   He descended from an old Saxon family, which originates from the end of 13th century.

In appreciation of his big services King appointed him a mine starost for whole Silesia and decorated him with The Order Of The Red Eagle 3rd class. In his testament he made a wish to be buried on the Steelworks’ Cemetery. His funeral gathered the masses. 

               

  He was buried in a lovely, neo-classic tomb, which was destroyed by the explosion of hidden weapon in the period of Silesian Plebiscites (April 1922).
