Church in Hohen Schönau  

    Many members of the Maass family were baptized, confirmed, and married in the Evangelical Church 

in Hohen Schönau.  However, it appears that only the bell tower remains from their time, the current brick

sanctuary was built in the 1890's.   David, Friederike and several of their grandchildren died in Hohen Schönau

and would have been buried in the church cemetery which has since been obliterated.
