Carsten and Catharina lived in a region called "Altes Land" not far from Hamburg. Both Carsten's and Catharina's parents were farmers. The region is still known for their many beautiful fruit trees.

Carsten was born in Ostmoorende. He was first married with Elisabeth Harms and took over her family farm in Rübke. With her he had two sons, Carsten and Hinrich. When Elisabeth died and left him with two little boys he soon got married again.

Catharina Meyer was born in Francop.

With Catharina Carsten had again two boys, Johann Jakob and Wilhelm.

But Catharina also died early. Now his first sons had grown up however and could help on the farm.

Later my grandmother Anita, her sister Martha and their cousin Willy would inherit the farm as all other children of their uncles had died in the war. They then gave the farm to Johannes Heitmann (uncle Hannes and aunt Lene) who had already looked after the farm before.
