Am looking for information on the family of Edward Powitzky who was most probably born in the late 1830s or early 1840s. He immigrated to the U.S. in the 1850s from a place named Nimeqek, which I believe is located in Brandenberg. Edward settled in Fayette Co., Texas and married Caroline Brieger.
If you are descended from the Powitzky family or if you have any information on them, especially Edward's lineage, his life before he immigrated to the U.S. and/or where and when he died and where he is buried, please let me hear from you! Thanks!
