Ancestors of Johann Brüning
Joan's Brüning and Poppe ancestors were early settlers on the Teufelsmoor near Grasberg, where Brüning cousins have farms to this day. Prior to settling in Tüschendorf, Hinrich Brüning's ancestors lived in Neu Sankt Jürgen, near Worpswede, and earlier in Niederende, near Lilienthal. The Poppe ancestors came to Tüschendorf from Boitzen, a village halfway between Bremen and Hamburg. It is notable that our Brüning and Poppe lines were related through their mutual Kück ancestors. For further information on the settlement of the moor, read the Research Report:

The male line of the Tüschendorf Poppe family ended with the 1870 death of Johann Poppe (born 1844) in the Battle of Metz, and his father's death two years later. Johann is remembered on the Franco-Prussian War Memorial in Grasberg, shown here.
