Weissenthal (Skoraczewo), Kreis Wirsitz
Weissenthal (Skoraczewo) was the home of August Remus' second wife Rosa Piekarska. After they married, they had many children as they moved from estate to estate in the area. After August died in the 1880's in Weissenthurm, the rest of the family moved to the Chicago area. Click here for that family.

Most of the important events in their lives were celebrated at the Lutheran Church in Mrotschen. Weissenthal (Skoraczewo) was a manorial village with the manor house (gut). Here is a closeup map of the village in 1939:
