Brazil: Date of death PAUL HARTWIG
« on: Saturday 02 March 19 22:30 GMT (UK) »
Hello,

some time ago I had made a search query for Paul Hartwig in a German forum. A participant gave me the tip to post my search request in this forum.

I have unsuccessful searched the Brazilian newspapers on memoria.bn and the 7 "Brazil"-volumes with German emigrants.

I'm looking (first) for the date of death of Paul Hartwig, who was murdered about 1925 in Brazil, and (second) for the return dates of his daughter Eva, who my grandmother brought back to Germany in 1926 (according to her own words on a banana steamer). The following is known to me:

- Max Paul Hartwig *18.02.1891/Gräbendorf (district Teltow)
- wife Martha Frieda Hulda Hartwig née Bock *20.05.1899/Schönebeck
- daughter Eva Helene Frieda Hartwig *06.03.1915/Berlin
- son Paul Helmuth Hartwig *11.02.1922/Berlin   oo03.11.1949/Rio de Janeiro
- departure on 28.02.1924 from Hamburg to Santos by ship Cap Polonio
- last place of residence: Berlin

The wife Martha Hartwig is said to have spent some time in prison because she was partly blamed for the murder of her husband.

I am grateful for every tip.

Best regards
Brigitte

Hi Brigitte,
I have checked the various newspapers in Rio for the years 1925 and 26, and  agree with you there appears to be no reporting.  I wonder if the dates are correct?
Davies - Brazil
Pooley - London
Preston- Lincoln
Martyn - Lincoln

Griffin - Dorset
Poore - Dorset
Dickinson - Dorset
