records and documents:
List of children is probably incomplete, since only partial church records from Drahnow are available.
Church records from the 1800s refer to "Gross Drahnow" and "Klein Drahnow" (or "Dranow"). But Meyer's only lists "Drahnow". Probably by 1913 the two had merged into a single village.
George Stürz, whose name also appears in the Stieglitz church records, might be his brother. George's son, Johann Heinrich Stürz married Anna Elisabeth Bleich. Moritz Sterz is listed as a baptismal sponsor for two of their children.
