Show Summary Details


In 1902, Jakob Lang, originally form Ernsbach, District Oehringen, settled in the picturesque village of Gross-Süssen, to trade in French horses and cattle. He married and raised a family in Gross-Süssen. Unfortunately his life ended in 1918 from an undisclosed illness, and both of his half-brothers, first Louis and then Leopold, moved to Süssen from Ernsbach to join the widow and the family business. The business prospered and Hugo Lang, son of Leopold, in 1989 described their near-idyllic rural existence, their religious training and practices, social life, school life and sports activities.
