Piety

Some of our Hutsteiner family members were evidently very pious. Some donation letters to the church and parish in Wegscheid have remained from them. Thomas Hutsteiner was one of them, also he donated several times. With his first  donation letter from 1791 he donated 50 Gulden and asked to a hold a church mass for him and his wife every year on 27th of October. For the pastor there were 45 Kreuzer (1 Gulden = 60 Kreuzer), for the Organist 12 Kreuzer and for the acolytes 2 Kreuzer calculated, which resulted in about 50 years of church masses prepaid.
