Schlotfeldt, Hans Henry Family Farm
Schlotfeldt, Hans Henry Family Farm
BIRTHPLACE OF HANS HENRY SCHLOTFELDT in 1808 AND HIS FATHER IN 1774. These photos were taken by Jim Schlotfeldt in August of 1999. The current owner led Jim to a spot beside a machine building where he scraped away some soil and exposed a stone engraved with the name and the 1774 birthdate of Hans Henry's father, Jochim. We then knew for sure this was the homesite. Fay Schlotfeldt had earlier sent copies of church records to Otto Schlotfeldt of Bordesholm Germany and Hans-Hinrich Schlotfeldt of Flintbek. Those records enabled Hans-Hinrich and his family to lead Jim to this place as well as the family farm in Klein Barkau where Hans & Catherine lived before coming to the U.S. (1835, 40 & 45 census) They are all thatched roofed even today and are tapered inward to help shield the siding from rain. In addition to Jim, cousin Cynthia Stack has visited the person currently farming here. The language differences just yielded that he knew Schlotfeldts once owned it. In 2005, Marga Schlotfeldt of Meimersdorf drove here, a short 2 and a half miles. They now have met the current resident and he is being "visited" often by Schlotfeldts from around the world. Fay has joked he should charge for "tours". In April 2007 Marga found the marriage record of Old Jochim, born 1774 and the widow Cath. Dibbern, (also born a Dibbern). Her grandfather had sold a farm in Meimersdorf and purchased a klein Flintbek farm. Catherine's family, including the husband who had a long illness, had died and after marriage to Jochim he took over running the farm. - Fay Schlotfeldt

Vorder Giebel Painting
Vorder Giebel Painting
Painting of Vorder Giebel "Gibel". It was commissioned by Christian Gerber (I0018). Here are notes from Peter Gerber (with corrections):

I think I sent you a foto of a painting of the Gibel-farm by Otto Siegentaler (attached again)

When I fotographed that painting, I thought the painter made the "Spycher" much too big.....see photo of yesterday from about the same place.

Yesterday I asked John at Gibel about that. We showed him the painting (Marianne brought it with her), he was rather touched and told us, that he remebered the production of the painting. It was a brother of Ruedi Gerber, Christian Gerber from Reinach (I0018) who ordered the painting from a painter living in Reinach. The painter went to Gibel after the second world war (John doesn't remember the year, between 1945 and 1950) and made a first painting. The Spycher then was indeed much larger than now, about 3 meters larger at the right and the left and with another front. The roof was shingled ("Schindeln" in German), but damaged and the tiles to make it anew were stocked nearby. The painter painted also the stocks of tiles.....which didn't please Ruedi. So Ruedi asked the painter to leave away the stocked tiles....the painter then made at home three copies of the painting, one for Fritz, one for Christian and the third for a child of Christian. We don't know, where the other two copies and the first painting are now, certainly not at Gibel.

John was rather touched looking at the painting and even remembered the trees painted (and what fruit they had, they are now no longer there). The "Spycher" has been made smaller since then, the wood for the enlargement was rather damaged from the "Hausbock" (an insect making holes in the wood).
