Double wedding on June 10th, 1902 in Braunsdorf
Antonia Elisabeth Rosner, widowed tailor, marries Wilhelm Jarosch and Theresia Rosner marries Albert Krause, journeyman baker in the Rosner bakery. The dowry of the brides made it possible for Theresia to buy the Krause farm, which was mentioned more often later, and for Antonia Elisabeth to buy the inn "zur Piltscher Brücke" in Troppau, which had been leased from her father-in-law until then.
In the wedding party (second picture right) we still recognize the following relatives:
- From left to right: Alfred Proksch, Milli Rosner, Josef Krause, Fini, Hans Rosner.
- 1st row of seats: Aunt Mali (born Rosner), her sister Clara standing behind, bride's father and brother Anton Rosner, bride and groom Jarosch, bride and groom Krause, bride's mother Theresia Rosner, father Krause.
- Lady with hat behind Wilhelm Jarosch his sister Antonie Proksch, behind the bride Theresia Mrs. Böhne, born Rosner, mother of Max Böhne from Vienna and the two similarly dressed girls to her right; in between Mrs. Rosalia Rosner from Aubeln, mother of Fritz, Max, Hans and Milli Rosner; her husband Josef in the last row behind the Böhnel daughter on the left.
After Wilhelm and Antonia Jarosch were able to purchase the inn "zur Piltscherbrücke" in Troppau partly with Wilhelm's own funds, but also with the bride's dowry, Anton Jarosch, who had been a tenant until then, retired.
The couple Jarosch had to work hard together, but with diligence and commercial skill they succeeded in making the inn a popular meeting place; partly to dine there well bourgeois, partly to cultivate sociability, be it at large slaughter festivals or cozy meetings of the local associations there.
In the yard of the own object there were stables and sheds, here the Fiaker Pfluger had accommodated his horses and carriages. On the adjacent picture you can imagine the situation at that time well, in the background the married couple Jarosch with their first-born son Willi. In spite of all successes, however, bad strokes of fate did not stay away, because the joy about Willi, born in 1907, did not last long, at the age of 10 months he died of whooping cough, which was so dangerous at that time.
In 1914 the 1st World War began, my parents leased their inn and moved to Braunsdorf, my father had agreed to manage the Krause farm, as Uncle Albert was immediately drafted into the Austrian army. My father took on this task with his characteristic verve, had prudently accompanied the various groups of Russian prisoners of war to work in the fields, these and the rural population paid him, the townspeople honest respect, so he was awarded, among other things, the honorary membership of the volunteer fire department of Braunsdorf. In Braunsdorf I came in 1915 in the local elementary school and despite war and restriction I enjoyed these years very much, I always had playmates and the life in the countryside was very suitable for my nature.
In 1916 we returned to Troppau, my father had to run his inn again himself, since his tenant had to enlist as well. It was a difficult time, there was hardly any food, one had laboriously organized somewhere a barrel of beer, which we, my father and I had to bring home with the ladder wagon through the city, the usual means of transport of horse and wagon were in the war effort, the business was literally stormed - for a mug of beer!
End of chronicle excerpt Wilhelmine Jarosch-Patscheider-Kniely
The Jarosch parents missed their only daughter very much, so after they retired, they bought a small house in nearby Grulich, a town just on the border of the Glazer Kessel, located in German Silesia.
