Gross Mangelmuhle (Medromiez Wielki), Kreis Tuchel, West Prussia

Gross Mangelmuhle is a manorial village in Kreis Tuchel. In the early 1800's a large part of the Remus family was moving from Kreis Flatow and Kries Schlochau to Kreis Tuchel. Kensau and Gross Mangemuhle had important concentrations of family members; Jehlenz was the local Catholic Church where their baptisms and marriages were recorded. Paul Remus and Veronica Zmich (and her in-laws) lived in this village. This family is shown as family 6 of the Descendents of Adam Remus of Skrznki in Kreis Schwetz and his son Christian of Bukowiec in Kreis Schwetz. Click here for that family tree. Their children moved on to Summin and Zamarte, both in Kreis Tuchel.
