Ferdinand Patscheider (1848-1897) married with Adelheid Schuchter (1854-1911) in Pfunds on April 29, 1878. At the side of Ferdinand, a forester, she is destined to have a turbulent life. As a civil servant forester, he is always assigned to new posts and has to set off again and again with child and cone. These many stations document the birthplaces of the five children of the couple:
- Therese, born 1879 in Pfunds, marries 1910 Albin Redl, Linz, mother of Gundl Janota.
- Anton, born 1882 and Richard, born 1883 in Berwang (Lechtal).
- Maria Magdalena, born 1887 in Klausen, becomes a teacher in Sterzing, a nervous condition brings her to Hall in Tyrol, from 1938 her trace is extinguished.
- Ida, born 1892 in Mayrhofen, teacher, marries Heinrich Müller, stage designer in Bern (son Berthold born 1923).
Ferdinand was feared as a forester, but as a private citizen he was a very welcome guest everywhere. Poachers had to watch out for him, and with his love of singing, which he passed on to his children, he embellished many a village festival. Since the financial situation of a small civil servant was very tight at that time, it was decided to give the two oldest children Therese and Anton to Aunt Therese, the sister of their mother. She was married to Dr. Niederleitinger, the oldest wound surgeon in Austria in Rohrbach (Upper Austria). The Niederleitinger couple had no descendants, and so the two Forester children were able to enjoy an excellent education with their foster parents. The first years of secondary school we find Anton still in Freistadt.
In 1897 Ferdinand dies in Mayrhofen in the Zillertal, the cemetery in the shadow of the church no longer exists. His youngest child is five years old, for mother Adelheid a time of renunciation and hardship begins, but nevertheless, with God's and the sympathetic help of other people, it is possible to give all the children an education. The two sons are even able to begin and successfully complete their studies.
