John Bernhardt I am looking for the parents of Traugott Leberecht Bernhardt who was born in 1848 in Zullichau, Posen, Germany (now Sulechow, Poznan, Poland) and died 24th March 1896 in Rosebery, Victoria, Australia.
Traugott served for The Royal Prussian Army/The Imperial German Army in the Franco-Prussian war of 1870/1871 in which he was awarded a bronze cross.

Ernestine Emilie (Annatina Schultz) Schulz was born 16th June 1846 in Neuoberau, Posen, Germany and died 29th March 1914 in Rosebery, Victoria, Australia.

They had a son, Carl Ernst Bernhardt born 2nd November 1872 in Zullichau, Posen, Germany and died 22nd April 1930 in Footscray, Victoria, Australia.
