PIECHOWSKI,

Louis J. "Levi"

Louis J Piechowski (Name is spelled various ways on a multitude of docu-ments - We will use Piechowski for the benefits of this family page) He was born in 1840 in Midlothian, near Edinburgh, Scotland.  Ion September 1, 1845, his father, Joseph Piechowski, and mother, Georgina Bremner / Brymner along with an older sister, Rose, immigrated to the United States,  arriving in New York City.  From there. they traveled on down and settled in Alabama,  The passenger manifest shows that Louis went by the name of Levi

 

On December 19, 1863, in Mobile, Alabama Louis married Emma Feagan.  In 1865, their first child, Annie M. was born.  Shortly thereafter the war being over, the family signed on with the group led by Lansford W. Hastings to start up a colony in Santarem, Brazil.  In July of 1867, the family, along with two of Emma's brothers, Andrew and Thomas Feagin, sailed on the "Margaret".  Three more children were born to the couple in Brazil.  For reasons not uncovered, the family decided to return to Alabama.  This return looks to have been after July 1875 (The birth of their son, Louis Jr. in Brazil) and before December 19, 1877 (His 14th wedding anniversary) when Louis died in Mobile.
