Discussion & Documentation: 

Franz Funk was born about 1804. He married Anna. They and their children immigrated in 1855 from Augustwalde bei Marienburg, Prussia, to the Am Trak colonies, arriving there in 1856. Anna evidently died between 1856 and 1857 when the 1857 Census of Hahnsau was taken, because Franz is listed there married to Sara Jantzen in Household No. 19.

Today, Augustwalde is located in Poland and known as Wiśniewo.
