"My father (Caspar Hans Hinrich Seemann) died in the summer of 1849. He was only sick a few days; he took sick after the battle of Idstedt. We had our house full of soliders the night before the battle. Our army was beaten and had to retreat to the south side of the Schley. We got 50 Danish soldiers in quarter by five o'clock and two hundred more before night. My father got sick the next day. He went to bed in a house my grandmother used to live in. My mother nursed him. We could not get a doctor for a few days, because of the city of Schleswig was held by our soldiers, and there was not a doctor in the country. The Danish soliders abused my father. They said he had been a soldier and was wounded in the battle of Idstedt. My sister Marie could talk the Danish language. She was raised by an uncle who lived further north where they spoke both languages. She told the officers that we requartered in our house. They drove the soldiers away and got an army surgeon who gave father some medicine but he died a few days later. We had no soldiers the day he was buried, only my mother and we children were allowed to follow him to the grave. My mother told us he was 62 years old. He was a strong man. My mother managed the farm until the war was over, when our affairs were settled by the administrator. My brother, Peter, got the home place. We children got 400 German thalers, $300 each, and my mother was well provided for during her life."
