Datterode, Germany

Datterode, Germany

This is the town in Germany where the Pfifferling family was originally from. My mother's great-great-grandfather, Sander, great-grandfather, Joseph, and her grandfather, Sander, were all born in Datterode. Joseph and his wife, Jettchen, had 13 children. Their house, Brunnenstraße 24,(where the red pin is) is still known as “the 13-children house”. Opa Karl's oldest sister, Meta, and older brother, Adolph, were also born in Datterode. The family then moved to Wanfried, and then again to Halle/Saale.
