Michael Andersag (1799-1864) was an Austrian painter (education in Vienna, Rome and Munich). In September 1852 he arrived in New York. He lived in Syracuse/N.Y. for at least some years. In 1862 he joined the 149th N.Y.V. Infantry and was shot in Georgia 1864. In his testament (Sept. 1862) he "declares, that the paintings of art left behind for safekeeping with Mr. George Meier, Lodi Str.302, second ward, Syracuse, should be sold and the money derived therefrom should be divided among the poor wives and children of the German soldiers now at war." Since we are trying to reconstruct his life and work, we would be very happy to hear about paintings in or around Syracuse. Since he has been painting for several churches in Europe, he might have done the same in the U.S. Any information is welcome.

Many thanks,
Erich Andersag

Für meinen Schwiegervater versuche ich das Leben eines gewissen MICHAEL ANDERSAG (geboren in Südtirol) zu erforschen. Er ist wahrscheinlich jener Mann, der in Ihrer "Geschichte der Deutschen in Syracuse und Onondaga County Nebst Kurzen Biographien von Beamten und hervorragenden Buergern" auf den Seiten 140-193 erwähnt wird (Regiment 149). Haben Sie vielleicht genauere Informationen über "Michel Andersag"? Er war auch ein sehr talentierter Maler.

[For his father-in-law, searching for information on MICHAEL ANDERSAG, born in the Southern Tirol, served in the 149th Regiment during the Civil War, was also a talented painter.]
