Szczerbin (Scherben), Kreis Wirsitz, Posen

Szczerbin is a manorial village south of Lobsens in Kreis Wirsitz. Lorenz Remus lived in this village around 1790; his child Gottlieb was born here in June of 1791. From here he moved on to Szgelin, Kreis Strelno. Ultimately most of his family ended up in Bialobloty. Here I am arriving in Szczerbin.

Here is a picture of the old manorial estate's barn (I could not find the manor house (gut)).
