    Thanks to the replies to my query, I have now a good idea what this family member 'did for a living'.  The Marsch family in the Grünberg area of Lower Silesia were engaged in a wide variety of occupations, e.g. gardeners, clerks of the court, inn keepers, teamsters, farmers and merchants to name a few, however the position of  'General-Pächter' was unique.

      I am confused regarding the occupation (below) of a member of the Marsch family in Grünberg, Niederschlesien in 1843.  I would be grateful for any translation or explanation forthcoming.  The information was obtained from the Grünberg Wochenblatter of that time.
  'General-Pächter der Grünberg'schen Kämmerei-Güter Lieutenant'

  Thank you, 
  John Marsch
