Anton Ferdinand Krawetzki was born on December 13, 1817, and passed away on April 15, 1885. He was buried in Block 77 of Sandusky's Oakland Cemetery. The 1880 U.S. lists him as Ferdinand Krawitze, at which time he was a widower residing with his son's large family in Margaretta Township of Erie County, Ohio. John and Albertina Krawetzki/Krawitzke had six children. The four youngest children were born in Ohio, but Anton Ferdinand Krawetzki,as well as John, Albertina, and their two oldest children listed their birthplace as Prussia.

Mr. Krawetzki's tombstone features sculpted cording at the top of the stone. The clasped hands on his tombstone represents his welcome into the heavenly world.
