Predigerdienst in Barstede bis 1931

Zusammengestellt von Hinrich Schoolmann. (Dieser Text ist einem Zeitungsartikel entnommen, der mir nur als Kopie vorliegt. Ich habe keine Ahnung wann und in welcher Zeitung er erschienen ist.)

Barstede. Der Ort begegnet uns um 1408 als Barstede (Friedländers Urkundenbuch I 214) und im Stader Copiar um 1420 als Kerstede, hier dürfte jedoch ein Druck- oder Schreibfehler die Verstümmelung des Namens verursacht haben. Was im übrigen über den Ort und über die Kirche im allgemeinen bekannt ist, hat Bernhard Uphoff in seiner Ortskunde gesagt.

Diese Angaben möchte ich insoweit ergänzen, als ich die Geistlichen benenne, die seit 1595 lückenlos bis 1931, als die Stelle vakant wurde, bekannt sind. Aus der vorreformatorischen Zeit sind keine Prediger genannt. Wenn ich Houtrouw richtig verstehe, ist die Gemeinde damals von Aurich aus bedient worden. Dies geht vielleicht auch daraus hervor, dass der Auricher Prediger Herr Johannes im Jahre 1408 den von ihm in dortiger Kirche gestifteten Altar u. a. mit Wiesen in Barstede dotiert. (Houtrouw, Ostfriesland S. 68/69).

In der Zeit nach der Reformation standen folgende Geistliche in Barstede:

 

1540 Derk Specker

Spielfilm über die Kettwig WerkeFeature Film about Kettwig Industries

Durch Zufall bin ich im Internet auf einen deutschen Spielfilm aus dem Jahre 1940 gestoßen, der in den Kettwig-Werken nahe der französischen Grenze spielt. Es handelt sich natürlich um einen Propagandafilm, ist aber für die Familiengeschichte sicher interessant.

[Quelle: Murnau StiftungIMDbDeutscher Tonfilm]

Kurzinhalt:
Deutschland während des Zweiten Weltkriegs: In den Rüstungswerken der Familie Kettwig wird ständig an neuen Geräten zur Abwehr ausländischer Angriffe getüftelt.

 

Zur Zeit entwickeln Ingenieure einen besonderen Draht, der als Ballonsperre dienen soll. Natürlich versuchen ausländische Spione immer wieder, Informationen über den Stand der Entwicklungen in den Labors der Kettwig-Werke zu erhalten. Über den verräterischen Kantinenkellner Nolte treten die Agenten mit dem hoch verschuldeten Zeichner Grelling in Kontakt. Gleichzeitig macht sich eine hübsche Spionin an den jungen Bernd Kettwig heran, während seine Sekretärin Inge Neuhaus von einem weitgereisten Gentleman namens Faerber umgarnt wird. Es scheint, als würden die ausländischen Spione ihr Ziel erreichen, da durchschaut Inge in letzter Minute das falsche Spiel ihres vermeintlichen Verehrers. Fast alle Spitzel können verhaftet werden, nur Faerber gelingt mit dem Privatjet von Bernd Kettwig die Flucht. Doch dies ist eine willkommene Gelegenheit, die neuen Luftabwehrdrähte der Kettwig-Werke zu testen…

Nach einer Idee von: Georg C. Klaren

Das Programm von heute nr. 1683

By chance I came upon a German feature film, produced in 1940, which takes place in the Kettwig industries close to the French border. Of course it is a propaganda film, but may be interesting for family historians. Sorry, but it is only in German

At this time all young men had to serve in the German army, which Emmo and his brothers did not want to do. One brother John C. and sister Irene came before him. They settled at Daws [Dows], Iowa, where they had relatives. Emmo returned to Germany in 1900 to visit his parents and never saw them again. In 1903 he came to South Dakota where he met and married Ricka Luken Nov. 13, 1907. They farmed in the Hazel area. The Kettwigs moved to Watertown [South Dakota, SD] in 1950.

Florence Helena was born in 1908 and died in 1930 ??. She married Jack McAfee and had one son Jack, born in 1935.

The first child, Lena, was born on Sept. 1910. They continued in business until the fall of 1913 when they moved to the Herman Abraham farm in Brantford Township. It was here that their second child, Johnny, was born on Nov. 15, 1914. They continued to farm on the Abraham location until the fall of 1918 when they moved onto one quarter section purchased land on which they built a new house and farm buildings. This was also located in Brantford Township, School district 3.On March 29, 1919, a third child, Harwey, was born. He lived only 16 months, dying of a mastoid infection. On May 1, 1929, a fourth child, Doris, was born. All the children attended Brantford 3 grade school, where John was a member of the school board for 25 years.
