      DEATH OF MR C. F. LIETZOW. A very old and respected resident of this district in the person of Mr. Carl F. Lietzow, passed away in the Ipswich Hospital on Wednesday last. The deceased, who had suffered from an internal complaint for a number of years, entered the institution on the 14th instant, and was apparently doing well up to Tuesday last, when he took a bad turn, and the end, which was sudden, came on the following day. The late Mr. Lietzow who was 67 years of age, at the time of his demise, was born in Poland, Germany, and arrived in Queensland by the ship Charles Dickens some 34 years ago. He settled for a time at Minden, where he engaged in farming pursuits, and subsequently came to Laidley, eventually acquiring a farm at Plainland, which he worked up to a couple of years ago, when he disposed of his interests, and came to reside in North Laidley, where he lived a retired life. The deceased was a man of a quiet disposition, was honest and straightforward in all his transactions, and was a true and faithful adherent of his church. The corpse was conveyed to Laidley on Wednesday evening, and the funeral cortege left the departed's late residence for the cemetery at Plainland on Thursday afternoon, the large number who joined in the procession being an indication of their esteem and respect for him. A short service was conducted at the house by Pastor Wallatt prior to the funeral starting, while at the graveside the rev gentleman made very touching and kindly references to the Christian life which the deceased led. He is survived by a widow (his second wife) and five step-daughters and a son. Their names are as follow :--Mrs. Gustav Nuendorff and Mrs. O. Wenck, of Minden ; Mrs. C. Sankowsky, of Gin Gin ; Mrs. E. F. Lose, of Laidley ; Miss E Behm, of Laidley ; and Mr. Albert Behm, of Minden.

    Notes 
    • Karl married Karoline Schafferius (née HOPP) after her husband, Gottfried, and five of their children had died, possibly during Cholera epidemics in Germany in the late 1860s.  Karl and Karoline had two male children (deceased).

      Karl and two of the surviving Schafferius children, Natalie and Julius,  migrated to Australia through Hamburg on the "Charles Dickens" which left Hamburg on 5th April 1877 and arrived in Brisbane in 4th September 1877 (Free Nominated). The eldest child, Albert, emigrated on his own three years later on the "Silver Eagle" landing in Maryborough, but moved to Laidley, then Ropeley to join the rest of the family.

      The family settled at Ropeley, near Gatton, in South-East Queensland.  Karl also selected 80 acres at Plainland for Julius Wilhelm Schafferius and 80 acres for Ludwig Fritz (Natalie's husband).
