Their 3rd son was Johann Gottlob PAECH, who was 15 years of age on the 'Zebra' in 1838.  He married 10 December 1846 in the schoolroom at Hahndorf to Johanne Eleonore SCHULZ [1825-1897].  

Eleonore  was twelve years of age on the Zebra, in 1838.  Her parents are Dorothea Elizabeth PAECH b1796 and Johann SCHULZ .


Within 15 years [1854] of arriving in the Adelaide Hills this KLENKE/RICHTER/PAECH family built their homes in an area, near Hahndorf, that became known as 'Paechtown'.  Four individual houses/barns and farms, on both sides of the road, within easy walking of each other made up 'Paechtown'.  This road was named Paechtown Road in 1964, prior to that date it was called Faehrmann's Road  [Reg BUTLER, From Byways highways].

  • No 4.   2nd son:  Christian on the left as you head east.

Of her brothers Christian had married [1848] and had children in 1851, 1855 and the last in 1860
