    Notes 
    • We know of Eva mostly through oral family history passed on to LF from the Fausak family in Plettenburg, Germany in 1998. We are told that Ewa's son Emil was illigitimate, but that her father was named Johann.

      Family lore suggests that Emil may have been a natural child to Ewa, fathered out of wedlock by a neighboring farmer for whom Ewa worked. It is conceivable that Ewa never married, and that Johann may have been her father, or brother, or another close relative, who took Ewa and the child in care.

      According to the recollections of Ewa's grandson Karl in 2000, Johann, Ewa, and Emil fled (or were forcibly moved by the Russians) to the Saratov area (on the Volga River) during World War I. Ewa returned to Pomocna in 1918 to find their house destroyed; they (Ewa and Emil) were said to have lived in a cave for while until accommodations were arranged. There was no recollection of Johann having returned to Pomocna; he may have died in Russia.

      Eva's age is assumed based only on the birthdate of her son. Her relationship to Johann Fausak and Anna nee Ziegner is speculative and may not be correct. Of the other possibilities for Johann Fausak, Johann Friedrich Fausak (*1828) apparently died before 1856 and was not likely to have been Eva's father. There was a Johann born in 1840 to Johann and Anna nee Redmann, who could have been Eva's father.

      Ewa apparently left the Lutheran Church and joined the Brudergemeinde, a denomination to which her ancestors in Plettenburg still belong.
