I am currently researching the Petig family from Detmold, Germany. I am looking for the ancestors of Frederick Petig. Frederick Petig married Louisa Grote in Detmold, Germany. He was a police officer in Detmold where he served as a captain. He also served in the German military. Frederick died about 1871. Their children were Frederick Jr., William, George, Herman, and Simon.
William Petig was born in Detmold in 1863. He later migrated to Connecticut in 1886. He married Anna Margaretha Schaefer in Rockville, Connecticut.
Anyone with information regarding the Petig surname, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
