he had sold to the mayor when he left the church.

I therefore had the old, defective tiled stove removed and set up a new provisional at my own expense, me on almost 100 gulden Österr. Currency came to stand.

The old tiled stove in the living room was half decayed and can not be heated, but can be made usable again by implementing perhaps. The oven in the kitchen room will have to be removed in a short time and replaced with a new one. 1883   The local parish had so far no well; the drinking, cooking and washing water had to be brought from the so-called Postbrunnen, which costs much time and effort and is very difficult in winter.  That’s why I diged for water in the vegetable garden and found it at a depth of 7 meters. I set up a small pump, for the time being everything was at my expense. The whole construction of the pump comes well over 60 gulden Österr. Currency. Mr. C. Kühnel, no. 309, manufacturer of metal goods, has shown me a lot of favors in the construction.  The water still carries earthy constituents, which, however, according to the opinion of experts, may be lost in some time, when the well is often evacuated and the ground is worn out after a few times. Since the well has been dug in very dry season, the water should be sufficient forever.

The late summer u. Autumn dJ1882 was very rainy and therefore the harvesting work very difficult, the grains grew many times, the potatoes, a staple food of local population were not sufficient, were watery and rotten spoiled by the decay. There was a very rich fruit harvest.

At the end of 1883, the baker’s wife Fritsche, Veronika, No. 210, and the postulancy widow Püschel came to see me. I asked for a new one for the completely vanished oath of St. Fabian and Sebastian, for which purpose they voluntarily collected contributions from house to house. The collection yielded the amount of 60 guilders, 32 cruisers.

In Correspondezblatt the company “Lukas-Kunstanstalt” was recommended for purchases in the church. I turned with the question whether it would be possible for her to furnish for this sum a beautiful artistically executed picture of the two saints in the indicated size, together with gilded baroque framing. I asked for the affirmative answer, and the picture arrived here on the eve of the pledge and could be hung in place of the old one in the church.

The execution met the expectations   n i t. The named company has subsequently turned out to be a JEWISH business working in Catholic cult objects. I subsequently had to pay more than 4 guilders out of my own resources.  

The weather conditions were slightly cheaper this year than in the previous year. The summer was full of thunderstorms that caused a lot of hail damage here as well.

In order to avoid the community income, which in any case is hardly sufficient for other urgent community needs, the local councilor Mr. Augustin Wolf made the proposal to raise the above renovation expenses by voluntary donations from benefactors from the inner circle and donated for this purpose:

The year 1886 was a year of construction. At great cost, the gable roof of the rectory was repainted and several other repairs worried. The well has been completed in the buildings with been added. Although it had cost over 60 guilders, I only received 50 guilders. Likewise, for the stove in my living room 45 florins were set, but I received no compensation, allegedly, because in the guest room a new stove had to be set up. The old stove in this room should be converted.  The oven in the dining room was close to the ruins and was replaced by a new one. From the remnants of the worn stove, I had a kitchen stove built, the former kitchen stove was a devastator of fuel, without performing well.

Between the church tower and the church roof, the winter storms brought a lot of snow to the church floor. The column was closed by a sheet metal border.

On the 12th of October, I had to undergo a dangerous operation, as, following the proliferation of the left thyroid gland, a protrusion of the larynx had occurred as far as the right jaw jaw. As a result of the operation, a long and persistent hoarseness remained, so that the performance of ecclesiastical functions was associated with discomfort. 

From the end of October to the beginning of 1887, the measles were rampant, so the schools had to be closed. The epidemic has killed many children and several adults. The winter was extremely snowy and stormy. Paths and roads were often impassable for days. Almost daily I had to go out to funerals and restorations, so that I, the convalescent, could hardly recover from one day to the next.

In 1885 it should be added that the small bell has burst and has not yet been re-cast.

An unnamed woman handed me 1885 an amount of 100 guilders Ö.W. for the establishment of a “Pipe Foundation” ( Friday afternoon 3 clock ), but since they did not want to pay for the construction costs, so with her consent 4% silver pension was purchased, which is kept in the archive. The Messner now receives the interest for the chimes. It was invested in the local savings bank, the insert sheet is in the archive at the bonds. It is now also Thursday evening at 7 clock in honor of the deathly fear of Jesus rang.

Two people were killed in the blizzards: on March 12, Wagner’s wife and juice merchant Josefa Ritschel was found frozen to death in the field above the murder ground, where she might have lain for about 12 days.

The bell in the weight of 486 pounds served as a bell for the winter hour strike.  It was said to have shattered due to mishandling and gave a smeared odious sound. The master plumber Vinzenz Hauschild tried to improve the sound by painting, but in vain.

After long negotiations between the Lieutenancy and the provincial commissioner, Mr. Eduard Krauspenhaar, she gave on May 16, 1888 the authorization to order a new bell in the same weight. The bell foundry of Peter Hilzes explained the old material, the Kilo to take over 85 kreuzer, recalculated the kilo with 1 gulden 43 Kreuzer ö.W. So then a new bell was ordered with a ton. On July 20, 1888, the bell left Neustadt, arrived in Aussig on July 26 and was picked up there by Vinzenz Schönbach, number 331. The weight of the new bell is 251 kilos.

There was a rapturous applause as the still quite jubilant jubilation among the quite popular ways of the powerful song “When the grandfather took the grandmother” performed the golden wedding dance in the circles tightly closed by local children. But also moving was this sight, because he reminded so true and beautiful of the German proverb: “old love does not rust”.

New side altars – Since the local two side altars were already in a very bad and damaged condition and did not fit the style of the local parish church, I have supported myself since my being with the idea whether new altars are not created by the mild gifts of the local church benefactors could.

And only through my great effort, I finally managed to find a very good and religious family, who was willing to make the two side altars of their own. This family is wealthy, but it is still a great sacrifice for them. There are families in the community who have much more, but these have not done anything like this.

The peoples of Austria-Hungary are mourning the grave of their Empress, but they also seize the painful occasion to rally again in stilted love for the supreme throne and to express the feelings of loyalty to the ruler and his house. The faithful peoples can offer nothing to the ruler except their attachment, which was able to comfort the sublime Lord in this terrible misfortune.   We therefore fully agree with the request: “Almighty and eternal God may be the last to test this most difficult test, which he imposed in his inscrutable decree on our emperor, in his life so dear to us. God give strength and strength to our Emperor so that he can bear the infinite pain. May God hear us and at last lewht again the sun of divine grace over our beloved and heavily tested Emperor, over our dynasty and over our fatherland Austria! “

button industry    In this year 1908 , the production of the fabricated buttons is bad. Workers who earned 3 to 4 kroner in previous years and even more daily now earn barely half the amount mentioned above. Foreign workers were largely dismissed.

Finally a Christian social gathering    On the 8th of May, 1908 , in the hall of the Hotel “Rathaus” one of the equally active and linguistic secretary Mr. Heinrich Schmidt, from Warnsdorf convened, § 2 meeting took place. The conscript had been tolerant enough to send invitations to the other party, only the assembly showed that it had little political training and moderation.  The treaty soon and blessedly clarified the nature of the Christian Social Party and above all brought clarity to its political and economic successes, which must indeed be called great.  The speaker was very fortunate to learn that Vienna, with its 100,000 Czechs, has not yet made it to a public Czech school, that the German language has been declared by the Landtag to be the only ruling school and that Christian social party sharing is very recent By their explanation in German national affairs, here is meant the language dispute in Bohemia. But what did German-Bohemia do with its various German parties? One Czech school after another is being built in the German possession.   Czech officials moved in droves to German-Bohemia. The enforced bilingualism of the country is evident everywhere on every station board of the railway.

If one can not speak of a mass joining to the Christian Social Party in Peterswald, then the Assembly has had the good of bringing enlightenment about the much-blasphemed Christian Social Party. Would the German people understand that his much-vaunted German fidelity can not exist in the rejection of the Catholic religion of his ancestors, and in which Hasse is against her servant, who is certainly well in German Bohemia  , because Czechs are – Sons of German parents do not want to become a priest 07/07/1908   

For the maintenance of musical instruments, an amount of 28 Kr. 50 H. was exceptionally approved by the parish church in Peterswald for the year 1905.

June 24, 1908 The arbitrary act of the vicar in Peterswald regarding the forgiveness of not yet approved works to the execution must be strictly issued and it is noted that only exceptionally and only for this time, from the application of the provisions of paragraph 8 from 1806 Distance is taken. Finally, the kuk District Commissioner is asked to report in detail on the resubmission of the Kollandierungsaktes whether and how and at what cost the production of new iron windows in the church in Peterswald was carried out.

War memorial    In the history of Peterswald the 30th of August 1908 will be unforgettable , on which day the consecration of the war memorial and the celebration of the anniversary of the emperor’s diamond jubilee took place. At eleven o’clock in the afternoon, the pastor Alois Skliba celebrated a Levite ministry at an altar erected on the square, assisted by the Nollendorf pastor, Mr. Alois Schmidt and the public school counselor Anton Nitsche. During the office, the vocal club under the direction of the conductor in conjunction with the Vereinstafette got the vocals.

After the office, the pastor gave a speech in which he discussed the threefold memorial of the monument:

– Commemoration of the fallen of the Fatherland up there and of the Fatherland on earth – the Emperor. Then the singing society sang the popular anthem in several voices. After the welcome of all the guests by the veteran officer Wenzel Wolf, Mr. Bürgerfeuer Franz Fejfar developed in his splendid table speech a picture of the war and the peace of the 60 years of the emperor’s reign at the hand of the emperor’s anthem.   With the defilement before the dignitaries and the all warriors closed the so beautiful celebration.  The participation of the population was a very big one. Everywhere the houses were wreathed and flagged. Appeared were the district captain Lenderke of Aussig, the district chief Glöckner, the mayor and the doctor of Gottleuba, the municipal council of Peterswald, de veterans with flag and music of Tyssa, Schönwald and Gottleuba, the veterans of Nollendorf and Kulm, the Veterans Association of Peterswald Flag and music, the workers’ association with music, the singing society “Liedertafel”, the fire brigades and the gymnastics club.    After the festivities, firefighter Ferdinand Schönbach, who died in the fire on 28 June, was decorated for his 25-year membership in the fire department. The concert held in the afternoon enjoyed a very good visit.

The monument was erected to commemorate all the fallen for 100 years.

Our diocese is orphaned: Bishop Emmanuel Schöbel died. On the first Sunday of Advent, November 28, 1909, our head pastor and bishop, Bishop Emmanuel John, laid his aged head to sleep, having reached almost the age of 86, and we hope he entered the better afterlife. It condoled the hl. Father, Pope Pius X, His Majesty, the Emperor, the Apostolic Nuncio, the Cardinals of Vienna and Prague, the Minister of Education, the Governor, the Colonel Marshal, the General, and all the Bishops of Austria, the Chapters of the Chapter, of the Officers.            The solemn funeral, which took place on the following Thursdays, the 2nd of December, 1909, testified to the high veneration that the high immortal enjoyed in all circles .  More than 250 clergymen and about 80 theologians took part in it.

With the 1.Sept. In 1910 , Mr. Hugo Stehlik of Kekov and Ritter von Treustädt, former temporary chaplain in Ticklowitz, were hired as temporary catechists at the local Volks- und Bürgerschule.

New carrying sky    Since the old headliner had already become very old, damaged, and worn out, which also did not meet the liturgical regulations, since my being there the wish has been cherished to win a benefactor for this beautiful and noble purpose. Such a one was also found soon in the person of the former Vogteikommissär and Sparkasse director, the already deceased Mr. Anton Wolf, metal goods manufacturer in Peterswald No. 195.  However, as a result of his illness, especially his unexpected death and other causes, this, his promise and his plan remained unexecuted. 

But what he could not accomplish and accomplish has now been completed by his surviving wife, Agnes Wolf. For, with her husband, who has slept peacefully in the Lord’s womb, she has acquired a magnificent and elaborate supporting sky, corresponding to the liturgical regulations, for the price of 1,000 crowns. On this year’s feast of the Divine Mercy, the Eucharistic sacramental Divine Savior was carried for the first time under this magnificent canopy. Pardon the noble donor, Mrs. Agnes Wolf, the dear God a thousand times here on earth.

17.10.1913 New church bill leader Good-born, Mr. Franz-Josef Worsch, a merchant in Peterswald, has also taken over the office of the former accountant Anton Schönbach for the church in Peterswald and Nollendorf.

The construction of the church and the cemetery, approved on June 2, 1913, was adjusted with 11773 Kronen and was transferred to the master builder Karl Grohmann from Peterswald with a deduction of 4000 Kronen.

The holy father Pius X died On Tuesday, Aug. 20, 1914, the Telegraph wore out into the wide world, the funeral news, that our Holy Father, Pope Pius X, had gently fallen asleep in the Lord at 2:10 am.    The circumstances surrounding this death are quite unique .  Pope Pius X died in the midst of the most terrible confusion the world has ever seen . A terrible war may raise the globe to its foundations and it is the full truth when it is reported from Rome that gentle Pius was thrown from terror to the deathbed. A minor illness, a short bronchial catarrh was the cause of death.  It is comforting for us that almost in death the Holy Father expressed the hope that now the enemies of St. Church would be humbled. When he urged him to intervene against the outbreak of the war, he replied: the only ruler for whom an intervention could be successful was Emperor Franz Josef.  But with him the intervention is impossible, because the war in Austria is all too fair (!?)  He was elected to the pope on August 10, 1903. The ecclesiastical coronation of Cardinal Josef Sarto to the pope took place on 10 Aug. 1903. On August 21, 1914, the body of the Holy Father was already lowered into the cool crypt in St. Peter, as Pope Pius X did not want to be embalmed.

The new Pope Benedict XV.    The Catholic world, in the midst of the turmoil of war, which is now trembling throughout the world, has been given a new head, more quickly than anyone thought. On September 3, 1914, the Archbishop of Bologna, Giacomo de la Chiosa, was elected pope in the conclave and he chose the name of Benedict. The new Pope was born on 21.Nov. Born in Genoa in 1854.

Austria’s peoples are deeply moved by the grave of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, Archduchess of Hohenberg, who were so horribly murdered on June 28, 1914. The clergy of Austria united his prayers with those of all Austrian Catholics, that the Almighty may grant the two eternal rest.

The successor to the throne and his wife were murdered by conspirators in Sarajevo on June 28, 1914.  A few days later the Russian ambassador Hartwig suddenly died in Belgrade, in the house of the Austrian ambassador Giesl, to whom he arrived after 9 o’clock in the evening To a certain extent to apologize to Serbia as public opinion allowed them to sympathize with the assassins. He had barely spoken a few sentences as he sank dead from the chair. It is certain that Hartwig exercised the greatest influence on the hostile mood of Serbia against Austria. It was he who has rushed and stoked for years on his own initiative.   Russia wants the Serbs to prepare Austria’s weak side, using its dissatisfied South Slavs, to unleash the lotions that at the time Piedmont prepared Rome.

The emperor is dead.    A devastating mourning, long feared and yet come too suddenly, on the late evening of the 21st And in the morning hours of November 22, 1916 went out of the peaceful castle of Schönbrunn out into the world. The Emperor is dead.  Hapsburg’s peoples have been severely tested by Providence, sighing at this painful news, and as if paralyzed by the first terror, hearts and thoughts stood still for a moment.    The emperor dead! Dead in the middle of the world war, when the day of victory dawns and the dawn of peace paints its first glimmer in the sky.

Which of his sons and subjects does not mourn the tearful eyes of him, the benevolent father of his millions of children, the mild and chivalrous ruler and noble offspring of the Habsburg tribe, equal to the wise monarch and emperor of his peoples and to Langer, but also to the rare man? exemplary as a man and a Christian in the fulfillment of his duties, which had imposed on him conscience and faith, God and his office.

The Emperor is dead.  So says young and old, because they knew only one emperor and he is now dead.  Dead on the threshold of a new great period of time in Austria, Hungary and the European cultural world.

The Emperor is dead.  His iron will, too, which up to now has kept him to his prime, where others have long been at peace, and in the midst of every stroke of fate which every single man could have crushed a hard man, and his imperial office until the last hours of his life with a high degree of intellectual power, had to bow to the commandment of death. The fatal blows of the emperor could not have been harder than those of the individual Peterswälder, so my great-grandmother died of hunger and my great-great-grandmother hung herself in the despair of the famine around 1870 ).

The Emperor is dead.  But only his mortal shell. His soul dwells on its flocks, to whom he served faithfully in life, to whom he so often gave honor to his people, wherever he was in charge of his peoples fates in humble prayers.

Who does not remember 4 years ago when he followed with the murdered heir to the throne at the Eucharistic World Congress at the Blessed Sacrament in worship in the Galawagen. Who does not know the image of the praying emperor as he invokes God’s support for his armies and his kingdom in the world war.

May the Almighty receive the soul of his faithful servant, Emperor Franz-Josef, to the glowing multitudes of those heroes who excite by his word and example, in faithful duty to the Emperor and Fatherland, their blood and life in the sacred struggle ( this designation is heard also for wars of the 20 / 21st century from the Middle East ) on the battlefields or in the hinterland.

war mission    From 24 is May 29, 1917 which is arranged by the Very Reverend Pastors extraordinary mission took place here, to which the faithful masses flocked especially in recent days. The 1,000-person local beautiful church was usually overcrowded. Fr.

Slump in the local parish church in the post from 21 December 1921 to 1 January 1922 broke through the small church windows unknown perpetrators and wicked in the local parish church, and after they have resigned from the Tabernacle on the altar steps, she vomited the same force means chandelier peaks that have partially broken away and stolen from the same a small Monstranz and a Riborium of copper. The hl. Hosts scattered them on the altar steps.   The tabernacle, the altar cross, the altar lamp and the electrical system at the high altar were severely damaged. I, Alois Skliba, Dean, immediately organized a collection among the prisoners, the result of which amounted to more than 5000 Kr.  Around this amount the stolen objects could be bought again by the company Johann Staneck in Prague, namely the monstrance for 2663 Kr. And the riborium for 1846 Kr. A tabernacle was also renewed by the church painter  Herr Herrmann Perthen from Tyssa.  The church chandelier and the electrical system were immediately repaired by the local metalware manufacturer Mr. Franz Hiebsch, No. 149.

God knows it; I did not seek and celebrate the festivities of the same day, I defended myself to the best of my ability, but my will proved more powerless than love and the hot impetuosity of my dear parishioners. My heartfelt and deepest thanks to all!

Mr. District Vicar Edmund Tobisch held the St. Requim and the condakt.      Mr Bürgerguers Josef Karger thanked the community and the school for the sacrificial services. Mr. Dean Alois Skliba was in Peterswald for over 35 years, his efforts to maintain the church had been recognized by the most prestigious episcopal consistory by the titles “Dean” and “episcopal notary”. His body rests on field II of the religious cemetery, at the entrance, 1st tomb, left.  To commemorate him, a picture is glued in depicting the dean and his brother. ( no picture left ) Josef Stiel    . The hochw Reverend Bernard maneuvers of Nollendorf became the Ecurrando Administrator ( This is an impartial coming from outside executor of the late pastor, he solves the heritage and checks the posthumous Finance, which he then passes the following pastors ) On October 31 In 1932 , the writer moved in as a new pastor in Peterswald. A short overview of my CV:     Born on September 24, 1897 in Rosshaupt, Tachau district    I studied at the high school in Leitmeritz in the years 1908 – 1915.  From 1916 until the end of the war I was engaged in the military, including 1 ½ years in field service. After studying theology in Leitmeritz in the period 1918-1922 I was employed as a chaplain in Gablonz aN.   After major repairs ( installation of the electric light pipe, setting up the ovens, coloring ), which took several weeks, the house could be moved. On Sunday, the 13th of November was the celebration of the installation. Reverend Father, District Vicar Edmund Tobisch took the same action. Reverend. Pastor Augustin Grohmann from Zinnwald, a native of Peterswalder, gave the sermon. In addition to a large crowd of believers, the representatives of the authorities, as well as the local associations ( veterans, fire brigade, Deutscher Turnverein, singing club, agricultural association, German youth association had gathered at the invitation of the mayor Josef Karger  In addition, a delegation arrived densely occupied with acquaintances from the Gablonzer Kirchsprengel.   This was the last and only entry of Pastor Stiel, after pastor Alois Skliba died, who unfortunately did not continue the chronicle, but many who read this chronicle still have their own memories of that time and it would be nice if anyone could could bring to paper. I would very much like to continue this until 1945. For the time being, however – following Pastor Stil’s remarks – I will, in the words of Dr. Ing. Rudolf Püschel the continuation of the chronicle, which began on May 31, 2008 make:   31.5.2008 – New inauguration of the Baroque Cross Understanding – Friendship Peace Is new part of the inscription of the 1796 built and restored in 2008 baroque cross in the cemetery in Peterswald, to its inauguration on 31 May 2008 native Czechs and displaced Germans, a total of 150 between six and 85 years, met. Liane Jung, caretaker of the internally displaced person Peterswalder, welcomed those present, namely Vicar General Monsignore Karel Havelka, Deputy Mayor Walter Wolf, the Cross Restorer, Michael Bilek from Peterswald, the Markersbacher male choir and the Peterswalder Kinderchor. She read a greeting from Bernhard Bessel, mayor of the city of Hainburg, the German godparents of Peterswald and patron of the expelled Peterswalder. Bessel congratulated on the inauguration of the restored baroque cross and regretted not being able to attend the inauguration ceremony.  He thanked the initiators of the restoration (Liane Jung, Renate von Babka, Rüdiger Waurig and Dr. Rudolf Püschel), the 25 donors responsible for the funding, and the sculptor Michael Bilek from Peterswalde for their workmanship and artistic success. The restoration of the cemetery cross proves to him the veracity of Friedrich von Schiller’s words: “Homeland is probably the dearest thing people have”. Literally he wrote: “….. who keeps his home and his origin alive in the heart, can muster the strength to shape the future with moderation, steadiness, patience, courage and confidence.” And further: “… this beautiful cross, which is newly consecrated today, stands not only for your dignity and solidarity with your homeland, but also for your deep and firm faith (in God), which you also in the most difficult situations have stopped; so you could always give direction to your life, instead of becoming empty inside and disoriented “. Then General Vicar Monsignore Karel Havelka from Leitmeritz blessed the cross. He called the restoration a great work of art, and rewarded the donors and restorers with a heartfelt “Pardon God”. He expressed the hope that the injustice of expulsion would never be repeated. Pointing to the Holy Cross, he recalled the salvation and reconciliation of humanity through Jesus Christ. The blessing ended with praying together of the “Lord’s Prayer” and “Hail Mary,” and singing the hymn “Great God we praise you”.   The Monsignor’s Words reminded the reviewer of a scene that television had shown almost exactly 40 years ago: it was at the time of the Prague Spring when communist party leader Dubcek tried to give some humanity to communism in the Czechoslovak Socialist People’s Republic. He once appeared on the balcony of the Hradschin to accept the homage to tens of thousands of his followers. Microphone or speakers were not available. So Dubcek pointed first to himself, then to the crowd and then spread his arms as a gesture of embrace.  This gesture, too, symbolized the cross, which therefore also has significance outside of the Christian religion: the cross post symbolizes a relationship between earth and heaven and thus between God and man. His bar symbolizes the outstretched arms of the Redeemer as a symbol of interpersonal relationships. Thus, the cross is a symbol of understanding, friendship and peace between people, regardless of their race, religion, nationality or political attitude. Walter Wolf, deputy Czech mayor of Peterswald, welcomed the participants on behalf of his community representatives. He described the cross inauguration as evidence of a peaceful coexistence of the present Czech with the former German inhabitants of Peterswald, despite the “time of darkness in our relations … between the years 1938-45 and (in the) subsequent period”.  He proclaimed the preservation and restoration of the ruin of the Peterswalder Baroque church, which he regards as the dominant and cultural asset of his community, and expressed the hope of being able to welcome all those present at the inauguration. At the end of the celebration, Renate von Babka thanked the guests for coming. She quoted from one of the last letters of the Nollendorfer Willibald Bail, who had looked forward to the inauguration of the cross, the death but then made the participation impossible. He wrote: “Youth wants peace and reconciliation. She finds it easier to forgive because she did not have to experience misdeeds and expropriation. There are so many Czechs who want to reach out to reconciliation and peace. It would be new wrong not to accept this insight of the Czechs. “ The German initiators and donators of the Kreuzrestaurierung said goodbye to the German and Czech guests in the conviction that they had made a valuable contribution not only to the Sudeten German culture of remembrance, but also to the understanding between the two peoples, in the spirit of Willibald Bail, the Christian and others Religions, and the “Charter of German Expellees” adopted in 1950. Rudolf Püschel, Mountain View CA, USA                                                                                                                              Epilogue This was the summary of the parish chronicle from the year 1825 onwards. I was able to experience a lot of it up close and that, I hope, goes as well for the reader.   Some nights I used the magnifying glass to “blow my ears” to put together word for letter, often very poorly legible writing of the various pastors, into a single word. What I add as an afterword only reflects my feelings and hopes; I speak only for my person, because everyone, especially the experience generation, has its own feelings and opinions: After 1945followed a long, dark and difficult period of mutual relations between the displaced Germans and the Czechs. In 1969 , as a child, I was in Peterswald with my parents. I was well aware that my parents were expelled there, but under what circumstances, I was not talked about. Well, in 1969 I was a beginning “teen”, I saw the world quite loosely and did not worry about the expulsion. I went with the guys Heinz Kopp, Peter Doleschal and Pepi Prochaska from Peterswald into the disco in the town hall and found Peterswald quite wonderful. After that came other interests for me; I got married, my dad died early and I had to take care of Mama and the conversion and the preservation of my heritage in Backnang, after that mom got sick and I had to take care of my mother besides my job. These were hard years for me.  When the time came when I could do more for myself, I always had Peterswald in the back of my mind and I always wanted to know who my ancestors were and with this research I started, as I said, several years ago very intense and it has lost none of the fascination to find out how it used to be.  But I’m also worried about the future. When the accession of the Czech Republic came to the EU, many things changed concerning the relationship between Germans and Czechs. One is now a “united Europe”.  In the meantime all limits have fallen and you can move freely. For the first time in the Czech Republic, there was a Minister for Human Rights and National Minorities, Dr. Ing. Dzamila Stehlikova, apologizing to fellow citizens of German nationality in her 2007/2008 New Year letter. (see expression) The 31 May 2008- A new age of relationships with the home of my ancestors begins. For the first time there was something jointly organized between present and former inhabitants of Peterswald; the inauguration ceremony of the Baroque Cross of 1796 restored in the Peterswald cemetery by financing of former Peterswaldern. In my speech during this celebration, I expressed the hope that this day will be a milestone in relations and that I would like to follow the recommendations of the recently deceased, Willibald Bail, in one of his last letters: Youth wants peace,  It is easier for you because you did not have to experience the expulsion. It would be new injustice to reject the hand which many Czechs hand us to reconciliation. Naturally, it is also important to me, and I hope for the mayor, Mr. Kutina, and his deputy, that the roots of our ancestors in Peterswald be respected. This common day should not be the last common project. Mr Rüdiger Waurig and myself, we have various plans for the future, which we will first implement in October 2008 – a joint hiking week. During my various stays in Peterswald, I was able to make many contacts with the younger generation of the Peterswalders; they were always pleasant encounters. In addition, I feel very connected to Peterswald, but I am extremely grateful that I am born in “my Schwobaländle” and may live here, because in contrast to the above young generation in Peterswald I have a very beautiful and simple life, which I my parents and their life of deprivation during the expulsion and the time afterwards.
