I am trying to find out where Emelia Wyzlinski was born, I believe around 1837 either in Berlin, Germany or the Prussian/German land around Darsow, Pommerania, Poland. She married Ferdinand Knack and lived in Berlin, Germany and had 4 boys. August Wyzlinski Knack, b 1862,Emil W.Knack b.1872, Albert Franz b. 1875, and Paul Ferdinand Knack, b.1877 all ib Berlin, Germany. She emigrated to the USA in 1882 and settled in Wisconsin. Ferdinand who had deserted the family in Germany came over to Springwater,Waushara Co., Wisconsin in 1886. He promptly poisoned Emelia on the family farm in April 1889 I have not been able to find anything on her in Wisconsin. The next month Ferdinand married a girl from Princeton, Wisconsin and poisoned her. He went to Waupun, Dodge Co.,Wisconsin Penitenary for the rest of his life. He escaped twice. He died in the jail and is buried on the jail grounds in August 1923
