Province Brandenburg. He married in 1849

Caroline Wilhelmine "Minnie"JUNGE (1816-1874) born in Oderberg .

Files tell the Marowskis were the very first who in 1850 applied for a
permit to emigrate  from Oderberg,  near Berlin, to the USA at the authorities
In these years many Germans emigrated, because the revolution for more
civil rights in 1848 failed and there was big disappointment  about the
now installated police state without any democracy in the Kingdom.

In April 1850 the couple sailed by ship "Ocean" from Bremerhaven to Baltimore and arrived 1st June. His profession was given as merchant.
(Name misspelled : MAROUSKY,)
Their newborn baby Aurora, born only 14.March 1850, was well during the trip

They settled in Baltimore. In fall 1850 they had a merchandise and a starch fabrication and seem to be quite happy.

                                                                                                 In 1855 Minnie wrote home a very sad  letter. Sounds she was very ill and longed to be home in Oderberg.

Minnies youngest sister Amalie JUNGE (*1821-1898) was the last one to emigrate in 1856 after the death of their mother JUNGE in Oderberg. Seems she met a quite wealthy  man
K.F.( Karl Franz??) Roemmele ( *??-1869),
general merchand, and married 11.Aug 1859 in McKinney in Collin County. On12.Nov 1859 their son W.F.C."Charlie" Römmele was born.

When K.F.Römmele also died already 14.May 1869, Amalie owned 6000 ac and 3000 cattle in the W.Davis Survey.

The Roemmele family origins from Germany, state Wuertemberg, near Heidelberg, and probably came to the US in abt.1851 .
Probably it was Amalie who offered the Minnie-family to join them in Collin County and so the Marowskis moved to McKinney in abt.1860.

Amalie JUNGE applies for emigration permit  1856:
