I only have a copy of a copy. The letter was written by his sister,in 1902, in response to a letter from his wife. after he died. whose name was Elenora Kowalski, by the way. and as near as I can decipher, the county looks like wert...Preiz....But that is probably not even close. The nearest big city to the place now is Gdansk, which is still pretty far away. My cousin has the originals of the letter and the translation. I'll ask her.
Wilhelm Scheffler had 3 or 4 siblings. The only one whose name I know is Elenora. His parents were Michael Scheffler & Anna BICHERT. He came here in 1861, joined up in the Civil War.
