Antw: Re: [OL]Josef Friedrich WITTE

A Koetter is just a farmer - Kotten is the same word as cottage in English
The farm is just not as old as a Meier farm. But that differs from place to place. You would have to compare it to the other farms in and around Vechta
Vor dem Moor means, on the brink of the swamp, peat bog, fen ... (and yonder the moore you find Diepholz and people called "die overmoersken"
(those behind the bog)

Greetings from Diepholz
