Something doesn't feel right to me about August Splett's birth year of 1867.
The St. Pete's records has an August born in Jan 1867.

August Splett and Justine Neumann were married in November 1883.  This would mean August was not yet 17 years old when he married.   This is possible, but do question this.

  Subject: [Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Family Splett Information

                 I am looking for information on my father's family.  He died
  in WWII fighting for the German Army just a few miles from where he was born
  - Pustomyty, Ukraine.  His name was Christoph Splett.  He left the Ukraine
  as a child when his mother packed up the family and moved to Ost Pressen -
  East Prussia.  His father was August Splett  born in 1867 in the Ukraine
  around Zhitomir.  His mother was Justine Neumann - born 1865 in Paterkau,
  Poland.  They lived in the Zhitomir, Heimtal. Elinow, Pustomyty, and
  Rozyszcze.  August's father was Christoph (Kristov) Splett (Split) and his
  mother was Juliane Maler (Mahlen).  This is all the information that I have
  been able to find using the SGGEE, the St Petersburg archives, and other
  sources.  I am hoping that someone has had a little better luck and would be
  willing to share their information.  So much has been lost and will never be
  known again.  It would be nice to pass my family's history down to my
  children and grandchildren.  Hope to hear from you soon.
