Andreas Porsch, son Friedrich Wilhelm/ Dorothea Steppat
Andreas was born 1777, possibly in Russia although they lived in Poland which became Oest Prussia, right on the border with Lithuania. He was married to someone we have not identified and had a large family, 8 or 10 children according to Grandpa. One of these was Friedrich Wilhelm Porsch, b. 1807. Friedrich married twice. The first we have not identified but they also had several children who were already grown when he married the second time to Dorothea Steppat who was Lithuanian by birth. They married Dec 27, 1857. Dorothea had only two children, Wilhelm Friedrich and Martha Maria.
Maria married Carl Heinrich Reinhold Hagedorn and they lived in Berlin, Germany. They had only one child, Friedrich Reinhold Alfred Hagedorn, who was killed in World War I in France. He had married and his wife Helene Elsbeth Scheine raised their only daughter, Hildegard, who married Leopold Wlhelm Walther Kienast. They had two children still living in Berlin.
Wilhelm Friedrich was my grandfather. His story is in my other post.
