Excerpt from the Patscheider Chronicle (written in 1988 by Mag.a Giselheid Patscheider-Riedmann):
Ferdinand Patscheider (1848-1897) married Adelheid Schuchter (1854-1911) on April 29, 1878 in Pfunds. As a civil servant forester, Ferdinand was frequently assigned to new posts, and the couple had to move often with their children.
- Their first child, Therese, was born in Pfunds in 1879. She married Albin Redl from Linz in 1910 and became the mother of Gundl Janota.
- Their second and third children, Anton and Richard, were born in Berwang (Lechtal) in 1882 and 1883, respectively.
- Their fourth child, Maria Magdalena, was born in Klausen in 1887. She became a teacher in Sterzing but later suffered from a nervous condition and disappeared in 1938.
- Their youngest child, Ida, was born in Mayrhofen in 1892. She became a teacher and married Heinrich Müller, a stage designer in Bern. They had a son named Berthold, born in 1923.
Ferdinand was a well-liked guest in social settings, but feared as a forester by poachers. He also had a love for singing, which he passed on to his children. Due to financial difficulties, the couple decided to give their two oldest children, Therese and Anton, to their aunt Therese and her husband Dr. Niederleitinger in Rohrbach (Upper Austria) for a better education. The Niederleitinger couple had no children of their own, so the two Forester children were able to receive an excellent education from their foster parents. Anton attended secondary school in Freistadt for the first few years.
Ferdinand passed away in 1897 in Mayrhofen in the Zillertal. Adelheid was left to raise their children alone, facing many challenges, but with the help of God and the kindness of others, she was able to provide them with an education. Both sons were able to complete their studies successfully.
