My great-great grandfather, HEINRICH AUGUST PETIG immigrated to Jefferson Co. Wisconsin from the village of Bega, Lippe Detmold, Germany prior to 1872. He was born 7 Jan 1826 and married Wilhelmina Muller. He farmed in Johnson Creek the remainder of his life and died in 1909. The farm he established has remained in the Petig family.

I'm sure there is a connection here but I do not have any other information on him, except that the family was Moravian. I do not know if they stopped in CT first, or came straight away to WI. Descendants still live in Jefferson Co. Wisconsin and attend the Ebenezer Moravian church in Watertown. Many Petigs are buried in that church cemetery.

I would be happy to connect him up with other Detmold Petigs or swap info with descendants.
