Reetz (Raciaz), Kreis Tuchel, West Prussia
Reetz is a pleasant lake side village betweenTuchel and Konitz. The fine church here led to the use of the church for marriage and baptisms for Remus families in the surrounding areas. For example, Johan (Michael) Remus and Eva Klotz were married here. Also Caspar Hoppe and his wife Barbara Elisabeth Remus moved here from Zbosse. Michael Remus and Johanna Grabow and their descendents lived here; this family is shown as family 3 of the Descendents of Adam Remus of Skrznki in Kreis Schwetz and his son Christian of Bukowiec in Kreis Schwetz.
