I have Witt ancestors from the Nowy Dwor area.
My maternal great grandfather was Ludwig Witt, born in 1849 in Reischewo.
His parents were Samuel Witt (1802)and Wilhelmina (Meinert) (1822) Ludwig
had a sister Fryderyka born Feb 26, 1846.
Two of Ludwigs nine children - Emily (married a Kosmahl) and  Wilhelm
emigrated to Cleveland, Ohio in 1908 and 1912 respectively. Mathilda Witt
(Janke) was my grandmother, left Poland in 1944 and died in Germany.

Ludwig was married to Rosalie Gruenke who was born in Skierdy in 1856.

My tree is on Ancestry.com ( Tullmann-Burnham) family tree.

I would love more information about Samuel Witt. Place of birth, year of
death, names of parents, etc.
Some family information claims Samuel Witt was born in Holland and that he
and his wife were stoned to death in Russia. But, I have no information
verifying any of that.

Reischewo birth records from mid 1800's are in the LDS library in Salt Lake
City, Utah.
