GOTTLIEB von der DRESSEL called DRESSEL

CHRONOLOGY:
born: 1743, Willenberg, East Prussia
mar: 1769, Stallupoenen, East Prussia, at age 26 married Marianna Doerfer von Scheiberlechen (n1.1; n1.2) and with his bride moved to this city.
1778: Gottlieb and his brothers Veit, Hans and their families received passports for North America and left East Prussia from Koenigsberg, but        as of now, no record of their arrival has been found in the American Archives.  They traveled in a group which numbered over a 100 persons, all of whom were related.  This group was organized by Pastor Brauer, who lived in Stallupoenen and already in 1741 organized immigration groups to North America, (source).
It is possible, that since this was the time of the American revolutionary War and that since the British Navy was blockading American ports, the group was not able to immigrate to North America but went some where else. Despite repeated research and advertising no records regarding Gottlieb and his brothers has as yet been found.

NOTES FOR GOTTLIEB DRESSEL:

1.3   In Grygier's manuscript, the Allenstein Archive secondary records state that both Jakub Dorfer and his wife Magdalena nee Hofer were born on the tadthof estate in Salzburg. Stadthof estate cannot be identyfied, however, in primary records a Jakub Dorfer is found as the owner of the Scheiberlechen and Goettschenlechen estates and he emigrated with children to East Prussia in 1732. The Hofer family in 1732 owned the Gerhof estate, and it is possible that Stadthof estate was confused with Gerhof estate, p19;p20;p21

which eventually resulted in their bankruptcy

 

1813: Thalers due to the requisitions performed by the French army.
1814:  Only Dressel Family and Lega Family Fulling Mills remained in operation in the Willlenberg district because of the great economic damage done due to the defeat of Prussia and Russia by Napoleon in 1807 (Treaty of Tilsit) and because of the war damages inflicted during the 1812 battles fought in the Willenberg Ortelsberg district, APO I-3759, Mar. 12,

Since the Dressel family frequently married into the Salzburg families who were expelled from Salzburg in 1732, it is possible that the family of Katharina Barbara nee Peter was the Willenberg branch of the Salzburg Petter (Pettler, Peitler, etc) family who immigrated to East Prussia in 1732, p19;p20;p21.

1. Ursula, XVI.29, born 1755 is believed to be NN Grossmann's wife.

AUGUSTOW DROSSEL BRANCH

Click here for prof. Edmund Kaczan history of the Drossel Family. "Saga Rodu Drosselow przybylych do Dobr sztabinskich Karola Hrabiego Brzostowskiego w poczatku lat dwudziestych XIX wieku."


Both Professor Grygier and Professor Kaczan believed that the Augustyn Drossel family belonged to the von der Dressel family and were the probable descendants of Ludwig XX.8 who was born in 1728 in Rastenburg.
